When the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in early January, one question still loomed at the end of the press conference: when is the convertible coming? Now, it is being reported that the drop-top version is set to debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. 

A source within General Motors confirmed to Autoweek that the Corvette convertible will be at Geneva, though the company has not offered any public word on this yet. Geneva is a show normally dominated by Italian sports cars and exotics, so it looks like Chevy is trying to make a statement bringing out its convertible ‘Vette next to the best from Maranello.

The Convertible version isn’t likely to change all that much compared to the coupe, which is powered by a V8 engine that makes 450 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough to find 60 mph in under four seconds, with help from a new rev-matching seven speed manual transmission.

The Corvette Convertible will go on sale as a 2014 model, and could be in dealerships by the end of 2013.
