Not that anybody gives a hoot, but I really like the changes of the '14. I would say the most drastic change that is plainly obvious are the taillights and the rear license plate area, thus getting the most attention. Though I was not totally fond of the taillights and the license plate area of the '14, they are not deal breakers when it comes to the overall changes. I love the front end, it looks more aggressive and less "cartoonish" as some other keen observers have mentioned .

Adding the option for Recaro's is a huge bonus, and improving the HUD is big plus also. The '14 SS/1LE is pure badassedness

My earlier post about the taillights was based on the fact that this gen.was based on the 69, it only makes sense to bring the taillights closer to that look for the remaining years of this body style. I like them!
To me the 5th generation logically, is the best design to suit our time.

I was a fan of the 4th generation, but that when the 4th generation was launched.

Camaro progress with time and that is expected due to the development of engineering.

Thanks homie

Hopefully the incentives will start to kick-in around that time. I'm pretty sure the rest of us impatient members are going to short end of the offers.

Oh how I loathe this simplistic argument.

Have you seen the Mona Lisa in person? If not you can not claim its a great painting until you see it in person and up front.

Have you seen the Egyptian Pyramids? What you haven't? You can't claim them to be a marvel of their time until you have.

I can look at a pile of crap on a picture and know that it looks like a pile of crap. I don't need to see it in person.

There are more than enough high def, up close, far away, unlit, lit up on different colors to know that its hideous. And its magnified by by the giant square whole for the license plate and half its ass being covered by unpainted plastic forming that line right down the middle.

The front isn't much better thanks to 1990's style chrome stripping.

Get a life, man. It's sufficient to say you don't like it. Some people do.

The problem is that the Pyramids and Mona Lisa you're looking at the overall object. The pictures of the 2014 we're zero'ing in on just the front bumper and the rear taillights. I don't know how to describe it but it stands out more in pictures than it does in person. In person, what used to look like a big deal blends in with the rest of the car and looks great. It's hard to describe how that works, but it's the case with most car pictures.

I agree with that . I don't know why they didn't use the same style for the 2014.

One more thing they did to make the Camaro European friendly, it will fit their long license plate. So we lose beauty and aesthetic's so they can sell a couple thousand cars overseas. Which by the is why they also changed to the ugly European taillights.

Mona Lisa is kind of unimpressive in person.

Why wouldn't the wide Euro plate fit the 2010-2013 area? There's nothing impeding the width that I know of.

I HATED the tail lights when i first saw them. Then i drove up to NY and saw them in person and was on the phone with my dealership to order a 2014. They do look better in person. But thats ok if you dont like them. I dont care for every single thing on any car. Hell i would change things on pretty much anything. Looks of the PS3, my paper shredder, toothbrush, roof on house, etc. Its called customizing. Either way its still a Camaro.
I dont really care for the license plate on the 2014 but guess what i still ordered one and i am still counting down the days till it arrives.

Its ok if you dont care for something but we are all adults and we should show each other respect to. We are here to enjoy Camaros.
