Camaro Convertibles...18k more than a hardtop ?

I personally have no interest in the Camaro Convert as I like the hardtop sports cars. I was reading some information on it and they are saying 18k more than any model ??

That would make the 2SS Base $53,000 !!!! I would assume some dealers are doing the "Over Sticker" hype

I don't think so!! No way it would be that much more. Pricing wouldn't be that far off the Mustang convertible for a six cylinder and the the SS vs. the GT convertible.

That would be a huge number over the coupe. The corvette is slightly less than 5k difference from coupe to convertible. There will also be the same waiting list, price gouging like we have experienced with the coupe.

I for one can wait awhile on the vert and if it is 18k more - they can keep it!

Agreed. There hasn't even been any word on pricing for the Synergy Green, and those will be here before the convertible.

Just in looking they are a company that will convert your hardtop to a convert...no way would I ever think of doing that.

I thought it was the 2011 Camaro Pricing..

He is correct.

and you'll find a few companies already do this. they chop the roof and add a custom ragtop. It's not a GM modified car. It's a third party company creating their own verts from hardtop models.

Read the first sentence in the article again:

Rather than wait around for the official Chevy Camaro Convertible, Drop Top Customs is bringing their own version to SEMA.
You can NOT order the convertible from Chevy yet, so there is no pricing, but $5K is a safe bet.

Pricing is the last battle we have........


(.....marketing wants to charge $19.95 per car and financial wants to charge $5Mil a car - and we must meet somewhere atwixt the two....)



....won't be nearly that much.......

I will say this.....if the plan is to "dethrone" the Mustang, You will find the Convertible pricing....well........VERY competitive.

Did anyone bother to click the link and read the article. Its a 3rd party company that will convert your hardtop into a convertible. This isnt a production model coming off of the assembly line and has no affiliation with Chevy.

"Order right now, and we'll build and ship you your brand new 2010 Camaro for just $19.95! That's $19.95!

But wait! Order in the next 10 minutes, and we'll throw in a 2010 Aveo for FREE! That's right, you get a Camaro and an Aveo all for the low price of just $19.95!"

That's what happens when you title the thread the way this one does.

It's just a company that will gladly give you a convertible FOR A HUGE PREMIUM if you can't wait until the Camaro Convertible is available. And looking at some of the execution details................it would be worth the wait for the 2011 unless you absolutely will die without a drop top now.
