2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Begins Regular Production at Oshawa Assembly Plant
 
Per GM:

Oshawa, Ontario– Rick Hendrick and Dale Earnhardt Jr. today visited Oshawa Assembly Plant to mark the start of regular production for the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible, which will arrive at U.S. dealerships beginning in February.

Hendrick, a Camaro enthusiast who purchased the first 2010 Camaro coupe offered for sale, has now also purchased the first Camaro Convertible available to the public. In both cases, Rick Hendrick acquired the purchase rights through Barrett-Jackson auctions, with all proceeds benefitting charitable causes.

“I grew up loving the Chevrolet brand, and I’ve never raced anything else,” Hendrick said. “As a Chevy enthusiast, it’s been exciting to see the Camaro return as such a world-class, high-performance car. The folks in Oshawa make some of the best products on the road, so the opportunity to meet them and thank them for what they do is a real privilege.”

Dale Earnhardt Jr., a driver for Hendrick Motorsports in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, was also present at the celebration and added, “Chevrolet has been a great partner on and off the track, and I’m very happy to be here on this special day. While I still enjoy my 1972 Camaro, I can’t wait to take home one of these awesome new convertibles.”

The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible starts at $30,000, including destination, equipped with a 3.6L V-6 delivering 312 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque. The Camaro Convertible SS starts at $37,500, including destination, equipped with a 6.2L V-8 delivering 426 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque.

thats really cool
I wonder what colour the first vert will be?

Drago77 01-31-2011 01:25 PM

Interesting to read this, being that my original TPW was 1/11, and although my order got pushed back nearly a month, others have recently received their VIN #s and their convertibles seem to be shipping.... hmmm... oh well, hopefully it'll get moving now! Wonder if those above mentioned will be of any collector value, since they were built before production?

Yeah, what gives? I also thought they have already been building then for a couple weeks?

Chevyg1rl 01-31-2011 03:30 PM

Can't wait! I'm trying to talk my boy into getting one :D

OVERPAR73 01-31-2011 03:52 PM

I've decided to wait for the Z-28 convertible, hopefully a 585 version or even a higher HP number!!

I was going to wait for the convertible Z28 also, by it was hard enough getting my self to pay $46k for a car and I bet the Z28 drop top will probably be about $60k. In the year it takes for it to come out my car will be making tons more power.

Amen to that!!!

That's my plan exactly (regardless of whether it is called Z28 or not).

I'm a big fan of Dale Jr., but he looks like he hasn't slept in about a month! Or maybe he just doesn't want to be there? Anyways, those vers look sweet! :thumbsup:
