For years the company fought neck and neck with Ford for the market lead. The Corvette from 1953 is until today the most successful American sports car. Also the butterfly wing shaped tail fins of the 60ies are unforgotten. In the beginning 80ies they cooperated with Toyota to become more competitive. Since2010 Chevrolet is the entry model of General Motors. Until 2016 Chevrolet will give up the business in Western Europe. In contrast the brand brings now new models o the Chinese market.
