There were many changes made for the 1985 Corvette models. That year was a significant milestone in Corvette history. The most significant change from the previous year was the uncomfortable ride. Chevrolet solved this by using a softer rear spring and softening the spring rates. Gone and never coming back, was the Cross-fire Injection System that was now replaced with the new Tuned- Port injection system built by Bosch. This new fuel delivery system featured a revised intake manifold and provided an individual fuel injector for each cylinder. The new L98 now had horsepower that was increased from 205 HP to 230HP with no fuel economy penalty. Car and Driver magazine announced that the 1985 Corvette was Americas fastest production car with a top speed of 150 MPH. In racing, Corvette won all six SCCA Showroom Stock endurance races, and it also won the series championship. The total production for the 1985 model year was 39,729.
