Just when the dust has settled from the unveiling of the 2020 mid-engine Corvette, GM has us back on the edges of our seats. On October 2nd Chevrolet will debut the first ever mid-engine Corvette Convertible. Although we’ve already been teased with images of the convertible back in July, we’ve never received a full introduction to the new super-car. The reveal will take place at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Merritt Island, Florida.
Chevy made their official announcement via Twitter on Tuesday morning, showing an illustration of a coupe that turns into a convertible. If you look close enough, you’ll notice the transition from coupe to convertible makes the body slightly longer, while changing out the sloped rear window for rear-mounted ribs. The convertible also appears to have a sleek flying-buttress design behind the roll over structure and on the lid that covers the top stowage area. Rumor has it, there will be a power-retractable hard-top which would be a first for Corvette.
