I like your approach. All this "hate" and almost no one has seen one in person!

If the Z/28 looks so good, why not just buy an SS. and add the necessary pieces from GM / aftermarket and have the identical look? Should look equally great with 20" wheels and should not be too hard to pull off.

Personally, as a GM and Camaro fan, I'll just wait until I can see an SS in person before forming my opinion.

Mustang and Challenger sales are about to get a lot stronger.

Hate to say it but GM is heading in the wrong direction.
I pre-ordered my 2010 Camaro and fell in love with the car from day 1.

But if GM continues to change the Camaro in this way, they will lose a lot of customers (including myself).

I've owned 5 different Camaros, but this latest design makes me re-think my future choice in cars.

Is it possible that one is a V-6, one is a TT V-6 (hence the dual exhause) and then one is the V-8 (SS).

I hope no one is deterred from buying a '14 Camaro because of negative comments they see here....A car is only new once, and there's nothing else like it...Some variety in the 5thGen for a change, all good...I look forward to seeing them on the road and here in the forums...

I'm keeping my '11 regardless...I don't flip cars on a whim...The '14s just took down the others a peg in value, imo...With a choice for a new look vs. a four year run of the same look, new and used '14s and '15s will do better on the used and new market...They are just cars, boys and girls, all subject to the same game as the rest of the makes...

The chance I wouldn't take is not getting one of the 5thGens at all, regardless of the year....The 6thGens are not too far away, and much more dramatic changes will be in store there...Then what are you gonna do...lol...

Well...I like it. But not enough different to trade in my '10 for. Maybe if it had the hood vents, but not enough change.

I will put it in other words, why cant GM get it right first time and force us to buy and customize?

That is aint cheap man

Theyre WAY too narrow for that big halo, and overall look distorted/bugeyed without the grill overlapping the turn signals.. the 2010-13 masks this

OT but it seems like they slapped on a G35 spoiler
Yeah but why would GM put a Quad exhaust on a V6 ???
