Here's the drop-top version of the 2016 Chevy Camaro

No line of new Camaros would be complete without a convertible — so here it is.

Introduced several weeks after its fixed-roof stablemate at an event in Detroit, the sixth-generation 2016 Camaro Convertible features a soft top that can be operated at speeds up to 30 miles per hour — no reason to pull over to the side of the road if it starts raining — and a hard tonneau that deploys when the roof is stowed. You can also operate the roof remotely using the wireless key fob.

Convertibles always add weight, but this one benefits from the same weight reduction as the coupe, shaving around 200 pounds off its fifth-generation equivalent. It'll be available in the same engine configurations as the coupe, too, ranging from a turbo four good for 275 horsepower up to a 6.2-liter V-8 at 455 horsepower. (Odds are good we'll see higher-performance versions, too, but those are down the road.)

Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but it'll be available early next year, ready to engage in its eternal battle against the Ford Mustang.
