Stingray is a perfect driving machine, born from brilliant engineering and precision performance. Its aggressively sculpted exterior is a statement of intent; its driver-oriented cockpit is a creation of purpose. Simply put, the 2017 Stingray is designed for savvy drivers who demand more from their sports cars.
The Corvette Stingray combines race-proven technology with provocative, purposeful design. Every element serves a purpose, from functional exterior vents to intelligent driver controls. Available in coupe and convertible with a host of personalization options, there’s a Stingray to satisfy any driving enthusiast.
Hood air extractor
A functional hood air extractor features precisely angled blades for optimal cooling airflow. The result is reduced lift and increased downforce, improving high-speed handling.
The available Z51 Performance Package includes dual brake ducts that direct air through the wheelwells, cooling the front brakes and reducing brake fade for optimal stopping performance.
A powertrain cooling system, adapted from Corvette Racing, guides airflow to cool two separate heat exchangers, which helps reduce temperatures during high-performance driving.
Stingray features brilliantly sculpted headlamps and tail lamps that emanate crisp, bright colour and provide optimal lighting performance.
Bi-Xenon HID headlamps achieve high and low beams with a single light engine
Edge-lit LED turn signals are framed in black chrome housing
Four-element tail lamps recede into reverse reflector for crisp, even lighting
The centre high-mounted stop lamp is mounted in the aerodynamic rear spoiler
Designed from the start to be an open-top vehicle, no additional reinforcements were required in order to stiffen the 2017 Corvette Stingray convertible’s hydroformed aluminum frame structure. The fully electronic drop-top can be lowered with the press of a button or remotely by using the key fob – even while driving at speeds of up to 48 km/h (30 mph) – and hides beneath a hard, body-coloured tonneau cover.
The available Twilight Blue, Spice Red and Black Suede Design Packages take Stingray to the next level of customization, design and performance. And with a variety of available accessories, there’s a Stingray for any driver.

One-third the weight of steel, the Stingray aluminum space frame is 45 kg (100 lb.) lighter than its previous-gen predecessor. The weight savings make Stingray light and lean, ready to take on any road with precision.
The aluminum space frame and rails enable tailored gauge, shape and strength properties with minimal weight. In fact, the all-aluminum space frame is 57% stiffer than the previous-generation Corvette Stingray.
