Whats Going To Happen????

Ok so I just saw the numbers on the new 2012 BOSS 302 Mustang and it is faster than a Corvette ZO6 around Laguna Seca! And thats just the regular version thats not including the Laguna Seca version which is said to be faster! We already know the ZL-1 Camaro isnt going to be enough to stop the BOSS so whens the Z28 coming out? Motortrend even says Ford is making another BOSS next year like the 1970 version that will be even faster. Always thought GM was faster but don't know what to think now. They need to build a Z28 to compete with the BOSS & it will need to be faster than most Corvettes too. Not sure how much longer Camaro will last if the performance isnt upped significantly! I'm trying to keep the faith but theres only so much waiting a persong can take!

There's no need to panic. GM's just getting started. I don't know what is coming out when, however, GM's not ignoring what's going on in Dearborn.

Please don't take this the wrong way, because I am in no way disparaging the LS or LT with the RS package, great looking car (I especially like the ABM w/white stripes in your avatar); having said that, why are you freaking? You obviously did not, for whatever reason (and to be honest it matters not a whit to me why), buy the highest performing Camaro, so why would you sweat a very nice performing Mustang.

Exactly what I was thinking.

Thanks the Aqua Blue Metallic in the Avatar is my Camaro and I love it! And also not wanting to make it seem like im abandoning Chevrolet because I NEVER will especially for a Ford! Also I do plan on buying another Camaro in the future maybe a Z28 or SS when the 6th gen comes out! I just want to make sure that Camaro stays on top of the performance side like it is the sales! Personally I dont care for the looks of the BOSS 302 or the 2010-11 Mustangs I dont like the rear ends at all so that alone would make me not buy one plus its a Mustang & Ford. I just think that its starting to get embarassing that a Mustang is passing Corvette in performance though! At least the ZO6 that is.

There will always be something faster eventually. The Camaro just looks so much better than a Mustang (or a Corvette for that matter). IMHO

Remember, that was an '06 Z06 it beat, the new carbon z06 beat it handily.
Point is though, Ford did a great job on the Boss. I am fairly sure that GM will raise the bar for the next Camaro,then in turn Ford will, etc. That is how it goes. If you are a fan of performance cars, these are exciting times.

To both.

If Ford didn't push back, and vise versa, think about what a lack of exciting cars we'd have a choice of. There's always a car that's faster, like SPEEDSTER'S

I agree with you that the Camaro is waaaay better looking than the Mustang and is actually a bit better looking than the Corvette even thats whats sooo awesome about it along with the great performance.

The Boss put's down some good number for sure, but look at it from a different perspective it took 5 yrs to do so (O6 ZO6). Given enough time even the top dog is replaced w/ something better and faster. GM may/ will answer back wait and see. Plus time is on my side, because I'm not in the market to buy for a few years.

If I could afford it I'd buy the Boss too. I totally get it!
But for now still waiting for a Z28.

I love street/track cars.

Checkers Anyone ?

It's just a checker's game.The only thing different is that the muscle car wars have been in semi- retirement for quite a few years.Now that there is an definite renewal in interest in well designed car's that also perform and handle well, the market place will drive the development of exciting new products.ALL manufacturers will provide us with new vehicle's that we can admire and appreciate no matter which company produces it.
Most all of us car guy's & gals appreciate good looks , performance in any brand.At least speaking for myself.So I say enjoy them all,camaro's,mustangs , challengers , vette's , et'c. for what they are. Personally I never thought we would see the offerings that we are seeing today.And that is a good thing !!!! in my blood .

I'd take the BOSS 302 over the SS. ZL1, though, is a different story.

If we see a Z28 in this platform, I'd like to see it with the following:
LS7
T6060 6-speed only
Decontented interior (cloth only, no sunroof, mechanical locks and crank windows, only options being AC and a factory radio)
Upgraded, lightweight brakes
Lightweight wheels in 18 or 20"
Track tuned suspension
Heritage color schemes
