No, THIS is a disgrace to the Camaro.



Agreed tho, lets see some real life examples of the 5th convert. Getting closer!

Lets hope it dont look like a cone head when its going down the road with the top up like the 4th gen. I wonder how much slower the vert will be because of weight...

Look at the drive axles, though... axleS... That thing is AWD or 4WD. It looks like "meh", but for the drivetrain mod... gotta give some , right?

It's not easy to convert 2WD to AWD...

I wonder which truck chassis that is?

I'm actually kinda glad I got a coupe. I was trying to hold out for a convertible, and it looks gorgeous with the top down, but with the top up, it looks almost 'unfinished'... :(

I'm sure we'll se a lot of them around tho!

Hardtops usually end up looking even worse....3 series BMW and even worse the new Lexus. Then add the extra weight, less trunk room with top down, etc. soft top is the way to go.

I love it with the top down and think it looks fine with the top up.

The only good looking hardtop converts I can think of are the S2000 and the Z3....

We had a Pontiac G6 hardtop before the Camaro and it looked pretty good with the
top up and the top down. Just not a fan of ragtops personally.

We had one too. Fun car, but I didn't think it looked great with the top up...

Looks are soo subjective, but having one you know what happened to the trunk space when you put that top down....Useless. More useless than even my Solstice.

I do not like the cut lines that are on hard top convertibles which takes a lot away from the looks of the car with the top up. All those metal pieces have to go somewhere and it going to eat up all the trunk space to do it. And this is JMHO but it looks way worse than the coupe, not even close.

The camaro 'vert with the top up looks 100 times better than any hardtop convertible car that i've ever seen to date.

Sorry guys, I'm not loving it. Really glad I didn't wait for this to come out. The shark fin and third brake light are hideous.

It does look decent with the top down though.

Well, our windows had 20% tint and it was black, so it helped... I thought
it looked decent enough... more like the coupe version than other
convertibles I've seen... which I think was one of their goals.

The car definitely looked better from the rear and worsened as you came
around it... okay from the side, the front looked like every 4-banger
Enterprise rental car sedan version of the G6, bless it's heart.

Also, even with the top down there was enough room for a quick trip of
groceries in the space under the pull cover. Not terrible all things considered.

Not my style, I love my hard top. Now, if it was a hard retractable top, like BMW or Mercedes Benz, then I would have thought about it.
