The 2017 Camaro ZL1 Convertible was launched at the 2016 New York Auto Show.
It was the performance version of the open-top Camaro.

The Camaro was offered in more bodywork versions over time, such as coupe, targa, or cabriolet. The Camaro started its career in the muscle-car era and it was one of the top performers of the era with its big engines under the hood. Unlike the Corvette, which was created as a sports car from the beginning, the Camaro was intended to be used more like a daily driver car.

The 2017 Camaro ZL1 Cabriolet featured a wider front side than its siblings. A wider body was needed to accommodate the wider, 285 tires on the front. Vertical LED running lights were incorporated in the outer air-intakes on the bumper. The big, front grille was black with a mesh-pattern. The hood was different than other Camaro convertible, to leave some room for the bigger engine. In the rear, a trunk-spoiler was installed more for image than for usage and it was a carry-over from the rest of the convertible range.

Inside, the bucket-seats were fitted as standard, and a pair of Recaro sport-bucket seats were offered as an option. The rear bench was profiled for two seats. With the roof down, a lid was on top of the retracted soft top. The suede and other expensive materials were on the dashboard, seats, and door panels.

Under the hood, there was an LT4 engine that could have been mated to a 6-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission.

No doubt, the Camaro is an icon of the American automotive industry.
Its name is connected to the pony-car wars and The Transformers franchise. But the need for a bigger market made GM to chop the Camaro roof of and make it a convertible. And, in 2019, this open-top went through a major facelift in order to be more appealing to the younger generation. That is why they gave it new LED-dual headlights and a reshaped hood.

Inside, there are enough features to stand-up to the new age of technology, with an infotainment unit that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. And, due to its big wheelbase, it is a real four-seater, just with two doors.

The 2019 modifications brought the 10-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters from the ZL1 version to the SS. Also, the 2.0-liter turbo engine was installed on a tailored chassis, derived from the V6 engine variants, which included a limited-slip differential and a six-speed manual transmission fitted as standard. The 275 hp and the 400 (295 lb-ft) of torque helped the convertible to move better in traffic, more fuel-efficient but still fast.

The 5.2 seconds needed for the 0 to 60 mph sprint (0-96 kph) place the convertible Camaro L1E in the hot hatch territory, but with rear-wheel-drive and a soft-top, which should make it better than a hot hatch.

Launched alongside the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, the Convertible model comes with an electro-hydraulic power roof system built with multiple layers to form acoustic and thermal barriers.
As with the coupe, the sixth generation Camaro Convertible features a stiffer, lighter structure and improved performance. It is offered in LT and SS trim levels with a list of six powertrain combinations to choose from. With a vicious looking bold design, the new Camaro Convertible was also meticulously tuned in the wind tunnel in order to reduce aerodynamic lift and increase fuel economy.

The refreshed Camaro Convertible made its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, featuring a fast, low-slung silhouette and Chevrolet’s new MyLink connected audio.
The new Camaro boasts improved high-performance aerodynamics that provide more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds. The front fascia has a wider lower grille and a narrower upper grille, while the functional hood vent helps reduce heat and aerodynamic lift. At the rear, a sculptural deck lid, horizontal lamps and a diffuser complete the new design. Both the coupe and the convertible sport a spoiler with integral antenna. Entering the new Camaro is straightforward and comfortable, thanks to standard remote keyless entry; on the automatic variant, customers can opt for a remote engine start functionality. Leather-appointed power adjustable Recaro sport bucket seats can be selected in the front for the coupe variant. Further interior highlights include a new color heads-up display and the new Chevrolet MyLink connected radio that is located in the center stack. The radio is built around a seven-inch high resolution full-color touch screen and has a clean, icon-based display menu.

At the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, Chevrolet introduced its most powerful convertible until then: the Camaro ZL1 Convertible.
It features the same ZL1 engine with 588 hp and 754 Nm (556 lb-ft) of torque as the ZL1 Coupe. The hardest part of Chevrolet’s engineers’ team was to stiffen the vehicle and made it performs more like a coupe than a convertible.

The designer’s team was also challenged to make the vehicle look great whether the fabric top was up or down. In the end, the result is a big 4.8 meters (15.9 ft) long car with a 2.9 meter (9.3 ft) wheelbase, able to accommodate four passengers without compromise on the rear seat legroom.

Under the hood is the famous 6.2-liter V8 supercharged engine mated to a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 6-speed automatic. This setup is good enough to propel the car from standing still to 100 kph (62 mph) in under 5 seconds and take it to a top speed of 250 kph (149 mph).

To reinforce the bodywork, Chevrolet installed a new brace under the hood, a reinforcement brace for the transmission, another underbody tunnel brace and a stiffer cradle plus an X brace under the engine compartment. This way, even if the car is heavier than the coupe, at least it won’t have a torsion feel when fast cornering.

After some delays due to the global economic crisis, Chevrolet finally decided to launch the Camaro Convertible in January 2011.
It was winter, but the orders quickly pushed the delivery time to spring.

The Camaro Convertible concept was shown as a concept-car in 2007, but by the time the project was finished, the financial crash hit hard the automotive industry and GM barely escaped from bankruptcy. It suffered, but remained standing up. In 2010, the Camaro Convertible project was brought back to light. Final touches and calculations were made and the assembly line was ready to start production. A small pre-series was made in December 2010.

It is hard to make a convertible to look better than the coupe version. Somehow, the GM designers succeed it and made it happened. While the front side and the beltline remained the same with those found on the coupe version, the fixed roof was replaced by a canvas top. It was completely retractable behind the rear seats, under a cover. The side rear windows were smaller, but they were retractable. The absence of a B-pillar was a good visual improvement.

Inside, there was a 2+2 configuration, and there was enough legroom for the rear passengers. The rest of the car interior and features were similar to the coupe version, including the front bucket-seats.

The Camaro Convertible was available in the LT and SS trims. The base model for the coupe version, the LS with the V6 was not available.

Chevrolet introduced the Camaro IROC-Z28 in 1984 for the 1985 model year.
The IROC-Z was option B4Z on the option sheet and could only be ordered with the Z28 package. This new performance icon boasted skid pad numbers within the range of .90 g but wasn’t exactly powerful by today’s standards. The top offering under the hood was the brand new Tuned Port Injection (TPI) 305 cubic inch V8, which first boasted 215 horsepower and 275 ft/lbs of torque, but was later tuned to about 230 hp. From a displacement of 5.7 liters, this doesn’t look like much, but for the economy standards influenced 1980s it was OK.
