While coupes in general have advantages as performance cars - and the Corvette is foremost a performance car - the Corvette has a solid history as a convertible. With the exception of the 1976 thru 1985 and 1997 model years, a convertible has always been part of the Corvette story.

The Corvette Stingray convertible features an all-new, fully electronic top that can be lowered remotely using the key fob. The top can also be opened or closed at speeds of up to 30 mph. The folding mechanism is all-new; top lowering takes 21 seconds.

There has not been a removable hardtop announced by GM; the last official offering was in 1996 at the end of the C4 production. Soundproofing is enabled by a thick, three-ply fabric top.

Right: Taking a test drive in the 2014 Corvette is Jay "Some guys have all the luck" Leno and Ed Welburn, GM Vice President of Global Design.

The folding top mechanism for the convertible did not allow for rear fender brake air intake vents (left) that are available on the coupe (right). The implication is that brake cooling problems could arrise at track days for convertibles; another area where coupes have an advantage as performance cars.
