Almost all manufacturers care about what Hyundai is doing, because they have a reputation of making good products very quick.

Why do you lie?
Time to fess up....I just can't believe anyone would be dissapointed in this car.
Not everyone who drives it would be sold but, they would still be impressed.

Yup

Hyundai's 2010 Genesis is faster
Says who?

350Z is faster
It should be. Chop the Camaro in half, and it'll be quicker, too...

any infinite V6 car is faster
A very broad statement...but also ask yourself how expensive those cars are?

Altima coupe is faster too i guess
I doubt that...

the new 2011 V6 mustang is faster
Yes it is. The old one was not, though.

The V6 camaro is only a showcar, it looks nice, that all i guess
I don't think you don't truly appreciate what your car can do. "Faster" is a relative term, where they're all FAST. And if that's all your concerned with: on paper who's faster...then I don't think anyone can say anything to console you.

But consider this -- the cars can't race themselves. They need a driver. Hone your skills and participate in some track events...I guarantee you'll have a new appreciation for your car AND a little more confidence in its abilities.



Someone's car will ALWAYS be faster...there are more important things to a car, though.

350Z is faster ( same as ^)

any infinite V6 car is faster ( smoked one. ) ( the g37 is a tad bit faster

Altima coupe is faster too i guess ( leave )

the new 2011 V6 mustang is faster ( yea its faster than us :( )

The V6 camaro is only a showcar, it looks nice, that all i guess

I believe he was talking about 2010/2011 models- the newest year model released for each car.

Obviously it is faster than a whole slew of cars from the 70s and 80s. But when someone goes to buy a new Camaro (V6) they aren't cross shopping and 1989 Corisica... lol or and "83 Cavilier.

The point of his post was the same as the point of YOUR original comment.

Point is: Your car has an impressive engine for what it is, but overall your car is heavy and slow. Just like our little V6s right??

lol.

Sorry man, but you asked to be burned back.

Wow... FPATT


To the OP keep in mind that when the 2010 v6 was launched, the mustang didn't have the v6 it has now. The chally needs a diet, and the genesis was just coming around at the same time. Now its just over a year later and the 2011 v6s are just coming off the line. When chevy designed/built this car, they didn't have as close of a competition as they do now with more powerful cars coming out daily. And as others have said, the v6 is a hell of a car, but its not the top dog. Now, that's not to say that gm won't tweak things ad make it even better. But remember that as soon as gm bumps the level up, then ford will top that then someone else will top that and the cycle continues. Another thing to keep in mind is that the majority of camaro buyers don't care about what other cars it can beat on the track or street. The car is marketed with horsepower in mind. Just like when the new mustang v6 came out it had 1 more hp than the 2010 v6 camaro was rated at. That one extra hp sells cars. And in the ongoing battle gm has bumped the power up on the v6 camaro

The point is, todays faster car is tomorrows second place. It is a never ending process.

V6 Camaro 2010 vs V6 Mustang 2010= A Camaro win for sure!!! I know I have beat several.
