Surely, You Must Be Joking
First, we have no Shirleys on staff. But when it comes to Tesla vs. Corvette, consider the pricing. The 2020 Corvette has a starting price of $59,995 (destination included), but our well-optioned example totaled $80,660. Its naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V8 still uses pushrods, and its baritone exhaust ensures proper playback of the 495 horsepower.
The only way the Model Y could be more different is if it were a minivan. This Tesla is an all-wheel-drive and all-electric small SUV. Yet it’s the Performance version, with the no-cost Performance upgrade, making it the Model Y Performance Performance (this option is now included in the trim level). The base price for ours was $61,125 — or $1,130 more than the base C8. After a few options, ours totaled $68,700.
