With a base price of $58,900 ($59,995 with destination fee), the new mid-engine Corvette C8 proves that GM delivered on its sub-$60k promise. I cannot think of another car that could come close to the performance of the Corvette C8 for less than $60k. I remind you that it can reach 60 mph in just over 3 seconds and reach a top speed of 194 mph. The only car that can come close to it in terms of performance is the Caterham Seven 480 that can accelerate to 60 mph in about the same time as a base Corvette C8, but for $51,000. Yet, I am not sure that all of you would agree that the Caterham Seven is a regular car. Anything else in this price bracket - including the 335-horsepower Supra, 405-horsepower M2, or 300-horsepower 718 Cayman - is too slow in terms of performance. As we reported earlier, for $59,995, you get a base 2020 Corvette C8 1LT, that comes with eight-way powered, leather-covered seats, Brembo brakes, a 12-inch instrument cluster, and an 8-inch central display. GM also offers the C8 Corvette Stingray in 2LT and 3LT guises for $67,295 and $71,945, respectively.
