Camaro fans have been waiting for the debut of the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro convertible and now that it has happened there was a nagging little question left. The question: How much is it going to cost? Let’s face it, no matter how good or how cool the car is, price always plays a factor into the success and popularity of the vehicle. So how much is a 2011 Camaro Convertible going to set you back?

The answer is at least $30,000; GM revealed today the price of the base model 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible. Now, that is still pretty affordable compared to other convertibles on the market, but Autoweek points out that it is about $2,000 more than a similarly priced Ford Mustang—easily the Camaro’s closest and most fierce competition. Maybe the $2,000 is an easy up-charge to pay for a car that has a more sophisticated suspension system; at least, it is a point that could be debated.

The Camaro drop top will come in all the same trim levels as its Coupe sibling and be available with the V6 or the V8 engine. One thing is for sure, Camaro convertibles from the GM showroom will cost a far cry less than the six figure purchase of the production No. 2 2011 Chevrolet Camaro convertible from the Barret-Jackson auction in Las Vegas last week. Cha-Ching.
