Which sports car is named after a naval warship?


Kelly R Smith:
The most common perception of a corvette is that of a popular sports car, but for marine enthusiasts, corvettes have been a significant component of naval forces across the world for decades. In 1953, General Motors unveiled their prototype of their new Chevrolet sports car, which was named after the Naval Warship called the “Corvette.” Myron Scott is credited for naming the car after this small and maneuverable warship. During the Age of Sail, these warships were smaller than a frigate, but larger than a sloop-of-war. They were the smallest class of vessels that could be considered a warship.
