Chevrolet Corvette

The Chevrolet Corvette was first offered in 1953 and was the first all-American sports car built by an American car manufacturer. The Corvette has a long history as one of the most popular American Automobile icons and is known for it's exceptional handling and plenty of power, packed into an affordable package that is less expensive than that of other prestigious
vehicles with similar abilities.

Currently there are six generations of Corvettes. The first generation "C1" vettes are from 1953-1962, and are also referred to as the solid-axle vettes, as independent suspension was not available until 1963. The second generation "C2" vettes started in 1963 and ended in 1967. The second or mid-year generation, was designed by Larry Shinoda. The third generation "C3" Vettes started in 1968 and ended in 1982. The fourth generation "C4" is known for it's sleek look and was introduced at the close of 1982 production as a 1984 model and ended in 1996, meaning that there's no such thing as a "1983 Corvette". The fifth generation "C5" started in 1997 and ended with the 2004 model year. The C5 was a radical change from the previous generation and included a hydro-formed box frame, a transmission that was moved to the rear of the car to form an integrated rear-mounted transaxle assembly and was connected to the engine via a torque tube. The sixth generation C6 started in 2005 and Corvette has remained much of the same as engineers have focused on perfecting the Vette, and not reinventing it.
