Chevrolet Camaro Convertible delayed

Chevrolet Camaro Convertible fq

When Chrysler decided to cease plans for a Dodge Challenger convertible, few people in the industry were surprised. The coupe was never developed with a drop-top variant in mind and it would’ve taken far too much cash to shore up the chassis with the roof removed. Not to mention Chrysler’s financial woes.

Now, reports are coming in that General Motors is delaying the launch of the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible for the same reason, putting off the introduction for another year as the General attempts to keep its head above these financially troubled waters. Spending on such extravagances is hard to justify for both GM and consumers, and if the American federal bailout goes through, it’s safe to assume that legislators would have hard time seeing tax dollars being used to develop such a niche vehicle.
