I'm not usually a convertible fan, but I gotta say, if it ends up looking like this I'm a fan.

That rear shot is awesome. I'm not a vert fan either. But, I'm thinking I would pick up one of these for sure. As long as they can make the top solid enough so that it doesn't turn into a big bubble over two years. That's a sweet looking car, guys.

Oh hell ya that's a stunner of a car. I can't wait to see this at NYIAS in April! I bet it'll have just as big of a crowd around it as the coupe did.

Any chance of a t-top or no word on that at all?

Nice scans - thanks for sharing them

I don't see T-Tops coming - that is old tech.

The Convertible 'chop looks great

It's a very safe bet...there won't be a version with t-tops.

I love the tops, but don't think they'll work w/ the coupe. I've never been a vert fan, but that is not bad looking at all. Think I'll still be going w/ the coupe...save the cash from going w/ the vert and get a lighter coupe w/ more options and bigger engine.

Can someone photoshop the back end view of the purple vert and make it black, please?

Ok...enough of that crap. I don't like verts. This is actually the first time I've ever given any thought about getting one. I probably won't do it but....Holy crap, that is nice!!!

Was that part in the article about 5.3L and 6.0L V-8s pure speculation or based on some insider info? I thought the 5.3L wasn't even being considered....

The V8 engines for the new Camaro are not in existence yet. That info. is just speculation.

It said the big dog in that article will be the SS near corvette power. But I like it in the vert. But I still would take the coupe. I wish they would make the t-top again I loved them.
