Halfway between the excellent Z51 and the hyperbolic Z06, the Grand Sport is the purist's Corvette and a future classic.
Just like it did with the coupe, Chevy has announced that it will offer the Corvette Stingray Convertible as an exclusive Premiere Edition for a lucky few customers. Limited to just 550 units, all examples of the Stingray Premiere Edition Convertible will come in Lime Rock Green with a tan top, fitted with all the goodies from the base 3LT Z51 Convertible and then some.
Almost immediately after the final C6 Corvette rolled off the line in Bowling Green, Kentucky, demolition began on the factory floor. Since then, for both the safety of the public and secrecy about the Corvette Stingray, Chevrolet has placed public tours of the plant on hold.
The 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray is shipping to dealers now, but if that's too common for you, it sounds like you'll be able to upgrade to the Callaway AeroWagon starting next year. GTSpirit is reporting that Callaway has given this car the go-ahead, and it will be available starting January 1 only in North America.
If you live in the greater Detroit area or in one of General Motors' favorite testing zones, you'd be forgiven for thinking that the C7 era is already upon us – Chevrolet Corvette Stingray coupes are thick on the ground in every color of the rainbow around here. Of course, that's just our Motor City Myopia creeping in, as the first customer deliveries from the automaker's famed Bowling Green, Kentucky facility are actually just now getting underway.
