Chevrolet has confirmed the convertible version of the Corvette Stingray will make its debut on March 5 at the Geneva Motor Show.

"It's fitting to introduce the new Stingray convertible on the global stage at Geneva, because Corvette is the face of Chevrolet the world over," Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe, said recently.

"It is an icon that has long been recognised and admired even in countries where it's never officially been offered."

Currently, there are Corvette owner and enthusiast clubs in more than 100 countries. In fact, 58 per cent of the 1.1 million fans who like Corvette's official Facebook page are outside the United States.

Ever since Chevrolet took the wraps of the seventh-generation Corvette last month, there has been immense interest in when a convertible version would be unveiled with many fans saying it couldn't be a Stingray unless there was an open top car.

It seems their views got through to the company.

"Every Corvette is designed at the outset as an open car," Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer, said at the weekend.

"The new Stingray is no different, with the coupe and convertible designed to excel in any situation – be it your daily commute, a drive across the continent, or charging through twisting backroads."
