The SS models and V6 models most likely will. The ZL1 will continue to look new. I wouldn't call a rear end change a "refresh" or give it the power to look outdated. Takes more than that. Then again the 2010-2013 MY look better than the 2014MY, anyhow.

Wow. I really like the '14 1LE. The blacked out hood makes the vent fit right in. After looking at the side by side pics, the '14 looks more modern than my '11. The rear shot of the 1LE makes the back look slimmer. While I do like the older taillights a little better, the '14 is not ugly just a little plain. Loving the exposed hardware in the back. Overall the new design takes away some of the blocky look of the older car.

And if you like the look of the Z28 you will like the non-RS 1LE. Lower it, add the splitter, side skirts, and remove the wrap and it's the same look. You even get better looking wheels.

While the pre '14 V6 Camaro without the spoiler was the best looking stock Camaro to me, the '14 non-RS 1LE is now my favorite. Make mine a 1SS, non-RS, red with Recaros. After all it's not what the 1LE looks like, it's what it can do.

I am so glad so many like the pre '14 Camaro better. Anyone want to make me an offer on my gorgeous 2011? It's for sale! Get one of the last Camaros before GM ruined it. It even has the coveted Camaro steering wheel.

Jesus Christ dude! Why do you feel the need to bombard every thread you're a part of with pics of your car? We get it, you own a "timeless" '13.


As for everyone else, we're aware you're glad you got your 10-13 when you did. But really, come on. Who really cares? Let me answer that: No one! Some like the refresh and some don't. Let's leave it at that. Make room for the '14MY+ owners instead of alienating them as you've done consistently for the last month.

But I will be sure to give them a call, doubt ill buy from them. I have a pretty good salesman who I feel "goes out the way for me" from Merollis Chevy. But checking for pricing couldn't hurt especially since that's whats holding up my decision between the 2013s and 2014s

Glad you have a salesman you trust. You may already know, but Becky's on this forum here. Hope you get a car you love for a good price.

That 2014 1LE looks too much like a glorified 2014 SS. Thank god the ZL1 kept the 2010-2013 looks except for the rear and even then the rear isn't bad.

Really like the way the 14 looks. But imho a camaro needs stipes, can't wait to see all color + stripe options

Added a quick photoshopwork to the attached files, how can anybody dislike that front?

I guess I'm confused. I thought our cars were designed to be "retro". If the '10-'13 will look dated compared to the '14+, does that mean we'll be retro-retro? Isn't "dated" the look we're after?

(not really confused, just being facetious)

I guess all those that were waiting in the 2014 refresh showing and said they didn't like it, then they said they were going ahead and getting a 2013 didn't help sales any last month.
We will just have to wait for the first month 2014's go on sale to see if things keep going down or go back up....

I could be wrong, but the bottom of the '14 looks the same as the '10-'13...pretty sure the current 1LE splitter will still work on it????
