2020 Chevy Corvette Convertible pre-production

Quote:
Yes, the standard C8 comes with a removable roof, but the convertible is different. It has a roof that folds away, no fuss no muss, whereas you’ll have to manually remove the Stingray’s top then occupy some of the car’s precious cargo area to store it. At this point, Chevrolet offers no details on the convertible, and a freeze-frame of the video includes text saying it’s a preproduction model that could differ from the droptop ‘Vette you’ll eventually see at dealerships. Its arrival is another mystery, though if we look at previous Corvette reveals, the convertible could be just a few months away from its own grand unveiling.

I wasn’t sure about it at first look because it was not immediately recognizable as a Corvette with the radical changes but then again ‘62-‘63 was a radical change, ‘67-‘68 was radical along with the ‘82-‘84. It’s GM’s flagship and it’s supposed to lead, not follow. I love the bird’s eye view of it but I’m really diggin’ how the upper intake plenum looks like a spine! Final thoughts are: this is the one Zora always wanted.

I could have done without hearing that, but I'm not surprised of that angle from Govt Motors.

The camaro styling in the mow hawk look to the roof and other Camaro like styling traits like the wide rear end look and the shape of the tail lights are a plus.
