Looks like it's for Extra down force that the stock wing couldn't generate.

When they install them on Indy cars it's called a wicker bill for more downforce...

The more See this car the madder I get. If it wasn't for those tail lights, this would already be ordered or in my garage. To bad they didn't make it a year earlier.

went to a local dealer this weekend to ask what their allocation was for the Z they won't know for a couple more weeks said I could put down a deposit. The new tail lights look so bad on all the Camaros what were the guys at Chevy thing I wonder if they will go back to the previous ones?

With all this car has to offer, it seems illogical that a just set of tail lights would be a deal breaker.

They couldn't have come up with a new wing for the Z28?That seems like an after thought or a last minute fix!

This. According to a friend in the engineering department there will be a cheat sheet included so you can look up ideal setting for the more popular tracks around the country.

I don't think the point is to win car shows with it. It's like watching the Videos of Carroll Shelby talk about his race car development back in the day. They finally put one of these things on them and I think it limited top speed a hair, but increased handling in the corners enough that it improved lap times.

I was thinking the same thing. If the appearance of a small part of the Z/28 plays at all into your decision to buy one or not, save your self some money.....you are not the right guy for this car. You are willing to deal with the elimination of almost all creature comforts.....but damn those tail lights!

I find it hard to believe a buying decision on a 75k sports/track car would come down to whether or not you like the tail lights....but hey....I've seen crazier things happen!!

My understanding on the new tail light design was because of laws that require the rear tail lights to be seen from the side. i dont like them either, they look too much like a 90's model acura tail lights to me. It wouldn't stop me from getting this sweeet beast.

Like the Stingray?

Yeah, they're so bad it's a deal breaker because if this was the look in 2009 I never would have bought a Camaro. Of that I have no doubt. All the controversy over the headlights and then they throw this on the rear.
