2014 SS vs Z28 rear ends compared

Sooo... here are the 2014 Z28 and SS rear ends for side by side comparison.

My thoughts...Z28 beats SS in the rear styling hands down. Seeing these together makes me really hate the new SS rear. The Z28 tail lights aren't half bad, but those SS tail lights are horrid! And that SS rear diffusor looks like an afterthought...kinda like it isn't finished...ugh!

For those that don't like the tail lights maybe there will be different options...

Do not like at all. Yack.

Honestly, the all of the cosmetic changes they've made since 2010, I have not liked much.

Maybe these tail lights will grow on me, but right now my first impression isn't a postiove one.

I'd just swap a Z/28 rear fascia onto an SS.

The rear looks better in these photos than it did in the stills yesterday but I still dislike the lights and the gaping hole for the license plate.

The SS rear does not look good.

Unfortunately from the looks of the wrap around lights, you will not be able to retrofit a '10-'13 SS rear onto it.

Sad.

The shape looks identical. Maybe if you get an SS you will be able to eventually swap for the Z28 tails!?!?!?

Is that RS versus non-RS? (edit: +1)

The Z/28 is a 1SS with less than no options and the performance works. It will not be for posers.

I already know I cannot afford nor really want one. And there will only be a limited supply. A halo car without Halos.

It is now clear who the Z/28 is aimed at. Most if not all of those people could not care less what the taillights look like.

Cars look real good, its not the 2010 car but it does not need to be its all grown up and it looks good, remember the 67 and 68 where not the same car and the 69 was not the same as any of the early cars.
