Hopefully, by the time that happens, we will all know more about its soft convertible top, double-bubble tonneau and the mechanism that opens and lowers the fully automatic roof at speeds upwards of 30 mph.<br /><br />It is worth mentioning that proceeds from the sale of this first C7 droptop will benefit the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer institute, one of 40 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the United States that strives to prevent, detect and eradicate all forms of cancer. The General Motors Foundation is a longtime supporter of Karmanos, with nearly $6 million in support over the last 15 years.<p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/04/05/first-production-2014-corvette-stingray-convertible-auctioned-fo/">First production 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible auctioned for a cool million</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Fri, 05 Apr 2013 21:24:00 EST.
