It's odd how people think the quad lights on the 10-13 capture the look of the first GEN more than the refresh (In the past I always thought that myself) but really the first GEN never had quad lights. They were not introduced until the second generation when the 1970 model debuted.

The more I look at them, I think the GEN5 Refresh and GEN6 capture the GEN1 the best. But that is JMHO


GEN1



GEN5



GEN6

I think there is no question that the 14/15 Z28 in Black is the sexiest Camaro ever produced. Just saying....

I think, ironically, the 14-15 refresh tail lights are more reminiscent of the first generation Camaro. And the 2010-13 version's tail lights look more like the ones on the 1970 Camaro.

I don't mind the taIL lights on the 14 and 15. what I don't like is the narrowed head lights. Doesn't really originate from any generation.

It just goes to show how different people like different things.
I bought my Camaro in 2017 and I specifically looked for a 14-15 because I liked the look of the narrow front end more than the earlier models.
It just looks way more aggressive IMO. The rear end however I honestly like both a lot. To each their own.
