Chevy first released the Corvette in 1953 at the GM Motorama and was a stylish, convertible that quickly became a fan favorite. The car got its name from a small, highly maneuverable naval ship. The original version only came in the iconic white exterior and red interior color scheme.
In 1954, they rolled out some new color options and the 150 hp engine gets increased to 155 hp. In 1955, they released a three-speed manual option as well, making the Corvette more accessible. The second generation wasnít released until 1963, 10 years after the first generationís appearance.
This version has a more European style to it and even came with hidden headlights that would pop up when turned on. There were a few other minor modifications on this version until itís the final year in 1967. The third generation debuted in 1968 and would last all the way until 1982, 14 years later. There were a lot of different changes during that time, including the end of the convertible Corvette in 1975, which would eventually return in 1986.
The fourth generation was released in 1986, with a new and smaller-perimeter frame, forged aluminum control arms, power rack-and-pinion steering, and a slippery exterior. 1991 seems the first major restyling since 1984, with a ZR-1 exterior in both coupe and convertible options.
The Chevy Corvette would go through 2 more generations until 2014 when the 7th and most recent generation came out. This sleek, modern version of the sports car was designed for much more speed, had a new interior design and much more attention to detail.
