The Corvette which is actually representative of the third generation of America`s sports car had an incredibly long life, i.e. from 1968 until 1982. However, time has come for the fourth generation, the C4 Corvette to take over. When that was about to happen, there were a lot of rumors about how the car will look like, if it is going to have Mazda`s engine or Italian external design.
Finally, the Vette appeared and it was not an extraordinary surprise. It featured a small0black Chevy V-8 engine able to produce 205 hp. However, 5 years later the Vette appeared rather stronger compared to the 1960 model with ability to produce 375 hp.
Did you know? There is no Corvette produced in 1983. The last one of the 3rd generation was produced in 1982, while the next was in 1984. Nobody knows what is the real the company decided to make a one year brake, but what is known is that the prototypes of 1983 were destroyed with exception of the one that is now exhibited in the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.
