The Corvette is a two-door sports car. The car's first generation was produced since 1953. The first generation of the Corvette is called the C1. The C1 was made until 1962. In the first two years of the C1's existence, the car did not have a V8 engine. Only in 1955 did the V8 engine become an option. The V8 improved the acceleration of the car. In 1956 Chevrolet introduced a new look for the Corvette. From that year on, the car received optional features such as electric windows and a four-speed manual transmission. 2 years later the Corvette was improved again. The interior of the car received, among other things, a new steering wheel and an improved dashboard. In addition, the exterior of the car, for example, received a lower front. This rear of the car was finally completely changed in 1961.
The second generation of the Corvette was produced from 1963 to 1967. The C2 was generally smaller than the C1. The car was designed by Larry Shinoda and was named Sting Ray. The name Sting Ray was derived from the race car called the Corvette Stingray Racer, designed by Bill Mitchell. The Stingray Racer had a major influence on the design of the second-generation Chevrolet Corvette. The car was a coupe with, among other things, hidden headlights and non-functioning hood openings. In late 1963, air conditioning became an option for the car. The Corvette also got optional headrests in 1966.
The third generation of the Chevrolet Corvette was produced from 1968 to 1982. The C3 was the first car to use the so-called T-top. The engine and chassis of the C3 was similar to its predecessor, the C2. However, the body and interior of the C3 differed from the Corvette C2. The third generation also used the name Stingray, but now as one word. In 1970 the C3 Stingray was improved with, among other things, new seats. The use of chrome bumpers came to an end in 1973. The C4 was produced from 1984 to 1996. The car was completely redesigned. The C4 had 43 prototypes due to, among other things, quality problems and a part delay.
