2011 Chevrolet Corvette Overview

Since its introduction in 1953, the Chevrolet Corvette has combined sexy styling with high-end performance that still rivals the greatest (and most expensive) of sports cars. "Although it hasn't been entirely modernized -- leaf springs, anyone? -- General Motors has whittled away at the car's rough edges for well over half a century, and the result is one of the best all-around performance cars for the money," writes Car and Driver.

The 2011 Chevrolet Corvette has simple controls, a large cargo hold (in the coupe) and great fuel economy. However, critics point out that the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette's competitors offer more refined interior accommodations. Also, like most sports cars, its low-slung exterior design makes entering and exiting the cabin a challenge. Still, Chevrolet Corvette's awesome performance abilities and legendary name overshadow these complaints.

Other Sports Cars to Consider

If you're in the market for a Luxury Sports Car, consider the similarly-priced Porsche Boxster and Cayman -- which have no issues keeping pace with the much-loved Corvette, and even trump it in terms of interior luxury. Their limited cargo room, however, make them a bit less practical.

If your primary concern is running laps at the track, the Lotus Exige should do the trick. It produces 212-horsepower less than the Chevrolet Corvette, but blasts from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4.0 seconds. It does, however, run nearly $17K more.

Details: 2011 Chevrolet Corvette

The 2011 Corvette is a carryover from the previous model year. It’s available in two body styles, coupe and convertible, and a variety of trims -- including the Z06-inspired Grand Sport. High-performance Z06 and ZR1 models are also available, but reviewed separately.

  • "The Corvette is fast fun. These are reasonably practical sports cars that cost thousands less than rivals with similar performance, making them great choices." -- Consumer Guide
  • "When it comes to performance, the base model of the 2011 Chevrolet Corvette is one of the world's best bargains.  … The Corvette's only disappointment is an interior that doesn't live up to the rest of the car." -- Edmunds
  • "Maybe 26 mpg isn't fuel efficient to Vespa jockeys, but for a car with the Vette's speed and fun potential, it's untouchable." -- Car and Driver
