David Zenlea David Zenlea Score Pending 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

We forget all about the the flimsy seats, and the cheap controls, when we floor the 427 and experience that amazing sensation of a big pushrod V-8 roaring toward 7000 rpm. It starts at $76,900, which is something of a bargain considering that it basically matches the performance of a $149,000 Porsche 911 Turbo cabriolet.

The surprisingly livable 2013 Chevrolet Corvette marks a fitting end to GM’s sixth-generation icon: Enjoy the attention, grab a gear and let ’er rip — all shortcomings are forgiven.

Staff Review Edmunds.com 7.8 out of 10 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

When it comes to performance, the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the world’s best bargains. A lack of refinement proves you get what you pay for, but since you get a whole lot of old-school American muscle, that should be more than enough for many.

The 2013 Corvette accelerates and handles as you’d expect: very, very well. Inside, the Corvette shows a bit of why it costs so little for so much performance, however.

The Grand Sport was whoppingly capable on our favorite back roads. We were also renewed in our amazement for the Corvette as a greatly involving driver’s car. But the convertible top and interior are dated.

The Corvette Z06 is one of the best cars in the world. This is an extraordinary machine. Drive one if you can.

The Chevrolet Corvette is the great American sports car. It’s thrilling to drive and delivers breathtaking acceleration performance and exceptionally tenacious grip for braking and cornering. Yet it’s fairly easy to live with and relatively easy to drive.

The Corvette Z06 really isn’t a car that comes across as practical. It was never meant to be that way. It’s a high-performance baseball bat that requires a careful wielding all the time. But if you’re willing to give it the attention it demands, it’s worth every second.

Today’s ‘Vette is a badass sports car. It’s not hard to get a sense of this car’s seriousness. But “serious” isn’t quite the adjective that comes to mind when you slip inside — the better descriptor for the cabin is “dated.”

GM is going with a less is more mentality for its all-new Z06 Carbon Limited Edition Corvette. You get the look, feel, sound, and most of the capabilities of the ZR1 without the six-figure price tag.
