As America’s most popular muscle car (based on current sales), the Chevrolet Camaro may not need an update. Nevertheless, the American firm is busy working on the sixth-generation Camaro and now a test mule has been spied in convertible guise for the very first time.
Even though the following Chevrolet Camaro Convertible prototype is heavily camouflaged, the fabric soft-top is on full display and it appears as though the rear window will have a similar shape to the next-gen Camaro coupe. Beyond the addition of a fabric roof of course, the new Camaro Convertible will remain visually identical to the coupe meaning all-new body panels across the car as well as thoroughly revised front and rear fascias.
Beneath the skin, the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible will ride on the same architecture as the coupe. That is General Motors’ Alpha platform and is currently used by the Cadillac CTS and ATS.
Elsewhere, a range of engines will be on offer. These will include a range-topping 6.2-litre V8 already spied testing on the famous Nurburgring as well as a small 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder from the aforementioned Cadillac models.
