The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is sought after by many car enthusiasts, but when you look at the big picture, there are many better sports cars out there. First of all, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is far from cheap, with a starting price of $84,995, which isn’t exorbitant, but you have to take into account that you could be spending a lot more to get things fixed.
Owners of this sports car have complained about several different issues, such as paint jobs that chip off really fast, rear-end blowouts, suspension issues, and steering problems. This year, we are spoiled for choice when it comes to high-performance sports cars, and we don’t need to break the bank either.
Our favorite is probably the 2020 Toyota Supra, the result of a collaboration between the Japanese automakers and BMW. Today, we have compiled a list of 15 sports cars we would buy instead of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. Let’s go!
15. 2020 Rimac C_Two ($2 million)
After many prototypes – seventeen to be exact – The Rimac C_Two is an electric hypercar that will be released at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show this coming March. In total, 150 will be produced, with an exorbitant price tag of $2 million a piece. This car is an absolute bullet, managing to reach 60 miles per hour in just 1.9 seconds.
14. 2020 Acura NSX ($157,500)
The Acura NSX is an everyday sports car with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 and three electric motors. It is able to produce 573 horsepower, and can reach a speed of 60 miles per hour in 3.9 seconds. The greatest advantage of this sports car over its rivals is probably the Quiet Mode, which gives total discretion by going electric-only.
13. 2020 Toyota Supra ($50,000)
The 2020 Toyota Supra is easily one of the best sports cars of the year. It is part-BMW, as it was produced by Toyota in collaboration with the Bavarians, and they managed to produce a high-performance sports car with an affordable price tag of only $50,000. This one can outrun much more expensive cars such as the Porsche 718 Cayman S.
12. 2020 Polestar 1 ($156,000)
The Polestar 1 is a two-door hybrid coupe that can either run on electricity, on a supercharged turbo engine, or on both. In total, it is able to produce 619 horsepower, which is enough to make its main competitors such as the Porsche 911 jealous. Only 1,500 will be produced, and it costs $156,500.
11. 2020 Tesla Roadster ($200,000)
In the last couple of years, Tesla has been the name on everybody’s lips, and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change any time soon. The 2020 Tesla Roadster was first unveiled as a concept three years ago, but it will be released this year, and the brand promises an insane range of 620 miles on one charge.
10. 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ($59,995)
In January of 2020, the very first production Stingray was sold for a whopping $3 million at an auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. Soon, it will be entering production, and with orders already pre-filled, they should arrive by Summer 2020. However, if you’re after the top trim, you need to add around $12,000 to the base price.
9. 2020 Porsche 911 ($113,300)
The Porsche 911 might just be the German automaker’s most iconic car, with the first ever released 56 years ago. Compared to last year’s version, it looks pretty much the same, but under the hood, it has been massively upgraded. It has 23 horsepower more, and it is nearly half a second quicker to reach 60 miles per hour.
8. 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata ($25,730)
The Mazda MX-5 Miata is a legendary sports car that is both affordable and powerful, offering great value for your buck. In 2020, it has been voted the “best convertible to buy” by The Car Connection. Admittedly, it’s not as quick as some of its rivals, with a 0 to 60 mile per hour speed of 6.5 seconds, but it’s insanely fun to drive.
7. 2020 Alpine A110 ($73,685)
The Alpine A110 is an incredibly light sports car that can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just over 4 seconds. The A110 was first unveiled to the public in 2016 at the Alpine Vision Contest in Monaco, and although the French brand hasn’t produced a car since 1995, this looks like it might become a top car in its segment.
6. 2020 Toyota GT86 ($28,015)
If you’re looking for a sports car but feel like you can’t really afford an expensive one, with a starting price of only $28,015, the Toyota GT86 could be the perfect option for you. It is great around corners, and this year, they’ve introduced the TRD Package that comes with Brembo brakes and other high-performance equipment.
5. 2020 BMW Z4 ($49,700)
The 2020 BMW Z4 is great for anybody wanting a sports car that they can also commute with and drive everyday. Sports cars are not usually known for their comfort, but it’s not the case with the Z4. Just like most BMWs, it features a very high-quality interior, and it’s quicker than the Porsche Boxster S.
4. 2020 Jaguar F-Type ($61,600)
Although beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it’s difficult to deny that the Jaguar F-Type is a gorgeous, sleek super car with an awesome body kit. Looking like that, we would probably even excuse it if it was underpowered, but that’s certainly not the case. The base version comes equipped with a 3-liter V6 that’s able to produce 380 horsepower.
3. 2020 Lotus Evora ($96,950)
The best way to describe the 2020 Lotus Evora is that it’s a true driver’s car. It comes equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that’s able to produce 416 horsepower, and it’s a surprisingly comfortable vehicle, especially for one in this class. However, one thing that might put people off is its starting price of $96,650.
2. 2020 Ford Mustang ($27,765)
The Ford Mustang might just be the best muscle car of the century, and perhaps the most recognizable as well. In 2020, you have the option to get the Mustang with a new High-Performance package that adds a lot of excitement to your drive thanks to better suspensions and various other add-ons.
1. 2020 Chevrolet Camaro ($34,000)
If you’re looking for something powerful without breaking the bank, perhaps the 2020 Chevrolet Camaro, which has been voted “Best Performance Car to Buy in 2020” by The Car Connection, is the right choice for you. It can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in around four seconds, with an engine that’s able to produce 400 horsepower.
