A 1987 Corvette is a C4-generation Corvette. C4 just means it is of the model years 1984-1996. (There were 1983 Corvettes made, and they were of the C4 style, but were never sold to the public.)

c stands for corvette, 4 stands for 4th generation. there are currently 6 generations. you can just say c1, c2 ,c3, c4, c5, c6 to narrow down what gen vette your talking about within the corvette comunity c1- 53-62 c2- 63-67 c3- 68-82 c4- 83-96 c5- 97-05 c6- 06- so saying a 87 c4 corvette is just redundant.

c4 84-96 typo. no sold 83, about 40 were made all destroyed cept one in the national corvette muesam. quality issues and changing the plant over were main reasons.
