Corvette Of The Day: 1993 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1

For 1993, the ZR-1 Corvette’s horsepower was increased from 375hp to 405hp. Given the overall lack of ZR-1 sales, many questioned the decision to improve upon the performance of the LT5 engine at all, though most critics agreed that doing so would again increase the performance gap between the ZR-1 and the base coupe, putting the ZR-1 back in a class of its own. Additionally, the ZR-1 Corvette received the accolades of being the winner of the top speed category of Car & Driver’s “Ten Best” issue (January, 1994).  Despite this, the ZR-1’s numbers continued to head south, with just 448 units being produced that year, once again showing just how underrated this car is back in the day.
