The new Chevrolet Corvette was one of the most anticipated sports cars of 2020 but has, unfortunately, had to overcome many hurdles including a delayed launch, a cut in production, and then a complete production halt thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. Although production is set to resume soon, getting your hands on one could still prove difficult.

Typically, the Corvettes that were available averaged closer to $70,000 rather than its starting MSRP of $59,995. If you weren’t able to bring home a new C8, here are some competitors that have similar prices. Some are even eligible for additional deals and discounts to help bring down the cost.

2020 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

The ZL1 is the highest trim available on the popular Camaro coupe. It comes equipped with a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that puts out 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Given its high power output, the ZL1 presents a great value given its price. It comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Pricing on the ZL1 starts at $67,690, including destination. Currently, it is also eligible for a $1,500 rebate.

The F-TYPE is one of the newer sports car options as Jaguar has only been offering it since 2014. However, buyers have a lot of options when it comes to powertrain.

It is only available with an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Pricing for the R-Dynamic starts at $85,325. Although one of the more expensive on the list, the V8 option is eligible for a $10,000 rebate, bringing it closer to Corvette territory. If you pass on the savings, you can finance for 0% APR for 72 months, a rarity on a sports car like this.
