So, There Will Be a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Convertible!
Chevrolet has yet to announce a mid-engined Corvette convertible, but it previewed one at the end of the C8's reveal.
Car and Driver
- Though not confirmed yet, a convertible based on the mid-engined Chevrolet C8 Corvette is almost a certainty.
- A Chevrolet representative hinted that a droptop C8 is in the works but didn't debut alongside the targa-topped coupe on July 17.
- Every generation of the Corvette has offered a convertible since 1953.
With a few exceptions, Chevrolet's Corvette has been sold as a convertible continuously since 1953. The original Vette, in fact, was only offered as a droptop—so logic holds that the new mid-engined Corvette C8 will gain a convertible variant sometime after the targa-topped coupe goes on sale late this year. Right?
The sneak reveal of the convertible jibes with our pre-reveal chats with the Corvette design and engineering teams. In those interactions, a confirmation proved elusive. The closest we got to one was a wink-wink, nod-nod sort of hint: "Stay tuned." And then Chevy went ahead and showed the car in a video at the C8 Corvette reveal event. So we know it's happening.
