Sunroof??

Please forgive me if this has been covered. I have searched and am unable to find it.
On the preproduction car it looks to me that it has a sunroof. It may be a reflection or shadow or something else. But to me it looks like a sunroof. Any comments??

We came to the conclusion that it is a sunroof, but that is only a preproduction model. Nothing is set in stone until GM tells us, and that includes whether the Camaro gets a sunroof.

Cool. I really don't care either way. Was just wondering. And maybe it could be a way that GM is letting us know of options that will be available?? I won't have a sunroof either way....ttops yes...if not the hard top will do

If anything, I'm betting Chevrolet will offer a sunroof on the Camaro. I highly doubt t-tops will be an option. I feel t-tops would take away from the looks.

Also, (I may be mistaken) but it seems to me, most new cars offer sunroofs, as opposed to t-tops. Maybe because it cost's less for them, and is more practical?

Who knows... I'll be going with a coupe, sans sunroof.

It would seem likely that they would offer it, since they engineered it into the prototype; it's not like it's only a headlamp or taillamp. I agree that T-tops would take away from the looks, and probably the structural integrity of the car. My car felt WAY better after adding subframe connectors to it, so I think T-tops are going bye-bye. I'd like a sunroof, if I can keep the coupe reverse mohawk, if I can't, I might pass as well.

The third gen's were not structrually sound with t-tops either, my 84 t/a with a 383 stroker twisted the car so bad my t-tops never fit in correctly again, but they made them. you never know.

It was shown on the prototype. The Challenger offers a sunroof. The Mustang will soon be offered with an all-glass roof. I think it is safe to say the Camaro will get some sort of glass panel on the roof as an option. I'll order a sunroof.

It appears to be pretty visible on the "spy shots"! If they do offer it, I would get it.

The glass roof is currently available. I saw one at the local Ford dealer a few weeks ago.

Has no one noticed the reverse mohawk is gone on the latest pics?

^Of the two released it's really hard to tell on the one without a sunroof because of the white clouds behind it, so it might still be there. I hope it is.

Structural rigidity is only half the reason T-Tops will never be made again. The main reason is curtain airbags and rollover protection. GM wants this car to attain 5 star safety ratings, and T-tops would give it 0 stars.

But they manage to do targa tops on the Corvette (essentially the same thing) and are rumored to offer that on the Solstice soon as well.

Hope you don't mind if I bump this thread, but has it been confirmed if the Camaro coupe will offer a power sunroof?

Yes. There is a picture of a white IVER with a sunroof somewhere on this forum.

Sorry, I'm too lazy to find it right now

Nice, I will try and find it myself. I thought originally they couldn't put the sunroof in because the way the roof is.

The solid roofs will have the lines of the inverted mohawk, while cars with a moonroof will have a flat roof contour.

Nice, now I might consider the coupe. Don't know if the convertible is worth the extra money. Need to see how I like it in person.

Yea I am still more for the convertible, the weather up here in the spring and fall is very nice. Nothing like cruising with a V8 Camaro with the top down. However some people here seem to think the Convertible won't be as stable as a coupe, might consider the coupe with sunroof if I don't like it.
