SANTA ANA, California — In one of the more dramatic conversions of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, Callaway Cars has transformed the sports car into a shooting brake.

The Callaway AeroWagon Concept is projected to be a 200+ mph automobile, although Callaway did not provide any drivetrain specifications.

Callaway said the AeroWagon option is expected to be priced under $15,000 when it debuts in the fall. Pricing on the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has not been announced.

"Callaway plans to manufacture the body package providing an openable hatch that would result in a unique style and increased interior space, positioning the Corvette in the elite class of two-door shooting brakes," the company said in a statement on Thursday.

The option will be available through Callaway dealers in the U.S.

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was the darling of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. The idea of a hatchback Corvette isn't new. GM built a Corvette Nomad concept in 1954 as well as a similar looking Pontiac Trans Am Type K concept in 1977.

Edmunds says: The amazing 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray looks good in any form.

  • Interesting design. I think it's time for a 4 seater Vette. If people will buy the near hideous Panamera, a 4 seater Vette should sell. I'd be interested.

    @Markinnnaples: And if not the Vette, then a 4 seat Ford Thunderbird with the 5.0 (a more spacious and luxurious spec than the Mustang).

    Better looking shooting brake than Ferrari's version, but 15k is a bit much. It would be more interesting as a factory option for a smaller price premium.

    I think it looks great. Better than a 400k FF

    I like it a lot, looks better than the fastback. markinnaples, I disagree about your suggestion of a 4 seater Vette. Seriously?

    Only if it has round taillights

    Simply gorgeous.

    Wow, I'm surprised Edmunds got this story 16 days early! But seriously, it looks darn good. Much better than the "GT" wagon-like turds BMW has been crapping out.

  • garrym, Yes, I am serious. If it works with the 911, why can't it work for the Corvette?

    That's the best, wickedly fast(back) looking Corvette...standing still.

  • I LOVE this car

    Two thumbs up for the Callaway AeroWagon Concept Aftermarket Body Package... Below $15,000 is not chump change. Profile view of rear end cap looks good. :)

  • Oh, and even the pedestrian 911 (can I say that?) has four seats, so again, why not the Vette?

    WHY ruin something that is so beautiful?

    They're bringin back the TRANS AM?!?!? And it's a wagon?!?!? That's f#^$*in' awesome! Those gull-wing windows sure will make it easier for LeeAnn to slide them car seats in. Way to go General! Now about that Fiero reboot we been waitin on . . .
