Link says it might be a convertible hard top. That would be awesome. Also, notice tehre is no vents on teh rear fender so it's not a Z51...

Call me crazy, but the rear end overall design and dimensions suddenly make sense with that flat rear deck. It works in a way that didn't work for me when looking at it with the back glass sloping up from it.

Looks good. I'm not a fan of convertibles but that has a good look to it. And no stupid stingray emblem.......

I thought there was no way the C7 would look good as a convertible. This just proved me wrong. Stunning!!

Couldn't we get to the same spot just by photoshopping out the roof of the coupe which was already shown to the world? Just not seeing how this really amounts to a "leak" even if it is a photo of the convertible.

Not better than the coupe at all IMO, but I generally don't like convertibles.

Couple more views at http://www.corvette7.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21

I'm floored by how good that looks.
This takes on the best exotic Spyders Europe has to offer IMO.

Is the non-Z51 (assuming this is it) any narrower than the Z51 or are they the same width?

I'm not sure these are real pics as the rear spoiler has no brake light in it at all. The seats also look a bit fakey from the front...it could be a render.
