The C4 Corvette was introduced in March 1984 and ran through 1996. With a larger interior, fully digital instrumentation, and sleek modern look the C4 Corvette was the most dramatically different Corvette since the 1963 Sting Ray. The T-top roof of the previous model were replaced by a full Targa roof and the hatchback opening became a part of all C4 Corvettes.
Everything mechanical about the C4 Corvette was significantly better. The suspension system used composite transverse leaf springs, the steering was by rack-and-pinion for the first time, the brakes were oversized discs, and the frame featured a large aluminum C-section beam that made for a stiffer structure. Initially all C4 Corvettes came with an automatic transmission, the same four speed that was first introduced in 1982. In a later run of the C4 a Borg-Warner t-10 four speed manual transmission was available. The manual transmission of the C4 Corvette featured an overdrive unit between the transmission and the driveshaft and would engage in gears 2, 3 and 4.
