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!

Why would anyone give a crap what Honda Prelude tail-lights look like?....So what if the Camaro has the same basic style?...They are not identical...I never knew what Honda tail-lights looked like til now...lol...so what?...

Sure, the new Camaro ones wrap around...bfd....lol...They look just fine...Pretty sad to think a big difference for some between the Honda and Camaro needs to be the tail-lights...That's missing out on the whole car entirely...lol...whatever...

^It only matters if you prefer the 2010-2013 rear. I do. If I'm fortunate enough to get a Z/28 I'll change the rear and rear lights to the euro design. Thanks for asking!

You're welcome...lol....And yes it's a preference...plain and simple...but a legitimate reason to bash the '14? and suggest it shouldn't even be purchased by first time buyers? or be boycotted entirely?...stop making them?...lol...I would think not...

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.
LOl Man this guy cheevey jumps on every Camaro 2014 thread all the time and always SAYS THE SAME SH8T I don't know to me alot of these guys sound like haters maybe because their cars are gonna look out dated? or they can't afford to trade in for a new one or buy one. If you don't like it just say you don't. You don't have to go on every single thread saying you don't and repeating the same stuff over and over like some gentlemen here. I appreaciate GM for trying to please the Camaro community and they did everything (mostly) everything people wanted and now that they did they hate it?

To me, the Euro rear end is far superior to this disgrace of a refit. I just finish talking to a chevy dealer in Florida this past weekend and his dealership increased the asking prices on their in stock 2013's stating they don't expect too many sales of the 2014's when they hit the showroom floor.
