2021 Corvette Wins eNVy Award As Best Premium Sports Car4
The 2021 Chevy Corvette C8 Stingray follows up on the initial 2020 model year with a few small changes and updates, once again offering impressive mid-engine performance with a crossed-flag badge on the nose. Now, the 2021 Corvette has been recognized as the Best Premium Sports Car in the recent InMoment eNVy Awards.
The latest InMoment eNVy Awards are focused exclusively on 2021 model-year vehicles, with winning vehicles delivering on buyer expectations with regard to five key metrics, including comfort, quality, performance, safety, and ownership cost. The award winners are determined thanks to new vehicle buyers’ independent feedback collected in the InMoment New Vehicle Customer Study (NVCS), with 290,000 domestic and 50,000 Canadian responses collected from buyers and lessees of approximately 325 different vehicle types.
Based on these criteria, the 2021 Corvette took the win as the Best Premium Sport Car in the Premium Vehicle Segment. Notably, the accolade designates the 2021 Corvette as a “Repeat Winner” of the InMoment eNVy Award.
The 2021 Corvette wasn’t the only General Motors vehicle recognized in the recent awards. Other winners include the 2021 GMC Yukon, which was recognized as the Best Large SUV in the Mass Market Vehicle Segment, as well as the Chevy Silverado 3500HD as the Best Full-Size Heavy Duty Pickup in the Mass Market Vehicle Segment. Chevrolet was also among the top-two vehicle brands, securing three wins total.
The overall winner in the recent eNVy awards was the Genesis G90.
With regard to the 2021 Corvette specifically, motivation is sourced from the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, rated at 495 horsepower at 6,450 rpm and 470 pound-feet of torque at 5,150 rpm when equipped with the optional factory performance exhaust system. Output is routed rearwards through the GM eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
Under the skin, the 2021 Corvette rides on the GM Y2 platform, while production takes place exclusively at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky.

Well deserved. Go Corvette
I have a 2021 , delivered in March of that year. And I agree. This car really is great, I have zero complaints.
My 2021 has a window sticker of $76,811 USD. And that is what I paid. I think this was an incredible value.
But after going to several car gatherings and being out and about and talking to many people that come up
to talk about the car, not one single person has ever asked if I would sell it. So I hope it is desirable enough
that I can move it when it is time. I had to wait more than a year from first order to delivery, having gotten bumped from 2020, having to place order a second time, and deal with increased prices of some options.
2021 Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic 2LT ❤️
Waited over one year started with 2020 then it rolled over to 2021 with one dealer had to put up $3k for them to order, I got tired of promises they never kept and didn’t order even after my deposit 10/3/2020.
Went to another dealer on 12/5/20 they ordered mine that same day at MSRP.
It arrived on 3/24/21 👍 the first dealer finally submitted my order 4/1/2021.
I let it ride up until it was shipped then pulled out of the deal and got my deposit back.
I’m only averaging about 80 miles a month on mine, this is my first Corvette at age 68 now 69.
So many dealers taking advantage of Corvette buyers.
