Corvette was america's first dream car and there popularity grew very fast. They made 300 of their first model, 3,500 of their second model, 14,500 of their third model, 27,750 of their fourth model, 25,000 of their fifth, 51,500 of their sixth model, 7,000 of their seventh model, 9,750 of their eighth model, 35,000 of the nineth model, and many more of their tenth model.
Their 1st model was the 1953 model, their 2nd was the 1956 model, their 3rd was the 1962 the end of the first generation of corvette, their 4th was the 1966 the end of the third generation, their 5th was the 1982 their last of the forth generation, their 6th was the 1984, their 7th was the 1990 ZR-1 their last of the 5th generation, their 8th was the 1997 the last of their 6th generation, their 9th was the 2008 , and their 10th is the 2010 Grand Sport Coupe.
Some people look at corvette as a role model but I think they should be thought of as a regular sports car company. They went from 0 to 10 within a single decade and are now a peace of amaricana.
