An early version of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray online configurator was found by a member of a Corvette Stingray online forum yesterday. Since then, it reportedly has been taken offline and republished multiple times, apparently undergoing tweaks in the process, according to the forum member.

But all of that seems to have stabilized, and what we have access to now are two Stingray configurators - one for the coupe, the other for the convertible - sans any image of the car's exterior. The configurator obviously still isn't finished, but it works. Funky, but we'll take it.

Users are able to spec Stingrays with three option-packs (1LT, 2LT or 3LT) and the Z51 performance package, choose exterior and interior colors and pick different wheel finishes and styles, which change depending on whether the car has the Z51 option or not. Finally, shoppers are given a list of individual options from which to choose.

When you have some spare time, go try out the nearly finished configurator, and take your pick: coupe or convertible.

      Since the ongoing introduction began, Chevy has shown nothing but the Z51 versions, which includes the tacked-on spoiler across the back which very much flattens the top edge of the rear, and really changes the look. Only in an enthusiast YouTube video have I seen the rear without that spoiler, and it looks very different -- with additional slopes and angles meant to invoke the '63 Stingray, but weirdly also a bit 80s and Batman-ish (in my opinion from the image and couple of videos I have found). Here is one of the few images I have come across without the spoiler -- http://www.autoweek.com/galleryimage/CW/20130207/CARNEWS/207009992/PH/1/7/corvette-colors-velocity-yellow-rear.jpg Even that one is a Z51 -- because of the rear fender cooler vents. I have only seen two base models now without the vents and without the spoiler. Both videos have been "in the wild" videos. There's a red one in this video -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bXHIqrN-oeY Perhaps Chevy is embarrassed by the base model, and thus the delay in getting those base photos on the configurator...

          I disagree, I hate that tacked on rear spoiler, it looks miles better without it.

          See, I think I like the non-spoiler look because it's actually original. I believe the non-spoiler version should thrive, or this new design will die a longer-term death because of the boredom the flat spoiler creates in the base Stingray version, meaning the only choice is grotesquely large wings in the Z-versions. I I believe the flat-top spoiler was originally intended for the Z-versions. Not the Base Stingray. However, I'm guessing the Stingray, WITHOUT the spoiler, was deemed not able to "make a splash" in the marketplace, especially with the likes of this Nissan GT-R, and most of the "performance" 911s being shown in social media with a wing deployed. The day of an "unadorned" rear facia seems fading, if not gone. I say, be strong, and buy a 1LT version with no options. This $51,995 car (base) car will kick the ass of the majority of vehicles it encounters everyday. Don't get sucked in like a douchebag. Buy the awesome cheap Corvette, and let's keep cheap awesome Corvettes around forever. We would all like a Z06 or ZR-1, but this new version is more than you need. Buy Stingray now. I'll burn my E46 M3 IF you commit to buy all the base versions they can sell. And, I actually might get one myself. Seriously. The Base C7 is a beast. I want to drive one. Without that cool spoiler folks.

      Ha. I ran across this yesterday too, I used it to look up the price of the MR suspension. I didn't know it was brand new.

      Oh gawsh. I wish I could get through school faster to afford this car when it releases. Probably the only car I'm going to be jealous of when it releases. I live near an affluent area of town so I'm fairly certain I'll see many of these zipping around town. Oh well.

          Ouch. That GT comment refereed to the Viper though. Realistically, I don't know anybody with a Viper to lend me. Drop me a line though, and I'll give you a ride in my sports car when I'm a doctor and your still ranting on AB. Troll some more...

        Hey, it's your money but you might be better off saving some of it when you finish school and get a decent job. 60k is a whole lot of money to blow for a car.

        Corvettes are more prevalent in the retirement communities than they are the affluent areas around here.

          Well, new Vettes are not really in the price range of the young guys budget. I do however see quite a few 30 something year old guys in them around here. I get you though, I'm more used to seeing a 60 year old guy in a shiny Vettte driving 60 mph in the slow lane. Never actually seen somebody "open" one up on a highway.
