Only 300 were made, and all were Performance Red coupes with Charcoal interior with Recaro buckets, a T-56 six-speed manual tr...

Top Corvettes - 1993 40th Anniversary Corvette ZR1

March 10th, 2021 Chris Phillip

Model-year 1993 marked the 10th year of the C4 Corvette. Not only had it aged gracefully, but its 300-horsepower LT1 – 95 more than 1984’s L83 – also demonstrated the computer-controlled mojo that helped pull Chevrolet out of the Malaise Era.
