Edmunds: Best And Worst Corvettes Of All Time

DETROIT (WWJ) – In anticipation of Chevrolet’s debut of the new Corvette Sunday at the North American International Auto Show,  here’s a couple of fun lists of the best and worst Corvettes of all time.

The 1963 Corvette Fuel-Injected Coupe tops the list of the Best Corvettes of All Time, according Edmunds.com, the premier resource for car shopping and automotive information. The second-generation Corvette heads the list because, says Edmunds.com, it’s “one of the most alluring automotive designs ever conceived.”

“What really made this car great was that it set the standard for every subsequent Corvette,” says Edmunds.com Editor in Chief Scott Oldham. “And more than a half-century after this model’s debut, Corvette continues to be the iconic standard for American sports cars.”

The new Corvette will represent the seventh generation for the brand, and is expected to include a fully redesigned interior with new seats and more luxurious materials. Just last month, Edmunds.com published spy shots of the 2014 Corvette’s dramatic new shape.

But not all Corvettes are winners – also assembled is a list of the Top 10 Worst Corvettes of All Time. Topping that list is the 1975 Corvette Base, which managed 0-60mph in a slow 7.7 seconds on just 165 horsepower.

The North American International Auto Show will take over Cobo Center in downtown Detroit from January 14 through January 27, bringing to the public the best the auto industry across the globe has to offer.
