The 1LE is conceived primarily as a track toy for the weekend warrior. Most of the 1LE package is devoted to sub-dermal handling enhancement, but there are some visual reminders that this is a little more than your garden variety Camaro SS—if any Camaro SS can be called garden variety.

The 1LE package doesn’t add power or reduce weight, but there are quite a few advancements here for those looking to take the Camaro SS to the track. Styling updates make it look impressive, though perhaps its most attractive feature is its pricing.

The SS 1LE is a well-balanced, track-ready, and sufficiently powered performance edition that will make any Camaro fan proud.

The 2011 Camaro SS coupe brings echoes of the first generation Camaro with its styling. Where it totally destroys the classic Camaro is under the hood.

The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible is a fast, pretty and advanced car. Its value and style kept me satisfied behind the wheel, and its virtues outweigh its faults.

The Camaro SS may not be the perfect vehicle — small quibbles here or there — but for this car, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It looks good, feels good and rides great. What more could a cruiser ask for?

I have driven my share of power-crazy convertibles, and the Camaro SS holds its own in the fun department for a fraction of the price of any exotic car.

The Camaro convertible offers a whole lot of performance and style for not a whole lot of money ($37,500, for a base SS). If you like the coupe, you’ll like the convertible at least as much.

There will always be die-hard Camaro guys, and the SS is a great way to get their fix. For the rest of us, it remains a forbidden and slightly taboo pleasure, something to indulge in occasionally, without the expense of owning or operating one.

The problem with the Camaro SS Convertble is that the attention and excitement that come with driving al fresco in a car so fast, sexy, and unapologetically masculine are dangerously addictive to the male ego.

The Camaro could also use a little more trunk room and rear visibility. But that’s the cost of its gorgeous styling, the best thing out of GM in a while. Considering the Camaro SS costs just $37,065 in base form, it’s also something of a bargain.

Infinitely more appealing with its top peeled back, the Camaro almost seems reborn as a convertible. In SS garb, it packs the motivation – and the exhaust growl – to harken back to the ’60s, but its rock solid structure and composed ride are positively 2011.
