'Matthewmiller01', it'll be a soft-top - weight.

GM really "has it going" with their styling now.

First the Camaro, then I hear the new Cadillac CTS is nice, (and a coupe CTS too?! ), and the new Malibu is very nice looking as well. Oh! Forgot the new Silverado!

My God. I am in awe. I was kind of speechless the first time around and didn't know where to begin. I just left it at that.

Love what they have done. Just love it. Love the color matching dash. Love the circular blue dash lights. Love the two tone seats w/ matching piping. Love the seat belts ( I mean...c'mon!). Love the temp gauge, direction heading, etc. This is all coming together so well! I too, would take a hard top, but those above say that will not be happening. GM hasn't officially announced it (give it a couple days and they will verify) but it's gonna be a soft top. That's the sad part for me. I won't buy a soft top. It's either a coupe or hard top vert.

Just WOW

Up until now, I have never wanted to own a convertible for any reason... But DAMN that car is even sexier in drop top style, goose bumps you ask... I have this urge to take up a second full time job so I can walk in to the dealership and pay cash for two right now!! One drop top, one Hard top

Chevrolet has got their groove.. Nothing can slow them up now.

Oh yeah, this one looks WAY better than than the pictures make it look, and much hotter than the coupe. I'll still be getting the coupe in production though for that sexy roofline, and it looks better than EITHER of the showcars!

I like it. But it will still be a hard top for me. And I think they should do more than just orange stitching, maybe add a lil more orang inserts into the seats or what ever color you get the car in. Now that would be nice.

Just.............WOW!

Long time lurker, first time poster (just joined.....)

My 2nd car ever was a '68 Camaro but my all time fav is the '69 Z28, cross-ram 302, Hugger Orange with white stripes. Told myself the new Camaro will probably have to be my next car especially IF it can come orange/white stripes.

Well, the new Hugger Orange Pearl is absolutely gorgeous and gun metal stripes look awesome. And yes, I too STILL have goose bumps!

My god that's a beautiful car but I'll have a hard time going with a "vert" if it's not a hard-top vert. Already have 2 die casts, 2 hot wheels, GM only chrome die cast, one poster, and the orange t-shirt. Ordered a vert poster and the new/69 shirt today and am on the Camaro info list at my local dealership. Maybe I'm hooked?

Sorry for the bandwidth but I had to chime in and, by the way, I pretty much love EVERYTHING about this vehicle.
Wow, just WOW!

WHOA....just found these pics of the new Convertible. I can't wait to get one. This is incredible. I saw the Coupe this past Summer in Carlisle and thought it was pretty cool. Now this.......have I died and gone to heaven?

Chevrolet has got their groove.. Nothing can slow them up now.

Unfortunately I'm thinking Chevy is going to make the same mistake they've always made by designing Camaros that don't appeal to women. If the ladies don't like 'em, then sales suck, and they lose to the 'Stangs out there, because girls tend to go for those.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's the most beautiful car I've seen in my life... but I'm pretty sure given the choice between a Mustang and a Camaro, most women would take the mustang.

And then what happens? They discontinue the car. =(

Very good point. I hope there's a lot more ladies out there that like the new Camaro more than the 4th Gen. GM needs to be able to sell this new Camaro to both men and women. Let's hope for the best. Which brings me to a question for everyone here...I'm curious to know the ratio of males to females on the site...putting up a poll in a new thread.

Those are some good videos. I'm glad to have heard a bit of info on the interior. Sounds like for production models, what we see is just about what we'll get. Again, I'd say wheel size, door handles, mirrors, maybe gas cap location, maybe different headlights. I mean, what else would they want to change? Of course it will be 12 mm taller and narrower than the concept. It's looking real good.

I think one change I'd like to see would be for them to flatten out the grille a little bit. I think it looks a little weird to have it jut out so far from the headlights. But hey, even if that doesn't change, I'm buying one someday.

That was my first dislike as well. After a while, it grew on me. I'm sure that the aftermarket will come up w/ something for those who insist on changing it out. Yep...it took some time, but I like it now.
