If that's it, I'm not feeling it. If the fenders are the same I'd put a ZL1 front on.

The only reason they are showing it in New York is because it IS done. Opinions were gathered a lonnggggggg time ago on how it looked.

I would like to see a better picture of the rear end....

Overall I think it looks pretty darn good!

And my wait will go on.

I'm NOT the least bit impressed!!! The front looks generic and wimpy (ala 80's and 90's cars) and the rear...(speachless). No cowl hood look??? The wheels, uh no. And they left the weakest part (interior) alone (why?).

Thinking C7 now (there goes another $20K). Maybe a used (but babied ZL1).

Looks like an opportunity for someone to create a replacement insert along the lines of the Hotwheels/'68-'69 "stacks"...

2cnd Chance, there's hope yet for your favorite hood...

I don't get the reveal a day before the auto show. Unless they have something major to reveal other than the refresh :cough Z/28 cough: it makes no sense they didn't wait the other 24 hours.

I still prefer the pre refresh 5th gen. I think they dropped the ball from what I have seen.

Those pictures just put a huge damper on me wanting to buy a new Camaro. I may end up buying a used 1LE.


Edit: hey just hit 1k posts.

I'll wait and see for tomorrow but I am very disappointed GM revealed it today. It makes no sense for them to do that.

I don't see how you can make a mistake like this. You have to schedule an appearance. I doubt they would just roll up the refresh Camaro and say hey, you wanna talk about this today?

I hear ya but I just can't believe these are the pictures that GM want's to show off to promote the change.... Something just seems really weird about this release.

The only thing I can think of is this wasn't the big reveal and something else is in store as the main attraction.

It looks like it has the Euro tail lights under the tape. If that's the case, GM has just lost a future sale. I hate those lights with a passion.

THIS JUST IN......

GM announces that the rough draft of the 2014 Camaro revision was mistakenly sent to a NY talk show.
