"In his new book, Corvette From the Inside, former chief engineer Dave McLellan follows the development of Corvette from its inception through ideas for its future. Although McLellan contributed significantly to three Corvette generations, he is perhaps most often associated with the 1984-96 fourth generation, with the awesome 1990-95 ZR-1 considered his crowning achievement. Here is an excerpt (abridged) from McLellan's ZR-1 chapter. We pick up with the story just before the car's unveiling in Geneva."
