Possibly one day, or maybe the z28, or a conv. z28. But currently i am happy with my 2LT.

We are lucky GM is making cars like this. Should get interesting seeing these on the road. Normal Camaros already get tons of attention. now they have this car.
Ditto... not on the site as long, but been waiting just as long. Definitely looking forward to it.

I initially wanted one when they first announced the Camaro was coming back. But, like everyone else who wanted one so bad, when the coupe finally came out, I was impatient.

My original plan was to trade my coupe when the convertible came out, but now that I've had my car almost a year, I can't imagine parting with it.

But the vert does look great and I will probably be jealous when I see one on the road. LOL

I'm excited about it, but don't want one. Anything that helps sell the beast, I support.

Not crazy about the look with the top up. I was smart? lucky enough to grab a 1968 Camaro convertible with original drivetrain 10 years ago before the muscle car market really blew up, so I'll drive that one when I want the wind in my hair!

I love my car but it already has a lot of interior noise. I can't imagine the levels in a rag top. Hard top with no SF for me. Plus it looks less "Muscle Car" ish.

I think it's cool they are FINALLY coming out with it. But I have no interest in a convertible.
I hope they sell well for GM!!

Just test drove an '11 Corvette! Shouldn't have done that!

Its not for me,I love my coupe.. When the convert comes out you can bet there will be a lot of price gouging just like last year when the hard tops were in short supply,so here we go again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where i live the Sun is a killer and convertables look like crap after a couple of years. It's WAY to hot to have the top down and when it is (phoenix is summer like 9months a year) people laugh at you...
