What a brilliant move for Chevrolet to revive the Corvette Grand Sport, which hadn't been used since 1996. With a base price of $55,000, it's even less than a Porsche 911. Owners will get absolutely brilliant performance and bang for the buck value. It replaces the Z51 trim level and has better handling, wider wheels, revised shocks, a stabilizer bar, and revised gear ratios. Basically, it's everything the base Corvette should have been all along.
It also comes with either 18 or 19-inch wheels and the wide track front end taken from the higher performing Z06. To make the Grand Sport trim unique to the lineup, buyers can also opt for the Heritage Package that includes front fender has marks and two-tone leather seats with special Grand Sport embroidery. Overall, it's a major improvement over the Z51 in both styling and performance. Until the next generation C7 Corvette debuts, the Grand Sport Coupe is one of, if not the best, high performance value cars in the world.
