Sideswipe Goes Convertible?

A few months ago Bumblebee was rumored to have become a convertible due to a change in design for the Chevy Camaro and now its Sideswipe's turn. In Revenge of the Fallen, Sideswipe's alt mode was the Corvette Stingray Concept car. Corvette Blogger was posted an image of a convertible version of the concept car spotted near a Transformers 3 set that suggests that Sideswipe might get an upgrade. Since the vehicle has yet to be released by Chevy, I am sure they wouldn't mind the current model making an appearance in the movie. It way too early to say this is an accurate assumption as we don't even know if the character is in the movie. This is a very sleek looking ride so it might be a welcome alteration to the character. Thanks to Christopher for the link.

  2. I liked the stylized stingray element of the car's roof. If it becomes a convertible, then that element will be gone.

  4. If it was gold it would make a good Sunstreeker. At this point I say its some sort of a kit.

  8. Bilal: Great observation. It's definitely a kit car from another angle. You can see the door gaps, the headlights inside the front air dam, and some other really hard to find things if you've been looking at this and the actual Stingray for some time.

    Nice ride, definitely grabs attention, but certainly NOT Sideswipe.
