I waited for the 2014s for a reason. Not to mention, I believe the tails resemble the 1st generation. Which happens to be my favorite

The refresh looks like an upgrade by the side by side comparisons. Just really comes down to which one the new owner prefers.

I think most Camaro owners will wait till the 6th gen. The refreshed 14' is not really worth the coin for just being what appears only to be a cosmetic upgrade.

So was the 13 worth the coin over a 12, a 12 over the 11, a 11 over the 10? I say it will be worth it to many people but not to some just as a lot of people didn't like the changes they made in the 12's and others didn't like the my link in the 13's but obviously many people did.

Probably not. The only reason I got a 13 was because the 1LE came out which was worth the coin. Other than that I just see the price increases and it's getting up there in price. But if you want a brand new car, then you buy at the time what's new.

The '14s look like LEGO cars. Have to see it person to justify a purchase(maybe for it's uniqueness..)

The Camaro is an extremely well-known brand with a very solid identity. If people look at the back of the new 2014 and the first thing that pops into their mind is "it looks like a Honda Prelude" then whoever was responsible for the design completely failed to uphold and maintain the brand identity of a Camaro. The back of the 2010-13 Camaro is distinct, solid, strong and unique; when you see it you don't think "that looks like...." something else. It looks like exactly what it is; a Camaro. The refresh back-end doesn't look powerful, muscular, dynamic or even sporty. It's a very pedestrian, uninspired generic style that's been around awhile and used by many other brands.

Attachment 536904Attachment 536903Attachment 536906
Attachment 536905 and finally:Attachment 536907

The new front is okay but looks pinched, flat and horizontal compared to the previous style's open, flowing sculpted look. When I read post after post saying "maybe if I see it in person it will grow on me" then I know the style change has missed the mark. When I first saw a picture of the 2006 concept car I didn't have to say to myself "maybe if I see it in person I'll like it"... my reaction to the pictures was "WOW, that looks bad-ass! I WOULD LOVE to have a car that looks like that!". Not only does the "refresh" not raise that bar, it doesn't even reach it. It just looks flattened and horizontal to me; not muscular like it's predecessor and the concept car.

Attachment 536911Attachment 536912Attachment 536918Attachment 536919

In 2009 as soon as my local dealer could order I ordered mine SIGHT-UNSEEN having not seen one "in person" nor even the color I ordered. In about 3 weeks I will have had my 2010 Camaro for 4 years and never once, not even for a minute have I regretted buying it, gotten tired of looking at it or driving it.

My post is not a personal attack against you Scott, don't misunderstand me. It's just that the Camaro is such an American icon, and the 2010 style was such an inspired effort that I don't want to see that be the "peak" and everything from that point on becomes gradually watered-down, tame, corporate-committee-designed shadows of formerly great styling.
What Doc said is totally right on. the 14s are nice too, just not as nice as before. It's about messing with the brand identity too much.

I dont know. Evertime I have seen a new model style for a camaro its always been "woooow". Now im like "whaaaa?". Either way im sure the drivetrain will be great.....this car seems to have devided everybody. When the 5th gen came out we all loved it,now were split. I feel guilty for not liking this one. Ive always owned a camaro, since I was 17 and I love all camaros gens. This one is not a camaro to me, you cant just mash up a random design and slap a camaro name on it and sell it. If we'll love anything with a camaro badge, then whats holding them back from just pulling another random design to produce knowing we'll buy anything with "camaro" on it? Thats just me but I do think it will be a great performing car and wish the new owners a bunch of fun for every mile they drive in it. Just my 2 cents tho...

I totally agree. I am sooo happy with my 2010 SS. The design team really went backwards with the 2014 IMO.
