2011 Camaro SS Convertible

At this point in time we’ve reviewed just about every version of Chevrolet’s Camaro. Whether it was the 3.6-liter 312 hp Camaro RS or the stump pulling SS with 426 hp, we’ve established our own opinions on Chevy’s new pony car. One item that both Kurt and myself have come away with though is the fact that you can’t see a damn thing out of this car due to the chopped roof line and massive rear pillars. For 2011 though Chevrolet has seen fit to remedy that by simply taking a Sawzall to the thing and chopping the roof clean off. The guys from Edmunds Inside Line were lucky enough to get their hands on one and put it through its paces on the test track and I have to say, it did much better than I expected. In the past convertibles where ill-handling, wallowing messes of engineering, but times have changed as the manufacturers are now able to give their convertibles just as much torsional rigidity as their hard tops. If you don’t believe me just click play on the video and take a look for yourselves. The 2011 Camaro drop top hammers to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds, blitzes the 1/4 mile in 13.3, and manages to pull .88 on the skid pad. Not only are those great numbers, but you’ll now be able to achieve them and see where you’re going at the same time.

    I read a review of this car in the WSJ yesterday that said the roof leaks! But in nicer weather, this is a vert I could see myself driving. With the top down, I bet it sounds lovely.
