Folding back seat in Convert?

Seems like a simple question - does anyone know if the new Convertible has a folding back seat? My 2000 Z28 Convert has one, and I find it very useful especially given the non-existence of any reasonable trunk in the new convert.

no - the seatback is fixed because there is cross-bracing there -- which is what gives the Camaro convertible a coupe-like ride.....

The trunk is much more useful than you'd think - I have a 28 inch pullman roller bag - a size large Swiss Army roller briefcase - and an American Tourister Suit carrier - and they all fit in the trunk (when the top is up...) with room to spare..........

What I suspected. Too bad - even without a trunk pass-thru, folding rear seats are useful for cargo capacity. I use the one in my 4th gen frequently, and have never used the trunk pass-thru.
