Often billed as America’s sports car, the Corvette has been in continuous production since 1953, when just 300 were built. Every one of those cars were white and powered by a six-cylinder engine. Since 1955, all Corvettes have had V-8 power. Throughout the model’s history, all Corvettes have been two-seaters, with a composite body and front-engine, rear-drive layout — until now, as the 2020 Corvette debuted a mid-engine design. This iconic sports car has always enjoyed a loyal fan base and remains a bargain compared with more exotic alternatives.
