The History of CHEVROLET CORVETTE – PIT BOX


Today we will talk about HISTORY
We will talk talk about POWER & PERFORMANCE
We will talk about a sport car for more than 60 years
Through 8 generations
Sure we are going to talk about CHEVY CORVETTE
CHEVY CORVETTE was firstly produced in 1953
C1 was the 1st generation
It was newly produced as a sport car
by GM and it is proud of manufacturing this car
This car is considered as one of the best sport cars through the history of GM
SCOTT Head of PR at GM during that period
He is the guy behind the name of CORVETTE
and GM they liked and approved the name
1st generation C1 was

2nd generation C2 was

3rd generation C3 was

4th generation c4 was

5th generation C5 was

6th generation C6 was

7th generation C7 was

8th generation C8 which is the current generation
and it was recently revealed in 7/2019 as 2020 YM
So the C8 by the way it is the first generation of
CHEVROLET CORVETTE which has REAR-MID engine
What is the REAR-MID engine?
The REAR-MID engine means that the engine is located in the mid of the car
and little bit to the back
CHEVY CORVETTE gained so many awards
from several international media publications during the 60 years
CHEVY CORVETTE sales reached
units until the C7
and of course this number will increase
specially after revealing the rear-mid engine C8
The direct competitor of CHEVY CORVETTE is the DODGE VIPER
DODGE VIPER didn’t reach to the sales figure which CORVETTE has achieved
GM has set up a very smart sales and marketing strategy to sell such a car
Also not to forget that DODGE VIPER
has faced a lot of circumstances as for the mother company CHRYSLER
and this is in return effected directly
VIPER’s sales and continuity of its production
GM considers that CHEVY CORVETTE is not just a sport car
specially for an american sport car
Because GM categorize CHEVY CORVETTE as a SUPER SPORT CAR
and it’s not just a sport car as I said before
comparing with the other american sports car which competes
FORD MUSTANG or any other brand
This is why CHEVROLET produced CAMARO
in order to compete with its
competitor FORD MUSTANG
and here GM they submit this model to be head to head
with FORD MUSTANG
by this CHEVY CORVETTE gained a higher level
to compete with
FERRARI & LAMBORGHINI or any other sport car
