1996 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe RWDReview

1996...best Of The C4 Generation Particularly In Lt4 Configuration — 1996 CE LT4 Coupe. LT4 @ 330HP is known to be conservatively rated. Many LT4's come in north of 360HP and will outperform %75 of newer LS1's. Not to be overlooked is, the C4 Corvette when released in 1984 was proclaimed to be; "The best handling production car ever produced" A beautiful car that still receives admiring glances.

Owner for 0 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:3,500

Pros: LT4 Engine, Handling, Body Styling

Cons: Exit/Entry (High Sills), Instrumentation (although improved over earlier C4's), Torsional rigidity lacking with top off.

Best Of The C4s. — The ride and handling is by far the best of any C4 I have experienced... far better comfort than a 1984 with Z51 suspension, far better than the base early suspension cars also. This car uses a big n little tire combination so tires can not be rotated front to rear. That can be a treadwear issue.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Exceptional performance value for the price.  The LT4/six-speed transmission makes this car.

Cons: There is just about enough cargo room to pack your lunch and if you drop the top, you had better be a light eater!  Much less cargo than the fastback coupe.

Fun To Drive Especially With The Top Down — I like everything about this car. It has a unique color, polo green. It is great looking and sporty and fun to drive. You can't beat cruising with the top down. Great value for America's number one sports car! Can't beat it!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: BEAUTIFUL, SPORTY

Cons: TWO SEATS

Bottom Line On This Car Is Its A "corvette, America's Car" Nothing Better. — This car performs well, very good acceleration and braking and it handles very well on ramps and curves. The dash instrument trim lens rattles when its cold. This car is in very good condition inside and out. The only problem I find is getting in and out of this car its not easy and for a woman with a dress or skirt on forget it. I had a 77 vette before and was much easier to get in and out of. This car gets very goood gas milage highway of approx. 25 mpg, maintenance is a little expensive to have it done like oil changes using mobile 1, but I love driving after sliding down into it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Top reason for driving this car is I love Corvettes and would love to have a new one.

Cons: Top reason to avoid this car is minimal and thats getting in and out of it.

This Car Is A Real Head Turner. Many Compliments. — This is a real clean car. People always ask, if the car color is aftermarket. With larger wheels and low profile tires, the car really hugs the turns. Always garaged and adult driven. Only 57500 miles. Car is driven in late spring to early fall only. Great car...great price.

Pros: This convertible come with a Glass rear window with defogger.  The color is "Dark Metalic Purple".  Purple is the lowest percentage of car colors that year with only 320 cars produced in 96.  $3000 Konig Privat wheels and Kumho tires.  Bose Sound system w/ cassette/cd player. New water pump.  New starter.  Always garaged.  Runs like new.  Qualifies for Haggerty Collector's Insurance (cheap).  Stock wheels (OEM) with tires included.  Custom cover.

Cons: Small scratch in left side panel.
