I am not usually a convertible person, but this has sparked my interest.

Sure does look very classy & sexy... sans rear quarter panel vents, it's less aggressive but will still turn heads left & right.

Soon we'll see if the rear view/design resembles this rendition...

I can kinda see how the vents would get in the way of the convertible mechanism though.

I am going to give is some serious credit to the fact that they make it look clean with the top down. My one major complaint with the convertible Camaro is how the top is just floating in the wind while driving.

As with the C5 & C6, the C7 was designed as a "topless" model from the start so there's not that much additional bracing required probably. Add in that GM is staying with a well designed soft top (not a trunk devouring hard top) and that allows for great packaging and a very slick tonneau cover. Also glad to see the waterfall return. Looks extremely well done - my wife is the convertible fan in the family so this may be the model that pushes her over the edge as well
