Corvette has always been convertible-first, and the 2020 Stingray carries on that heritage with a first-ever production retractable hardtop.

And performance remains high when the top goes down, making this the most track-capable Corvette convertible in history.

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.
