Exclamation 2011 Camaro Convertible continues testing down under! (spyshots)

From homepage

This preproduction Camaro convertible was spotted in Australia just this week.
Even though the production of the cabrio has been delayed until 2010, it's great to see it still in testing.... reminds me that it's definitely coming, just a bit later than originally expected.

It's been a while since we've had a preproduction Camaro convertible sighting.
The last sighting was more than 6 months ago -- http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5600

Actually there is a small company in Queensland (In Australia) that imports Corvette's, converts them and charges just over AUS$200K per car.
Houston we have a problem.
All we can do is drool when we see the pictures that are posted.
Have fun with that awesome piece of machinery.

Looks like left hand drive is heading your way!! Monaro

Nice, but I think they need to do some more testing in a car wash

Not sure i like the third brake light on the trunk lid like that. I think it would be better integrated into the spoiler. Other than that i love it.

BTW, for everyone who ordered black, that is what your car is going to look like dirty. Yikes! Thanks for posting Tran. It is nice to see that testing is continuing on the convert.

I wouldn't worry about that too much, yet. There's still a good chance they integrate it. This is a cobbled-together exterior in order to allow for driving on the streets of Australia.


Thanks, Tran!!

That would make sense.... it does sort of look "thrown on" there.

Seeing black that dirty makes me wanna cry. :(

I thought the Vert was delayed indefinately. I haven't paid attention. This is REALLY good news to me. I can't buy my Camaro til early 2010 anyway. I wonder if it will be out in the "year" 2011 or maybe later 2010 as a 2011 model? I can wait til later in 2010 but there is NO WAY I will be able to hold off much longer than that. Vert or no vert. Soft tops have never looked good to me but THIS looks good. I'm torn.

Wow....the roof looks almost identical to the one my mustang has...

I wonder if it's operated in the same way.....(ie. electric motorized)?
Mine has a button that retracts the top....

heres what im talking about for reference....

The rear back tire looks like they are getting a little to close to the curbs......Looks like just one curb check and you have a ruined wheel on your hands.

I'm afraid I'll have to cancel my non-existent order for the coupe if it doesn't come with the "LEFT HAND DRIVE" sign!

It looks pretty. ^_^. I think it'd look even prettier in RJT.

Almost looks like writing on the rims to me.

I do like the convertible look on the 'Maro. If it were all clean, it might make some people cry.

Another reason why NO ONE drives my car but me. I'll let my son take it to Prom but with a security deposit.

My son gets to take mine to prom also, but he hasn't told me if he or his date is riding in the front passenger's seat while I drive them there.

I definitely won't let him drive it since he just wrecked my wifes car while his was getting some engine repair on his.

The trailer hitches are for pulling rolling dyno's and used for testing purposes. There is 1 pic though of it pulling a small UHAUL. It WILL NOT come with one just for clarification.

That is REALLY dirty, my dad has a black car and I don't think I've ever seen his that filthy, and he rarely washes it.

No. GM would not be that stupid. They tried that before and it blew up in their faces. The car has been designed to accept a right hand drive set-up. I knew there was a reason the Aussies put the gas filler door on the right side!

That's what the wife's car is for!

I like the top, I give it a thumbs up!

wow I must be a good driver lol... I got my license when I was 16 and have never been in a accident or gotten a ticket, I am 19 1/2 now.

And black is never clean, I have a black car... you wash it and 10 min later its full of dust.
