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

    Study: Camaro, Mustang, Challenger are America's most stolen sporty cars
    1383174000

    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 ...

    Video: Shelby GT500 laps Nürburgring in under 7:40?
    1383150780

    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 ...

Head on over to the Chevy Facebook page for an assortment of stencils to create cool, Chevy-themed jack-o'-lanterns, but bring your X-Acto knife because some of them look very challenging.

    1381950060

    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, ...

    To hear Al Oppenheiser, chief engineer for the Chevrolet Camaro, tell it, the brand-new 2014 Z/28 is "the car everyone expects." 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 ...

    Official: Chevy Performance unveils Camaro factory-built performance upgrades

    There's nothing like a factory-built part, especially of the performance variety: you can make your car faster, often without voiding the vehicle warranty. 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 ...

    This guy drag-racing his T-Top-equipped fourth-generation Chevrolet Camaro has no idea that it could be the end for his very precious roof - that one miscalculated move could end it all with a loud explosion and flying debris. The driver remains completely unharmed, but not everything comes away unscathed. A GoPro camera attached to the glass T-Top panel ...

    Most of us would be happy to simply buy a high-performance vehicle like a Chevrolet Corvette and let the experts do the assembly. But for nearly a decade now, General Motors has offered customers the opportunity to assemble their own engines. The build-your-own engine program has allowed customers to come by the GM Performance Build Center in Wixom, ...

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

    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 ...

The memory of the second energy crisis was receding, the ...

    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 ...

    You might expect an American automaker to reveal its latest muscle car at an American auto show.

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 ...

    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 ...
