Chevrolet will offer a cheaper version of the Corvette in 2015

Article by Christian A., on February 27, 2013

If a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a bit out of your league, you’d be happy to know that a less expensive model, possibly named the Corvette Coupe, will arrive for 2015, according to Motor Trend. The company believes that by launching a Chevrolet Corvette that’s a bit less expensive, the sports car’s appeal will intensify.

Chevrolet will take out the Stingray badges and names of the “real” Corvette that was launched in Detroit. It’s also getting an engine that has less power. Motor Trend says that there will soon be an aluminum, direct-injection 5.3-liter V-8 that’s based on an engine used on General Motors’ pickup trucks.

This offers much less than the 450 hp output of the regular Corvette’s 6.2-liter V-8. In addition, the Chevrolet Coupe will also have unique front and rear fascias and aerodynamic parts that aid in differentiating it from its costlier sibling. It’s likely to have a base price that’s lower than $50,000.

Motor Trend also reported that the Chevrolet Corvette Coupe may debut by 2015. The Corvette Stingray convertible is expected to be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. It’s also believed that both Z06 (with 600hp) and ZR1 (with 700hp) performance variants of the Corvette Stingray will be introduced.
