    Since almost all the vehicles of the 3rd movie are getting a makeover, we have a good chance of seeing this convertible in Transformers 3. Besides, Hasbro will be happy. Since Mattel took the rights to manufacture toys based on the regular Stingray (which explains why we are getting Aston Martin DB9 shaped Sideswipe RPMs and Lotus Elise shaped Deluxe Sidearms Sideswipes), Hasbro now can own the rights to deliver toys based on the new model.

    Wow thats ugly........The original car looks fine, but damn it just doesnt look well as a convertible. It will probably lose its nice back window look. Im not big on american cars anyways especially Chevrolet cars, this was one of the few I liked but now sheesh........it just looks so incomplete

    I think it looks awesome. Nice low(er) profile. I wish it coulda been up against a different background though. I think we're losing some of it to the dark parts of the pic.

    I hope thisos for real, I'd like to see em engineer this into a toy.

    Look on the bright side, if it IS how Sideswipe's gonna look, the convertible hopefully means much smaller backpack on the toy (hopefully) and less kibble to deal with.

    It reminds me of that scene in "Smokey and the Bandit" where the sheriff drives his car under the semi truck trailer and cuts his roof off. :lol 

    This change wouldn't bother me enough to get me mad... But my :2c:  , if Bay has to change something, how about the Autobots scanning something new besides GM concepts? ;)

    Folks, I don't think this is real. Like someone mentioned earlier, the doors don't line up right. And other things seem a bit 'off'. I'd say this is someone's custom or 'kit' car. Almost looks like a modded Shelby Series-1 but no one would be that crazy, not even a Transformers fan. I hope.

    well if anyone read it first without jumping to the photos, it does say that it is possible that this is someone's customized corvette, and could possibly have nothing to do with Transformers 3, but who knows, it could very well be Sideswipe

    I thought it was confirmed that Bumblebee wasn't a convertible:

    ...doesn't look like it too me. This should be changed.

    I really like the convertible model for Sideswipe, but whether or not it's in the movie, I like the possibility of Sideswipe being back in TF3 in any form.

    The next releasing Camaro IS a convertible. So, Chevy maybe thinking of releasing a Corvette convertible alongside the Camaro convertible. :)

    Yeah, I know... but the statement is referring to the characters, not the production cars.

    As others have said, this would most likely be done via remote control. They may also have techniques such as dressing the driver in a key color suit, making digital removal easier during post-production. With today's technology and effects capabilities, having a driver-less convertible isn't anything terribly difficult to pull off.

    • Alternators Sideswipe (interesting coincidence, no?)
    • Alternators Windcharger/Decepticharge
    • Alternators Battle Ravage
    Those all looked good to me. :)

    Im gonna say it has nothing to do with the movie, in fact its not the stingray concept, but rather as the article implies a c6 corvette kitted out to look the part. The headlights of the original are also totally missing, replaced by lights in the front ducting, body lines are slightly off, and the stance is different.

    Maybe he re-scans midway through the film? Like he did in movie one, and the twins did in ROTF

    if it is S.W i wish they wouldn't keep changing them, it makes unbelievable. but they might use it as sunstreaker, if the re-paint it.

    I think I might be one of the few that doesn't think its that bad. It looks fine to me. But I'm not sure if its sideswipe, since it wasn't seen near a TF 3 set. But then it makes me wonder how someone could there hands on a concept stingray mod? Either way, I hope some version of sideswipe shows up in the movie.
