General Motors has produced some of the most iconic and groundbreaking vehicles, ever. But there’s one vehicle that stands above the rest, as a pinnacle of design excellence, performance power and precision in every way. The Corvette.
GMRENCEN’s GM World is currently featuring the eight generations of Corvette, ranging from its inception and debut to the model years and successes that encompassed each and every generation – including the 2020 Corvette Stingray. The featured vehicles on display include:
1953-1962: First Generation

An American dream car made in Flint, Michigan, the first generation of General Motors’ Corvette certainly took the world by storm with its iconic style and unmatched luxury.
1963-1967: Second Generation
1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Coupe (C2)
In the 60s, GM’s latest came roaring on to the scene in the form of the Corvette Stingray, whose aerodynamic design is to this day considered to be an American triumph.
1968-1982: Third Generation
1972 Chevrolet Corvette LT1 Convertible (C3)
The third generation of Corvette strayed from the stingray design for a Coke bottle shape, transforming the vehicle into the official pace car of the Indy 500 and the all-American sports car for the future.
1984-1996: Fourth Generation
1987 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible (C4)
In 1984, Corvette returned with another new look. The brand became known for having the most advanced production car on the planet and sold its one millionth Corvette.

Shorter, lighter and more agile, the sixth generation of Corvette boasted a top-of-the-line racing engine with the sleek design of a street car.
2014-2019: Seventh Generation
2019 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (C7)
As GM continued to make technical and design improvements, the automotive company decided it was time to bring back a classic. In 2014, the Corvette Stingray returned better than ever.
