Chevrolet Introduces First Hardtop Corvette Convertible

2020 Stingray convertible offers the same storage as coupe, even with the top down

2019-10-02


CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Open-air driving has always been a part of the Chevrolet Corvette’s heritage. In fact, when the Corvette debuted in 1953, it was available only as a convertible. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible builds off that heritage as the first hardtop and mid-engine convertible in Corvette history.

“We put the world on notice when we introduced the first mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette a few months ago, and now we’re raising the bar with the first-ever hardtop Corvette convertible,” said Brian Sweeney, Chevrolet U.S. vice president. “And the convertible will be priced only $7,500 more than entry 1LT Stingray coupe.”

First and foremost, a convertible

The mid-engine 2020 Corvette Stingray was engineered first and foremost as a convertible. The convertible maintains the tunnel-dominant structure and use of high-integrity die-cast parts found in the Stingray coupe.

The team engineered the hardtop to stow seamlessly into the body, maintaining the Stingray’s impressive ability to store two sets of golf clubs in the trunk even with the top down. The convertible also keeps the coupe’s front storage compartment, which can fit an airline-spec carry-on and a laptop bag.

The hardtop provides a quieter cabin, increased security and a cleaner look compared to the previous softtop designs.

“Our goal from the beginning was to make sure customers didn’t have to sacrifice any functionality, performance or comfort when choosing the hardtop convertible,” said Josh Holder, Corvette program engineering manager. “We managed to keep the same design theme as the coupe, as well as the exceptional storage capacity and track capability.”

Inspired by jets

Like the coupe, the Stingray convertible’s design was inspired by fighter jets. The tonneau cover features aerodynamically shaped nacelles influenced by the housing used for jet engines. The nacelles, which were also used as inspiration on the Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle (CERV) I and II, as well as the Corvette SS and SR2 concepts, help reduce air recirculation into the cabin and provide a remarkably exotic profile with the top up or down. The tonneau also provides a rear power-adjustable window and a vent for mid-engine cooling.

The two-piece top can be activated at speeds up to 30 mph and retract in as few as 16 seconds. It is powered by six electric motors — a Corvette first — and uses encoders for precise control. Switching to electric motors from hydraulic systems helps increase reliability. A body-colored roof is standard, while Carbon Flash metallic-painted nacelles and roof are optional.

Careful attention was paid to make sure the engine could breathe when stored underneath the tonneau cover. The sheet-molded composite top stows in a compartment made from lightweight composite panels and heat shields to manage heat from the engine.

A divider glass window in the middle of the vehicle can be power adjusted with the top up or down. The glass has been optimized to reduce air recirculation and wind noise in the cabin for improved quietness. The roof system design, combined with the same rear spoiler used on the Stingray coupe’s Z51 Performance Package, results in identical drag between the coupe and convertible with the top up.

Engineers tweaked the chassis for the convertible, with springs and dampers tuned specifically to provide nearly the same performance as the coupe.

No compromise performance

Like the Stingray coupe, the convertible is powered by the next-generation 6.2L Small Block V-8 LT2 engine, the only naturally aspirated V-8 in the segment. It will produce 495 horsepower (369 kW) and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque when equipped with performance exhaust — the most horsepower and torque for any entry Corvette.

The LT2 is paired with Chevrolet’s first eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, which provides lightning-fast shifts and excellent power transfer. This transmission is uniquely designed to provide the best of both worlds: the spirited, directly connected feeling of a manual and the premium driving comfort of an automatic. The double-paddle de-clutch feature even allows the driver to disconnect the clutch by holding both paddles for more manual control.

When combined, the advanced propulsion system, revised chassis tuning and retractable hardtop make the 2020 Stingray the most no-compromise Corvette convertible in history.

Build and price tool now available

Interested Stingray shoppers can now build and price their own Corvette coupe or convertible on the 2020 Corvette visualizer at Chevrolet.com.

A dedicated Chevrolet Corvette Concierge team will provide 2020 Corvette customers with answers about the vehicle discovery, buying and ownership process. The team can be reached by calling 866-424-3892. Customers can also live chat with a Corvette Concierge by visiting Chevrolet.com. The team is available from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. EDT Mondays through Fridays.

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray coupe goes into production at GM’s Bowling Green Assembly in late 2019, with the convertible following in late first-quarter 2020. A right-hand drive version of the convertible will be available in select international markets at a later date.

If you wanted to buy a Corvette in the late '90s, you had some options. There were three body styles to choose from: a fixed-head coupe, a hatchback with a removable roof, and a soft-top convertible. The original owner of this Corvette didn't like any of those, so they decided to go the custom route instead, installing an aftermarket power-folding hard top. The car is for sale right now on Craigslist.

Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.

This car started out as a factory soft-top variant before being sent to Drop Top Customs, a shop in Florida that specializes in fabricating custom removable roofs, for the conversion. The panels are paint-matched to the car, and according to the seller, the mechanism works flawlessly. When the top is up, it looks like a C5 fixed-head coupe. When it's down, it looks like a normal C5 soft top convertible. If you didn't know any better, you'd think this was factory.

According to the seller, this Corvette is one of just 60 factory C5 convertibles painted in Fairway Green. It also sports chrome five-spoke wheels, an automatic transmission, and a Bose sound system. The odometer shows just 48,000 miles.

The car is currently listed on Craigslist in Minneapolis with an asking price of $26,000. That's a bit on the high end for an automatic '98 Corvette, but once you factory in the cost for the custom roof—around $18,000, according to the seller—the price starts to make some amount of sense.

TESTED

Dream for a moment: Would you like a lighter and cheaper version of the Corvette? Chevy now has one, a new fixed-roof hardtop model that comes equipped just one way—with a six-speed manual transmission and the firmer K51 suspension. We estimate it will cost $37,500, which is about $2400 less than a similarly equipped '99 hatchback.

The new model doesn't have the hatchback' s standard power driver's seat, and it doesn't have a choice of options such as the F45 adjustable suspension, the dual-zone air conditioning, or the new-for-'99 power-telescoping steering wheel and so-called head-up instrument display. And you can't remove the roof.

KERIAN

But is this new hardtop the "club sport” corvette of your autocross-driving 'dreams?

The hardtop is 79 pounds lighter than a comparably equipped '99 hatchback coupe, due to the elimination of the heavy glass hatch and removable roof panel, which are replaced by a fixed fiberglass roof with a much smaller rear window.

The diet makes the 345-hp hardtop quicker than the identically powered coupe. Our hardtop zipped to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds; the last three C5 coupes we've tested aver­aged 4.9 seconds to 60 mph. The hardtop turned the quarter-mile in 13.2 seconds at 110 mph; our '98 hatchbacks averaged 13.3 seconds at 109 mph.

Despite the hardtop's improved accel­eration numbers, Chevy says it is not as aerodynamic as the coupe—the steeper slope of the hardtop's rear window creates some drag-inducing turbulence. Our tests confirmed that: Flat out, the hardtop hit 169 mph, whereas our most recent slant-backed coupe went 171 mph and earlier editions made it to 175 mph.

The hardtop is the first fixed-roof Corvette since the 1963-67 Sting Ray coupe. When the C5 was being developed three years ago, Chevy asked chief engi­neer Dave Hill to figure a way to make a cheaper Corvette. At the time, the factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky, wasn't selling all the Corvettes it could make. Hill says he looked at a C5 coupe's one-by-four-inch-thick tubular steel roll hoop and imagined it fastened to the body of a con­vertible, covered by a lighter but stronger fixed panel without the heavy glass of the hatchback.

Originally, the hardtop was to be a stripper that would put a Corvette in at least double the number of driveways it occupied at the time, if not on every Amer­ican block. So prototypes were built with cloth-covered, manually operated seats; smaller 17-inch tires front and back; and a few other cost-saving tricks by Chevy. For example, these prototypes were built with the less-expensive four-speed auto­matic transmission (about 60 percent of Corvettes are sold with automatics). In these prototypes, the cost cutters also left out the electronically variable shock-damping system, the traction control, and the brake-controlled active-handling stability system.

Chevy says customers who saw the prototype strippers were almost unani­mously turned off by the budget Vettes. Meanwhile, Corvette sales have boomed. So the company restored the stability system (optional) and leather seats (stan­dard) and put back the 18-inch rear tires that are standard equipment on coupe and convertible Corvettes. The automatic transmission was dropped, and the six-speed manual gearbox, normally an $815 option, was added at no cost, as was the $350 Z51 suspension package. This pro­totype the customers liked. "This is not a stripper," adds Hill.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the c 5 corvette a removable hardtop?

Smooth Line offers two different Hardtops for the C-5, a Small Window model which features a convertible sized rear window or a Big Window model which features a 50% larger rear window. Other than that, they are identical. Our Removable Hardtop, which was introduced in 2001, accentuates the GM Z06 "double bubble" roof silhouette.

Can a convertible top be removed from a corvette?

Simply lower the convertible top in the normal position (the convertible top is not removed) and latch the Hardtop in place. Now you can experience the full potential of your Corvette on the street, strip or track.

When did the c5 corvette become a convertible?

Originally, the C5 Corvette was only available in a coupe model. The convertible option became available one year later in 1998. In 1999, a third body style, the hardtop, became part of the C5 line up. Corvette Salvage offers a wide variety of C5 Corvette Parts and Accessories. To begin browsing our online catalog, select a year below.

When did corvettes start to have hard tops?

Due to the hard top not becoming an option until the 1989 model year, there are a couple items that need changed on 1986-1988 convertibles cars themselves in order for them to fit a hard top correctly. These items are shown below and are described within the video above.

Corvettes on Craigslist: 1998 Fairway Green C5 Convertible with a Power Hard Top


We told you just a few days ago about a rare Fairway Green C5 Corvette for sale for less than $10,000 in Florida.

Now we’ve found another one that’s even more rare, and a reader alerted us to a third example for sale as well.

First, a little background.

Corvettes on Craigslist: 1998 Fairway Green C5 Convertible with a Power Hard Top


Only 155 Fairway Green Corvettes were made in 1997 – all coupes since all 9,752 examples of the first-year C5 left Bowling Green that way, and another 223 were made the following year in a mix of coupes and convertibles.

Now we’ve found one of those 60 convertibles made in Fairway Green currently for sale, but this one took an unusual twist after leaving the factory.

It has a super cool retractable hardtop commissioned by the original owner at Drop Top Customs.

Corvettes on Craigslist: 1998 Fairway Green C5 Convertible with a Power Hard Top
Corvettes on Craigslist: 1998 Fairway Green C5 Convertible with a Power Hard Top
Corvettes on Craigslist: 1998 Fairway Green C5 Convertible with a Power Hard Top
Corvettes on Craigslist: 1998 Fairway Green C5 Convertible with a Power Hard Top


If you’re worried about the reliability of the system (which is said to cost $18,000 now to install), the craigslist ad reassuringly says Drop Top Customs has been in business for more than 30 years and furthermore the top on this car is said to operate flawlessly and is a perfect paint match to boot.

The seller is asking $26,000 for this rare C5, which is said to have “outstanding” paint, chrome wheels, and “newer” tires and has been driven less than 49,000 miles.

If you’re in the market for a Fairway Green convertible, this sounds like your opportunity. We especially like the lines that the hardtop gives to the C5, and it’s really neat the way the top retracts into a bin behind the seats.

Corvettes on Craigslist: 1998 Fairway Green C5 Convertible with a Power Hard Top


For those on a tighter budget, a reader tells us about a 1997 coupe done in Fairway Green that has the rare 6-speed manual transmission and a light gray interior with a new driver’s seat that only needs “minor work” to be finished, all for just $10,500.

The seller notes that the car has a “few minor scratches and the like,” but “still looks great.”

1997 Corvette Coupe in Fairway Green


The car has just over 57,000 miles on the odometer, and a new air conditioning compressor has been installed. With high summer days upon us, it’s good to know the system puts out “ice cold air” according to the sellers.

While the car is described as needing “minor work” overall, it’s “nothing that would keep you from driving it.” It should have one or both of the mufflers replaced “if we don’t get to it first,” says the seller, Tracy Performance out of Roseville, Michigan.

1997 Corvette Coupe in Fairway Green


Of course, the first Fairway Green we told you about was a 1997 coupe that had a little bit more wear and tear with 110,000 miles, but not really bad for a 22-year-old car.

Plus it also had the 6-speed manual transmission and the owner noted that it is “a blast to drive.”

Best of all for the asking price of $9,500, a new owner could afford to address some of the issues noted by the seller.

Description

#1 Performance Option

The #1 performance option is designed for action. Change your wind-in-the-hair boulevard cruiser into a super coupe in minutes. Simply lower the convertible top in the normal position (the convertible top is not removed) and latch the Hardtop in place. Now you can experience the full potential of your Corvette on the street, strip or track.

When the weather is fair and the top is down nothing beats the joy of driving an Corvette convertible! However, when the top is up, it's not so great. If the weather is too hot, too cold, too wet or if you are on a long drive on the freeway, you just can't beat a Smooth Line Hardtop. Now you can have the best of both worlds!

Don't let a bad looking, leaking convertible top de-value your car! Mold starts and the rust begins! STOP the hassles. Bring back the pride and joy of ownership. Protect your investment with a life time solution. 

                                                Install a Smooth Line Hardtop now!

                                              The last top you will ever have to buy."

Adding a Smooth Line Hardtop is one of the best styling and practical improvements that can be made to your Corvette. Coming or going, our custom designed Hardtop will give an exciting, clean, sleek appearance to your Corvette while protecting you from unwanted noise and weather.

Smooth Line offers two different Hardtops for the C-5, a Small Window model which features a convertible sized rear window or a Big Window model which features a 50% larger rear window. Other than that, they are identical.

Our Removable Hardtop, which was introduced in 2001, accentuates the GM Z06 "double bubble" roof silhouette. This exciting Smooth Line design also features a curved, flush mounted, rear window for a very sleek and low look. From any angle, our Hardtop will give your Corvette a very aggressive stance that will definitely make heads turn! If you want the "Bad Boy" Z06 look, this is it!

The interior is upholstered in a thick OEM felt automotive headliner material that will compliment the interior of your car. This headliner significantly absorbs road noises and also is an excellent insulator against heat or cold. Now you will be able to have normal conversation or really enjoy your favorite music on your stereo. Great on long drives!

Our rain guards will help keep your seats dry when the door is opened. This new Hardtop is complete with thick rubber moldings to ensure a weather tight seal. When your Corvette is parked, or in storage, a Smooth Line Hardtop also adds additional security for the car and personal items.

All Smooth Line Hardtops are made in the USA by American craftsmen. Quality is an absolute! All production is done in house to insure high standards. The shell is a premium grade automotive fiberglass composite which is very strong but light weight. The upgraded (extra cost) primed exterior is factory finished to perfection with two coats of smooth black urethane primer ready for a top coat color of your choice. For the best color match, we recommend using a local high quality auto body paint shop that can computer scan your Corvette to match the paint. Other upgraded exterior finishes available. See below

Every Smooth Line Hardtop is custom made to order by our expert trained craftsman, one at a time, and are assigned a unique serial number. We now have a TEN-year Limited Warranty against defects in workmanship or materials.

The Smooth Line Corvette Hardtop is complete with headliner, rear window, seals & mounting hardware. Nothing extra to buy!

WTB: C4 Convertible Removable Hardtop Corvette Forum

5 hours ago Dr. Pirateface. I'm inheriting a C4 from an uncle. It's an '87 (?) with a 4+3 and a soft top. The cloth is in bad shape and I suspect even the convertible frame needs replacement. Rather than spend the time and money, since I will be using this car for track/hillclimb/autocross duty, I'd prefer to use a removable hardtop.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the C-5 corvette a removable hardtop?

Smooth Line offers two different Hardtops for the C-5, a Small Window model which features a convertible sized rear window or a Big Window model which features a 50% larger rear window. Other than that, they are identical. Our Removable Hardtop, which was introduced in 2001, accentuates the GM Z06 "double bubble" roof silhouette.

Can a convertible top be removed from a corvette?

Simply lower the convertible top in the normal position (the convertible top is not removed) and latch the Hardtop in place. Now you can experience the full potential of your Corvette on the street, strip or track.

When did the C5 Corvette become a convertible?

Originally, the C5 Corvette was only available in a coupe model. The convertible option became available one year later in 1998. In 1999, a third body style, the hardtop, became part of the C5 line up. Corvette Salvage offers a wide variety of C5 Corvette Parts and Accessories. To begin browsing our online catalog, select a year below.

When did corvettes start to have hard tops?

Due to the hard top not becoming an option until the 1989 model year, there are a couple items that need changed on 1986-1988 convertibles cars themselves in order for them to fit a hard top correctly. These items are shown below and are described within the video above.
