Word came today that Toyota has decided to spare the Camry Solara from the guillotine — at least for one more model year. It had been widely speculated that after the Camry sedan was redesigned for 2007, the Solara would be canceled.

The Solara is, however, Toyota’s only convertible, so the automaker has made a rational decision to stay in the segment. The Solara was last redesigned for 2004, and it’s based on a nearly 7-year-old platform. Without a major redesign coming soon, Toyota’s convertible is at risk of becoming uncompetitive — even against the poorly crafted Chrysler Sebring and Pontiac G6.

There’s no information on the 2009 Solara’s on-sale date, specifications or pricing, but we’ll keep you informed as more information arrives.
