Driving a Corvette should be an emotional experience, and the standard coupe deliver in spades. The 420-horspower LS2 V8 rumbles wonderfully, and the Vette intoxicates with its acceleration. It is a great American made race car still legally in the street. With this automatic transmission, the coupe thrills. And the convertible is plain wonderful. Drop the top on a nice day, blare the stereo, bluetooth phone, back camera, and you'll have what psychologists call a peak experience. It's a fantastic feeling and at those moments the Corvette more than justifies its truly capable high-performance sports cars.
