The big news for the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro is indeed the highly anticipated Z28, but that doesn't mean the base cars are moving forward without a few small tweaks. Our friends at landed a set of spy shots that depict the Chevrolet muscle car sporting a new and improved set of taillamps and mirrors.
Out back, the revised lamps use a full-LED design that mimic the shape of sunglasses. And if we're honest, we much prefer the standard bulb-lit units found on the current car, though we're sure that the LED setup will be a hit amongst the gee-whiz crowd. As for the side mirrors, they've grown quite substantially and now include turn indicators. At first glance they look a bit awkward, though this should help remedy one of the largest complaints we have about the Camaro: outward visibility.

We're still scratching our heads to decide if we'll put our stamp of approval on these design tweaks, though we'll have to wait until the finished product shows up before making any final judgments, as these could just be early prototype parts. Expect to see the slightly restyled Camaro debut sometime next year as a 2012 model. Hat tip to Luke!
