2014 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible

I first caught a glimpse of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro in person at the New York Auto Show, and the Convertible version (by way of pictures) at its far-flung debut in Germany. As a car writer, a V8 enthusiast, a convertible diehard and, most days, no fool, I've wanted to get my turn in this very car ever since. The Camaro SS Convertible rumbled up to my door in 2SS trim, meaning my first go with the deeply attractive pony car would lack for neither bells nor whistles, nor imposing 20-inch aluminum wheels. While undoubtedly pricey, fully loaded with a manual transmission is a great way to... Read More

    The SEMA Show in Las Vegas is almost universally more show than go. The monster performance cars and unholy super-modified rides that line the show halls are undoubtedly impressive, but we journalists rarely have the chance to do much more than look at them while we're in town. So, it was a real breath of fresh air to hang out with Chevy at Las Vegas ...

    We've talked about Pure Vision Design before, a California-based company that made waves at last year's SEMA show with its Martini-liveried, Indy-car-powered Ford Mustang. That same car later starred in a Petrolicious video we showed you just a few weeks back. The company's latest creation is a menacing car it calls the Pure Vision Design TT Camaro. Based ...

    Chevy's goal at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week seems to be to show as much of its Performance and Accessories catalog as possible. That's why it brought three different Camaros - two with V8s and one powered by a V6 - with all of the best goodies from the catalog already fitted. We gave a more in-depth recap of the Performance Camaro V8 Concept, ...

    Unveiled just blocks from the Las Vegas Strip, the 2014 Chevrolet COPO Camaro made its big debut at SEMA preparing to hit a different kind of strip. This purpose-built drag car is pretty much a carryover from recent COPO cars, with just 69 planned for production, and with the new 2014 Camaro styling. Looking to stage up against Mustang Cobra Jets and ...

    If you read both of our pieces on Chevrolet's SEMA lineup, you'll note we mentioned a revised COPO Camaro, but didn't say anything beyond that. Quite simply, we didn't have all the facts then. Now we do – this is the 2014 COPO Camaro, and it is ready dominate drag strips. Following tradition, only 69 2014 COPO Camaros will be built, each of which ...

    According to Edmunds, Chevrolet is recalling 18,941 Camaro models in the United States due to airbag warning stickers on the sun visors that may peel off. This might not seem like a big deal, but, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration puts it, "If the airbag warning label detaches from the visor, the driver and front seat passenger may not ...

    Of all the bragging rights that volley back and forth between Mustang and Camaro owners, there is one category that most owners probably don't want to be tops in: theft. The National Insurance Crime Bureau released a top 10 list for thefts of sporty cars for the 2010 to 2012 model years between January 2009 and December 2012, and it found that the Camaro ...

    A couple of weeks ago we brought you footage and official times of the new Chevy Camaro Z/28 lapping the Nürburgring. With a 7:37.47 lap time, the Z/28 emerged as the fastest muscle car ever to lap the circuit. But what was missing from that picture was how fast the king of all Mustangs, the Shelby GT500, could manage to lap the Nordschleife. Ford ...

    As we just learned in our Deep Dive of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Chevy built this car with the track-focused Porsche 911 GT3 and Nissan GT-R owners in mind, but that doesn't mean the Camaro-Mustang rivalry is dead. Using the same Z/28 that just set a 7:37 lap time at the Nürburgring, Chevy brought the hi-po coupe back to its super-secret, ...

The modern Camaro concept first debuted at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show, and in early 2014 – over eight years later – the Z/28 will finally be available for public consumption. It is perhaps the most highly anticipated ...

    Muscle cars, as their name implies, are historically more about muscle than they are about the performance it brings. 0-60 and quarter-mile times, sure, but not lap records on twisting and turning road courses. But Chevy is out to change all that with the latest Camaro Z/28. The Bowtie brand has just published in-car video footage of the new Z/28 lapping ...

Take the Chevrolet Camaro, for instance, and imagine being able to swap some of the most crucial ZL1 parts onto your SS or V6 model. Well, that's now a reality because Chevrolet Performance has ...

Remember when Chevy took the wraps off of its new C7 Corvette Stingray droptop, it did so in Geneva. Besides, it's nice to see a bit of 'Murican muscle storming the ...
