Title: 1st time ever
Post by ve77er on Oct 3rd, 2019 at 2:19pm
the 2020 Corvette Convertible will have for the first time a power retractable folding hardtop and list for $7500.00 more than the base C-8 coupe and if numbers are holding firm that's $59,995.00 for the 1LT Coupe and $67,495 will be the starting point for the convertible. it's supposed to store in the 2 nacelles behind the cockpit and keep all the usable storage you get with the coupe-front trunk (or frunk) and rear compartment behind the engine. I think the Convertible may just be a little noisy with the top down given the thick pane of glass that is the partition for the occupants from the engine on the coupe. time will tell, of course hardtop convertible options go back to 1956 and power retractable roofs go back to the C-6 series I believe.

There is a video on uTube showing the top going up and down. Guess it can be lifted or lowered up to 30 MPH. Pictures left me uncertain but the video . . . . I really like the look!

I wonder who will be the first forum member to see a C8 in person!

I'll see one and get to drive it, take pictures when my friend get his early next year... then hopefully I end up with his C7. He wants pics of us both getting the keys at the same time. We're thinking that just might make the Corvette Magazines. :D

You know what makes this so cool if I do get the C7 from my friend? First it would be the second Corvette I got from a preacher I knew well... which is nice as I know everything about the Corvette as they both bought theirs new. I go to events with Vic from time to time and he wants me parked next to him as I did before with 'ol red.
