Chevy reveals 2020 Corvette Stingray convertible, C8.R racer

Reinforcing the Corvette's long association with astronauts,
Although called a convertible, there is no fabric to be seen: the 2020 Corvette Stingray convertible uses a folding-hardtop design in which the center roof section folds in two pieces and stores above the rear-mounted engine. From some angles the new Corvette convertible will be difficult to distinguish from the standard Stingray coupe, even with the roof open. The giveaway is the glass rear hatch on the coupe that exposes the engine to view. The convertible does without this glass cover, but uses an upright section of glass behind the driver flanked by pronounced buttresses. The bodywork covering the engine is solid, with a rear-opening section that more closely resembles a conventional trunk.
