Z Vert?

So now that the Convertible is on it's way and cars will be built soon the focus will shift to the Z28. That said do you think they will eventually offer a Convertible Z28 or will they just do a coupe?

I'm 1, 2, and 4, but I definately think they should offer one. I'm loving the drophead the more I see it!!! I don't get one, but I think the market is there

Never been a fan of high horse convertibles but yep - it'll most likely happen and at the same time.

I think it's very possible. The shelby comes in a vert and I don't think the Mustangs platform is as stiff as the Camaro's. I would love to see it happen. Of course I'd like to see the coupe hit the dealer lots first!

It's all semantics. We could debate the pony car/ muscle car designation but generally age determines which you think it is. The first gen had a drop top along with the mustang and others so I don't think it's a factor. Just an option. This (picture) is undeniably a muscle car.

Apparently, Callaway is doing a convertible model at 572 HP based on the SS. Seems reasonable that GM could do a Z28 too. Who knows what they will really do though? Certainly not me!

Lemme see the coupe, then we'll talk.
I can't imagine they won't offer a convertible version.

Not at all. Convertible Muscle Cars/Grand Tourers are no more "sports cars" than an old GTO convertible is. At least in my opinion.

A "sports car" is small, seats two and stresses handling more than brute force...muscle cars/Grand Tourers put more effort into making big power and respectable handling while offering comfort and practicality to drivers.

A drop-top doesn't change that formula...it just lets the wind through your hair.
