11. Chevrolet Corvette
Assembly Location: Bowling Green, Kentucky
After years of rumors about a mid-engine Corvette, Chevrolet introduced the eighth generation of this legendary sports car in 2019 and it is indeed the first mid-engine Corvette ever. This revolutionary design for America’s sports car offers more performance, technology and luxury than any previous generation. The new car features better weight distribution with a rear weight bias to improve both straight-line and on-track performance, as well as better responsiveness and sense of control with the driver positioned closer to the front axle. The C8 Corvette comes with a LT2 6.2-liter V8 engine producing 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. No manual transmission is offered — instead, the engine gets teamed with a quick-shifting dual-clutch 8-speed automatic gearbox. Late last year Chevrolet announced a new Corvette Z06, powered by a new 5.5-liter LT6 V8 engine with a flat-plane crankshaft design. The unit produces 670 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, mated with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.
