The shooters at KGP Photography have gotten the first definitive shots of the ’16 Camaro Convertible, caught testing with clear evidence of a soft-top in place.
Some recent Camaro prototypes have had newly camouflaged roofs, leading to some speculation that they might be testing the new convertible. Those prototypes had several details, however, that pointed to the existence of solid roof rails, and no noticeable breaks at the Camaro’s A-pillar and headliner. With these latest Camaro test cars, it is certain that those earlier prototypes are clearly not convertibles. Whether they’re hiding something else—like a throwback to the classic T-Top—is still up for debate.
The Camaro Convertible’s soft roof is uncovered in these new shots, and elements of the roof’s understructure can be seen underneath the soft surface. A redesigned B-pillar area has more of a glass-to-glass treatment than the Camaro Coupe. There is also the clear presence of a seam where the soft-top meets the headliner. The Camaro convertible exists, and it’s now testing alongside the Camaro Coupe, suggesting a possible simultaneous launch—just as on the new ’15 Mustangs.
