Chevrolet Corvette history and evolution
Since its debut in 1953, the Chevrolet Corvette has evolved through eight generations. The very first Chevy Corvettes had fibreglass bodies and were only produced in white with red interiors. With the launch of the second generation in 1963, both the coupe style and the Stingray name were introduced. By 1966, the Chevrolet Corvette was available with a 435 horsepower engine, but new emissions regulations and a switch to unleaded gas caused a drop to 165 horsepower by 1975. Fortunately, as the years progressed, the Chevrolet Corvette became more powerful and more distinctive in appearance. Today's models boast up to 495 horsepower and a striking supercar look.
