6th Gen Convertible...

One of the only things I miss about my previous car was dropping the top. Now that the pace is picking up for the 6th Gen, what do you all think about the convertible?

Will it be released in the first model year? Any chance of it being a hardtop? Does anyone even care, or are we too busy just being excited about a 6th Gen in the first place?

I hope it is NOT a hardtop convertible, I have never cared for the look of the cut lines on the roof panels or how the profile of the roof looks in general.

I want a soft top:

-Make it like the Stingray where the roof rests on top of the rear deck lid. This will eliminate the need for drainage bags.

- And have the folded roof get stored UNDER the rear deck lid
- Make it so you can raise/lower it at speeds of 30/35 mph

I think the Stingray (and C6) use a separate tonneau cover. Not part of the deck lid.

I hope they Camaro gets that as well, but it will depend a lot on the packaging and the $$$

The current Camaro would have required a unique trunk from the coupe to even have room for a separate panel.

I'm looking forward to seeing the convertible also. I hope it comes out pretty soon after the coupe.

Nope - the stingray uses the deck lid

Hard top preferred.

I'm with you. Even though the ragtop fits in with the classic image of what a Camaro is, I think the hard top is a cleaner look.

Cons of that are weight and cost, not likely in my opinion and out of character for the Camaro.

Yeah, I'm certainly not expecting it. In fact, I put it at about 2% chance.

I would certainly like the option, but I'm more about the looks than performance. The die-hards would certainly despise a hardtop!
