Smile Buy a 13, 14, or wait?

I bought a used 11 triple black LT2 RS vert this spring. Other than major curb rash on the wheels, the car is great. Drives great. Heads up display is super .. a must- have feature for me now. Very happy with car except I wish I had bought it new.

I've been thinking about a new Camaro vert for the future and need your input. I'd want the 6-cylinder RS with heads up option, leather. Should I look for a 13 now hoping for discounts, or consider a 14?

Or should I just wait for the next generation? When will that car be released, and any ideas on its look? I guess I could wait until then and if I don't like the next gen buy a vert from 14 or 15.

Your ideas are always appreciated.

Wait for a 17! Lol, j/k. Bottom line is if you keep waiting, you will be waiting forever. Just google pics. The 14 has the hood and tail light change. Its all what tastes good to you.

Good luck!

I myself am waiting for my job situation to settle down but before this crap hit the fan I was going to wait for the 2016 seeing not much improvement over the 10-13. I like the seats in the 14 but that's about the only thing that I do like. I myself am waiting for the 2016 unless GM screws that one up also.

If you are going to upgrade to an ss do it, either year best deals would be on a 13.. If your getting a new v6 keep what you have and spend on mods IMO....

I would get the 2013 and then wait till the 16 comes out. You may have better options then. On the other hand if you like the 14 look changes then get the 14 but only lease it, 16s may bring a lot to the table so if you don't like the 14 , you can always trade it in and not loose too much money.
good luck

You got the 11, theirs improvements made on the 13's.. tho 14's have many new parts that are different from the older models, tail-lights (re-designed) and so on..
IMO go w/what you want, in a couple more yrs, their may be a 6th gen "new body"
