Over the weekend, Chevrolet released its first images of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Now, ahead of the droptop's official introduction tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, the automaker has given us a few more shots of the softop C7 showing off the car's rump albeit from a high, strategically positioned angle.

From this angle, it's hard to get a sense for how long and flat the decklid really is, but we can easily see that, like the rest of the C7's design, the new convertible's decklid and tonneau cover are far more detailed than the current car. We also get a better look at the rear haunches sans brake vents, which have apparently been moved to underneath the car in order to accommodate the top's hard cover.

As for the overall styling of the C7 convertible, with the top erected, we get some idea of what a coupe design (as opposed to the Stingray's fastback shape) would look like on this car. The C5 Corvette most recently had a coupe model that did away with the large glass hatchback, and we recently reported on a low-cost "coupe" model potentially being added to the C7's repertoire.

For that, as well as official details and specs for the 2014 Corvette Convertible, we'll all have to wait until tomorrow, but we'll be sure to bring you all the information and plenty of live images straight from the show floor.

      I like it... I may buy a used one in a few years when my piggy bank and boss (wife) says I can.

          The FRS is a rebadged Subaru. You can't really be that stupid.

          @ BD - They designed the exterior styling. That's all. Subaru did all chassis/powertrain/everything else design and engineering.

        I guess I like my cars tacky and overwrought then, because I love the new Stingray!! Does that mean my Lexus SC (Toyota Soarer) is tacky and overwrought too?

          Here's a hint on how to recognize the latter: they are often seeking negative attention.

        Yeah, says the jealous Toyota fanboy!! Everything looks "overwrought and tacky" next to your Prius. I suspect you hate the car because it's not a Toyota, and are jealous because Toyota doesn't build anything that can compete with it.

          Well, there's the LFA, but it also costs 5x as much.

        Well GM will worry about what you think when you\'re ready to trade in that 2003 Corrolla you drive...

        And gold wheels aren't tacky on a corvette?

      Soft-top convertibles should be banned.

      A smaller lighter Corvette coupe could work. This is my idea for a twin-turbo V6 Vette with shorter hood and wheelbase for lighter weight: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-pygZ_ituZHI/UTDTxlz2VRI/AAAAAAAAIgM/LYzn9BUrLr4/s1600/Corvette_V6_basemodel_1250px.jpg

        Yeah because the current Corvette is such a behemoth. /s A V6? Why? Given the LS motors' light weight , size, durability, and power, I don't see how this car would benefit any more from having a V6. Let's put it this way. I think it's safe to say that more people are swapping out their V6s, 4-bangers, and rotaries for Corvette motors than the other way around.

        I bet it's pretty hard to get excited about any kind of car when you're sitting in a penitentiary. Isn't it, Bubba?

      How many times do we need a \"new\" Vette article per week? On another note, I was watching a show about lottery winners and the first thing that a KY winner did with his winings was buy a Vette. Insert stereotype here.

      Should have gone with a convertible hard top like almost every other manufacturer is doing

      I've really come around to the new corvette, but the one thing that really bugs me is the dinky plastic spoiler on the back. It just looks awful and more like an afterthought then anything else. I can only imagine the panel gaps around that spoiler as well.. just screams low quality to me and flimsy plastic. Wish it was only a option.

        It IS only an option, only on the Z51 model. The standard Stingray will not have the spoiler.

      The sad taillights do look a little bit better on a dark car. Maybe they are going for the Winona Rider in black eyeliner theme.
