The fourth-generation Corvette is the least desirable and least collectible of the series, but it's still a good performance car. The 1984 cars were sprung too stiffly for most tastes, and carried-over the “Cross-Fire” (often called “Misfire”) throttle-body fuel injection from the 1982 model. 1985 and later cars have the superior L98 350 V8 with Tuned-Port Injection. Convertibles were brought back in 1986 after an 11-year absence. The LED instrument panel can be troublesome and expensive to fix when it breaks, if you can find parts at all anymore. In general, most components are available, but computerized control systems mean fixing a C4 yourself isn't especially easy. The 1987 345-450 hp B2K Callaway twin turbo and the 1990-1995 405 hp ZR-1 models are the most desirable Corvettes in this era, but the various anniversary editions and the 1996 Grand Sport are also collectible.
