1996 Corvette Grand Sport
The Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport was introduced in 1996 to commemorate the end of the C4 design. The name 'Grand Sport' was a tribute to the Grand Sport of 1963. Production was limited to only a thousand and all were given sequential identification numbers. Of the 1000 produced 810 were coupes and 190 were convertibles.
The Grand Sport was equipped with the LT4 engine which produced a respectable 330 horsepower and 340 foot-pounds of torque. There was a Grand Sport emblem on the engine's throttle body. There was only one color offered and that was Admiral Blue with a white center stripe. Black five spoke wheels were standard.
Today the 1996 Grand Sport owners refer to them as "Skunks"
