Not a Vert guy, but do like the Spoiler and STB. Wonder will that spoiler attach to my 2011 SS? And a Carbon Fiber STB would look sweet!

Well im glad to see GM invited Dr. House to drive the car onto the podium xD that being said, anyone else notice the perma-grin on that guy? LOL A well placed perma-grin though.
I agree with the majority of the comments, its an extremely sexy car with the top down, the rear end looks amazing (isnt that always the difference maker? xD), its just with the top up that kills convertibles for me, so i stick to coupes, plus verts are a little too "prissy" for my raw tastes. And yes, that is quite a BEAST of a strut bar haha, wow...
Oh the spoiler is neat too, i like how they gave the vert its own unique spoiler design, but what i dont get is that retarted shark fin. Now i heard that on non-RS models all of the antenna functions are contained in the pod-thing, but with the RS package that pod is replaced by the shark fin which holds only the satellite radio functions and all other antenna functions are hidden withen the spoiler, well maybe its just my ignorent oppinion here but if you're gonna hide some functions in the spoiler whyyy not just put it ALL in the spoiler and do away with the shark fin altogether?? I mean whats the point in going through all the trouble to hide everything in the spoiler, with the intention of getting rid of the pod/fin, when you know its a necessity to keep it there anyways because of the XM radio stuff? =/

Not a rag top guy, but if I see one I like, I will give credit.
It hurts me to say, I'm not impressed, there's nothing that stands out.

I am a vert guy, owned a few. This one looks great to me. I'm thinking white with orange interior, orange painted on stripes. Like the 69 Pacecar look. I also have a 69 convertible too.

The Coupes Frame is in one piece and the Vert is in 3 pieces.

The all new Convertible !, Welcome to the Fleet !
Sort of - the coupe was designed with the idea that it would eventually become a 'vert so some of the coupes structure is for the 'vert. Having said that, they did add some extra structural stiffness on the 'vert by adding support to the underside as well as the strut tower brace. If we were underneath a 'vert, I could show you what has been added.

GM spent more effort on structural rigidity than any other camaro convertible in the past. The idea was to ensure that the convertible buyer experience the same level of handling that the coupe buyer experiences. Unfortunately, that usually means that the car will end up weighing more than the coupe. As a result, the 2SS auto convertible will weigh over 4,000 lbs.

Yea seen the frame for the coupe's just thought the verts would be a bit more reinforced ?, other than the two supports (aluminum or composite/light weight metals ?) .

That would be a nice addition to the regular coupes. But it looks like the strut towers are a different shape on the convertible. Might have to do some modifications to get it to fit

Same here. Only if they made these with a hardtop option.

I think most if not all of the coupes have this issue. Its so annoying i always freak out thinking someone opened there door on me and put a ding in that area but its just they way the car was made.

I definately prefer my coupe with the sunroof, but I am glad to see Camaro now has a convertable to offer to those you prefer the vert. Rear spoiler looks good though. Wonder if they will have a different rear rally stripe to go over the rear spoiler? That would be cool.
