I fully get what the OP is saying. Sure if you wanted a faster car then buy the V8. But that can be said for the other models too.

He wants to know why it seems the Camaro is at the back of the pack in the performance arena.

I will say that I believe it is because the V6 model of the Camaro wasn't focused on performance at all, it is all about the look.


LS/LT = Look fast
SS= Be fast

Is the 2010 Mustang old? They are still on dealers lots. If you wanted a performance car, you started with the wrong base. Besides, what track are you racing at?

Some of them yeah...but not all IMO.

The 1990-1992 350tpi cars (1990 was still an iroc) could run as low as 13.9-14.0 in stock form and trapped as high as 98-99.

It would spank every 305 iroc no doubt. The 350 tpi in the 86-89 cars had a little less horsepower and would be about equal with the new 6. But I would think the 90-92 had an edge.

You're about a half second too optimistic.

Perspective man perspective!

We have established it's not the slowest or fastest.

The fun is trying to make it FASTER!

Turbo or Supercharge it!

2011 V6 camaro vs 2011 V6 mustang. fair enough? camaro still lose.

and i am not comparing the V6 to performance car, i am comparing it to other cars that are in the same arena, Other V6s, not an SRT8 or SS

v6 challenger no contest but sweet car

Hyundai's 2010 Genesis is faster it's a Hyundai, who cares

2010 350Z is faster price?

any infinite V6 car is faster price?

Altima coupe is faster too i guess really? no contest in design comparison though

the new 2011 V6 mustang is faster yes, I drove one. Still not prettier than the Camaro! but props to Ford anyway, sweet ride

The V6 camaro is only a showcar, it looks nice, that all i guess showcar? No one hangs out the window of their car taking pictures on their cell phones of V6 Mustangs, Genesis coupes, Altimas and Infinities. Have you driven your 1LT hard?

Time to sell your 1LT dude!

I have a 2011 traverse with the same engine as your camaro, and you would still beat me.

Does that make you feel any better?

Hyundai's 2010 Genesis is faster it's a Hyundai, who cares so you are bias?

2010 350Z is faster price? no idea, still a V6?

any infinite V6 car is faster price? maybe due to luxury crap?

Altima coupe is faster too i guess really? no contest in design comparison though so only looks

the new 2011 V6 mustang is faster yes, I drove one. Still not prettier than the Camaro! but props to Ford anyway, sweet ride and only looks
