hopefully you can take delivery when I do!

Overall I like it. The rear deck looks too cluttered with the shark fin and CHMSL placement. I like the new rear spoiler and think it fits better on the convert than the coupe. I really think GM should have found a way to integrate the CHMSL into the new spoiler as it would have really cleaned up the rear deck.

It's ok, but convertibles aren't my thing. I wouldn't buy one.

There's no key hole on the hard top because the rear seats fold down. But on a convertible that wouldn't be the case. And in the event of power failure you need a key to gain access to trunk. All convertibles hide the key hole somewhere, some more discretely than others. Maybe GM will put it behind the bow tie like VW does since they stole the VW switchblade key.

Camaro rag top

It is a winner. Beautiful car.
I was wondering: GM has built 2 hardtop convertibles, the Saab and the Pontiac G6 had folding hardtops/convertibles.
We are aware that the biggest draw back in a rag top is all that rattling! with top up or down.
As an owner of the G6 convertible, it is quieter than any cloth top.

How would a hardtop convertible do as part of the lineup?
It would be a shame that the technology would just disappear because it lacks a car to put it into!

Best
Ricky

GM sweat the details please.

I'll take care of the roll bar.

I believe he is referring to the teaser picture posted on the Camaro Facebook page that showed a keyhole.

I thought that is what the manual pull under the drivers seat was for??? And VW lol

It is about damn time. I have been waiting FOREVER. I do wish they would give a hard top option or open roof more like the Corvette. Always another wishlist.

I am guessing it will be realitively easy to get a smaller color coded antenna in place of the shark fin?? It would also look slamming with a blade spoiler like on the vintage verts.

Ahh it will be nice to have one next year.

The spoiler is different. I kind of like it. This Convertible will be a big seller with the ladies. Not that they don't like coupes, but a lot of ladies like convertibles. It will also be a big hit with the rental car companies in the south.

Shark fin and brake light... seems to be the biggest complaint. Solution: Incorporate the third brake light into the spoiler and do the same with the shark fin using a tapered center section. I am drafting up some concepts now. GM show me the money honey, and I will send you my prototype drawings!

The sculpture of the Gen5 Camaro is lost in the convertible. Not having the roof hurts the overall look. We know how bad convertible's look with the roof up.

I'm sorry but I'm disappointed. I'm not a Mustang fan, but their convertible looks great. I'm glad I'm ording a 2011 Camaro coupe in a few weeks. I don't think the convertible is going to be the desirable car (high value) 20 years from now.

Now a factory T-TOP would be a different story, but I don't think there's enough model years left on this platform for GM to pursue it. They should build the next generation with that in mind.
