All American
Chevrolet’s All-American sports car debuted in 1953 as a 2-seat convertible powered by a 6-cylinder engine. Since then Corvette has evolved into a high-performance mid-engine sports car that challenges the top exotics of the world. Chevrolet’s eighth generation of the legendary Vette — a mid-engine design for the first time ever — continues Corvette’s evolution from a racy convertible to a race-toughened test bed conquering tracks around the world to a survivor of emissions regulations of the 1970s, emerging as one of the top performance cars of all time. Enjoy this quick bit of Chevrolet Corvette history in photos, from that original convertible to today’s C8.
