Sure, it would have been great if the new Camaro convertible had a hard top, but it wasn’t going to happen for weight savings and cost reasons. Its weight loss of 200 lbs. over the previous generation would have been most likely eliminated with a hard top.
Now for the bad news. You’re not going to be able to buy the Camaro Convertible until the dead of winter: the ambiguous “early 2016.” Just make sure to buy a coat and some mittens to go along with it.
