Everything You Want to Know About the 1994 Corvette, All in One Place.
For both owners and enthusiasts alike, 1994 was a significant year for the Chevy Corvette – not because of any significant changes to the car itself, but because of two key announcements made by Chevrolet. First, after years of planning and fund-raising on the part of both Chevrolet and private contributors, the Corvette Museum would finally open on September 2, 1994.
For the grand opening ceremonies, four-thousand Corvettes from virtually every one of the Continental United States would be present. Throughout the three days of opening festivities, 118,000 visitors would tour the museum.
Chevrolet provided a number of significant Corvettes “on permanent loan” to the museum – including the original Sting Ray and the Mako II. Both Zora Arkus-Duntov and Dave McLellan were present for the event. Second, General Motors announced that an all-new C5 Corvette was on track for the 1997 model year.
In fact, much of the Corvette design team had been re-assigned to the C5 program and were already focused on testing the new model, which was why the C4 remained mostly unchanged for 1994.
