The first official look at the new Chevrolet "C7" Corvette Convertible.

It was the star of the hometown car show but now General Motors hopes to prove its new, seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette has international appeal as it drops the top on the so-called “C7” by introducing the convertible edition at the coming week’s Geneva Motor Show.

Though a few hazy “spy shots” have surfaced in recent weeks, these are the first official images of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible and they reveal that GM designers and engineers went to great lengths to maintain the striking shape of the coupe that was first introduced in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Indeed, in a conversation with, Tadge Juechter, the chief engineer on the C7 Corvette program stressed that it “was designed with the convertible in mind.” That’s unlike the way GM and many other automakers have traditionally approached the development of a ragtop.


First Look: Chevrolet Cruze Wagon

Don’t you wish you could get one?

Chevrolet will introduce the new Cruze wagon in Geneva next month.

For automotive journalists it can be frustrating when a news release comes across the digital transom revealing details of an intriguing new product entering some exotic foreign market and never destined for U.S. showrooms.

It’s all the more disappointing when that product shares a familiar nameplate – like the Chevrolet Cruze wagon, shown here, that shares its underpinnings with the Cruze sedan we see all over the country.  For now, however, the Cruze wagon – which will make its debut, next month, at the Geneva Motor Show – won’t join the four-door in U.S. showrooms.

That’s a shame because, if images are to be believed, the new wagon is not just a pleasantly functional alternative to the current U.S. package but also a strikingly handsome one, with a look that appears notably more up-market.
