2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible Officially Announced for Geneva
Together with this simple teaser sketch, Chevrolet told us that the new Stingray Convertible will give us "the same balance of technology, design and performance introduced on the coupe earlier in January in Detroit."
The American carmaker believes the Corvette to be at the core of its identity, the perfect car to show in Switzerland as GM tried to increase the visibly and sales of both Cadillac and Chevrolet in Europe.
"It's fitting to introduce the new Stingray convertible on the global stage at Geneva, because Corvette is the face of Chevrolet the world over. It is an icon that has long been recognised and admired even in countries where it's never officially been offered," said Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe.
Understandably, GM wants to keep the C7 Convertible a secret right up until the last moment when it's shown in Geneva. Unfortunately for them, we already have leaked photos of the car, which now seem increasingly authentic.
"Every Corvette is designed at the outset as an open car," said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. "The new Stingray is no different, with the coupe and convertible designed to excel in any situation – be it your daily commute, a drive across the continent, or charging through twisting back roads."
