[VIDEO] C8 Corvette Stingray Jumps All Over a Tuned 2020 Supra


In addition to the Chevrolet Corvette going Mid-Engine in 2020, another sports car with a historic lineage finally made its return to showrooms in the form of the 2020 Toyota Supra. Although facing some criticism as a rebadged BMW Z4, the Supra is still an exciting car and one that does compete with the new Mid-Engine Corvette with winning over the younger demographics in the marketplace. Early demand for the Supra helped to push the MSRP from $49,990 up to the $60,000 mark which is where the C8 Corvette base model begins.

We found this video over at Autoevolution between a Toyota Supra and the 2020 Corvette. Where usually the Corvette is at a horsepower deficit in some of the previous match-ups we’ve shared, this time the Stingray is on top with its stock 495 horsepower while the Supra offers a 3.0L turbocharged straight-six that delivers 335 hp. Although that horsepower rating will rise to 382 for 2021 model year, that doesn’t help this Toyota as it faces off again the Stingray in several dig races captured on the street.

  1. Well…THAT was kinda embarrassing. Maybe if he had paid $20K over sticker it would beatthe Vette.

  2. Good run for the C 8 I hope to have mine soon since the plant will open May 26, 2LT Z51

  3. My god, what an ugly ass car from Toyota. A Z4 with a hangover. And the same price?? WOW!! Dude in the Vette should pay attention. Supra is a turd. The Mopars can sure smoke the tires, that’s about all they can do though. Chevy wins again or I should say still.

  4. For a while, these waste of gasoline comparisons between a Supra and a Corvette are interesting and will get thumbs one way or the other (viewership) even though it is an apple and oranges comparison. But, Tuners are going to tune, teens and post-teens have their interests. Corvette can not convince all these fans of other cars to totally abandon them. Some view it as a challenge to attempt to modify their stock car (at considerable cost) to attempt to beat a car that merely needs to be broken in to hand them their lunch while at the same time, “cleaning their clock.” C8 have more fun punching above their weight rather than “playing down” to their “competition.” Dollars well spent? C8 LT1 with Kooks headers and modified exhaust is relatively inexpensive way to beat almost everything out there, with a projected hourse power/torque gains to about 520/485 (projected conservatively). This is to say nothing of various twin turbo set-ups which will take the car to outrageous horse power without even having to wait for a Z06, etc. AF
