Where form meets function

Chevrolet has officially unveiled the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. However, Chevy hasn’t provided any further details other than these two photos. Here’s what we’ve learned so far, the example seen in these images is fitted with the optional Z51 Performance Package. In order to accommodate the power folding hard tonneau cover, the vents that feed the transmission and differential coolers have been relocated to the underside of the car.

The dark paint color on this example also does a good job of muting the contrasting black front fender vents and hood opening – Z51-spec design details that have proven to be somewhat controversial. These two shots also display the Stingray sporting different alloy wheels than the split five-spoke design. The simpler, thin five-spoke wheels should do a good job of showing off the Z51’s upgraded brakes, and they’ll be optional on the coupe as well.
