And it's actually for a pretty good reason.
There's no question the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, also known as the C7, is way more advanced than its predecessors. For once the Corvette can honestly be mentioned in the same sentence with brands like Ferrari, Aston Martin, and Porsche. But really, does that fact alone make the C7 a better Corvette than, say, the C4? Is it possible that the C7 has reached a level of refinement so high that it's no longer a true Corvette?
You see, Corvettes of the past had a certain something that made them what they were. Call it a lack of refinement or an overdose of plastic body panels. But they were simple and powerful. Perhaps that was more than good enough all along. Regular Car Reviews shares its deep insights on the matter.
