The 1999 Chevrolet Corvette is perhaps the most popular, most well-known, and most award-winning U.S.-based sports car. Production began in 1953. All models use a two-door coupe or convertible body style with either a front-engine rear-drive or a front mid-engine rear-drive layout. Furthermore, the 1999 has won its share of honors, contains an extremely powerful engine, and sells for a lower price than most cars with similar performance.

The 1999 Chevrolet Corvette has a sharp, wedge-shaped profile with headlights inside the hood, which rise when turned on. The body sits low to the ground. The rear end looks flat with rounded taillights. Some exterior options and features include heated mirrors, an optional glass rear window on the base, standard dual exhaust, power door mirrors, and front fog lights as an option on the base.
The 1999 Corvette seats two in bucket seats with plenty of legroom, but getting in and out can be difficult due to the low ground clearance.

A power passenger seat, automatic temperature control, and memory settings for the seats provide options for the base.
