Would you be happy if they offered a optional removable hardtop like they had in the early years?

I would prefer a regular hard top. I would have to see the removable in person to really judge it though....



EDIT: Not quite the open feel of a true convertible but I would settle for the removable top. Seems to be a decent compromise.

Just looking at that pic, I don't know how you could make a hard-top OR a soft-top convertible and still attempt to remain true to the coupe's body lines...

It looks good with the top down from the other photos, but with the top up... no thanks. I prefer the targa top shown above.

I agree. It's the best of both worlds.

Plus the girl won't allow me to purchase a vert....now I can rub this in her eye.

Those spy pictures are not new ones, I have seen them before..but I do think they are the latest.
The renderings I have seen I read came from the Miasto Diecast Website...They must have gotten them from GM to produce a Diecast Corvette Convertible.

Never been a convertible person, but that's a damn fine car right there.
