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.

    Frankfurt: 2014 Chevy Camaro Convertible brings 'Murica to the Messe
    1378830660

    You might find it strange for Chevy to use its Frankfurt Motor Show stage to debut the droptop version of its very America-centric Camaro Convertible, but it's actually not that out of place. 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 ...

    It was morning on Woodward Avenue again. Like the first post-9/11 Saturday Night Live in which Lorne Michaels famously asked New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani if it was it OK to be funny again, at some point in the early 1980s, car manufacturers asked the question "Is it OK to be fast again?" The memory of the second energy crisis was receding, the ...

    Report: Holden VF Monaro coupe would look like this
    1377279120

    Let us make one thing abundantly clear - the car you see above has virtually zero chance of making it into production. None. Zilch. Nada. Zip. That said, we certainly wish it were going on sale. This is the VF Coupe, a rendering put together by a pair of off-the-clock Holden designers and Dsine International. It's meant to show what a VF Monaro, a ...

    The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray might be hogging all the spotlight, but Chevy has another bit of excitement heading to dealers this fall: the new Z/28 Camaro. We first reported on the Z/28 at the 2013 New York International Auto Show in March, and while we still haven't gotten to take it for a spin, it's no surprise that it's already on our 2014 ...

    The man who, on the internet, goes by the name Speedycop has unleashed his latest crazy contraption on the racing masses at LeMons: an upside-down Camaro. Speedycop, self-described as "an eight-year-old kid trapped in a 40-year-old body, with just enough talent to pull off my wacky ideas," fashioned this beast out of the sordid carcasses of two vehicles, ...

    While we had our first genuine look at the 2014 Camaro SS back at the New York Auto Show this spring, we hadn't yet gotten a glimpse of the droptop version of the pony car, until now. Nabbed near Chevy's home turf in beautiful Milford, MI, the '14 Camaro SS Convertible looks ready for prime time as-is. We'll be honest: From the shoulder-line up, this new ...

    There's still plenty of time until Transformers 4 hits the big screen, and Michael Bay & Co. are making sure there is plenty of suspense in the meantime. Which is good, because we're not really expecting any actual suspense from the flick.

That's what happened to a twin-turbo F-body Chevrolet Camaro with 1,800 horsepower at the wheels as it was being prepped for the Texas Mile, when the drag radials decided they would rather ...
