Pfffft.

I love the C7...plain and simple. I'd own one in a heartbeat.

That said, the rear end doesn't settle well with me either. In my perfect world, those tail lights (without the tear drop) would have ended up on the 2014 Camaro refresh or even better, the 6th gen Camaro. They look like a perfect modern aggressive evolution of the tail lights on the Camaro. They even have a bit of that afterburner affect that the Camaro concept had. I guess what I'm trying to say is I love the tail lights on the C7....but not on that car.

The C7 would have ended up with oval (not round) lights again, but of course not the simple ones the C6 has. I'm talking a dual layered LED lens like the C7 currently has. In the night they would have had an oval glow with a dark center that lit up when the brakes were hit.

Man if only that had happened everyone would love both rear ends instead of the complaints we've been seeing. Not that I don't think the new rears for both cars won't grow on people...they always do. I just don't feel it is as good as it could have been. My .02.

I'll leave you guys with this....basically some photoshopped C7 tail lights slightly altered on the back of my car

As someone already stated, not everyone is going to be happy but that's just life. For the rest of us, we are in good hands. C7, Impala, Emergency Redesign of the Malibu (great improvement), ATS, CTS, Silverado/Sierra and the new Tahoe...

Nice Job GM!

All these complaints about the rear end of the C7 will go away when people see the car with their own eyes. I've seen one , the car is a masterpiece .

I think that the majority of the complaints about the C7 and 14 Camaro rear end is how HUGE GM has made the black plastic diffusers. The C7 still is not too bad but the 14 Camaro
is awful.

While delving into the realities of car style design in my thread on my ideas of what the 2016 Camaro should look like, I discovered the 2 rules of car design:

#1. You can't please everybody.
#2. When you think you have a really good design, see rule #1.

The back of the C7 is definitely unique; the tail light treatment/area is the back's greatest weakness but not bad by any means. The back is a slight bit too cartoonish/Japanese anime looking for my tastes but I wouldn't mind having a C7 in my driveway if someone wanted to give me one.

For the 2016 Camaro I hope they don't go too far with the trendy/anime look. In my design thread though, ALLTRBO came up with a really nice variation; you should check it out if you haven't already done so:

Not worried about it at all, after all our cars will gain value, or am I wrong?

The design is optimized for aerodynamics,with GT class rules at Leman becoming stricter the changes allowed to the body will be minimal.

The design is function over form in this case and besides it(C7) looks great from any angle.

I think the new Camaro will be great,the General hasn't let us down yet.

I'm loving the C7. The reaction from most of us was predictable. We would love to own a C7.

Every other color, I think the rear fascia is gorgeous.

....that ride looks like it's too hot to handle, it's a visual expression of high peformance standing still. In other words, it's doing 170 MPH parked.

What do you think your rear bumper is made of?

To be honest I barely notice the black plastic on '14s in person.

A problem with the first picture in this thread, and many pictures, is that they aren't 3D.
When I first saw the tear drop, I didn't know it wasn't a flat surface, and I thought it looked brutal.
