2018 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Current Base Price: $56,590
The seventh-generation Corvette Stingray debuted as a 2014 model, bringing back the Stingray name in both convertible and coupe form with removable roof panels. The most powerful standard Corvette ever, the new Stingray is powered by 6.2-liter V8 engine producing 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. For a higher level of performance, Chevrolet brought back the ZO6, available as either a coupe or a convertible, powered by a 650-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine. The Corvette Grand Sport has also made a return, featuring a track-tuned aerodynamic package and an LT1 V8 engine rated at 460 horsepower with a dry-sump oil system and active exhaust. If more power is still needed, wait until next spring when the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 arrives, boasting 755 horsepower and a top speed exceeding 210 mph.
