The C7 Corvette continues to expand with nearly every model year. What started with a revival of the Stingray name quickly brought a Z06 and Grand Sport variant, both available as a convertible to boot.
But, here’s an interesting question we want to ask you all: should Chevrolet offer a hard top convertible variant for the Corvette? That’s today’s Community Question.
It’s an age-old scenario of pros vs. cons. Hard tops offer greater safety and noise reduction in regular operation and can sometimes give a vehicle a unique exterior design. There’s also a theft variable since hard tops are much more secure than a soft top. Breaking glass and making a scene is not something a thief desires when casing a car out.
But, they can also grace a vehicle with the ugly stick. Hard tops bring massive rear ends where the folded roof is stored. Not to mention, in a performance vehicle like the Corvette, the added weight is probably not something engineers desire. Ditto for a higher center of gravity, something we’d imagine engineers would also like to avoid with a Corvette.
