Corvette Benchmarks

  • 1954 – Inspired by GM Designer Harley Earl’s love of the Jaguar XK120, the first Corvette makes its way through the assembly line in St. Louis, MO.

  • 1963 – The redesigned Corvette Stingray brings the Corvette toe-to-toe with the European sports coupe competition in a real way.

  • 1967 – The L88 big-block cast-iron engine gets fitted under the hood, developing up to 500 hp and becoming an instant legend.
