Cars That Stand the Test of Time

Chevrolet Corvette Today
After years of rumors about a mid-engine Corvette, Chevrolet introduced the eighth generation of this legendary sports car in 2020, and it is the first mid-engine Corvette in history. Still recognizable as a Corvette despite new styling, the all-new Stingray boasts better weight distribution, vastly improved performance and a high-tech cockpit. The C8 Corvette Stingray launched with the all-new LT2 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque. Chevrolet does not offer the new Corvette with a manual transmission — instead, the engine gets paired with Chevrolet’s first 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. Last fall Chevrolet added the high-performance Z06 to the lineup, boasting a new 5.5-liter LT6 V8 engine that puts out 670 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Later this year Chevrolet will add the 2024 Corvette E-Ray — the first-ever electrified Corvette with all-wheel drive and a powerful 6.2-liter LT2 small-block V8 engine.
