Here's the official GM press release, with lots of model specifics:

Media.GM said:
(2015 Corvette Offers Atlantic, Pacific Design "Models"
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Chevrolet announced today the 2015 Corvette Stingray will be available in two new Design Packages: the Atlantic luxury convertible and the Pacific performance coupe. They go on sale later this year with the rest of the 2015 Corvette Stingray lineup.

“One of the design goals for the Corvette Stingray was to provide customers with the flexibility to tailor the car to their personality,” said Kirk Bennion, Corvette exterior design manager. “The Atlantic and Pacific Design Packages were originally designed to showcase how the Stingray could be configured as a luxury sport GT car or as a high-performance motorsport car.”

The Corvette Stingray Atlantic convertible and Corvette Stingray Pacific coupe concepts were introduced last fall at the SEMA Show. A strong response from enthusiasts helped influence production. They are the latest Chevrolet concepts from SEMA that made concept to reality. Several Camaros, such as the Hot Wheels edition, and the Sonic Dusk are now in production.

“We plan to make news with the Corvette Stingray every year, in part by offering special-edition models that offer a unique, personal ownership experience,” said Todd Christensen, Corvette marketing manager. “Our customers have told us they appreciate these limited-edition models, which have become an important part of the Corvette’s legacy.”

Luxury GT-focused Atlantic Convertible:

The 2015 Corvette Stingray Atlantic Design Package is inspired by the luxury and performance of private jets seen at European vacation destinations. Offered exclusively on Z51-equipped convertibles, it is available in 2LT or 3LT trims, with the following unique features and content:

Front Z06 stage1 splitter
Shark Gray exterior vents, hood “stinger” graphic and tonneau inserts
Chrome Torque wheels with Stingray center caps
Stingray underhood liner and floor mats
Custom splash guards, rear license plate frame and logo valve stem caps
Custom luggage.
The Atlantic Design Package is available in all colors offered on the Corvette Stingray.

Track-focused Pacific Coupe: The 2015 Corvette Stingray Pacific Design Package is inspired by West Coast drivers who attend weekend track events. It is offered exclusively as a Z51-equipped coupe, in 2LT and 3LT trims, with the following unique content:

Color choices of Torch Red, Black, Arctic White, Blade Silver and Shark Gray – a new color for 2015
Z06 stage 2 splitter
Satin black full-length racing stripes
Satin black Z51 wheels with red stripe and Stingray center caps
“CFZ” carbon fiber ground effects package and visible carbon fiber roof panel
Carbon Flash rear spoiler, outside mirrors and exterior badges
Red brake calipers
Competition Sport Seats in red or black
Carbon fiber interior trim, Stingray sill plates and Stingray floor mats
Custom splash guards and rear license plate frame
Indoor car cover (gray).

As with other 2015 models, Corvette’s new Performance Data Recorder is available on the Atlantic and Pacific, as well as an all-new eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission. A seven-speed manual transmission is standard.

The Performance Data Recorder combines the ability to record and share drive videos with the power of a professional-level telemetry system. With included software, users can analyze their laps to improve their driving and lap times. The system includes a high-definition camera integrated into the interior’s rearview mirror assembly.

The new paddle-shift eight-speed is designed to deliver world-class shift times that rival the best dual-clutch designs, and is expected to contribute up to 5-percent greater efficiency, when compared to the previous six-speed automatic. EPA estimates are pending.

Influenced by West Coast culture, here racing-influenced performance and appearance matter this track-inspired Torch Red Corvette Stingray Z51 Coupe’s design is purposeful and compelling. The high-performance hue is complemented by a carbon fiber hood and a visible carbon-fiber weave on the removable roof panel, as well as a satin-black front splitter and rocker extensions.

One of a pair of right- and left-coast-themed concepts, this Blade Silver Convertible model represents the Atlantic side, with sophisticated styling enhancements resembling the details and refinement of a private jet. The exterior wears new Carbon Flash Metallic front splitter, rocker extensions and rear lower diffuser, along with Fusion Gray headlamp housings and hood accents.

I also heard what came out of the Bash that the NPP optional exhaust will now be bundled with the Z51 option. Now does that mean the Z51 package just went up by additional $1200? We haven't heard. The reason being and it makes sense almost every customer that ordered the Z51 package also bought the dual mode exhaust.

Me too! I can really do without the full length racing stripes and the comp seats. That would be a killer for me. although the rest of the stiff, carbon fiber, etc isn't that important to me either. Would rather pick and choose options separately.

Agree with you all, that both packages, since both the Atlantic and Pacific models each have lots of specific, non-changeable components, with at least a component or two being something we do not want, most of us saying end up thinking (or posting), "no thanks, I will built my own, exactly the way I want it."

If the packages had a significant financial discount, many would be willing to compromise and go with one, but they often only have a small financial discount -- if at all.
