Reviews the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette 427


The 2013 Chevrolet Corvette marks a fitting end to GM's sixth-generation icon, says Industry Analyst Kelsey Mays. This is the generation’s last year before an all-new 2014 Corvette is unveiled. The Corvette’s departure is marked by a 427 Convertible Collector Edition that combines the high-performance 505-horsepower Z06 with a convertible body style, an unavailable blend before 2013. Despite disappointments that have plagued the current generation from day one, Mays says the car still holds unmistakable appeal.

2013 Chevrolet Corvette


The chevy corvette every year gets better and better. I like the newer ones versus the old ones.


That interior is so bad that it's almost a deal breaker. If the steering wheel were different, that alone would be a major upgrade. That steering wheel is SO BAD!!

Agent Mike

Leave it to GM to sell their Top of the Line sports car with an interior that Kia would be ashamed to put inside one of their cars.


I have to disagree with Michael here with one caveat. The performance and suspension technology have improved year over year for the Corvette and it has had a positive halo effect on GMs other performance cars from Cadillac and the new Camaro.

Where I disagree, is in the quality and design of the Corvette. There has been far too much time between design refreshes of the car and both the exterior and interior are sorely lacking an update. I fear the next gen will, again, be more of a refresh to the current style and not a more complete update. However, styling is subjective so I won't belabor the point.

The interior quality of the car, detailed in the accompanying story, is deplorable for a car at this price point and with this heritage. There really is no excuse for it. If I want to take someone for a ride in a Vette and treat them to the a wild ride, I don't want to worry that whatever trim piece they hold onto for dear life will break off in their hands.


i hate chevy's even though i do like older camaros lik 88 modles go dodge
