I'd also love to have something similar to a Rally Green, or Fathom Green, yet all I'm offered is radioactive neon green... Not my cup of tea, but as mentioned previously, you can't please everybody.

...
Woops...I should have said Aqua Blue SS.

I already have my sweet ABM....so what I meant is if I didn't upgrade my car, or go with a 6th gen then I'd maybe try to seek out a good used ABM SS. But I'm sure you probably caught my little flub up there lol

A direct answer to the OP's title "why in a hurry" is;
Cause the 2014 sucks thats why! It is the reason why so many stood still looked at it, shook there head, and still say to themselves "meh". It is impressionless for a camaro standard and far from the benchmark set before it arrival. And noo plastic up the back half of it hasnt "grown" on alot of us, and nooo the tailight debacle hasnt "grown on us in time" blah blah blah. Get it right next time GM and make someones heart skip a beat for gods sake, not the "it will grow on your crap" spare us the propaganda.

It grew on me. I'd take a '14 over a '10-'13. Especially a 1LE.

I am interested in seeing how GM will develop the car now that it has an appropriate foundation for a performance car. Lighter, more rigid and more advanced will all help the 6th gen be a beast of a car.

So what you're saying is that a couple of warts is more than enough to overcome the goodness in everything that's right about the car? That you don't think you could ever get into the car and enjoy driving it without worrying about the parts you don't like.


If it matters any, your specific complaints are the same ones that people posted on the Mustang forums back when their 2010's came out. I didn't care for exactly the same things you mentioned not liking, but it wouldn't have stopped me from putting one on the short list if I'd have been in the market for a new car at the time. Really, they end up being somebody else's problem when I'm driving or parked in public, nobody's problem otherwise, and I could hardly care less either way. Same thing would apply to a 2014 1LE if I was shopping today.

The Gen 6 ...They are bringing back the 88 IROC.. They got bored so that's the best they could do.. Who cares about gas mileage in a muscle car.. maybe a YOTA would be a better car for that

Why the slanted nose???? Aren't these supposed to look like 60s muscle cars or is the new trend 80s.. remember what happened to the 88 IROC and the Trans AM?? or are they just trying to copy European auto makers...


Give us more power for the same cost..

Men dont buy Camaros to get better gas mileage... OH.. and get rid of the new ugly front lights on the newer 14. The future slopped look is not working..


No I wont part with my Gen 5.. They already screwed up a cool car...
Just my 2 cents

1. The government.

2. Anybody who'd rather drive theirs than let it sit there as an expensive driveway ornament while they drive some little penalty box on wheels instead. Or who would rather be able to go well over 300 highway miles on a tank than have to stop for a 15+ gallon fill every 175.

I want the new Alpha platform--the one used in the Caddy ATS and CTS--lighter, stronger, better handling. Also want the LT1 from C7 Corvette--more power every where in the rev range than the present LS3. The sooner they bring out a new Camaro the better, especially with the up grades to the new Mustang!

I want GM to take their time and make the 6th gen. right. Lets see what the Mustang has and what it can do so GM can make any changes needed to top the Mustang.

I think the 6th Gen will be pretty radical in order to compete with the new 2015 Stang.

Here is a photo between current model and the new Stang:
