There were whispers of the Corvette Convertible before, but now Chevrolet has officially announced that the new Corvette Convertible will makes its world debut on March 5 at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

The new Corvette Convertible will be standing shoulder-to-shoulder with some impressive European vehicles set to debut in Geneva, like the Alfa Romeo 4C as well as the latest models from Lamborghini and Ferrari.

“It’s fitting to introduce the new Stingray convertible on the global stage at Geneva because Corvette is the face of Chevrolet the world over,” said Susan Docherty, of Chevrolet Europe. “It is an icon that has long been recognized and admired even in countries where it’s never officially been offered.”

Expect the car to look similar to the coupe that was shown off in Detroit.

“Every Corvette is designed at the outset as an open car,” said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. “The new Stingray is no different, with the coupe and convertible designed to excel in any situation – be it your daily commute, a drive across the continent, or charging through twisting back roads.”

Chevrolet also announced that the first Corvette Convertible will be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach to benefit the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute.
