2020 Mid-Engined Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Also Happening

Everyone’s attention was turned to the new 2020 Corvette Stingray coupe on Thursday, but Chevrolet also gave a bit of info on its new mid-engined convertible Corvette.

Yes, there will be a 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 convertible and it’s happening sooner than we think. At the end of its presentation on the new C8 Corvette Chevrolet gave an overview of other Corvette variations in the works including the Corvette Stingray convertible.

As with the current Chevrolet Corvette, the base Stingray in the mid-engined C8 generation has a removable top making it a targa essentially. That said, the current Corvette generation has a true convertible model and the C8 lineup won’t be any different.

Chevrolet has said very little about the Chevrolet Corvette C8 convertible, but we don’t expect to have to wait too long to get our first look at it. If previous generations of the Corvette are any indication, expect to see it in the next few months with deliveries starting next spring.

Power will come from a 6.2-liter V8 generating 490 horsepower (495 horsepower with the optional Z51 Performance Package) paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic. There’s no more manual availability in the Corvette Stingray, much less in the convertible. Unfortunate, but understandable. Because the hard-top Stingray isn’t getting that much of a price hike over the previous generation, we expect the new mid-engined Chevrolet Corvette C8 convertible to start at around $70k in the U.S. and $80,000 in Canada.

More details on the C8 Corvette convertible are surely coming. For now, all we know is that it will happen.
