Exclamation 2011 Camaro Convertible officially confirmed for 2nd Quarter 2011

As reported on homepage.

Although we didn't get to see a production Camaro convertible at this morning's GM live webcast as we had hoped, GM has in the follow-up session officially confirmed that the production of the 2011 Camaro convertible will begin in the second quarter of 2011! This is slightly later than the previously estimated Q1 production date, but we'll take it!

This confirmation and announcement by GM comes to us via the special GM press conference/event held this morning in Detroit, the first part of which was a live webcast which focused mostly on the upcoming Chevrolet Volt.

I may be wrong but is that roughly 2 years from now? Then a similar wait time or delay that you had for the coup, were looking at 2 to 2 1/2 years and their is nothing that says that they won't delay it more. I for one am glad i dint wait. I'll guess I'll get the vert when the car is redesigned 5 or so years from now. At the very least we should have some spy photos of he redesigned vert before they stop making this version and will be able to choose what we like more.

so much for the $16,000 modification work that would turn a hard top in to a convertable.

This is just an assumption, but I don't think there will be many changes to the current camaro between here and then.

There's the GM we all know and love. Got a hot product on your hands? Delay, delay, and when you think you've delay it enough, delay it a couple more times, just to make sure.

Hard to believe it will take another 2 years almost! Any chance there was a typo and production begins Q2 2010?? It seems very late in the model year run...Q2 2011 to start building cars for 2011 model year?
