There are only two undying American sports cars, and the Chevy Corvette is one of them (the Dodge Viper being the second). Although the Vette is not as fast and expensive as the Viper, it is still one of the greatest sports cars in the world.
2016 and 2017 Chevy Corvette
The current generation of the Chevy Corvette, which is seventh by order, debuted in 2014. Currently, the company offers two models in the Vette family: the 2016 Chevy Corvette Stingray and 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06. Both cars cost more than $50,000. The MSRP for the 2016 Chevy Corvette Stingray starts at $55,400, and for the 2016 Chevy Corvette Z06 – at $79,400.
For the next model year, Chevrolet unveiled the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport with the spirit and styling of the original 1963 model. The MSRP will start, presumably, at $66,445 for the coupe and at $70,445 for the convertible, placing it exactly between the Stingray and the Z06.
Chevy Corvette’s Generations
The Chevy Corvette is a very old car debuted more than six decades ago, in 1953. Since then, it was marketed in dozens of versions across seven generations: from 1953 to 1962 (first generation), from 1963 to 1967 (second generation), from 1968 to 1982 (third generation), from 1984 to 1996 (fourth generation), from 1997 to 2004 (fifth generation), from 2005 to 2013 (sixth generation), and from 2014 (seventh generation).
Chevy Corvette’s Future
It is hard to believe that someday there will be no Corvettes. One of the greatest cars ever made is still a great seller. And there is still a room for improvements. For instance, everyone is anticipating the all-wheel drive model capable of beating the most advanced European sports cars. Will see.
