Not to burst your bubble, but its the same a the 2010 minus the roof. This has been out since 2008 and should be in production from what I read, sometime in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2010.

My advice .... buy a 2010.

This is the concept and the 422 horsepower was an estimate before they finalized the numbers and it came to 426... NICE TRY! Don't believe everything you read okay?

Serious question though, is there any info about what they're doing for the 2011 model (not the convertable). any major changes?

Besides the other problems pointed out above, the Camaro does not require premium, but it is recommended.

The pictures are clearly the convertible concept.

I saw some more pictures of the 2011. And I'm not really impressed. If I had a choice, I would take the 2010 model hands down (and not because I already own one :/). I don't like the look of the gauges, any of them. The stereo, though very modern/futuristic just doesn't end up sitting right with me.

I guess to me, this car should be "new" but "old" and the 2010 does that. The 2011 is trying to be a new car without giving up that old and it's trying to do that with too many things, and for me it doesn't work.

Now, if they change these things (as it was the concept I was looking at), obviously my opinion will change.

You are not going to get better info on that site than you will get here.

That was created wayy back in 2007-2008 when we still didn't know much about the Camaro. Much less when it would be released. So someone made a site thinking the Camaro would be released in 2011.

Of course they were wrong......


We don't know a whole lot about the real 2011 Camaro

except there will be a convertible option. other than that, there wont be any major changes. maybe another paint option, but nothing big (engine change, body design, etc)

On the contrary, we know a whole lot more about the 2011 Camaro than we did about the 2010 Camaro just 2 years ago. We know the engines and transmissions, that the primary V8 will be the SS, and we have a good idea of the price range. Do you remember the long discussions we had about all of this?
