Drop-Top Dropped: 2011 Chevy Camaro Will Start at $30K, Debut in L.A.

Automobile Staff

The big news in first looks at concept and production vehicles this week might be in The City of Light, but Chevrolet hasn't left fans of American muscle high and dry. In the midst of Paris previews, Chevy has taken the wraps off the production version of its Camaro convertible following last week's auction of the first one off the line.

Like the preview pictures posted on Facebook indicated earlier this year, the Camaro convertible destined for production remains remarkably true to the 2007 concept. Production Camaro convertibles will follow trim level and powertrain schemes similar to the coupe's. Camaro convertibles will be powered by either a 312-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6, or a 426-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8, mated to either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission.

The first Camaro convertible fetched an auction price of $205,000, but the Camaro will hit dealerships with a price tag of $30,000 ($850 destination fee included). By comparison, base Camaro coupes list at $23,530 -- a difference of more than $6000.

Check back with Automobile Magazine on November 17 for the convertible's official launch in Los Angeles.
