No one ever questioned the Corvette's performance cred; its interior, however, always seemed like an afterthought. The Corvette Stingray is an achievement not because of its wild stats (0–60 in 3.8 seconds) and longer, wider body but because there's detail between the doors: Carbon fiber and hand-wrapped leather accent everything; plush seats come in standard or track style. Under the Stingray's hood is a new 6.2-liter V-8 that churns out 455 hp and gives it 460 lb-ft of torque. In other words, it finally feels like GM built the best car possible – and it's the one we were waiting for. [from $51,000; chevrolet.com]
