So here we are, the much heralded 2020 Toyota Supra is FINALLY a reality and posts some pretty impressive numbers.

Featuring a 335 HP BMW 3.0 liter inline-six, an 8 speed automatic transmission and weighing in at 3480 lbs. It can make the run from 0-60 in just 4.1 seconds. But this all comes at a price.

With a base price of $50,920 the Supra is treading into some deep waters. Step up to the 3.0 Premium trim level and you are at $54,920 and you gain Apple CarPlay and a JBL sound system to boot.

Step up again to the limited Launch Edition and you are sitting at $56,180 and no performance increase.

While this all compares pretty well against the Supra’s sibling the BMW Z4 which commands nearly $65,695, but also comes with 382 HP. Those extra ponies are worth something right? BTW the Z4 is estimated to run 0-60 in about 3.9 seconds. Most can agree the Supra is the better deal.

But we can’t help but wonder if the is a better bargain out there for your buck… Actually it turns out there might be.

Take a run over to Chevrolet and take a look at the base Corvette 1LT with 455 HP with a Bose audio system standard. You also gat a 7 speed rev matching manual transmission for the purist in you. That 0-60 run now takes you just 3.7 seconds and it all comes in at $56,995 with destination charges.

So a top line Supra is essentially the same price as the faster 1LT Corvette? You can make all of the arguments you want, but simply put the new Supra only comes one way performance wise. Take on an impromptu stop light challenge with a base Corvette and you are history. Also if you are really into performance the Corvette will take you to levels this Supra can only dream of just by checking off the option boxes.

Still think that new Supra is the best bang for your buck?
