Which one has a better 0-60 time and which one do you think looks better?

I bet when you consider the inital cost, gas mileage, maintaince (battery replacement) you can probably operate the v-6 Camaro cheaper. It will be much more enviromently friendly when you consider the battery waste.

The Camaro is the better choice all the way around!

the prius is a waste of money. gas/electric hybrids are a waste of money and technology. the volt has it set up right. electric motors powering the car all the time with a small motor to recharge the batteries.

and to add to that, the reason it is so much better is because you waste the most amount of gas during acceleration. the way the volt setup works is that the gasoline motor revs up to its optimum power making/fuel efficient rpm and runs at that rpm till the batteries are charged back up.

with the prius, part of the time, you are using the electric motors, some times you are using the gasoline motor. wasteful piece of junk. its just that america is f$*#ing retarded sometimes and the prius was a gift from above when it came out even tho its not that great to begin with.

Well give this thread the prize for the WORST topic EVER.
To compare ANY Camaro and the PreASS in the same thread is inexcusable!!!

Ok, lets compare.

Camaro V6 0-60, 5.9 seconds.
Prius 0-60, 11.3 seconds.


Um... which is lower?

Ok, we'll try again.

Camaro -



Prius -



This thread fails.

I think hes just trying to get a reaction because there's no way he can be serious, BTW who are the retards that voted for the Prius what do we have here environmentalist infiltration? Studies show Hybrids like this take almost as much energy to manufacture than they save, you have to use it for at least 5 years or something like that to start saving hydrocarbons. Same goes for money savings on fuel. These people think all this electricity we use is nuclear, only 20% is the majority of the rest is fossil fuels. If your realy concerned about the environment just get a high MPG vehicle and drive less.
