Nice job on getting the shots, I have been holding out for the Vert and if they dont make those changes that everyone in here is suggesting then I will most likely get a Hardtop SS with a sunroof, it looks to me like they have a long ways to go before they put out the final product, a nice form fitting boot cover will really clean this up as well.

Agreed. Verts aren't my thing. That pic from the side makes the whole back end look.....out of place?

I'm holding on for my vert just a little longer. Why, why have the windows up!! I sure hope they put the third brake light molded into the rear spoiler. Thanks so much for the pics, I hope they keep coming!

Looks good but may look better with the windows down.

i agree with many here, soft top convertibles don't look anywhere near as good as hard top versions. however i won't be driving it with the top up very often...

the vert for me will be a weekend/night out driver. if this changes i will be sure to look into having a hard top made for it.

to everyone complaining about the placement of ugliness (and it is ugly) on the trunk, and assuming GM doesn't see the light and fix it:

if you aren't buying it as an investment, change it. none of those items are immovable...

if you are buying it as an investment... then why does it matter?

if you aren't buying it, your opinions don't matter :p

Disagree, I regularly drive 100+mph in 50F weather. Windows are up, heater is on.

In fact, even in warm weather if I'm going faster than 60mph and want to hear the stereo the windows are up.

Oh, yeah, I see what you mean. Well besides that the antenna and 3rd brake light just ruin the rear end.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I will keep my eyes peeled for it again (and will keep my real camera on me)

I have a feeling its going to look great in person because 2d pictures don't capture the camaro as well as it looks in person due to the muscular angles and small details the camera doesn't pick up

the car is dirty and its missing emblems...a showroom version is going to look amazing...can't wait to see it in IOM

in the pictures though it looks more like a bmw m6 than the convertible concept but imagine doing the tailpipe mod on this to look like the concept

i've never owned a convertible though and i don't want any sun damage on my face...if i get this it might be a secondary vehicle where the top goes down at night or on occasion in the daytime

or i could get the coupe and just make it a daily driver...

but i'll wait till i see the vert at an auto show

I could always just buy a wide brim cowboy hat and sunglasses for the day time

I feel sure the 3rd brake light and xm ant will much different on the production version. Cleaned up with the windows down, 3rd brake light in the spoiler and no xm ant and it will look great. I love crusing around in my 68 Convertible. I think once everyone sees the production version opinions will change.

There is no excuse to have the top down and windows up.

Cool

The nice problem with the convertible is that............. the driver must be female

A guy in a convertible does not work for me

With 300+ HP it better have roll bars and crash helmets

Nope that's it except maybe the antennas can be combined into one.

Nope, except for the top and trunklid it's identical to the coupe. It's the coupe with the best looking part cut off. As opposed to the Corvette vert which is the coupe with the worst looking part cut off. The rear seat headroom is excellent though with the top down!
