More than forty years after the 1953 Corvette debuted Chevrolet introduced the fifth-generation Corvette for 1997. The C5 almost didn t happen. Originally scheduled for release in 1993 the Corvette was killed for a short time before performance zealots within General Motors resuscitated the project and made the new car a reality. With the addition of a hardtop model to the lineup three different Corvettes are available for 1999.The new C5 was both lighter and stiffer than the C4 thanks to hydroformed frame rails and featured a transaxle that both improved weight distribution and freed up interior space.Pushrod power in the form of a reworked 5.7-liter V8 engine dubbed the LS1 motivates the Corvette. Horsepower is rated 345 at 5 600 rpm while torque measures 350 lb-ft at 4 400 rpm.Equipped with the standard four-speed automatic transmission the Corvette will hit 60 mph in a shade over five seconds. To help reign in the power on slippery surfaces traction control is a standard equipment. EPA mileage figures are phenomenal for a high-powered sports car.Chevrolet s Corvette Convertible offers one of the most formidable blends of performance panache and price on this planet.This 1999 Corvette is fast traffic--quick at the starting gate beautifully balanced surprisingly comfortable and built to a far higher standard than any Corvette in history.Although there are a number of very good sports cars in the same price range as the Corvette it doesn t really have any direct competitors.The similarly priced Mercedes-Benz SLK BMW Z3 2.8 and Porsche Boxster are all delightful and competent players but they play at a more modest pace. When it comes to real pavement-ripping prowess none can match the Corvette s sheer power and corner-gobbling grip.The Dodge Viper does rival the Corvette s dynamic capabilities and indeed it s even faster but it requires a single-minded focus on brutish performance to enjoy it. When it comes to civilization and comfort the Corvette wins hands-down.To get a similar blend of comfort and true sports car performance you ll find yourself in a Porsche store looking at 911s but the 911 can t compete with the Corvette s price.The Corvette is no longer this country s only sports car and it s certainly evolved well beyond the realm of what we call affordable. Moreover there doesn t seem to be much question that the latest generation of this all-American is also world-class.The 1999 Corvette is among the best true sports cars your money can buy.Our 1999 Corvette 2dr Convertible was equipped with some of the most desirable factory installed options that enhance this high performance car for extra comfort convenience and safety (please refer to the window sticker for the optional package in this car at time of purchase).Come see and appreciate this beauty for yourself!
