this looks far and beyond better than I thought it would. I'm actually at a loss of words, and can't believe GM pulled this rear end off.. suggesting this is real. I will have my deposit down on Monday if this is what GM shows, and I will actually be leaning towards Silver... Best looking rear end on a vet ever.. or maybe any car

You could even paint a flat black from those reflectors down, that would be cool.

The only thing I don't like about it is that I don't own it.

I'm really digging on the depth to the tail light. It's not just a red 'U' shape backlit by LED's, but it's a sculpted dimensional piece adding interesting detail to the rear end. The integration of the vents is also well done; much better than the renderings could demonstrate.

I'm sold.

Kinda makes me think of what a 2nd generation Delorean would have looked like.
