I will say no - and reason being is it would require a redesign and recertification of the coupe. Less parts more profit is the story today

T Tops look so cool. I love the way my camaro now has no wind noise. If T Tops mean wind noise then Ill do without. But if they can design them air tight. That would be cool.

Someone posted a picture a while back with a 5th Gen Camaro with t-tops and i was on the fence about it. Not really sure if i like it but def didn't like it enough to buy one.

Can't see t-tops or targa on the Camaro. Personally think it will stay sunroof.

I imagine the T Top recal demand thread would rival the vert top thread

O.k. i found the other thread. I think with T-tops off it will make it easier to get in and out of the car or to go thru a drive-thru, atm etc. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=250163

I had them in my 2000 Z28. I loved them, they never leaked. But there will not be t-tops again because of Government crash regulations. The convertible doesn't have curtain airbags because it is classified as such. A coupe has to have them,so no way to have T's.

I don't see it happening. The main point that has been brought up about not having them now is safety. That won't change on the next generation.

For about $20 grand you can have them installed safely.

I sure hope not... T-Tops were already an outdated 70's/80's idea when they had 'em in the 4th gen cars.

Not likely. With Camaro having to share a RWD platform with global sedans the architecture isn't there to support that type of design without a lot of extra cost.


If Camaro ever gets its own platform back like the F-body from 1967 to 2002 there would be more design and styling feedom. That doesn't seem likely in the modern automotive industry.
