Give it a chance? Why it's fugly. When the first pics came out of our car it was love at first sight for most of us. I had that gotta have one feeling and was ordering one first chance I could. If this was that car, most Of us wouldn't have wanted one especially me. Chevrolet took a winner, a beautiful and tuff looking car and ruined it. Fingers crossed for the next gen.

Not a fan! Sure am glad I've got a new 2013 in the garage!

Guess that's what makes it a wonderful thing to be living in these times...we've got choices!

From a similar discussion:

I googled "69 Camaro images" and scrolled down, looking for pictures of the rear end of the cars. I can see and appreciate the inspiration for the new tail light design. Modern but still relatable to the iconic '69 Camaros.

I really like the look of the new Z/28. I think the new front and rear designs look a little wider and less tall, giving the refreshed 5th gen Camaro SS a more cohesive overall appearance. I do think the SS front end looks much better than the V6, though.

If everyone had the same design taste, then all cars would look like jelly beans, I guess.

The Z/28 looks great! Disregard the IROC decal.

The new look of the 2014 Camaro just makes me want to

Whatever team of design engineers cam up with the rear end make me think the GM has gone again!

Not sure why GM didn't use this design for 2014 since it was already being used for European markets?

YES! GM should ditch the 2014 rear and use this one!
This could easily be put on the 2014. I guess you'd only need the bumper cover and 2 tail lights as the rear quarters are the same. The lights would look great tinted with the whole concave area blacked out.

I'm sure glad you told us your opinion for, what, the 8th or 9th time in this thread alone. We get it that some people don't like the changes. However, some are OK with it or are going to wait and get a close look. I understand that there are differences of opinion. What I don't understand is why the people on the negative side have to jump into every thread about the 2014 refresh, often multiple times, to repeat their opinion. I didn't like the 2010 from the back in the beginning and took a while to be OK with it and I wouldn't have a Camaro with a V6, but I'm not going to rag on the people who have one. It's still a Camaro and we're all GM/Camaro people. We just have different likes and dislikes. Someone above posted about them all being jelly beans if we liked the same things. That is right on the money. Step back and take a couple of deep breaths. You can just say you don't like it and we will respect that.

Because those lights are even worse than the refresh tail lights. The Euro spec lights are God awful ugly.

I actually like the rear end. However, that front end looks weird and kinda of thrown together. Not really feeling it.

Sorry to say it, but I still feel that these changes to the front and rear ruined the look of the car for me. Thankfully I still love my 2011.

I would rather drive my 4th gen, ride my bicycle, ride the bus, than to own one of these cars. I can appreciate the fact that it is a Camaro, but I will personally never own a V6, 5TH Gen. It's a V8, SS car or go home for me! With that said, everyone, give the new refresh a chance, wait till you see it in person before you form an opinion? We all know what they say about opinions right?
Where does it say that we must love everything GM throws at us? Remember the late 80's Nova? As for opinions, everyone has one, and when they are dropping 40 grand are most certainly entitled to them.

I saw it in person at the auto show. A lot of you guys are Trolling this too far. The car looks good in person, pics don't do the changes justice at all. Don't be like those old fart Corvette owners that whine over any change made to the car. If you don't like it, don't buy it and sell your current one. There are plenty of Toyota Yaris cars available for you to buy.

Let's see who has more internet skills and speed than me, which should be easy.

Can someone post side by side rear end views of a white 2013 1LE and a white 2014 Z/28 (nice white and black contrasting) so we can see the differences in rear end designs.

My Ipad won't let me do it, and I'm sticking to that story.

I am glad I bought my 2013 last night. While this new one is ok, I do like the rear of the 2013 much better.

Yes the wrap around is what I don't like. I don't mind the shape of the rear lights except the wrap around the corner. And they didn't need to do that as they already have rear side marker lights. ???

I was thinking of buying the 2014 Z/28 and putting the front and rear of the ZL1 (which look awesome). Now I just look at the Corvette7 site
http://www.corvette7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=291667
and saw the price of the Stingray base for $51,995! I am like hell... if the Z/28 is more then that... I think I going to pick the big brother this time.

It's only 50 or so hp less and the dam things looks amazing in Black as we have seen in the photos.
This is the only 2014 car I can't wait to see in person!
