2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible [w/video]

About 20 seconds, and 30 miles per hour. These are, if not the most heart-thumping statistics you need to know before continuing to read the rest of this review, the most pertinent to get out of the way. What are they? The amount of time it takes, according to our stopwatches, for the power-operated fabric roof to hide itself entirely inside the bodywork of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible, and the maximum speed at which that action can be performed. Because, of course, when piloting a brand-new Chevy Corvette Convertible for the very first time, there is absolutely no... Read More

    Spy photographers usually try to focus their lenses on test mules and prototypes, but this week, a camera-toting sleuth stumbled upon some filming for Transformers 4 on location at a General Motors proving grounds facility in Michigan.

    Spy Shots: See what the Chevy C7 ZR1 may be benchmarked against
    1367940420

    One of the greatest things every Corvette has had going for it, and also one of the most re-used arguments against it, is its price-to-performance equation - long before the Nissan GT-R became the de facto Porsche 911 comparator the Corvette spent decades as Exhibit A. Depending on which side of the argument you stressed, supporters crowed about how much ...

    Although the C7 Corvette may have gotten snubbed at this year's Super Bowl, it looks like the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be front and center for some of the brightest lights in automotive racing. These spy shots show Chevrolet engineers testing a Stingray coupe with safety lights added to the front and rear of the car as we normally see on a ...

    When are stripes more than just stripes? Follow up question: Is the product development team at Chevrolet really cocky enough to hide the next C7 Corvette variant in plain sight? This very recently spotted, and ostensibly obscured C7 asks a lot more questions than it answers, but there's at least some evidence to support that it might be the next Corvette ...

    For the first time ever, we've gotten a look at the convertible version of the upcoming C7 Chevrolet Corvette. The new Corvette was spotted while testing on public roads – seemingly in Michigan – with both a C7 coupe and a Porsche 911 as chase cars. The new convertible is quite obviously carrying on with the softtop of its predecessors; and ...

    We've seen the new C7 Corvette performing some cold-weather tests, had sneak peeks of digital body parts and even watched speculative animated video. Thanks to our hard-working spy photographers that chased down this group of Corvette test mules, we can see most of these reports were on the right track.

    The Corvette is the very definition of a halo car, and the fact that 2013 marks its sixtieth year in production is nothing short of a miracle. The seventh-generation Corvette is still a model year away, during which time Chevy plans to send off the C6 with a special edition 60th Anniversary 427 Convertible. Development of the C7, however, continues at ...

The picture above is that concept, and according to speculation it is getting some paint work ...
