25. Chevrolet Corvette 1953–1967 United States
The Corvette is Chevrolet’s most famous sports car. Named for a small, maneuverable warship, the Corvette debuted in 1953 as a convertible. Its most popular design, the Stingray, features a short rear-end and long, curved nosed. The line is now entering its seventh generation of production and it appears a safe bet to say Americans will continue to love Corvettes for the foreseeable future. The sporty, sexy design is only the beginning, as these high powered sport cars have won a staggering amount of performance based awards and accolades. Originally the Vets were manufactured in Flint, Michigan as well as St. Louis, Missouri. Today, however, they are built in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where they are the state’s official sport car.
