Thumbs down



That says it all. Atrocious color combination, and the shape of the top just ruins the body lines. GM did such a GORGEOUS job with the coupe - it's the lines and the look that we all love so much. The soft top IMO just can't compare...

I have a red 94 Z28 M6 vert that I bought new. It's now a 383 forged stroker with all the goodies.

Anybody who has run through the gears on a winding back road with the top down on a nice day will tell you...........convertibles rule when they're in their element. With the top down, on a nice day, I feel sorry for all the peeps trapped in their coupes.

There is no substitute for looking up at the clouds or stars with the wind in your hair and the sound of a 450HP V8 in your ears. At least for me.

I agree it would look better.

I'm not sure, but it looks to me like the last one in line thought to have a black top MAY be an optical illusion? To me it kind of looks like the top may be down and there is a black/dark colored car behind it making it look like the car has a black top. Maybe I'm just imagining it, the fence kind of obscures things.

I think Camaro needs a "true hardtop". Sans the B pillar. This would be true to the 1st gen. Camaro and greatly improve the cars looks. It shouldn't be that hard to do and it would greatly improve visability.

Yeah the tan and silver isn't doing it for me either. Maybe they were color blind.

Nice who really cares about the color combo like they said before it's a test mule maybe the tan was the only color available and they needed to get these on the streets.

I myself cannot wait to order my vert I might get both a coupe and vert at the same time

Good eye, the top does appear to be down.

^ Yea, I never would have noticed that myself...

As already stated, these are test cars and most of the time, the factory won't even let you order that combo. Silver cars are traditionally limited to black or gray tops.

I say GM should allow ordering to begin next week. I think having the convertible would be a good thing since a lot of the Vette buyers are holding off because they like having a removable top.

Exactly what I was thinking... the color of the material is totally irelevant to the need to test the mechanics and wear and tear issue. In fact, the Tan is probably the required color (over black or blue) because the Tan will best show any rubbing/tearing/stretching issues when the top goes up and down a few thousand times (hopefully) before they know they got it right...

The engineering it takes to put a top up and down is nothing new, but being the owner of a BMW convertible, I can certainly appreciate the amount of trial and error needed to make sure fitment is properly addressed with this being a brand new car and the fact that they want these tops to last and remain water/wind tight for years of use and for a performance car, all the more important. All that said, I wanted a convertible, but the missus vetoed it because our 2000 323i is suddenly leaking and she simply isn't a fan of bright sun and wind blown hair... I drive the beemer any chance I get with the top down...

the only way i would get the convertible is if it were a hardtop... i'm super bummed that it won't be.

Hmm, i'm just not a fan of the convertible on a nice car like this, to me it ruins the design and is ugly. But I could see why some would like it.
