But they are. They aren't steel. Steel coil springs were used on rail cars before Otto invented his engine. Glass fiber springs however were only used on cars for the first time in the late 70s. That makes the technology new. The way the Corvette uses a cantilevered spring is different than a buggy thus the suspension design isn't old. It's new. So we have new spring technology combined with a new way of using the spring. Which part was old?
The idea of a leaf spring.
It's like propellers. The first were wood. Making them out of newer, more modern materials does not make them new tech.

So the only old part is a spring that works by bending. I guess that is about as old as springs come. Cave paintings show pictures of people hunting with cantilevered springs with a string tied to either end.
I guess you are right... if you ignore all the reasons why the Corvette's leaf spring is entirely unlike the truck axle and leaf spring that people scorn.
I trust you understand that not only is it not primitive, it's actually very good and advanced.
