Iconic coupes built between 1955 and 1957 by Chevrolet is widely-asserted as the epitome of American motoring greatness. While not every coupe over the course of Chevrolet's more than century-long existence has gained an equal legendary status, there have been some compelling and meaningful models. The longest continuously produced sports car, the Chevrolet Corvette, has given the bowtie badged brand proof they can build a powerful, world-topping vehicle. The Camaro is also a favored two-door coupe exhibiting Chevrolet's version of a pony car (an affordable yet powerful vehicle). Eight-cylinder power is found within the Camaro and Corvette line. For years, special high-performance models of both Chevrolet products have produced in excess of 500 horsepower.
The iconic American two-door sports car is in the last year of its fifth generation, the 2004 Chevrolet Corvette is due for a total redesign next year but is still available as a high-performance coupe or convertible this year, including the wild Z06.
