In automobile history, there may not be a single type of vehicle that is more fun to drive than a sports car. This is due to the simple fact that they have always been faster, while also having the best styles possible. This is largely why they have always been the most expensive type of car to purchase. There is perhaps no other car more popular than the Chevrolet Corvette. However, these last few years have shown a few red flags with the series. Thus, it may be time for buyers to look at other sports cars.
In this article, we’ll be looking at 20 sports cars we’d rather buy than the 2020 Corvette. These vehicles come from a variety of different manufacturers, as well as decades. This will effectively show just how amazing the history of sports cars is. However, at the end of the day, these cars all deserve more recognition than the 2020 Corvette.
202020 FORD MUSTANG GT350
The 2020 Ford Mustang GT350 is a sports car that we all want. It’s clear that the car manufacturer has placed a major emphasis on speed. It’s expected to have the ability to reach blistering speeds with ease as a result of this. In having a better overall reputation than the Corvette as well, the Mustang GT350 is a better option.
191974 PONTIAC GTO
The 1974 Pontiac GTO may be an old sports car, but we’ll take it any day. This is truly one of the greatest cars to have ever been put on the primary market. Due to this clear fact, it has such an immense following by us car enthusiasts. Therefore, it should not come as a surprise that we would want it in our collections.
181990 LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH
The 1990 Lamborghini Countach is the type of classic sports car that every individual should try to purchase. It had a rather unique appearance to it, but it works very well. Also, in terms of its overall speed, it still would easily keep up with today’s fastest cars. Thus, why not go with something different and get a Countach?
172019 MCLAREN 570S
The 2019 McLaren 570S definitely has been able to receive an extremely high amount of praise since its release. It deserves it entirely, as its engine is extremely strong. One cannot help but look at this car when they see it drive by, as it is truly magnificent. It definitely is a sports car to look into buying today.
162020 MERCEDES-BENZ SL CLASS
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz SL Class definitely is a better option than this year’s Corvette. This is due to the fact that it has a far better style to it and is far more reliable. In terms of its overall speeds, it is expected to reach 160 MPH without much trouble at all. Thus, this is definitely a high-performance car that is worth looking at.
152019 ASTON MARTIN DB11
The 2019 Aston Martin DB11 is another vehicle that buyers should took a glance at. It is quite clear that it is a top of the line vehicle, as this series has always been. Yet, what makes the 2019 version so intriguing is the fact that it has such a high level of dependability as well.
141992 DODGE VIPER
The 1992 Dodge Viper is widely considered to be one of the best sports cars of all-time. Therefore, we would take it over the 2020 Corvette anyday. That is not a knock on Chevrolet, but it’s clear that the Viper simply can’t be outmatched by the 2020 Corvette.
132020 SUBARU BRZ
If one is looking for a modern car with an insane amount of speed, the 2020 Subaru BRZ is a good choice. It’s far faster than the 2020 Corvette. This is due to the fact that its engine is significantly stronger. Thus, it would be a wise decision for one to go with the BRZ this year. It’s one of their best ones from the series, ever.
121961 JAGUAR E-TYPE
The 1961 Jaguar E-Type truly transformed the automobile world when it was released. Its level of dependability meshed immensely well with this vehicle’s ability to reach very high speeds. Although it’s much older than the modern Corvette, due to its overall significance, we would still choose this one over it.
112019 ACURA NSX
The 2019 Acura NSX was praised significantly during its time on the primary market and rightfully so. This vehicle was built in such an effective manner and has the ability to last its owners for at least 20 years. That being said, it makes sense to own one over the 2020 Corvette.
101964 FORD GT40
The 1964 Ford GT40 is one of the fastest cars in the history of automobiles, even though it’s very old. That alone should show you just how powerful this vehicle truly is. Also, this is why it would end up having such an important impact on the manufacturer’s success. This classic is worth purchasing, for sure.
92020 BMW M5
The 2020 BMW M5 is a top-of-the-line vehicle. It mixes speed with reliability, and this is what has allowed the series to be at the top of the automobile world for such a long time.
In terms of its positive reviews thus far, it should come as no surprise that we opt to go with it over the 2020 Corvette.
81968 FERRARI 250 GTO
The 1968 Ferrari 250 GTO is one of the most iconic sports cars in the history of automobiles. It truly helped the car manufacturer reach new heights in popularity after its release and that is completely justifiable. It’s a collector’s item today and keeps up with modern cars without any trouble.
72019 AUDI R8 V10
The 2019 Audi R8 V10 received some of the best reviews after its release and rightfully so. This car is essentially perfect, as it’s not only extremely fast, but built very strongly too. People are also drawn to these vehicles because they’re absolutely stupendous in terms of their overall appearance.
62020 CHEVROLET CAMARO
To be entirely honest, it’s fair to state that Chevrolet has done better with the 2020 Camaro. It seems as though this car has far more potential to last longer than this year’s Corvette.
Most people lean towards the Corvette series, but it’s time to give the sidekick more attention this year. It deserves it far more.
51972 LAMBORGHINI MIURA
The Lamborghini Miura was a smashing success with its 1972 release. This vehicle would go on to receive an immense level of praise because of not only how fast it was, but also how strongly it was built. It ultimately can be deemed as one of the best sports cars to have been released because of this.
41970 TOYOTA 2000GT
The 1970 Toyota 2000GT is an old sports car, but seeing as how they perform, one would think they came out now. They definitely are extremely fast, which is why they would end up becoming so popular. However, the primary reason we’d go with this one is the impact it left on the automobile world.
32020 PORSCHE 911
The 2020 Porsche 911 is definitely the type of vehicle that us car enthusiasts need to get our hands on. It definitely has been built to reach high speeds, which is a necessity with this style of vehicle. Yet, the primary reason as to why we would choose it over the 2020 Corvette is because of how much better it is structured.
21969 CHEVROLET CORVETTE
Yes, we would take a 1969 Corvette over a 2020 version. This really should not come as a surprise, as the ’60s were simply the best time for this iconic series. There is something so much more alluring with the classic Corvettes in terms of its style as well. Thus, if you want a Corvette, buy an older one.
12020 TOYOTA 86
To conclude this list, we will look at the 2020 Toyota 86. This is a car that often is overshadowed a bit, but ultimately, this needs to change. This vehicle has been built so strongly and has the ability to reach amazing speeds. Toyota is also known for their immense level of reliability, so going with this car over the 2020 Corvette is the best move.
