Chevrolet, Corvette, Camaro or Chevy, are brands of automobile, which is a part of General Motors. One co-founder, Louis Chevrolet, was a racing driver, born on December 25, 1878 in La Chaux de Fonds, Switzerland. The other co-founder, William C. Durant, had been forced out of GM in 1910 and wanted to use Louis Chevrolet's designs to rebuild his own reputation as a force in the automobile industry. On November 3, 1911, Chevrolet entered the automobile market to compete with the Ford Model T. A year later (1912), the 'Classic Six' was introduced. The 'Classic Six' was a 5-passenger touring sedan equipped with a 299 cubic inch (4.9 L), 6 cylinder engine capable of taking the car to a top speed of 65 miles per hour (105 km/h). Chevrolet first used its 'bowtie' logo in 1913. In 1916, Chevrolet was profitable enough to allow Durant to buy a majority of shares in GM. After the deal was complete in 1917, Durant was president of General Motors, and Chevrolet was merged into GM, becoming a separate division. Master, A model name of Chevrolet used in the 1930's.
