Chevrolet Corvette history and evolution
The Chevrolet Corvette debuted back in 1953 as a two-seat convertible. It featured fibreglass body panels, a bold red interior and a 150-horsepower six-cylinder engine. The car was not an instant hit, however, selling only 183 units the first year. In 1958, Chevrolet upgraded the Corvette to a 195-horsepower V8 engine, helping it live up to its sports car image. The first coupe model arrived in 1963 with the introduction of the second generation. The best-selling third generation launched in 1968 and ran until 1982. Over 540,000 third-generation Chevrolet Corvettes were sold over this period, with the 1979 Chevrolet Corvette becoming the highest-selling model ever.
