Do you think the C7 Tailights Look like the Camaro Tail Lights ??
So? What do you think?
Gone but not forgotten
I don't think so. I didn't like the Camaro tail lights the first time I saw a new one. . . not to criticize those who do, they just weren't my cup of tea. But I like the rear fascia on the new C7. . . to me the different components come together to create an edgy, aggressive look worthy of the name Corvette.
I can't wait to see one up close and personal!

There's a family resemblance but they are definitely not the same.

They had better look very similar, or GM styling and marketing didn't do their job correctly.
The runny mascara around the tail lights doesn't help them any. Hopefully they help sales.

Good point. It's like the car has two faces; front and rear. Both faces have a mean look.

It's impossible to do, but if there were any way to look at them objectively (meaning take the Camaro issue out of it) I wonder, if based strictly on their own merit, most would like them or not?
For instance, what if these had come out first on the Corvette, then Camaro had its tailights rolled out a couple years later? We'd all view it as Chevy keeping the Camaro as a Corvette-wannabe type of car. Oh look, Chevy made a Camaro with baby Corvette tailights!
That's the problem... these Corvette tailights have come out *after* the Camaro's. (there's the DUH statement of the decade!) In a perfect world, it would have (should have) been the other way around. In the past, I haven't noticed all Chevy cars having similar tailights, so why couldn't they come up with something new for the new Corvette?
Now, after all that long-windy-ness, I have to say that when taken as a whole, the rear design is growing on me, already. That didn't take long!

Wow… did my posting of the comparison of rear ends spawn this poll?
I don't think it matters much, as beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
If you like the Vette no matter what, it won't stop you from buying one.
If the butt end is too Carmaro to be a Vette; then buy a C6.
Didn't the old Camaros also have a coke-body style and similar instrument dash?
Popup lamps too, just done differently.
Kinda like the chicken or the egg…
Just in this case, we can tell which came first with the butt design.
Similar designs to please different pocket book target markets. Both classic.
Just whatever you do… BUY A VETTE

Chevrolet has always had "family" design cues, like the bar across the grill opening. I like the design. I stated in another thread that folks probably hated the first coupe in 1963, and then, gasp, factory air conditioning later in 63... Just ruined the car...

I think there is a similar style to the tailights. They arent exactly the same I would have preferred the typical round tailights but with the new edgy styling of the corvette I dont think it would have fit as well. Change can be hard to accept but I think Chevy pulled it off great
on that thought…

Truth be told, I brought it out with me when I moved from the East to the West coast decades ago. No SMOG on it either. Fortunately it just slips under the 1975 or newer must have SMOG law here.

Nope. Not your post. Just a lot of the feedback I've read here and elsewhere on the web. I wanted to build an image of both rear ends so that you could see the similarities or disimilarities. In my opinion when you see both cars in person, there is no resembance.

I think GM did a great job at creating the new model.Front and rear.Even the interior in my eyes looks awsome from all the pics that Rob has posted. Are the tail lights similar, all I can say is that they're not round, but I'll get used to them.And If they can do all that and keep it close to the $50K target, I'm definitely interested. Great job Chevrolet!!
My only problem is the Wife told me one has to go before I can even think about a C7.
