If they did a hardtop vert I would be willing, but I'm happy with the coupe.

When the ragtop is closed the car just doesn't look right to me.

Granted, when top top is popped, it's sex on wheels.

This is one of the few cars that I like with the top down. CAMARO doesn't lose any of the character, IMO

This reviewer seems to think there is no on-screen Navigation available. I hope that's not right, because My order form shows a $795 "audio w/Nav" option.

No worries, I have the on-screen navigation on mine and it works great.

Exactly. At 4:00 into the video, he asks why there isn't a heated steering wheel.

As soon as he said that he confirmed what I already thought when he started his review.

He calls himself a car expert but probably is extremely far from qualifying as one.

Can't hear the stereo system while driving on the highway with the top down?
Have to rely on a reinforced A-pillar because there is no rollbar included?
On-Star turn-by-turn no good - need the map view that comes with the NAV option?
No heated steering wheel on a $66,000 car?

Geez, why do people even buy a ZL1 Camaro?

You also forgot no PTMs, and a limited top speed (155mph) for the Verts.

convertibles dont, and never will do it for me. For some reason, i associate verts with being femine. idk, no offense to those who do like it, but IMO im always going to be a coupe guy

Coupe can be tracked
Convertible cannot be tracked

Coupe > Convertible

Agree with all points except the first one....unless it didn't add weight. I hard top would add ANOTHER 200lbs most likely!!!!

I like them both. But if I were going to spring for one, which seems very likely now, I'm going with the 'vert. I'm not a road racer. So tracking doesn't mean squat to me.
