2007 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Concept

We’ll wait to see, of course, and a good indication will be found in the passenger compartment. Interior design has become the new auto industry battleground, and GM is ramping up spending, on average, several hundred dollars a vehicle on its cabins. The interior of the Camaro concept coupe, with its deep-orange metal accents, was unexpectedly elegant, and the new convertible is even more appealing.


To provide an airy feel, the color theme is light-on-dark. The seats are platinum-on-black suede and leather. The round-gauges-in-square-holes design of the instrument panel is clearly influenced by the original Camaro. Smoked satin aluminum provides the accent with such elements as the vents, seat handles, and seatbelt buckles, while the shifter and pedals have been forged from billet aluminum.


When the Camaro coupe rolled into Cobo last year, heralded by a marching band, it was still the subject of a lot of internal debate at GM. Not so the convertible. With the two-door hardtop on the production schedule for 2009, the automaker has already gone and reserved a place for the ragtop to follow, a matter of months later.


No surprise. It’s easy to imagine the convertible will prove as big a hit this year as the Camaro coupe did in January 2006.
