At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Chevrolet will introduce the seventh generation Corvette. 60 years after the first Corvette was introduced at the GM Motorama at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York, the General will lift the curtains on the C7 Corvette. The new car will have some big shoes to fill, as the makers of past Corvettes are now as legendary as the car itself: Harley Earl, Zora Arkus-Duntov, Bill Mitchell, Larry Shinoda, Dick Guldstrand, and others. On the eve of the introduction, we take a look at the first six generations of Corvettes.
