If you've been waiting for the arrival of the Camaro ragtop, your time is coming soon. The 2011 Camaro convertible will debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on November 17.
Production versions are scheduled to hit showrooms in February and the starting price for a V-6 version will be $30,000, including $850 destination. We'll deliver more information on SS pricing as it becomes available, but it appears both will be a couple of thousand more than a comparable Mustang convertible.
"The convertible will make the all-new Camaro, already a smash-hit, even more desirable to a greater range of drivers," says Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing.
The convertible model will be available in the same basic model offering as the Camaro coupe. The standard model will have a 312-hp Direct Injection V-6 engine. The SS model gets the gutsy 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine producing 426 hp. A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with an optional six-speed automatic.
The right to purchase one of the first Convertibles was recently sold at the Barrett-Jackson auction for $205,000, with all proceeds donated to charity.
