For the first three generations, Chevrolet saw it fit to keep its infamous sports car formula reasonably unchanged. Sure, new designs and facelifts were presented, but the Corvette was starting to get a little predictable. GM was well aware of the Corvette's potential and knew it was now or never for their star to take the spotlight. Enter the Corvette. The car was unlike any other; it had a completely new design and technology. It was built from new materials, all under a completely new team. It was quite literally the new definition of an American sports car. Sure, the Corvette has come a long way when you compare it to some of the later models, but if you want to be taken back to the time when the Corvette had cemented its legacy as an automotive legend, owning this C4 is a fine way of doing so.
On the subject of new, a quick Google search on the first three generations of the Corvette will show you that Chevrolet was being bold with this one. As brandished by this brilliant white example sporting a bronze lift-off roof panel, the design of the C4 is sleek and seamless, not just for aesthetic pleasure but for performance. New materials were used to cut down weight, and the car shrunk by nearly 10 inches in length. This example has some modern upgrades, including a 5-link rear suspension with transverse fiberglass springs and a power rack & pinion steering. The current owner also happened to mention that it was sitting on a set of new tires. Remember how we mentioned that the C4 was meant to be revolutionary? Imagine stepping into a sports car from the 80s only to be greeted by a plush red leather interior and placing your hands upon a tilt and telescopic steering wheel. Gaze just a little ahead, and your eyes will meet a digital liquid display instrument cluster at a time where information on vehicles would be pointed at by a needle. The red leather Corvette bucket seats aren't just comfortable but make use of the multi-adjustable configuration, a first time for this car. There's no mistaking it; this 1989 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe was a game changer in its era.
Chevy didn't forget that their new creation would be nothing if it were all about looks and didn't bite. As for the bite, it came with the force of a 5.7L TPI V8 engine with tuned port injection to produce close to 240hp through a 4-speed automatic transmission.
