We always like to mention when the latest Corvette model goes live on Chevrolet’s website and according to our friend CorvetteConti.com, General Motors flipped the switch on Corvette.com late last month to showcase the 2013 models which include the new 427 Convertible as well as the equally awesome 60th Anniversary package.
In the past, GM would leave the previous model year Corvette on the website to help sell the remaining inventory. Last year’s 2012 Corvettes hit the dealer showrooms over the summer, but it wasn’t until mid-October that they were posted on Chevrolet’s official Corvette website.
But 2013 is a little different as the production year will be truncated as the Bowling Green assembly plant retools to build the new 2014 C7 Corvette next year. So, the new models are up earlier this year for everyone to see.
To support the 427 Convertible and the 60th Anniversary packages, Chevrolet has also released a new round of photography. Here you’ll see a Torch Red 427 Convertible with the Heritage package as well as a 427 Convertible outfitted in Arctic White/Blue 60th Anniversary colors.
The website has a configurator to allow prospective buyers to build their own and its great fun for dreamers as well. I just built a 3LT Torch Red Grand Sport Convertible with the Heritage package, red brake calipers and red stitching on a black interior and at each point was able to virtually see the selected option on my car. Now I just have to get the wife on board and we’ll be styling this summer in a new Corvette! Like I said, it’s great for dreamers too!
