Chevy Boss: 2011 Camaro Convertible Privately Shown to Dealers This Week
Date posted: 10-08-2009
Per Edmunds Inside Line

10/8/2009

DETROIT — The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible appears to be speeding toward reality, according to Chevrolet Vice President Brent Dewar. He said in a Web chat on the GM FastLane blog late Wednesday that the convertible was privately shown to Chevy dealers this week.

"We are working on the specific timing, but it will come out soon," Dewar wrote.

There were fears that GM would scrap the model as a cost-cutting measure. Dewar was asked if Chevrolet will bring back the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 in 2011, and his response was not encouraging.

"We have not officially decided to bring back the Camaro Z28," he said.

Of course that was his answer.... he cant say its officially coming back because it hasnt been officially announced.

Could just be that they do not want to "officially" announce it till it gets closer to the time of being produced, or they decide what the Z28 will actually offer as an engine, looks, different parts, etc. etc. I think that it's coming back just still might be a year or so before they "officially" announce it. Just IMHO though.

I personally hope they don't bring back the Z28. The second the Z28 hits the market, my 2SS RS is no longer king.

Oh hell...

It's officially unofficial that the official return of the unofficial Z28's production will officially be started in Oct of 2011 (or so)....unofficially, of course. That is the most "official" information that can be divulged at this time. ...on the record, of course...

GM needs to get past it. As if the announcement from .....um....who was it?!?!?! ....wasn't good enough. Shoot. Now ALL the GM people are talking about it and one guy is going to backstep?

TOO LATE DUDE!

The cat is out of the bag!!!

OFFICIALLY!!!

Exactly! I also hope they don't make it, and if they do, I don't want it to be superior to the SS!

Come on...

are you guys serious???

You don't want GM to build a GT500 killer?

....just because you want your SS to be "king" of your model???



You have GOT to be kidding me....
