Unveiled as a 1984 model, the sleek fourth-generation Corvette proved to be another survivor, enduring 13 years of unprecedented competition. It hosted the return of the Corvette convertible and the birth of a new legend -- the mighty “King of the Hill” ZR-1. Take a look at the highlights of the C4 below.
The first Corvette convertibles in 11 years left the Bowling Green assembly
line starting in early 1986, an exciting, nostalgia-filled occasion
for workers and Corvette fans alike.
In 1990, Corvette introduced the high-performance ZR-1 version. The ZR-1 looked
much like any other 1990 Corvette coupe, something that disappointed many fans.
All 1993 Corvettes were "40th Anniversary" models. This convertible features
special Ruby Red paint and matching leather-lined cockpit.
Like past Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Chevys, the 1995 Corvette was available
as a replica. Buyers got the same special paint and graphics, but not the actual
pacer's roof "hoop," light bar, and other track-required features.
