2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS -- This generation of Camaro has handling that comes close to the best of Europe. And the SS version sports a 455-hp V8 that sounds truly wonderful. Updated for 2019, including a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Lexus RC F-- Nice build quality as always, plus a 467-hp V8 to play with. But the M4's chassis has a more pleasing and satisfying flow to it.
Used BMW M3 -- Thanks to depreciation, a V8-powered previous-generation M3 coupe or convertible could cost a fraction of the new M4's price. Source one through BMW's certified pre-owned (CPO) program for extra reassurance.
