Looking good except it appears to be a V6 version w/ the SS front bumper cover. The exhaust is from the V6 (smaller exhaust tips), 19" wheels, V6 brake package (remember even the V8 test mules had the Brembo brakes), no rear badge.

Like everyone else the shark fin must go plus no backup sensors on the rear.

I don't like the 3rd brake light so high on the trunk. Think they could incorperate it on the spoiler. And the shark fin antena looks out of place. Just mho. Overall it does look good, just needs a few fixes.

I fully expect them to make it disappear like in the vette.

Don't forget that it's a test car. That probably isn't going to make production.

They bitch about it being a porker now. Imagine with a hard top vert! Hard would be nice but I like the way it is turning out. I just hope that antenna gets pulled from the final design. I would imagine it's due to testing the top and integrating it into the rear glass later. It just looks strange because I'm used to the clean look of the car. I think the soft top looks about as good as they can do once it's cleaned up it will sell like crazy. Nice job Chevy!

It looks ok would have been much better as a hard-top convertable. The sharkfin needs to go and the tailight would look better as part of the spoiler not where it is right now. Other than that it looks ok.

My friend has a used Caddy XLR. It was hidden on the windshield in front of the rear view mirror. I'm sure thats where it will end up on the Camaro.

i agree on the third brake light...

i was planning on keeping my convertible stock, but not with that brake light on the trunk. they should definitely move it to the spoiler like the jay leno edition...

It won't be in the rear window, you would lose radio reception or it would greatly degrade with the top down...
The sharkfin will probably stay, this is not a Corvette, My Sky cost about the same as a camaro coupe and it's antennas were in the same place on this Convertible Camaro.

Yeah, It's a pre-production but, the photos are out there so...
first impressions are first impressions. No exceptions.

Aside from the minor thrown aesthetics like brakes, exhaust and whatever,
Side profile, looks bad. The whole back end looks weak where as the coupe keeps it's muscular lines. The soft top def. looks like a tent. I know that for the sake of pricing the sacrifices must be made... otherwise an electric hard top would it been my choice.

The antenna, I assume that they will somehow incorporate it into the rear glass like the coupe but, look how small of a glass you get.

...and, the shark fin. Unless they come with another way to transmit On Star, It will remain like it is. Unless they make it round like a hockey puck.

Just observations.

Honestly, I absolutely hate the look of it with the top up. One of the things that made the new Camaro looks so cool was its slick top. This is dreadful, but looks like the pictures I saw a while back, which is why I went with the hardtop. It should be cool with the top down, but honestly, that is maybe 5-10% of the time I'd be driving it. So, 90-95% of the time, it would look like that....no thanks! Disappointing.

Not feeling it. Prefer hard top convert. Back looks messy. Lost the muscular look.
