Really quite glad now that I didn't wait for the convertible and that I got an '11 coupe instead!

Don't get me wrong (as far as my convertible comment) some cars look good as a vert, for instance the corvette. The vettes have always looked good with drop tops, just the camaro is not one of those cars IMO.

I think people would appreciate a hard top vert a lot
I'm so-o-o-o-o glad Chevy didn't do a hardtop convertible. I wouldn't want the extra weight or the extra cost. Remember, the car is targetted at a certain segment of the car market and needs to be price competitive in that market for it to survive as a model line. I'm not sure why some people are so hung up about how any convertible looks with the roof up. This looks great for a car that has a roof made of cloth and folds up into your trunk. And it completely rocks with the roof down. No one buys a convertible for how it looks with the roof up. You buy it because the top drops! I understand its not everyone's thing, but I think Chevy did an awesome job! This car is 100% worth the wait for me.

Not a fan of the shark fin trunk. Other than that it's a pretty sweet car. Although I still prefer the hardtop with sunroof.

sorry!..i think the car just looks better with the "reverse mohawk!"..gotta say,
i've had 'verts before,and once the novelty wears off,it loses it 's appeal,..at least it did for me!..in my view,''nothin' really special!..it's like anything else!..once ya get used to it,..thrill's gone!....what DOES last,is the "performance",and great feelin' ya get ,drivin' the car!..THAT excitement is always with ya!....and NOT necessarily enhanced by a"drop-top!".."just sayin!"

Rally Stripes with the fin!?!? What about that third tail light tangled up in those stripes? Don't get me wrong. I am a Vert fan, but lets get rid of the junk on the trunk. Light into the spoiler and something to get rid of that fin.

I'm no engineer, but I see long term durability issues for that top. There is an awful lot of wind coming over that roof at 160+ mph...snicker. I was also surprised it didn't appear to be an RS/SS...no HID anyway. Did GM stiffen or bolster the frame to compensate for the body integrity loss in a ragtop?

Yes, the frame has had a lot of structural upgrades to compensate for the loss of the roof. That's why the Convertible weighs more than the coupe.

You can "cure" that look by crackin' the window a smidgeon...equalizes the pressure...

Here we go, entering the new generation of faded, ripped, and cracked convertible tops making the car look like crap (already does really). They could have just not made one, does every car have to have a convertible?? Is it a money thing? Is this what "the people" want? Should have made it a hard top. Sure the extra weight would have been added but your already sacraficing performance and adding weight with the rag top anyway. I really hope that shark fin isnt going on the trunk. Im waiting for the "well if you dont like it dont buy it"post.

Does anyone know if there is an option to get the window frame in metal instead of painted like on the orange concept? I think that looked so much better!

I think it's an awesome car. There certainly are tradeoffs when you buy a convertible, but this one retains the great appearance of a standard Camaro. I'm not a fan of the lights or the trunk shark, but it's better than what Ford did with the "turtle". Take a look at Mustang Convertibles and you will realize what a great job Chevy did on this one. I wonder what the weight is on the vert?

Hideous! That's the only description I can give it.
This car is just not made to be a convertible.
The workmanship looks cheap and problematic.
Those that want convertibles should look elsewhere.

Can somebody explain that to me: I am looking a the photos of the convertible's rear spoiler and it goes beyond the sides of he deck lid.
The RS rear spoiler on my 2010 CG does not.
Is this a new / different rear spoiler and will it fit he coupe?

It's a new spoiler. Not sure if it'll fit the coupe.

DANG IT ALL! I live in West chester (on Tylersville Rd.) And I SWEAR that looks dead on the Thorntons on Tylersville right by I-75 (right next to Lowes).... I wish I would have known it would have been there and I would have been there in a heartbeat. Thats less than a mile from my house.... how did I miss it! AHHH.

I love it. The shark fin is sexy, so I don't know why people don't like it. I hate coupes, so I was planning on trading in my bumblebee for a convertible when they came out (waiting to hear if there will be a convertible Z28 though). I only bought a coupe because vertes didn't exist, and I miss having one soooo bad (3000GT Spyder is what I had before).

Thanks for showing it off! I'll continue to wallow in depression of missing it so close to my home, and continue to be depressed as I'm stuck in a coupe driving around knowing there are some vertes on the road, but hopefully I can get rid of the camaro I have and get a beauty like that one soon!

I love how the side rear windows power down. I wish they did that in the coupe as well.
