My thoughts exactly. Maybe its like when the 1LE's initially came out, a few of the pilot cars driving around did not have the splitter installed yet either. The flaring/shaping on the bottom of the new bumper might suggest they killed 2 birds with one stone though, and their wont be a spitter with this design.

Guess we'll see in time.

The new stuff is really growing on me see all the pics on the road. Can't wait to see in person, that will be the real judge.

What a bunch of negative nancies you guys are. The redesign looks good IMO. Do you think they should have kept the current design unchanged for 100 years or so? With the exception of minor refreshes, that already happened with the 3rd and 4th gen Camaros. Ok, it was only 82-92 and 93-02, not 100 years.

I think the changes make the car look more modern. I really can't wait to read what everyone thinks when the 6th gen comes out. I hope it looks like a 2nd gen!! Really, I do!!

No one is complaining that they re designed it, people are just commenting on how the redesign doesn't look great.

Understood. However they complain without providing legitimate alternatives. Or constructive feedback.

The 1LE looks sweet with the light body color and black hood and spoiler. I like this rear better than the older one. I was considering getting a Shelby due to the old rear. But I am sold on the Z/28! Too bad it won't be available with that Matte White color

I'll be looking at these pics all night!

As is our right, unless I missed the forum rule that says otherwise.

This is a forum where we get to express our opinions. We're not a focus group brainstorming alternative ideas for GM.

It absolutely is your right. Guess I just get frustrated when I read comment after comment after comment that says more or less, I hate the redesign. Or I'm SO GLAD I got mine before they ruined the Camaro.

I like the look! The front of the 1LE looks even more sinister. The air intake is lowered. The nose/hood dropping down better aerodynamics.
The aerodynamics of the rear fascia I think is better too. You can see more of the rear axle now and not on the 10-13's. More air flow out underneath the car. Less drag.

I'm impressed with The new Stingray , vents on the rear shoulder where the airs expels out the back by the rear lights which disrupts the air/drag suction.

These designers are doing a great job of thinking outside the box and giving us cars with cutting edge technology and and exterior design that is new and different while still staying true to the heritage of these cars.

That's not an ATS. I believe that's actually a new 2014 XTS. The wheels are different than what is offered on '13s. Possibly the new Turbo V6 XTS.

No front lip spoiler on the '14 1LE?

Maybe I missed it but don't see a front lip spoiler on the 1LE.
