The coupes cabin is a little too dark & cramped to truly appreciate a drive through the mountains or wherever. As much as I would hate to sacrifice rigidity and deal w the issues that come with soft-tops, I would still seriously have to consider trading up in 2011. Of course if the engine was switched to a DI V8 the decision would be that much easier. So what odds would you guys put on this happening?
Some will think there's a chance, but I won't expect it until the 2013 model year

Same way they do it with cars equipped with a sunroof.

At first I thought the ragtop looks cheap, but now I'm thinking it doesn't look too bad. Plus, the Camaro is supposed to be my fun car so a ragtop would be the ultimate in fun.

However, the higher priority for me would be looks, and I think the coupe roof looks sexy and sexiness is compromised with a cloth top whose colour doesn't match the body.

Furthermore, a sunroof allows you to see the sky when there's bad weather and that's better than having a ragtop.

Going to be 13-16 months away. Decide for yourself if that is soon or not
