One of the more useful features available on the 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible is the operation of the new top. Designers completed remade the top and its operational process, allowing the opening and closing at speeds of up to 30 mph. Drivers also have the ability to operate the top hands free with the new key fob. While at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction, we located GM’s car wrangler to get this shot of the new fob.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible’s fob shows the new convertible top button next to the trunk open button at the bottom. Like the fobs for the previous generation Corvettes, there is an emergency key inside that can be used to open the trunk or rear hatch if its a Coupe.
Also like the previous generation Corvette, the mechanical folding top requires a lot of room and therefore trunk space is tight. To also accommodate the top, the rear differential and transmission cooling vents found on the Coupe were relocated to the Convertible’s underbody. The battery is also located in the trunk but in a compartment under the storage area.
