Consumer Guide First Spin Recent buyers seeking an affordable sports car have often been forced to make a heart-wrenching choice: the open-air rush of a roadster, or the closed-roof security of a coupe.

But not any more.

The names “Corvette” and “Lingenfelter” have been closely related for a long time. It’s completely natural, then, that they’re paired up on the next few pages of this magazine.

The name Velie (pronounced vee-lee) might be written off as just another one of the more than 2000 American automobile makes that faded away in the early part of the twentieth century.

Ever since Fiat introduced the prototype 124 Spider at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show, critics have derided it as little more than a “badge-engineered” Mazda Miata. But although the 124 is indeed based on the Miata’s platform – and built at the same Japanese factory – that’s a vast oversimplification of the truth.
