Overview

, Automotive Editor -

We usually apply the phrase "American icon" to people, but it also applies to pop culture mainstays like the Chevrolet Corvette—for 60 years, since its 1953 introduction, it has been as symbolically American as apple pie.

Chevrolet is preparing an all-new C7 Corvette for 2014, making this the current C6's model's last year. Although many welcome the radical redesign, some enthusiasts question the C7's exotic styling, with which General Motors hopes to attract younger buyers.
