1996 Corvette convertible in Sebring Metallic Silver
First available in March 1983, 1996 was the last year for the C4 generation. The Corvette had evolved remarkably during those 14 years. It effectively dealt with tough fuel economy and emissions standards while still achieving remarkable performance goals and quality improvements.

1996 Corvette
A new Corvette engine - the LT4 - debuted for 1996. The LT1 was still available and a dividing line of sorts was established with all LT4s mated to manual transmissions and the LT1s assigned automatic transmission duties. The LT4 (RPO LT4; $1,450.00) was an update of the highly appreciated LT1 and boasted high flow aluminum heads, larger valves supported by high load springs, a more aggressive camshaft and higher compressions (10.8:1) pistons. Redline was 6,300 RPM.
