The 2nd decade of the 21st century will witness the Chevrolet
Camaro open a new chapter of the "Pony Car" story when the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro convertible arrives in
North American Chevy dealers in February 2011.
In the meantime, the production-ready version of this new model will make its premiere at the Los Angeles
Motor Show on 17th November, 2010.
“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 V6 engine. The SS model will feature the 6.2 litre V8 engine
producing 426 hp. A six-speed manual transmission will be standard, with an optional six-speed automatic.
Camaro is America’s most popular sports car, seizing leadership in U.S. sales with the coupe model that
launched in the northern spring of 2009 as a 2010 model.
