I actually don't even like the look of the convertible at all... Or 99% of the convertibles I've ever seen (any car)... so maybe that's why?

The colors look horrible. I'm just not a fan of the 5th Generation convertibles. They take so much away from the look of the car in my opinion.

Um... The color combo isn't the best, But that roofline has improved quite a bit, IMO. I can't wait to see better pictures, and pictures of them with the top down.

I vote for immediate cease of production with the color combo of brownish tan top and silver body. It is hideous. Simple black will suffice.

Very nice! I love it! Except their choice of tan for a roof colour. ugh. Silver or Black as soft tops, nothing else.

They should do a hardtop convertible... It was successful for the Pontiac G6, why not the Camaro? Sure it adds weight, but every convertible adds weight, and to have the style of a hardtop and the flexibility of a convertible, I think almost anyone could give up a little weight on an already near 2-ton car.

I am not a fan of these at all. I think the car looks amazing as a Coupe...not as a convertible. Same with the Mustang. It just takes away from it, IMO
