The Corvette hardtop joined the coupe (with removable roof panel) and the convertible in the 1999 Corvette lineup. According to Corvette Brand Manager Dick Almond, the hardtop Vette has a character all its own.

"Part of our potential customer base really wants a simpler, more elemental, yet high-performance machine," said Almond. "The new hardtop is the ultimate hot sports car, yet it will carry the lowest base price in the Corvette family. Those factors combined should make the consumer appeal for Corvette even greater."

The hardtop features a subtle silhouette distinction that sets it apart from the coupe and convertible, while still preserving the classic Corvette lines. Corvette hardtop standard features include:

- Z51 suspension, designed for sanctioned racing competition or for drivers who demand the ultimate Corvette handling package.
Z51 features stiff springs, large stabilizer bars and large monotube shock absorbers. (F45 Real Time Damping Suspension Package not available on hardtop.)
- Six-speed manual transmission (automatic transmission not available).
- Limited-slip rear axle with 3.42 ratio.

The hardtop is a rarity among the many iterations of Vettes offered through the years. The only other fixed-roof coupes offered in the "60s are among the most collectible -- the most memorable of which is the first, the 1963 "split-window" Corvette Sting Ray.
