The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible price has been revealed. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible has dropped its top.
Chevrolet debuted its convertible version of the forthcoming mid-engine sports car Wednesday night at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL, a location meant to remember the days when astronauts with “The Right Stuff” cruising around nearby Cocoa Beach in their Corvettes.
It’s the first Corvette convertible to have a folding hardtop, which stores under a lid that also covers the engine bay. A retractable rear window, mounted between polished nacelles that stretch back from behind the passengers’ heads, can be opened or closed independent of the roof.
Chevrolet revealed this eighth-generation Corvette was engineered from the beginning with a convertible in mind, so its chassis is structured similar to the coupe. The convertible gets a few adjustments to its suspension and has the same aerodynamic driving ability as the coupe when their roofs are closed, with the coupe featuring a manually removable Targa-style roof panel.
Chevrolet hasn’t said what the difference in weight is, but both cars use the same 6.2L V8, with up to 495 HP, and the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that comes with it.
The convertible keeps a trunk behind the engine that is large enough to fit two golf bags, as well as a second area in the nose of the car. Pricing starts at $67,495, which is a $7,500 premium over the coupe, and deliveries are set to begin in the first quarter of 2020.
