Not a girl ride

A. Who the hell is eslock and why are you quoting their opinion as fact.

B. Find a Girl that owns a 370z. I suggest you start at their forums, but even then it might take a while.

I have a 350z.Great car but its not the new Camaro! The Camaro is twice the car, just check out the numbers and the price of the camaro which offers more features for your dollar.I only bought the Z because Chevy had nothin to fill the gap between the Vette and other chevys that I would not drive. Once the Camaro came along ,....it was BAMMMM I cant wait. Im like a kid at christmas, cant sleep!!!

without a doubt, and to the person who called the 350 a chick car, I've yet to come across a single chick driving a 350z- they may be out there, but not nearly as many as I've seen 'American Muscle' (i.e. Mustangs, and soon to be 2010 Camaro)

Wow, this thread is going nowhere... Let's actually look at a raw numbers comparison of the 370z and Camaro SS. I'm going to take all the performance figures from one place, I'll use motortrend since they seem to be fairly consistent. I'll get most of the hardware specs from edmunds.com since they include a lot of info but i won't use their test data because it seems like each article on the 370z from them has wildly different numbers.
Note: I will be using specs, data, and pricing for 370z with the sport package. The upgraded brakes, wheels/tires, and addition of an LSD mean this is the most comparable to the Camaro SS.

I'm pretty sure Motortrend uses a 1 foot rollout for their 0-60 tests, so add about .3 seconds to these numbers for real world performance.
0-60 370z: 4.7s
0-60 Camaro: 4.6s

1/4 Mile ET/MPH 370z: 13.3/105.7
1/4 Mile ET/MPH Camaro: 13.0/111

Skidpad G 370z: .99g
Skidpad G Camaro: .90g

Slalom 370z: 69.0 (edmunds.com)
Slalom Camaro: 68.6 (edmunds.com)

60-0 370z: 106ft
60-0 Camaro: 105ft (manual transmission)


370z Weight: 3232lbs
Camaro Weight: 3860lbs

HP/TQ 370z: 332/270
HP/TQ Camaro: 426/420

Camaro 1SS MSRP: $31,040
Similarly equipped 370z: $32,930 (370z with Sport Package)

Camaro 2SS MSRP: $34,225
Similarly equipped 370z: $37,460 (370z Touring with Sport Package)

In the real world a friend of mine has a '06 GTO that is stock except for a diablo sport tune. His car is faster than his friend's 370Z.
Could be a driver issue, but the runs that they have made the GTO wins.
