The latest iteration of the all-new eighth-generation Corvette features a power-folding retractable hardtop, the first in the near 70-year history of Chevrolet’s 2-seat sports car. The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible is two cars in one — an open-air roadster for the perfect drive on the perfect day and a quiet, secure hardtop the rest of the time. It joins the existing Coupe model and reestablishes the 2-seater’s link to its wind-in-the-hair roadster heritage dating back to the very first 1953 model. Depending on the trim, the new convertible is a $7,000 or $7,500 upcharge over the Coupe.
Including the $1,095 destination charge, the 2021 Corvette Stingray Convertible lineup consists of $67,495 1LT, $74,295 2LT and $78,945 3LT trims. The optional Z51 package, which includes a low-restriction, dual-mode exhaust, larger brakes, performance-tuned suspension, a shorter final-drive ratio, summer tires, an electronic limited-slip differential, a heavy-duty cooling system, and a rear spoiler, is $5,000 extra.
The primary competitor to the new Corvette Convertible is the Porsche 911 Cabrio.
