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

So you reallllly think a car weighing 500 pounds more with a 60 HP deficit with a solid rear axle can beat a Z06 around any track?

I'm skeptical.

my projections for Camaro and Mustang until new models in 2014/2015:

Chevrolet:

LS/LT - 3.6L V6 (remains same except HP bumps until 6th Gen)
SS - 6.2L V8 (stays w/ HP bumps until 6th Gen than it gets C7 base engine)
Z28 - 6.2L V8 (same as Corvette Grand Sport w/ dry oil sump and HP bump)
ZL1 - 6.2L SC V8 (same, HP bumps until 6th Gen than it gets the new C7 Z06 engine)


Ford:

V6 - 3.7L V6 (remains same except HP bumps until new model V6)
GT - 5.0L V8 (remains same, gets HP bumps, will carry over to new model GT)
Boss 302 - 5.0L V8 (remains same, gets HP bumps, may appear in new GT)
GT500 - 5.4L SC V8 (stays w/ HP bumps until 2013 or 2014, new Mustang model gets SVT Cobra back instead of Shelby GT500 w/ 5.0L V8 that has some type of forced induction)


Competitors until 6th Gen camaro and new Mustang:

LS/LT vs V6 - (bread and butter models for both companies at bargain prices)

SS vs GT - (introductory performance models at reasonable prices)

Z28 vs Boss 302 - (stripped down, better handling/stiffer riding versions of SS and GT modles w/ higher performance parts, but truly meant for the road course)

ZL1 vs GT500 - (fastest and most prestigious models for both nameplates, supercar like performance at an affordable price, track stars that are more than capable on road courses too)
