For example, the Cobra is faster in a drag, (in relative terms - they're both freaking fast), but the ZL1 can have better race track times because of steering and breaking, etc.

I just don't know if I consider this head-on competition. Cobra owners certainly aren't sweating over the Camaros. They're not consistently out-performing the Mustangs.
Isn't it all about what you want out of the vehicle of your choice? If one brand doesn't suit you, there are others that are willing to take your money too.
