New Corvette convertible confirmed for Geneva debut
DETROIT -- General Motors confirmed that the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible will make its world debut at the Geneva auto show on March 5.
This will be the third time a Corvette makes a world debut at the Geneva show. The 2005 Corvette convertible and the 1989 Corvette ZR-1 were unveiled in Geneva.
Chevrolet said the Corvette Stingray convertible will deliver the same balance of technology, design and performance introduced on the coupe at last month's Detroit auto show.
"It's fitting to introduce the new Stingray convertible on the global stage at Geneva because Corvette is the face of Chevrolet the world over," Susan Docherty, Chevrolet Europe president, said in a statement.
The Corvette Stingray convertible is expected to go into production late this year as a 2014 model and could reach dealer showrooms by December, trailing the launch of coupe production by about three months.
