Synopsis: During its more than 50-year history, the Corvette has developed into much more than an automotive nameplate—it has become one of the world’s most recognized automobiles. How the Chevrolet Corvette came to be one of the most popular sports cars in the world—and the longest-running automotive nameplate in Chevrolet history—is a rich and compelling story that combines politics, passion, performance, design, and popular culture. This uniquely sleek and sexy American car has become a worldwide icon much like the Coca-Cola symbol, McDonald’s arches, or Marilyn Monroe. It is a symbol of freedom, speed, power, and fun. Corvette: America’s Sports Car—Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, documents the genesis and evolution of this treasured American icon through many never-before-published photographs from the archives of General Motors as well as a comprehensive story drawn from exclusive interviews with the risk-taking engineers and designers who defied conventional thinking to create this uniquely American automobile. Corvette: America’s Sports Car—Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow celebrates America’s beloved sports car in a stylishly handsome volume, with a custom cover design in Corvette red proudly bearing a sixth-generation Corvette crossed-flags hood emblem.

About the Author: Jerry Burton, the editor of Corvette Quarterly magazine and the award-winning biographer of Corvette’s first chief engineer, the legendary Russian Zora Arkus-Duntov, is one of the Corvette’s foremost historians. Burton has been intimately involved in the Corvette world for over twenty-five years and was on the founding board of directors for the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. He lives in suburban Detroit.
