This Car Singlehandedly Saved the Corvette
The Corvette C4 was the car that singlehandedly saved the Corvette from its demise due to the recession and a lack of popularity. During the last couple of years, the C3 generation was a joke with its warmed up ‘60s styling. Also, its big, heavy engine produced less than 200 HP.
However, in 1984 everything changed with the arrival of the C4. The car was new from the ground up, with an updated chassis, engine and design. And best of all, it had a crazy digital dash in the interior. Over the years, Chevrolet managed to turn it into a world-class sports car with the performance and road holding that could rival those European exotics that were far more expensive.
