2017 Convertible ZL1

Has anyone heard whether or not the suspension controls are going to screwed up on the convertible like the Gen 5?

The C7 Z06 convertible is the same as the coupe on controls. If not I might think about buying one.

I don't think anyone knows that yet. Where in Dayton are you? I live in a Northern suburb of Dayton.

They said because of improvements in the frame the vert would have the same modes as the coupe, I didn't see any mention of a speed limiter.

According to Yahoo Business, it appears the PDR and track modes will be missing from the convertible.

That pleasure, along with the new convertible’s roofline—which more closely matches the cop-chase sweep of the coupe’s—will cost you maybe 150 pounds of extra weight. And where the ZL1 coupe adopts the Corvette’s Performance Data Recorder and brilliant electronic limited-slip differential, with additional track-oriented modes compared with civilian-issue Camaros, the convertible makes do with a mechanical rear diff. That’s due to space constraints created by its additional structure to prevent any top-down jitters.


Here's the full article.

That's too bad. The Z06 has all the same settings in convertible or coupe. You know they could do it in Camaro if they wanted. Just add a roll bar.
