More than 60 years of racing heritage helped set the stage for the most important debut in Corvette’s racing history tonight, as Chevy’s first mid-engine GTLM race car – the Corvette C8.R – made its surprise debut alongside the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible at the Kennedy Space Center. The C8.R and Corvette Stingray represent a true technology transfer, taking lessons from the street straight to the track and vice versa.
“The C8.R is much more than just a race-tuned version of the 2020 Corvette Stingray. It’s a culmination of many years of testing and development between GM Design, Propulsion, Engineering and the Corvette Racing team,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of Performance and Motorsports. “The collaboration between these teams has allowed us to take these vehicles’ performance to the next level, both on the street and the track.”
With its tremendous success on the track over the last 20 years, Corvette Racing has helped push the development, performance and popularity of Corvette’s top-line performance cars on race tracks across the world.
Since 1999, Corvette Racing has won 107 races – the most of any professional sports car team in North America – including 13 Team championships and 12 Driver and Manufacturer titles. In 2015, Corvette Racing became the first sports car team in 15 years win endurance racing’s Triple Crown – victories at Rolex 24 at Daytona, Twelve Hours of Sebring and 24 Hours of Le Mans – in the same season.
The C8.R No. 4 car dons a new silver livery, inspired by the color of iconic Corvette concepts such as the 1973 Chevrolet Aerovette and the 1959 Corvette Stingray Racer. This car also features yellow accents.
Complementing the No. 4 vehicle is the No. 3 car which will feature a traditional yellow color scheme with silver accents that continues the lineage of the successful GTLM racing Corvettes of the past 20 years.
The C8.R will make its racing debut at Rolex 24 at Daytona in January 2020.
The C8 Corvette Stingray convertible will have a power-folding hard top.
The convertible will enter production in late 2019, with deliveries to follow in early 2020.
The convertible will cost $7500 more than the coupe
The top folds with the help of six electric motors, can stow beneath the tonneau cover in as little as 16 seconds, and operates at speeds up to 30 mph.
The convertible will cost $7500 more than the coupe, which will keep base models below $68,000. The car will start production in late 2019, with deliveries to follow in the first quarter of 2020.
Chevy also rolled out a C8R race car and will be giving details on it later this month

The C8 convertible has arrived
Corvette has always been convertible-first, and the 2020 Stingray carries on that heritage with a first-ever production retractable hardtop. This no-compromises convertible features a top that flows seamlessly into the body while maintaining the vehicle’s impressive storage capabilities. And performance remains high when the top goes down, making this the most track-capable Corvette convertible in history.
A true performance hardtop
The two-piece hardtop can activate at speeds up to 30 mph with the power of six electric motors for improved reliability in extreme temperatures. The convertible weighs a mere 77 pounds more than coupe and the top is available in body-color or Carbon Flash.

They linked to the 2020 C8 page of their website so our guess its going to have the same engine, specs, powertrain and 1LT, 2LT, 3LT just with a drop top version and no auto glass to see the beautiful mid engine.
Also, to note Corvette convertibles in general are only about 15-20% of the overall orders for corvettes in general as discussed here in this video about the C8 and the demand.

Is a base 2021 C8 Corvette Z51 convertible the sports car you should buy?
Per YouTube Channel Raiti’s Rides the C8 Corvette is going down in history for many reasons for Chevrolet.
One the biggest reasons is how an owner can personalize it many different ways right from the factory. By going 1LT that will allow you to free up money to put towards other things like the Z51 pkg, painted top, and custom wheels.
Under the engine hatch is the 6.2L V8 that is pumping out 495HP & mated to an 8-speed DCT.
