Why Does the Corvette C4 Get So Much Hate?

Illustration for article titled Why Does the Corvette C4 Get So Much Hate?

Why does this car get so much flack from the automotive community? It looks pretty good, in my opinion, at least— the proportions are spot-on, with a long nose and a short tail. There's plenty of glass area, the wheel size is good for the car, and there's a line that follows through from front to back. While looks are entirely subjective, this seems to be pretty inoffensive, and by the book.

It's even got technology, apparently! And that's a good thing (as I recently found out, these two things called traction control and all wheel drive are excellent), and you could buy a 400HP twin-turbo Callaway option under warranty. From a dealership.

It holds the world record for the highest average speed for 24 hours/5000 miles at 175 mph, which means it's durable as fudge, and they have pop up headlights— so it's basically a Miata. I'm probably missing something here, but they weren't as underpowered as the C3s, and seemed to bring Corvette into the...well, late 20th century. Care to explain?
