The 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sport has received a lot of love, with many calling it the greatest C7 Corvette variant yet. By combining the cornering and aerodynamic capability of the C7 Corvette Z06 and the naturally-aspirated power from the C7 Corvette Stingray, the Grand Sport represents the best of both worlds.
Deservingly, AutoGuide has named the C7 Corvette Grand Sport its Reader’s Choice Sports Car of the Year. This follows the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, which was named the publication’s green car of the year.
