While coupes in general have advantages as performance cars - and the Corvette is foremost a performance car - the Corvette has a solid history as a convertible. With the exception of 1976 thru 1985 and 1997, a convertible has always been part of the Corvette story.

Corvettes have always looked good with their tops up and the C7 continues that tradition and carries itself well should weather conditions require it. There has not been a removable hardtop announced by GM; the last official offering was in 1996 at the end of the C4 production. Soundproofing is enabled by a thick, three-ply fabric top.

The folding top mechanism for the convertible did not allow for rear fender brake air intake vents (left) that are available on the coupe (right). The implication is that brake cooling problems could arrise at track days for convertibles; another area where coupes have an advantage as performance cars.
