It’s been since the 1980’s where different seat options were offered for the Corvette. That trend stops now, as the 2014 Corvette Stingray is finally making its Competition Sport seat available to compliment the standard Grand Touring seat.
The contours of the back bolsters measure 35-mm deeper than those in the 997 generation Porsche Carrera S, making them approximately 35 percent deeper for more lateral support, ideal when making hairpin turns. The Corvette team also re-engineered the seat’s side airbag, moving it outside of the seat bolster to an attached but separate pod. Chevrolet says that by doing so, the seat could be slimmer, stiffer and more supportive.
