I'm not usually a convertible fan, but I gotta say, if it ends up looking like this I'm a fan. :D

That rear shot is awesome. I'm not a vert fan either. But, I'm thinking I would pick up one of these for sure. As long as they can make the top solid enough so that it doesn't turn into a big bubble over two years. That's a sweet looking car, guys.

Oh hell ya that's a stunner of a car. I can't wait to see this at NYIAS in April! I bet it'll have just as big of a crowd around it as the coupe did.

Any chance of a t-top or no word on that at all?

Haven't heard anything bout the t tops....sux, cause I love'em.

OverAnxious 12-19-2006 01:12 PM

Nice scans - thanks for sharing them :D

I don't see T-Tops coming - that is old tech.

The Convertible 'chop looks great :cool:

It's a very safe bet...there won't be a version with t-tops. ;)

I love the tops, but don't think they'll work w/ the coupe. I've never been a vert fan, but that is not bad looking at all. Think I'll still be going w/ the coupe...save the cash from going w/ the vert and get a lighter coupe w/ more options and bigger engine.:thumbsup:

Can someone photoshop the back end view of the purple vert and make it black, please?

Ok...enough of that crap. I don't like verts. This is actually the first time I've ever given any thought about getting one. I probably won't do it but....Holy crap, that is nice!!!

Was that part in the article about 5.3L and 6.0L V-8s pure speculation or based on some insider info? I thought the 5.3L wasn't even being considered....

The V8 engines for the new Camaro are not in existence yet. That info. is just speculation. ;)

It said the big dog in that article will be the SS near corvette power. But I like it in the vert. But I still would take the coupe. I wish they would make the t-top again I loved them.

Camaro Convertible preview... exactly what you'd expect
Posted Dec 21st 2006 9:19AM by Alex Nunez
Filed under: Concept Cars, Detroit Auto Show, Convertibles, Chevrolet

Early next month, when GM opens up their stand at the Detroit Auto Show, expect to see a concept version of the new Camaro Convertible front and center. While the Camaro's debut at last year's show was a surprise, there are leaks aplenty surrounding the 'vert.

So, while it wont exactly be a shocker when it appears, it'll still have our tongues wagging. The Car Connection, who has the story, mentions that when the Coupe finally bows, we can expect to see 6- and 8-cylinder (obviously) versions. We've heard juicy rumors from inside sources about a potential horsepower figure beginning with "5" for the top-of-the-line Z28/SS/whatever-they'll-name-it. This would make complete sense since the Shelby GT500 dishes out as much, and the Camaro will need to be able to run with (or past) the pony to keep the base happy. :evil:
In the meantime, we're counting down the days to January 7, when we'll (hopefully) get to see the purported convertible in person.

:thumbsup:

This is EXACTLY the kind of news we need to hear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just pray to God that their "inside sources" are true inside sources and not people spreading :bs: rumors. I hope they're telling the truth. IMO, they hit the nail on the head when they compared to the GT500. If GM does want to keep up and be ahead of the competition, it's time for them to step up and not put out 345hp top of the line Camaros. It's time to take the lead. It's time to show everyone what GM can do. It's time to show them what GM WILL DO. Bring it GM. :clap:

boxmonkeyracing 12-22-2006 07:50 AM

all I got to say is why render it in purple? and I'm excited to hear the top of the line with a rumored 5somethin hp rating. I would still say a 480 would still out run the gt500. that thing weights as much as my neighbors f-150. lol.
