Thumbs up 2011 Camaro Convertible First Production Pics. To Debut at LA. Starting at $30k.

GM PRESS RELEASE:

Quote:
DETROIT – The 21st century rebirth of the Chevrolet Camaro opens a new chapter when the 2011 Camaro Convertible premieres at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on Nov. 17.

The Camaro Convertible will arrive in Chevrolet showrooms in February 2011. Starting price will be $30,000, including $850 destination. (Full details will be released later this year.)

“The Convertible will make the all-new Camaro, already a smash-hit, even more desirable to a greater range of drivers,” says Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing.

The Convertible model will be available in the same basic model offering as the Camaro Coupe. The standard model will have a 312-hp Direct Injection V6 engine featuring 29 miles per gallon on the highway. The SS model will feature the 6.2-liter V8 engine producing 426 hp. A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with an optional six-speed automatic.

Camaro is America’s most popular sports car, seizing leadership in U.S. sales with the coupe model that launched in spring of 2009 as a 2010 model. The right to purchase one of the first Convertibles was recently sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction for $205,000, with all proceeds donated to charity.
Today, Chevrolet announced the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro convertible will start at $30,000 and be available for purchasing in February 2011. The $30,000 price includes an $850 destination charge.

This means the all-new Camaro convertible will cost $2,000 more than the current convertible Ford Mustang, which makes sense since it looks a million time better, and the Ford Mustang convertible is a pretty good design!!!

I spoke with a GM marketing representative a few days ago that confirmed the car will make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto show on November 17.

I am so happy to see the design team got a tonneau cover over the top. This gives the car a much more polished look!!! (The Ford Mustang convertible which is missing a tonneau cover looks ridiculous, and unfinished.) The tonneau cover on the all-new Camaro gives it really finished, streamlined, clean, high-end look.

I am not crazy about the fin, You would think they could have found a better way to hide it.

Also notice the rear headrests elevate up in a way we have not seen in any spy photos.

If this is not the best looking car ever made, I don't know what is!!!!!!!

The return of the American Muscle Car is now complete!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really Cool!!!!!

Jake

P.S. Obviously the official photo below is of the SS V-8 version of the car which should retail for around $40,000.

Why isn't this on the Homepage?

Soooo, we can deduce from the pic that there will be a different spoiler in 2012 or on the later 2011s?

Based on the V6 teaser picture, it looks like they removed the keyhole on the trunk lid

Well since I have decided on getting a V6 after seeing this I am back on that 'vert kick.
Who cares how it looks with the top up! I wont have it up much.

nice. But they should switch the XM fin & 3rd Brake light around. Looks tacky as is.

Don't really like it, but then again I rarely like convertibles.

I wonder how much of a weight difference there will be without a hard top.
