I personally LIKE the interior of my 2010, except for the big round temp controls under the radio! Otherwise I don't see much else to improve!

As much as I love the Camaro, the convertible is NOT better looking, its heavier, less fuel efficient, the only increase in noise is wind noise because nothing else changed, the On-Star antenna on the almost-not-even-worth-it trunk is ridiculous looking, the roof DOES look like an emaciated horse, and finally, the teeny-tiny rear window exacerbates one of the most commonly complained-about visibility issues on the Camaro. If you want wind in your hair, this is your car. If you want a better looking, better performing, more cost effective, and safer car, stick with coupes. Having said that, props to Chevy for not letting the stiffness issue makes its way on to the list.
I Don't understand your post, I thought it was common knowledge that the convertible version of any car will wiegh more, be a little slower and drink a little more gas and be more expensive. The whole point of a convertible is to be a fun sporty cruiser.

And with the elimination of the B-pillar, outward visibility is actually improved in my opionion. Head checks are clear and looking over your right shoulder you can actually see things out the dropping quarter glass where the fixed glass in the coupe only offers a small opening.

Purty car although I am partial to my coupe. I'm imagining all the different mods that can be done with the brace.

Can we stop the 10,000 I hate convertibles comment...we get it your not in that market, let those in the segment critique the car appropriately by comparing it to other convertibles

And yes the car had better visibility than the coupe and that's a good thing

I'd say almost completely irrelevant for 90+% of Camaro buyers, hardtop or not.
