What's up with that itty bitty spoiler on the non-rs. Looks too feminine for the over all masculine design.

I think I am very happy to have a 2013 model, the last year of one of the best designed cars of my generation.

Although... I will be jealous if it gets a bump in power and/or suspension upgrades. Looks wise.... ehhh.... it's okay, I still expect it to grow on all of us after a few months.

We'll be welcoming the future members with these cars so I think we should get used to it and simply embrace the design.

That's just crazy!
They should give the refresh crowd their own board so we don't have to continually mock them here......They can call it "The Fugly Fourteens"

I know GM thinks this is like the steering wheel change where people griped, and eventually got over it. However this mid cycle enhancement seriously makes the car less desirable. The execution is terrible, and honestly something no one asked for. Between me, my wife, and my business, we have owned four 5th gens now..and I have absolutely zero desire to get a 14 or 15.

I think the ulimate question would be....does the changes that GM made for 2014 make someone who would not have bought the old design buy the new one. I think the answer is no.

My personal thought is that this shows the importance of Bob Lutz, and what can make it through the pipeline without him there.

You know what this refresh really means? It means that if someone asks what kind of car I have I tell them "2010 Camaro" ..emphasis on the "2010".

As always, will wait to see it in person before making final judgement, but even in pictures I don't get the need for that chrome strip along the front in the RS package. Looks tacky, and doesn't belong on a Camaro IMO. Maybe a Malibu, but not the Camaro. Throws off the whole front end for me. The taillights I will have to see in person as well. Some pictures they look ok, others not so much.

Diffuser does look way to high. Not sure what the point of that is?

Luckily for so many here there are plenty of 2010-2013s around to keep then satisfied for years to come. Right now there are a ton of them for sale.

The best looking current Camaros to me are the V6es. My Camaro looks a bit truckish (blocky) from the front. And the ZL1s are even less attractive from head on. The side of the Camaro is the best view. But the roof looks too squashed down and the belt-line looks too high. The wheels are too big.

But even though I think ZL1s are a bit ugly, I would buy one in a second if I could afford one.

The 2014 changes are pretty subtle and most people will not be able to tell a 2014 from the previous years. At some point adding another ugly comment is a bit tiring. Wait until you see the cars in person. Then if you still do not like it, get a Challenger, the best looking muscle car to me. And who knows, the next Mustang may be a stunner, it has better proportions than the Camaro.

Flame suit on!
