Best Sports Car: Ford Mustang
Although the 2020 Corvette C8 is the hottest sports car of the year, we feel that the Mustang is the better choice for the average enthusiast. Not only for its low starting price (MSRP $26,670/$320 monthly lease) but its wide arrange of versions, engines, transmissions, and optional equipment. You can spec your Mustang as an ordinary two-door coupe (base 2.3-liter EcoBoost or V6), or you can have it as a fire-breathing street warrior (GT350/GT500); the choice is yours. Either way, you will get great value for your money and an iconic car in your driveway. Check your area`s availability on incentives here.
