    Incredible machine for certain but at this point, let's stop calling it a corvette.

    Zora .. the inventor of the corvette made a half dozen mid engine prototypes throughout the years hoping they'd go to production. He even raced a few of them. It's what the Vette was always intended to be in his vision .. mid engine. Chevy went front engine to keep down the production cost.

    I like the minimal rear wing.

    Interior seems a little cluttered.

    Nice. However, watching 80 years olds prowling my local streets at 20mph in these will be ridiculous. Every car in the lot will get dented when they try to back out of a space.

    First Corvette Stingray convertible with a hardtop roof. The Corvette's new foldaway top is made from a lightweight composite material. It's powered by six small electric motors and can fold up or down in 16 seconds while the car is driving at speeds of to 30 miles an hour. Convertible weighs less than 80 pounds more than the coupe. The new Corvette is scheduled to go into production later this year, with the convertible starting production early next year. Awesome!
