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!

I guarantee if this look came out in 2009...people would have went ape tits shits all over the car drooling puddles. Just like they did the current 5th gen.

It looks very contrived. It lacks the continuity of the 2010-2013's.

I love everything Camaro, therefore I am liking the 2014 car. I would so love to be able to buy a 14 Z/28 upon release. Unfortunately, that is not going to happen. I would settle for a 12/13 ZL1, also not happening. The car for me will be a 2013 1LE in a couple of years. With that said, I do like the 2014 car a lot. Maybe I'll pick one of those up some years after I pick up the 1LE? Definately, good times to be a car enthusiast and a Camaro Fan!

The proportions don't look good in the front. The back reminds me of my old Prelude. I think the 2010 to 13 will be an instant classic.

highly doubt that speculation, if this was my choice back in 2009, I would've gotten the Mustang I test drove, instead of this Prelude-looking thing. 1rst impressions are a big deal, and this refresh doesn't look good at all to me. It would be foolish to buy one and have the mind set to say 'it looks awesome'. I guess one can always mod/replace the front and rear bumpers, because it just isn't appealling at the get go...the top brand cars(ZL1/Z28) are already dressed to impress, but are unaffordable to majority of the public.

I agree, I would have not gotten by '11 SS, if it looked like the '14.

The '14 look is starting to grow on me. I actually like the front end....maybe even more than the '10-'13. The rear is still up in the air. I need to see it in person to get a good opinion.

I like the new look but I also understand that some cannot handle change very well.

First Pics of 2014 Camaro

I like what Chevrolet has done with the refresh. However this is how I would want my 2014 Camaro to look...

Nicer!

Can you do a rear end also?

How about a thread where those of you artistically inclined offer up your rendition of what the 14 refresh could have been? Rules are you must submit front and rear with no chrome anywhere.
