8. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray – MSRP from $51,000
There’s been considerable hype surrounding the new C7 Corvette, but the final verdict is the car actually lives up to it. It’s the most potent version of America’s Sports Car yet, thanks to a new LT1 V8 engine that kicks out 455 horsepower. The 7-speed manual transmission helps the performance car achieve an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway, making the car that much more practical to own. In the past the Corvette has been legitimately criticized for having a low-rent interior, but the new version of the car ditches that for distinct and surprisingly comfortable accommodations.
