On the night of the 2020 Corvette Stingray reveal back in July, Chevrolet shared multiple press images of the new car including this rendering of the C8’s interior cockpit.
Nobody caught it at the time, but this image shows the controls for operating the Corvette Stingray’s hardtop convertible top as well as the rear window that appears to be retractable as well.
Thanks to a member named tbs156 over at the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com who finally noticed these control buttons being shown:
Have a rotating desktop of Corvette Press pics. Noticed the controls for the rear window and the convertible top are on the driver side door. Everything else in the drawing seems to be accurate so wouldn’t be surprised if this made it to production.
Also helps confirm the rear window will go up and down as desired.
We headed to the Chevrolet.com’s Next Generation Corvette page and sure enough the image has been there all along. We zoomed in so you can get a good look at the buttons:
That rear window feature is interesting and I have to imagine that it will work much like the Wind Restrictors that owners put in their cars to cut down on the blowing hair and buffeting winds inside the cockpit.
We also like the idea of dropping the window and allowing the sound of the LT2 V8 inside so we’ll have to follow up on that feature!
The 2020 Corvette Stingray convertible will be unveiled on the evening of Wednesday, October 2nd at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Center.
