The Chevy Corvette, “America’s Sports Car”, has been in production for nearly 7 decades. Here are some highlights of this enduring symbol of performance.
America’s sports car, the Chevy Corvette, has been in continuous production since 1953, which is just about 70 years ago. Starting life as a C1, the Corvette is now into its eighth-generation and going strong with a completely new engine configuration. Inspired by the small, maneuverable warship of the same name, the Vette – as it’s also known – has been a halo sports car for Chevrolet since day one. Through the years, the Corvette has been defined, in part, by the use of fiberglass or composite body panels. The other part would of course be its performance, which has only gotten better as time has gone on.
