For about 5~6K, you can buy a procharger for the SS that will leave the Shelby smelling exhaust.

PLUS -- the Camaro is the hands down winner is looks.

I don't know why, but the mustang grill always reminds me of a poor animal who needs to be rescued or put out of it's misery.

Superior, don't know that I would have went there. I rather have a Camaro anyday. HP is about the only thing it has on the Camaro, and that can be easily fixed like you said. I prefer turbos, but the GT500 will certainly have its work cut out for it after the Camaro is FI, and what happens when you come up on that corner with that GT500. Ruh Roh!

You took a base GT500, with thousands in FordCantSellCars Incentives, and compared it to an optioned out Camaro?


Are you serious?


I understand you want to make them as even as possible... but you charged up extra $$ on a special paint job (which you cant even get with the GT500), a sunroof ??, and shiny wheels... None of which you would be getting on THAT GT500. You want to make a fair comparison, build the SAME car on both sites, and wait until GM releases the car so that you can factor in THEIR incentives.



Holy Crapola.

My apologies. Putting Ford and superior in the same sentence is and oxymoron isn’t it? LOL

The Ford is cheaper because the next year GT500 is going to be much faster then the current one... it's still a mustang and i'd take the srt or ss over it any day.

The GT500 is for the people that want to buy a name. The same deep pocket'd individual who obviously hasnt researched into the SS vs. GT500, thus not understanding that the price difference doesnt justify the (barely) increased performance.
