Our Two Cents: The Best Corvettes
The Ultimate Resource
The Greatest Ever / Practical Lists / Best by Gen & Decade / Test Your Knowledge
When Chevrolet introduced the stylish “polo white” convertible with a “sportsman red” interior in 1953, few people believed it would become one of the most successful sports cars in the world and one of Chevy's best models. The innovative fiberglass body of the C1 Corvette powered by a lackluster 235 cubic inch inline 6-cylinder engine resulted in poor performance and disappointing sales in 1954 and prompted Chevrolet to consider scrapping the project. Cars as musical instruments. Some are capable of playing goosebumps songs and the best ones even manage to echo overseas, as it happened for Corvette which evokes a timeless myth born in 1953 and which has not been afraid to reinvent itself, transforming its identity just like the greatest icons dare. Now at its eighth generation, Corvette is the image of a stars and stripes sports car that through its previous seven generations has given birth to an endless array of versions, all perfectly capable of playing a sweet and melancholy song the moment before and a hard rock tune the next. Below, we try the impossible, to sort Corvettes into a number of "Best Of" lists. From the ultimate Corvette GOAT list, to practical guides for those looking to buy a Corvette and we even threw in a bunch of knowledge lists that will test your Corvette acumen. Enjoy.
