New spy pictures of the upcoming mid-engine Corvette reveal that the sports car will feature a removable roof panel. Tell-tale signs of the feature are the cut lines at the top-end of the A-pillar and fore of the B-pillar.
The coupe body style of the current C7 Corvette features a removable roof panel that’s made of carbon fiber. Removing the panel enables occupants to enjoy an open-air experience without having a soft-top convertible, while the use of the exotic material is intended to decrease the center of gravity. To make things even better, one can store the roof panel in the C7’s cargo area, which features recesses for the panel to sit in place.
So, it would appear that the mid-engine Corvette will continue offering the much-appreciated feature whet it launches in the 2019 calendar year as a 2020 model year vehicle.
