2010 Chevy Camaro Convertible -- Click above for high-res image gallery

Camaro5 forum member isszy caught shots of eight freshly minted Camaro convertibles in Australia. Spotted outside the Holden factory in Fisherman's bend, Melbourne, the poster said they all appeared to be left-hand-drive.

The tan-and-silver color combination isn't one we would have thought of – the black-roofed guy at the end is much more like it – but the roofline itself looks very good. The last we were informed by GM, the car should arrive next year as a 2011 model. Hat tip to Tim!

      Hi guys,

      I'd just like to make a correction to the original post here. I am not a member of Camaro5, but www.gminsidenews.com. The camaro5 link was posted by a fellow member but incorrectly picked up by Autoblog as having originated at camaro5.

      Any chance of having the original post corrected to reflect the real source ?

      Thanks,
      isszy

      While the development has been done in Australian because its based on the Zeta platform, the build of production vehicles is done at the GM Plant in Oshawa, Canada.

      For the record the equipment necessary to make the convertible has been at the Oshawa plant since last year but its launch was postponed. Having made the investment in the equipment lets hope that GM actually produce it. Just not with that tacky, ugly Tan roof, and hopefully no ugly tan interiors either.

      the tan and silver looks great on Miatas but not as much here. give it a navy top with tan interior and you have a winner. but probably more luxury color combo than sporty.

      white with gray is what i want to see.

      I'm glad to see them get away from the fugly one piece convertible top that was on the old F-Bodies .
      Having a small rear side glass gets rid of the blind-spot. Hope it rolls down to make a cool hard-top look with the convertible top up .

      The Holden plant is actually in Elizabeth, South Australia, Australia.

      Too bad it'll be $35,000+ for the SS model. Maybe in 3-4 years when they're only $20k used I'll grab one, but for now, I'll stick to finding an 04-06 S2K.

      I give it the thumbs down........ once the novelty wears off I just don't think the camaro will last beyond a few years,

      Soft top!? Common! Hard-Tops are so much better!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yeah, if you want your car to be uglier, heavier, and less usable...
      • 5 Years Ago
      Yes, the vehicle manufacturing plant is in Elizabeth, however these photos were taken at the Fisherman's Bend in Melbourne, which is the head office and design centre, and also the engine plant. I know - I took them.

      I hope people realise that the Camero is (pretty much) the all Australian Holden Commodore (Pontiac G8) with another shell on it. I hope it doesn't take out too much structural regidity.
      In agreement with Autoblog poster (Jonathon): SILVER WITH LIGHT POO BROWN ROOF :S who in there right mind would by that combo?!
      This photo was take only about 30minutes drive from my place maybe I'll go check them out :)

        You've been listening to Hamhock. Stop doing that.

        The Holden and Camaro are both Zeta platform cars, but the Camaro has enough differences to be more than "...the all Australian Holden Commodore (Pontiac G8) with another shell on it."
