I was feeling good about the "refresh" but after seeing these pics....... Not so much.

My God this redesign is horrendous. They killed the look of this car. What a shame... the Z28 could have been incredible, but not with the redesigned front and rear.

Wasn't that reported in the thread from the NY auto show? From some of the guys on site. That's what I'm remembering and was surprised that these mufflers weren't painted. Maybe just the SS?

Liked the squished front end on the SS and Z/28 mock ups.
but the rear on all of them are terrible.

What they should have done is gone full LED tails like the Technostalgics instead. that would get far more looks than those.

those are garbage..

another WTF is why is the RS V6 getting the V8 NPP exhaust?..

Will be interested in seeing the first 3-6 month sale figures - the chart will tell us what people think of the redesign.

Yes, that will be the telling tale. If the sales figures improve, it will mean they have tapped into a different market IMO.

Sorry...the new design is not growing on me at all. I still think the tail lights are completely hideous and the front is a step backward as well. Seems like GM went backward just like they did back in '74. The '70-'73 was a great design '74-'77 was horrible, '78-'81 mehh in between but still not that great.

I just have a feeling the sales numbers are going to be down some once the '14 comes out. Lets hope they get it right with the 6th Gen.

Good news.....I think the resale value on my '10 is going to continue to stay about where it's at.

The rear reminds me of a 98 Honda Prelude...

I'll be honest....as of right now if something happened to my '10 and I couldn't get a used '10-'13, I think I would pass on the Camaro. I really feel like they shot the Camaro in the foot.

The car is somewhat awkward looking. I wonder who designed and approved these modifications. I am glad I didn't wait for 2014.

How can they make such a success like the 5th gen and then completely make a piece of shit like this after is beyond me. Looks like a Honda Prelude from the raer.
