1989 Chevrolet Corvette

The 1989 Chevrolet Corvette was the first to offer a 6-speed manual transmission, taking the place of the 4+3 transmission that had appeared in the other C4 cars.

The base engine was a 5.7-liter L98 350-ci V8 rated at 240 horsepower. $25,895 would get you the Callaway option and an increase to 382 horsepower. A removable fiberglass hardtop was available for the first time since 1975.
