This convertible is amazing...i'm struggling between convertible or top-line coupe...it will be summer only driver. Either way..
Why they don't use the AM/FM antenna from the Corvette Convertible? Its hidden into the body. Maybe a power antenna can be swapped for this antenna? Otherwise the Convertible is beautiful.

No idea but given that this is still pre-pro, i'm not getting my undies in a bunch. I have faith GM will not let an eyesore like that detract from the lines of either the coupe or convertible. It just might be a detail that hasn't been worked out yet.

Hey i love the 5th gen but i just dont dig verts. Some of my dream cars in the vert model, bel airs, chevells and camaros just dont do the car justice. Sorry but to me it almost looks like the vert Mustangs i see driving around every day.

Convertibles just seem like the stereotypical tourist mobile...and the jeep. Maybe thats because i live in Hawaii haha.

Yikes! That thing looks sweet!!!!!

Anyone know if they're planning on putting the Top Dog V-8 in the 'vert?

That would be quite the masterpiece.

So I saw this thread, and thinking that it was that one of the really old concept pics posted a while back, sighed and clicked to the end to see why someone would resurrect this thread. Then I noticed the "today" posts went back quite a ways...so I clicked to the front AND HOLY FREAKING COW!!!!!!!!!

I was wondering when we'd see a vert mule and they come out with a nearly finished one. The headlights are even better than I hoped they would be. I actually like the enlarged lower grill, and of course I love the main grill, and this is the first ragtop I ever thought looked good with the top up. I was almost certainly going to get the coupe, but now I'm going to have to carefully consider my options...

My only gripe is the antenna. Hopefully that is just a pre-pro placeholder that will go. Shark fins are fine, but masts belong on old sailing ships. I suppose I could just remove mine, as I pretty much only listen to XM now.

Well done GM. Well done.

I've been set on the vert since day 1. All my Camaros have been ragtops....but at the risk of being a doomsayer that we hate so much around here, I have a serious concern that this is not a tonneau-style when the top is down. It's real hard to see and we have to save judgement for the high-res versions but it sure looks like I can see the bundled top behind the seat there.

So I'm crossing my fingers that we still get a tonneau over the top when it's down.

Also, several people are asking questions that just can't be answered, which is why noone is answering you. Just letting you know not to get offended and you aren't being ignored, it's just that there's no way of knowing some things from two tiny pics of a pre-pro.

I know a lot of you are digging the grill but IMO that will be the second thing to go for me. Tint the windows and replace both grills, upper and lower. I think there is lots of room for improvement there.

It doesn't look bad....just not my style.

Thumbs up

I'm not a 'vert person either, but I do like that car!! I am so glad to see a spoiler. Mine will definitely have one! I dont mind the antenna. A V6 'vert will be an option.

I hope thats true. When GM showed the pre-production Saturn Sky and Pontiac Solstice they had no visible AM/FM antenna, but as everyone knows it does have it. I just don't like mast antenna's, IMO they detract from the looks. Plus they are an eye sore. It wouldn't stop me from buying but I would take it to an audio shop and have them put a power antenna in its place.

Before I reply ot other posts, let me jsut say
WOW

I prefer this front end over what we've been seeing with the coupe. Everything about it, probably because its more 'final' and less 'thrown together'

Its missing one like all the other shots we've seen. There is a space for a badge (SS, bowtie, Z28, etc).

We've heard nothing more than wishful thinking for a hardtop vert. Sorry.

We don't know what the SS version will be so . . . no. The people at GM know though, too bad they never let us in on that stuff. Feel free to speculate, the time is running out for that stuff.

No idea, but I think the GT500 is doing it so I imagine that the Camaro will to.

you asked for it

Halo headlights, as I found out when I asked, are that ring of lights that you see. I've seen a few BMW's with them. I'm not all that impressed, but the masses like 'em so who am I to judge?

Umm nope. It's the glowing circle on the outside of the light like an angle's halo.

I can't decide...vert, coupe, vert, coupe...I can't take it anymore. I wish I had more money, I'd buy two or three.
