For several decades, Chevrolet has been one of the largest and best-known automakers in the USA. The vehicles from Chevrolet have gained popularity in the USA and Europe due to their reliability. Chevrolet’s cars are prominent worldwide due to the constant new technical innovations and an extremely competitive price-performance ratio.
The brand with the well-known bowtie in the logo produces well-known pickups and SUVs. The brand can not resist athleticism in style: The model portfolio has always included some very popular Chevrolet sports cars and is being improved on target and continuously optimized its performance.
The Chevrolet Corvette is to the Germans what their Porsche 911 is to the Americans: The Corvette has been the Chevrolet sports car for 8 generations! It has become a serious sports car that looks stunning and plays technically in the European competition! While the previous 7 generations of the Corvette were all front-engine sports cars, Chevrolet made it radically different with the latest edition: The Corvette C8 comes with a new design and a mid-engine in the rear! Otherwise, Chevrolet’s most efficacious weapon is state-of-the-art: 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, electronic dampers, a direct-injection V8, and a fully digital cockpit are just some current features to be mentioned.
The top model of the Chevrolet sports car is available as a Corvette Coupé and Corvette Cabrio. In these models, V8 engines are used, they differ in displacement and the type of charging. The recently relaunched base model is called the Corvette C8 Stingray and is launched with a 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8. The next higher model is the Corvette C7 Grand Sport, with a similar engine. The Corvette C7 Z06, however, relies on an additional compressor for its 6.2-liter V8. The Corvette C7 ZR1 with almost 800 hp breaks all records in terms of performance!
In addition to the powerful Corvette, Chevrolet has been offering a cheaper sports car for the mass market with the Camaro for several years. The current, sixth generation of models has been on the market since 2015 and has everything that characterizes a real sports car: an agile chassis with perfect weight distribution, engines with ample cubic capacity, and matching (on request) a crisp 6-speed manual transmission and the obligatory rear-wheel drive. The result is an affordable sports car that does not have to hide from its established competitors in terms of performance and suitability for everyday use. The Camaro is also optically – based on the muscle cars from glorious times – a real feast for the eyes and cemented its status!
The current entry-level model of the Chevrolet sports car is available as a closed Chevrolet Camaro Coupé as well as an open Chevrolet Camaro convertible. The Camaro has the choice between a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine as an entry-level version, a 3.6-liter V6 engine, and a 6.2-liter V8 engine in the top model Chevrolet Camaro 6.2 V8 SS. The top is marked by the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with the 6.2-liter V8 supercharged engine known from the Corvette ZR1 and over 650 hp. The ZL1 is also fully optimized for use on the racetrack in terms of the chassis and the brakes.
There are several ways you can enjoy the benefits of being behind the wheel of a Chevrolet sports car. In the end, of course, this is primarily a question of budget.
The Chevrolet sports cars are all available as new. In addition to buying from the nearest Chevrolet dealership, leasing websites have also established themselves here. Buying a new car is naturally the most expensive option, but it also offers several advantages: You get your Chevrolet in exactly the configuration you want. The car has the full manufacturer’s guarantee. And, the condition is flawless.
The market for used Chevrolet sports cars is huge, and the range of corresponding sellers is just as huge: Whether directly from the Chevrolet dealer, from an exclusive sports car dealer, from a used car dealer, corresponding online portal, or from private sources – the decision is entirely up to the buyer. Buying a used sports car naturally also has the advantage that you can also acquire older, manufactured model series, such as the no longer available Chevrolet Camaro Z28 with a 7-liter naturally aspirated engine.
One alternative that has become very popular in recent years is renting a sports car. It has several advantages: You don’t have to spend a fortune to drive your dream car. All costs are included in the rental price. You can change vehicles with complete flexibility if you feel like doing a new one. And you don’t have any annoying monthly costs that burden you even when financially a little tight.
