When it comes to convertibles, there are really two kinds. First, you have hardcore performance models meant to make your jowls wiggle at speed. Secondly, you have comfortable, touring models that aren’t necessarily for open-top track times, but rather just for the sake of fun in the sun.
As of now, the only convertibles that GM makes are the 2014 Camaro Convertible, and the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible (soon). The last “soft” convertible that the U.S. market has had access to was a form of the Pontiac G6. Yet this may change.
In Europe, the Opel Cascada was released earlier this year as a front-wheel-drive comfy four-seater, and according to Edmunds, could be stateside sooner than we think, and most likely as a Buick model. Even General Motors CEO Dan Akerson said that he’d like to see the Cascada for sale in the U.S. market, and it’s a rumor that just won’t die.
Are all the signs pointing to yes? We hope so.
