I guess Chevrolet is still undecided as to whether or not people will approve of their redesign, so they keep their flagship Camaro partially redesigned. That is my guess.

The ZL1 on the carrier has a sharkfin on the trunk because it is a convertible. All Camaro convertibles have their sharkfin on the trunk since they cannot mount the antenna on the folding soft top.

Also anyone have an idea why the ZL1 on the car carrier has a red sharkfin on the trunk?

If Camaro sales go up in 2014 those that don't like the changes are going to be eating our words.
..meh, only words, still a shame that GM ruined a beauty.

Just face it.
How many ppl were disappointed when the Corvette changed from 1968-1982.
Still during all this time it managed to keep it sexy appeal.
Their always going to be something you hate or love about a car!
I betcha once they 2014 will be driving down the road you wish you had one, IMHO.

Hope that when I see the car in reality the design starts to grow on me!

highly doubt it, 2010-2013 models will still turn more heads, imo. The 2014 models will be like the 2013 mustangs, look OK, just not as nice as the previous year.

I just don't think the new rear look works with the old front end. It's like the fronts too big for the back. Clearly when the gm team went for the refresh, they redesigned the whole automobile to be more sleek and slender, hence the smaller grill and headlight space and the single slim tailight area. This look is great for everymodel but the ZL1. The combination of old and new does not compliment the ZL1 at all. In fact, the 2014 ZL1 is the least attractive of the new Gen V.5 line up.

Hell man I wouldn't go past the 12's. That hill assist in the 13's seems like communism to me. That refresh in the 14 is alright, I have my 11 though and I'm set. If I was back in the market I'd find an 11 or 12 stick shift a dealership can't move and make off with an SS at a nice price.

However you guys want people on topic so if I had to choose, I mean if I really had to, between a 13 or 14 I'd go with the Challenger.

It's probably the same deal with the rear diffuser being wrapped. Early preproduction model not using the actual parts that will be sold. Notice it doesn't have the ZL1 badging either.

shoot to tell you the truth.. i didn't want anything pass 2011... i didn't want the 12 because of the headers and the leather on the dash.. also the steering wheel.. it wasn't unique like the 2010-2011.
and i was pretty luck to get a 2011 2SS/RS brand new with 108 miles on them last year in June!

What about the 12's and the headers? You mean the LFX and that you can't get headers for the V6? The leather on the dash is fine with me and the steering wheel isn't a problem either. But back to the topic i'd get a 13' but wouldn't want the Hill Assist. The 14's are butt ugly.
