The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is set to officially debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The coupe was seen at the recently held Detroit Auto Show. Chevrolet representatives have confirmed online reports that suggested that the topless Corvette will debut at the Geneva show in March. It didn’t come as any surprise that Chevrolet will offer a convertible version of its seventh-generation Corvette.
The timing is also predictable. In 2004, Chevrolet launched the sixth-generation Corvette. The coupe was first presented in January at the Detroit auto show while the convertible came out a few months later at the Geneva. A camouflaged Corvette convertible had been spied earlier. No other details about the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette convertible were divulged by the officials.
But it’s likely to be similar to the renderings leaked online. Most probably, it will be powered by the same 450-hp, 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine, with a choice between a seven-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette will start production in Bowling Green, Kentucky, this fall. It’s not yet known if the coupe and convertibles will arrive at dealerships simultaneously. It’s likely that the droptop will arrive at showrooms a few months after the hardtop model so it will probably not be in early 2014.
