Overview

The Chevrolet Corvette is the dream machine of thousands - maybe even millions - of people young, old and in-between, and as such it's more than just speed and performance. It's a sexy, low-slung adventure, complete with the sound of a good ol' rumbling V8 exhaust. This year will be the last for the Corvette ZR-1, with its all-aluminum DOHC 32-valve 405-hp V8. Those who want the strongest, most technologically complex Corvette ever may mourn, but it's really not that big a loss. The LT1 engine, the "standard" Corvette engine with 300 hp, is as fast as anyone could reasonably desire and is not very demanding to drive. The Corvette is available as a coupe or convertible. There's only one trim level, and almost everything a motorist might want is standard equipment. Our test car was a Corvette ZR-1 Coupe, with optional power seats added to its equipment list.
