The corvette in many forms was supposed to be the American sports car. There have been and still are many high hp power plants from the factory. Does that make them muscle cars? There’s no denying the fact that many cars were muscle cars such as ss camaros, chevelles, chargers and challengers and many other late 60s and 70s classic muscle cars still exist, but what makes a car a muscle car? My 2002 C5 corvette to me is a fantastic very capable fast and powerful sports car, with targa top roof making it almost convertible, but it is much more refined than a hard to control almost brutal muscle car. Dont get me wrong, I love both types for what they are! I also own a big late 70s land yacht which I also adore and a big American 4 x 4 too. I love them all as they are as different from each other as you can get, but each is quenticentially American and I love them all !

Ive never really understood what those Sports car / Pony car / Muscle car categories are about, i guess it must all make sense to Americans. All i know is, in my opinion the c1/c2/c3 Vettes are among the best looking cars ever made and they make a beautiful lazy American V8 rumble, thats good enough for me. Personally, im not really bothered what category they fit into.
