Dodge Charger SRT and Challenger SRT buyers consider the Chevy Corvette more than any other alternative
Research indicated that buyers who were considering a performance version of the Charger or Challenger were also cross-shopping the new Chevy Corvette more than any other model, Kuniskis said.
Surprising given that the Chevy Corvette isn’t technically a muscle car? A little, but ultimately it just means that Charger SRT and Challenger SRT buyers are interested in fast, loud, American muscle. The Corvette fits that bill as well as the two Dodge performance cars.
It should also be noted that the C8 Corvette is the biggest performance car to launch in recent memory. It therefore goes without saying that it will be on minds of anyone looking for a fast car. We’d wager that many Porsche 911, Mercedes-AMG, and BMW M buyers are also taking a quick look at the Corvette.
The new C8’s mid-engine layout and the improvements made to the model’s handling and agility make it a true sports car in every sense. It’s not just fast in a straight line. Moreover, its design is less eccentric than before.
But again, this new C8 is something else and one of the things that was most flaunted about it was how accessible its performance is. That sticks in your mind and when you’re researching a new SRT model, your brain will surely send you a note.
You know, that Corvette is basically the same price. Do you really need back seats Steve?
Of course the problem is getting a C8 Corvette that isn’t ridiculously priced.
