Often referred to as “America’s sports car,” the Chevrolet Corvette is a bonafide classic, which is why we here at Bowman Chevrolet are proud to be your #1 source for everything Corvette. To be a part of the Corvette legacy is an honor. You may not know that the very first Corvette actually came off the assembly line in nearby Flint almost 70 years ago. Thus, we are so excited to be bringing this piece of American history, born right here in Michigan, to the greater Clarkston, Waterford, and Detroit region.
A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
First introduced as a “dream car” at the 1953 Motorama show in New York’s luxurious Waldorf Astoria hotel, the Corvette quickly became a top name for both its class and craftsmanship, and as such the first 300 cars assembled in Flint were all built by hand. Since its introduction, the Corvette has undergone a multitude of facelifts, both big and small:
- Chevrolet experimented with exposed and pop-up headlights
- They moved from fiberglass to an aluminum body
- Introduced the now-iconic hood and fender vents, along with the removable T-top roof panels (Chevy being the first company to make this available)
What has remained constant is the integrity and reliability of this American sports car staple. This is what has made the Corvette the world’s longest-running, continuously produced passenger car. Regardless of the year, it’s no overstatement to say that the Corvette is one of the most instantly-recognizable cars to ever be produced.
MEET THE NEXT GENERATION
The 2016 Corvette continues the long tradition of innovation that Chevy set into motion all those years ago. On top of the sharp look of the Corvette we’ve all come to know and love (from the classic, sporty exterior to interior touches such as a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel), the 2016 model includes cutting-edge modern conveniences like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration, power-closing trunk, and available front-view parking cameras.
JOIN THE LEGACY
All of these are reason enough to ask yourself, “What have I been waiting for all this time?” Schedule a test drive of the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette today at Bowman Chevrolet, and become a part of this illustrious American tradition.
