Introducing the Coolest Car Ever Made: The 2011 Camaro Convertible

Introducing the Coolest Car Ever Made!!!!!!!!
The 2011 Camaro Convertible

Today Chevy showed off the first production photos of the upcoming 2011 Camaro Convertible. In my personal opinion, this is the coolest, best-looking, best-performing car ever made!!!!!!

Almost 30 years ago, when I was early 15, before I was old enough to drive, I fell in love with the stainless Rolex Submariner and the 1969 Chevy Camaro. When I was 16 I bought my first stainless steel Rolex Submariner, and I drove a 1969 Camaro. I was very unimpressed with the way the 1969 handled and that was the last time I ever wanted an American car.

The irony is that when I was in high-school I wanted to be an automotive designer, but I realized American cars were absolute cardboard junk, and I did not want to move to Germany, so I ended up designing clothes and computers.

So essentially, all my adult life, there was NEVER an American car I wanted to own. This struck me as being totally bizarre that I lived in a country that put a man on the Moon, and designs things like the Apple iPhone, but made half-baked cars.

Today, that all changed, and I am very excited to introduce you to the first American car I would be happy to own–The 2011 Camaro Convertible.

The V8 SS version should start around $40,000 and do 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds. In order to get this kind of performance out of a Mercedes SL you have to spend $200.000 for an SL AMG, and in my personal opinion, this looks way cooler!!!!!

The Camaro Convertible will make its debut at the Los Angeles Auto show in November and go on sale in February 2011. With the advent of the Chevy Camaro Convertible, I can proudly say, the American Muscle car is back with a vengeance!!!!!!! This car is ultra-cool and I can't wait to get one!!!!!!!

2011 JAKEe Convertible Camaro Prototype

2011 JAKEe Convertible Camaro Prototype

Hi Everybody!!!

As some of you know, when I was in high-school, I wanted to go onto become an automotive engineer, but I could not get myself to do it, because at the time, and we are talking mid 1980s, American auto design was at an all-time low.

This was a very big disappointment to me, and I have never liked or desired to own an American car in my life. That is until I first saw an early prototype of the all-new Chevy Camaro Concept Convertible.

I went and test drove the 2010 hardtop (not pictured) Chevy SS V-8 Camaro, and it completely blew my mind!!! Not only was it like driving a rocket-ship, but it also handled like a dream. The all new Camaro SS V8 muscle car does 0-60 MPH in only 4.5 Seconds, which is just perfect if you ask me.

Like many other Camaro enthusiasts, I have been patiently awaiting the announcement of the all-new Chevy Camaro convertible and it seems like it has been an eternity. I first saw spy photos of it several years ago, and just two days ago, on the forum, they showed off these four spy shots of the car being tested. Well kind of.

The challenge was the photos they showed were of a red Camaro, and I want a dark Cobalt blue, with a touch of purple (if you are old enough, think Duncan Yo-Yo). I also want the white racing stripes I designed, and I also want to powder-coat the brake calipers in red. I also think it would be cool to put the JAKEe logo on the hood.

Since I am an advanced graphic artist, I decided to use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to custom paint the car. I did this because I was extremely curious to see what my next actual car is going to look like. According to Chevy will start producing convertible Camaro's in January or March of 2011 and I can't wait!!!!

I think the all-new Camaro convertible is the best looking car I have ever seen, and as an American, I very happy to see American cars making a strong comeback.

I included the following video that shows how General Motors is going to have an iPhone application that allows you to use your phone as a key!!! This is so cool!!!

1986 Porsche 928 Hotness
Memories Are Made Of This

I remember back in the mid 1980s how over-the-top cool the Porsche 928 was. It is interesting that we don't see many on the road these days? The 928 was featured in many Hollywood movies, including Risky Business, Scarface, and Weird Science.

Ferrari Unveils The All-New 599 GTO: The Evolution Of A Supercar

Ferrari Unveils The All-New 599 GTO
The Evolution Of A Supercar
The Fastest Road Car In The World

Ferrari introduced the all-new Ferrari 599 today which owes its genesis to the legendary 250 GTO and 288 GTO. The Ferrari GTOs have historically been Ferrari's high-performance leaders.

The all new Ferrari 599 GTO is a rocket-ship and it accelerates from 0-60MPH in 3.2 seconds and it can reach a top speed of over 200MPH!!!

Ferrari will only be producing 599 versions of this model and it will probably sell for somewhere around a half-million dollars.

Petroleum v. Electricity...

Petroleum v. Electricity
Motor Trend Compares
Tesla Roadster v. Porsche Boxter Spyder

It is likely this is the last generation of petroleum cars and that within 10 short years, all new cars will run on electricity. In some ways this is like mechanical watches v. quartz, the only difference is that mechanical watches are not terrible for the environment.

In this head to head competition, Motor Trend put the 2010 Tesla against the 2011 Porsche Boxster Spyder and it is fascinating!!!
