Hyundai's 2010 Genesis is faster - Agreed it is faster however the V6 version also starts at about $2,000 more than the 1LS Camaro.

350Z is faster - Not a fair comparison given that the 350Z sold at a base price of about $35k without options. For that price you could have an SS with mods that would destroy it. Oh and the 350Z isn't even sold anymore and the 370Z is even more expensive.

any infiniti V6 car is faster - The least expensive Infinity coupe is the G37 which starts at $36,000. Again for that price you could have a modded SS or a turbo charged V6 Camaro that would absolute annihilate it.

Altima coupe is faster too i guess - The Altima V6 coupe starts at $27,000 ($5k more than the Camaro). They both do 0-60 in about 6 seconds. The Altima does weight quite a bit less however it also has less horsepower at just 270. It's close here but i'd be willing to bet the Camaro wins, especially if you modded a 1LS to equal the V6 Altima price.

the new 2011 V6 mustang is faster - I think this really comes down to a drivers race for the most part. I have driven a 2011 V6 Mustang and felt the engine to be really lacking. With that said the Camaro is better looking, and feels like a much more expensive car. The V6 Mustang feels cheap. Keep in mind that the V6 Camaro came out last year and made a laughing stock of Ford which is why they had to redo their engines for 2011 which had not really been changed since like 2005. It would be foolish to think GM would redo the engine on a car that's only a year old
this guy is a moron.i have a modded 2lt with cold air ,drag radials,suspension,and long tubes.it will outrun damn near every car you just named and will demolish most of them also

^ I'm pretty sure the V6 Accord Coupe is also a little bit faster especially on the freeway.

it really doesnt matter because for the price of mods you can save 5000 dollars compared to teh starting price of these cars and even if they are faster stock ,which only a couple he listed are ,it is very very close

Most mag's and internet chatter has them at mid 14's trapping at 100mph in the 1/4. But im not a Honda fan so I really don't care to argue this I just thought 100mph in the 1/4 from a 268 hp fwd accord is impressive and deserves to be mentioned.

Supposedly some people have gotten the newest V6 Accords into the 13.9 range bone stock. haven't seen it myself, but if so i would guess it is the manual models.

Man I'm glad I don't care about bs like this thread! More to life then worrying about how many cars are faster then yours. If thats it then I would think your into serious racing and wouldn't have a heavy car anyway and it would be modded to the hilt as it should be.
I'v been driving along time and never worried who was faster and I dont think many on the road do , nor been in but one street race either.
from my expierence don't worry about your v6 Camaro,it's plenty quick on the street where most of us live 99.99% of the time. Granted mine's not stock but I am impressed how fast the car moves out with light to moderate gas. I feel it is no slower under any similar driving situation on the street then my 98 z28 that has 335 rwhp, m6 and roadrace suspension. Only in a 0-60/ 1/4 mile would it obviously be faster. And that is the point, you don't drive with a stop watch or an x mas tree going green and you cannot tell or know you are going a 1/2 second faster or slower I dont think. It was all of this over 28 years of driving v8 Camaros that led me to buy the v6 as a daily driver when I wanted a new car, the v8 on the street, or a faster v6, is for me a waste of a car, a good waste, but still never be able to use it the way it was intented, not in L.A. traffic. The V6 is plenty fast, responsive and plane fun!!

I looked for him too just a little while ago. I know who you're talking about, but can't find his posts.

2011 Mustang v6, auto and has been averaging mid 14s. Right? Same guy?

I personally got mine because I love how it looks... I'm not a street or track racer and it is my daily driver. I'm military, and there are TONS of Challengers and every type of Mustang on this base. But very few Camaros in comparison. It's the only car that will still turn everyones head, V6 or V8. The beauty far surpasses the Challenger... which all it has going for it is the weird hood. And the mustangs, they haven't been redesigned much at all since the 90s.
