"Best of the C4 Corvette. The LT4 optional engine listed at 330HP is known to be very conservatively rated. As a metter of fact, a number of Dyno testers show this engine out-performing most LS1's. That really "butters the toast" of the early C5 owners. As the final year of the C4 I can say I prefer the styling over the newer models. Entry and exit is challenging with the high sills but once you are in you know you are in for a treat. I recommend anybody contemplating a C4, purchase a 1996 LT4. A well maintained LT4 is one of the few C4's that has not only stopped depreciating but is now starting to climb in value."
