They should have deleted the rear side marker being that the lights somewhat wrap around the side of the rear. IMO
I think they did the LED's to keep up with the rest of cars on the road. Seems like every other vehicle on the road has rear LED's

a split front bumper design and round tails like a 1970 Z28 would of done it for me.

I know this car shouldn't look the same as 2010-2013 but I still just can't get over the fact that it lost the muscle car look.

It just kind of looks like a sumo wrestler sat on the hood. And the lines just aren't the same. The 2010-2013 models have beautiful lines. I just don't see it in this one.

I don't know how to say it exactly but this car just kind of doesn't look cohesive. The back and front don't match well and the side profile just kind of makes the car look smashed in the front.

If I had one word to describe this car it would be - Awkward -

I am still going to wait for final judgement until I see one for real.
I was hoping the V6 versions would look better than what I have seen so far. I did notice the non RS V6 red one had no chrome strip on the front and the grille is styled similar to the stock grille now.
As of right now I am not feeling the changes were for the better.

Recently saw the rear of a prelude on the road and it is unsettling to see the resemblance. It lost its aggressive look compared to the mustang. I am sure if those brilliant designers at gm had just a little more flexibility, we would have beed given the first 4 door Camaro.

Not a big fan of the chrome around the upper edge of the grille, in fact I hate it.
The lower grille looks over sized and out of place.
The rear tail lights are a nice throwback to the late 60's but the euro tail lights look better.

My next car won't be a camaro for sure...

Maybe I am being a bit harsh. It's an 'okay' looking car. I just won't be buying one

I could live with that front end, but I hate the rear end.

The NPP exhaust was available on the 2013 V6 too. It didn't get much attention. There are very few videos of it on here.

The exhaust was painted black at the auto show. It was stated that it might make production but would likely add cost. They were undecided on it at the time.

No. NPP (dual mode exhaust) is an option and is only standard on the ZL1, not the SS or V6.
