The 2014 Camaro ZL1 Convertible rear end.

TorqueNews Exclusive: 2014 Camaro ZL1 Convertible caught in the wild (Images)

Thanks to the wonders of cell phones, we have a few images of a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible test mule sitting in a parking lot fully exposed – giving us our first good look at the new super-Camaro droptop.

As you can see in the images here, this 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible wears the optional silver ZL1 wheels that were offered for the 2013 model year (although the standard black wheels look so awesome that I don’t know why anyone would opt for the silver rollers) along with the same hood and rear spoiler that were used on the current models. Where this model differs from the 2013 ZL1 Convertible is the new rear end design featuring the revised taillights and a lower diffuser area in contrasting black that extends much further up the body than the dark portion of the 2013 models. In addition to being larger, the rear diffuser portion has more of a “splitter” design than the outgoing models.

The most intriguing bit of information about the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible shown here is that – like the ZL1 test mule coupes running around the Detroit area – the new droptop muscle car does not feature the new front end that will debut for the 2014 model year. When GM introduced the new exterior design for the 2014 Camaro, it centered around the revised rear end and a new front end that features a slimmer, more aggressive looking grille. As you can see in these images, the revised rear end that was introduced on the 2014 Camaro SS and new Camaro Z28 is present on this 2014 ZL1 Convertible test vehicle but the front end is identical to that seen on the current (2013) model year Camaro ZL1 Convertible.
