Corvette Fourth generation
The fourth generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, also known as the C4, was produced from 1984 to 1996. It was a major departure from the previous generation Corvette in terms of both design and engineering, and marked a significant shift in the car's evolution.
The C4 Corvette was designed by Dave McLellan and was heavily influenced by the aerodynamic styling of contemporary European sports cars. The car had a sleek, modern body design, with a low, aerodynamic profile and a range of new features, including pop-up headlights, a digital dashboard, and a fully independent suspension system.
The C4 Corvette was also the first Corvette to feature a completely new engine design since the 1950s. The car was powered by a new, 5.7-liter V8 engine that produced up to 245 horsepower, and was available with a range of new transmissions, including a six-speed manual gearbox.
Over the course of its production, the C4 Corvette underwent a number of changes and upgrades, including the addition of new engines, transmissions, and performance enhancements. The car was also the subject of a number of special editions and limited-run models, including the Corvette Grand Sport and the Corvette ZR1.
By the time production of the C4 Corvette ended in 1996, it had firmly established itself as a high-performance sports car that was capable of competing with some of the best cars from around the world. Its combination of style, performance, and technological innovation had made it a true icon of American automotive design, and it remains a highly sought-after collectible car to this day.
