What's wrong with vette? It's also got the DIC and the IRS that the C4 corvettes had.

You can do body work if you want to. But this car would not look or be the same without that dash of Corvette.

don't see it the 68 is two tail light assemblies and the 2010 is four like the vette.

I think the one piece taillights are never going to come back. They look too "80's/90's".

I agree though I hate how they copied the vettes tail lights. 4 tail lights = Vette, imo.

But it still looks great.

For some reason people dog the 90's vettes. If there was no 90's ZR1, there would be no 2008 ZR1.

Furthermore, the 90's vettes dominated (and still do today) auto cross circuits.
And the ZR1 broke the 24 hour top speed record for a production car, and the LT1 was right behind it the entire way.

I understand what you're saying, but I don't see how you don't see the similarities. Look again.

i agree the rs lights arent really any different, but I have a black car maybe thats why i dont notice it. I agreed the rear end did look a little like the corvette or does, the thing I didnt like before i got mine, but now I like. In my opinion the design is great and love it, but if they had a rear end that was more camaroish I would probably dig that a little more. But to me for a stock production car, they didnt leave anything out. Granted theres a few minor wishes from people here and there, but aftermarket can cure that.

Corvette has maintained the 4 tail lights since the C2. Do they still make corvair or chevelles? No.

4 tail lights is a corvette staple.

my 2 cents: I consider myself a decent camaroaholic and the lights look like nothing in the DNA of all other prior Camaros....I did not like them on the first concept and still don't like them now....at all ,even if they were LED

Boy you really see how much more sculpted this new body shape is compared to the original car when you look at that back end shot of the 67.

And seeing the back of the concept next to the production you realize how close they were able to get to the concept, although I still would have liked the concept's slightly wider tail lights.

Still a beautiful car all the way around and going to go down as a classic in American car styling.

Not sure why the tail lights must always look like older versions. I wonder if the guys who had the '70 Camaros freaked out because the tail lights looked nothing like the '69 tails. As long as it looks good and the car looks bad ass from the back (it does).

and if there were two lights in the back, would you say thats a "toyota" staple or something? i think they look fine, and even if they dont, it wouldnt hold me back from buying one. Most cars have ugly rear lights, but you just gotta deal with it

You won't be looking at your own taillights anyway! That's for Mustang and ricer owners to see

Still don't see it . (Even with big numbers) the 68 is not seperated by the bumber like the 2010. When you take them out of a 68 they come out as one unit not two completly seperate pieces. the look is one tail light assembly vs two on the 2010(per side). I you want to compare it properly to a early car look at the 1970 in the post above.

Essentially: adverb - in a fundamental or basic way; in essence

I didn't say that it's exactly the same. My response was to the statement that the lights should look like those in the late '60s. Well, the tail lights look similar to those used on the RS models in 1968. And, yes, in essence, the taillights are the same design.
