Although the first Corvette was a convertible, its seventh generation has chosen to unveil its first variant: a coupe. But the convertible could have already been shown, if these two pictures are legit.
With its removable roof, the Corvette can seduce open-air driving lovers, even in its coupé version. But if you want more than a gentle breeze, the convertible is the best alternative. Presented at Detroit, the seventh generation of this musclecar car will not take long to propose such a variation. The guys from Auto Insider claim they even hold the first photos of the C7 Convertible, which is rather expected for New York Auto Show this spring. The author of the article is careful to add: “this is no render. No pixels were pushed” Simple buzz or assertion based? As for the recent new BMW X5 “leak”, the question remains unresolved. And commonalities with the Bavarian 4×4 also do not stop there.
According to the website Carscoop, who contacted Michael Albano, director of communications for General Motors, it could be a preview of a future miniature from the manufacturer Maisto, who will be the first to market a model the new Corvette C7 Stingray. In any case, even if these pictures are due to the talent of an illustrator, the result will be far removed from reality. The Chevrolet convertible will continue to distinguish itself from the coupe by the flat hood behind the seats, which should hide a soft top. Different front and a rear spoiler are also here to differentiate them. However, apart from a few extra pounds to maintain rigidity, no change to report engine wise: V8 6.2L 450 hp, seven-speed gearbox and mechanical aluminum structure always answer the call.
