Description

GTA 1 — GTA 2

In GTA 1, the Stinger based on the 1968-1972 Chevrolet Corvette (the name is a reference to the Corvette Stingray). In GTA 2 it's based on the 1963 Corvette Split-Window. It can only be found in the Industrial District of Anywhere City, and gives the ElectroFingers power-up when crushed. Both iterations of handle great, respond well, and stick to the road.

GTA III — GTA Vice City Stories

In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, the Stinger appears in hard-top and convertible form. Its performance is better than most vehicles, but is the least powerful of all the 2-door sports cars, with little tendency to drift. Its Yakuza variant, the Yakuza Stinger, handles better and is all-wheel-drive, as opposed to the stock cars, which are rear-drive. The Stinger in both games resembles a Porsche Boxster or a Toyota MR2 Spyder.

In GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories, it resembles a 1968-1973 Ferrari Daytona Spyder, an apparent homage to Sonny Crockett's Ferrari Daytona Spyder replica, yet another one of Vice City's references to Miami Vice.

A working name given to the Stinger in Grand Theft Auto III is "Shark", as evidenced in the "official" website for Capital Autos [1].
