Like the famous rival- Yankees vs Red Sox (and we all know who’s the better team), there’s the battle of the ponies- Chevy Camaro vs Ford Mustang (Technically it’s a three way battle because there’s also the Dodge Challenger. But the Challenger has had a hiatus or two.)

In 2009 Chevy released the newly designed 2010 Camaro and everyone and their mother bought one. Not one to be left out, Ford came back and unveiled the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 coupe with rave reviews at the 2011 LA Auto Show. Ford isn’t done just yet. And according to the guys at topspeed.com, Ford might be coming back with a convertible version of the 2013 Shelby GT500 and that will be unveiled at the North American Auto Show in Detroit next week.

“Changes in the exterior of the convertible GT500 will follow along the lines of the coupe with a "more modern and edgy" design, as well as new wheels and an overall improved look. Of course, the Convertible model will get a soft top for those cruising days. The GT500 debut promised a top speed of 200 mph for the Coupe model, but we highly doubt that will transfer over to the Convertible. The GT500 Convertible will be powered by a 5.8L supercharged V8 engine producing a staggering 650 HP with a quieter and more efficient TVS unit” says topspeed.com.

I guess next week will confirm or deny.
