Now I AM a convertible guy and honestly... it looks very "meh"

The car's lines just don't justify them making a convertible version of this car. It doesn't look right at all and thus should not have been made. It will fail against a mustang convertible and I hate mustangs.

It kinda reminds me of like an A4 convertible... there really isn't a huge market for 4 seat convertibles.

Top up makes the car look weird and those who live in cooler climates will have a horrendous time trying to keep this car's top in good shape. They would have been better served making a convertible out of the CTS coupe and leaving the vette as the only convertible in their Chevy lineup.

IF anything, a panoramic roof or t-top version would have been better served for this car.

Anyways, next gen should be smaller, that will warrant a better looking convertible imo.

I hope they don't flood "fleet vehicle" markets with this car. The Z28 will fare a lot better in sales.

I think I'll hold onto my SS for a little bit and see if it's worth trading it in for a Z28 or wait until next gen Vette comes out.

Talking Repost. . . as it may be important! :)

I love all Camaros, 'CAUSE THEY'RE CAMAROS! Srrsly tho, I think the coupe certainly has stronger lines, however, I like GIRLS! Girls LOVE convertables. . . . don't really know if I'd buy a vert, all though, I am sure I will test drive one and consider it before I make a decision!

OH, and you're all welcome for my solid scientific formula incorporating a prioritizing methodology for the best possible outcome of desired results!

hehehehe lol

oh and PS, . . the black on black. . yeap its nice.

I'm not that in to convertibles (except for maybe '63-'67 Corvettes).... Not feeling this. Might be great for those that like a convertible, it's just not me.

Maybe a Z28 will do the trick?!?!

I would love to see the Z-28 convertible. The convertible wouldn't be my choice!

There's probably going to be too much torque for a Z-28 convert. I had a '67 Camaro SS/RS 396 convertible and cowl shake was terrible. Now I know engineering has come a long way in 30+ years but they still make bridges with top spans.

Dealers can start to submit both stock and sold orders into Order Workbench on Thursday, November 18, 2010.

Production of the 2011 Camaro Convertible is planned to begin at Oshawa in mid January 2011.

Yup-

I spoke with my dealer last week, I've got an appointment with him Thurs (18th) at 8:30am to submit my order... He's coming in on his day off to take it! $1,000 deposit (however I assume that may depend on local dealer policy...)

A helpful little tid-bit I just learned (after being in talks with my local dealers for over a year)... they decided today to inform me of a $5000.00 "Market Adjustment" being added to the convertible. This is Suburban Chevy in Stuart Florida... I checked around locally, Ft Pierce coudn't quote how much extra they were charging (but there will be a charge), and multiple West Palm dealers were also at $5000, rediculous!

Spent all day searching, finally put down a deposit in Saint Cloud Florida (100 miles North) with a written price garuntee at MSRP. #2 to be entered into the workbench on Thursday morning, with a dealership allotment of 15 units! Woo-hoo, FINALLY!!!!!

So it is a definite that dealers all over the US can enter an order for the vert on Thursday the 18th, correct??? I just want to be sure of the date, b/c it seems the dealerships don't even know when they can place the order. Are they sent an email saying they can enter their orders on a certain date?

Where is the info on options, ect.? I haven't seen links to that yet? I remember there was loads of stuff that I had printed out to take with me when I ordered mine on 10/13/08.
