Since 1953, Chevrolet has produced and sold the Corvette, a two-door, two-passenger premium sports automobile. The Corvette, which has eight design incarnations and is known by the designations C1 through C8, is renowned for its performance and unique fiberglass or composite bodywork. Up until 2019, it had a front-engine, and after then, a mid-engine.


Chevrolet's flagship model, the Corvette, is now the only two-seat sports car made by a significant American automaker.

In 1953, GM management agreed to Myron Scott's idea to name the company's new sports vehicle after the corvette, a small nimble warship. Scott was at the time the assistant director of the Public Relations division.

 A convertible was the initial model, and it was unveiled as a concept vehicle at the 1953 GM Motorama before going on sale later that year. The second version was released as a coupe and convertible in 1963. The National Corvette Museum is located in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where the Corvette is now built since 1981. The car was once made in Flint, Michigan, and St. Louis, Missouri.

The Corvette is currently referred to as America's Sports Car" in many circles. The Corvette "became associated with freedom and adventure" after appearing in the early 1960s television program Route 66, according to Automotive News, and went on to become "the most successful concept vehicle in history and the most popular sports car in history.
