What Nissan 370Z Fans Think Of The Camaro!

I was surfing the net last night looking at other forums to see their reaction to the Camaro and I came across and interesting forum for the new 370Z. They sure don't think to much of our Camaro they think it is an overweight porker that's powr to weight ratio is absurd in a negative way! I quote one of the members here whose name is Joker57676.

Joker57676: PS: "I was seriously considering the Camaro but lurking on Camaro5.com cured me of ever wanting one. If the members of that site are typical Camaro owners, I don't want to be lumped together with those annoying, childish "enthusiasts." Never have I ever run across a bigger group of fanboys blind to reality."

This gentleman obviously doesn't think much of our forum either! I'm linking the whole Camaro post from their forum here if you're interested, some of them respected the Camaro in their posts, but most will have to be taught a lesson first hand as soon as we receive our cars!

Actually their 0-60 times have been tested to be 4.7 sec, the truth is the Nissan 370Z specs are pretty damn close, from what I've seen on Chevy's new Camaro site, to the Auto V8 SS. The best 370Z 1/4 mile I've seen in a test is 13.2 sec. The truth is they have a great car at a similiar price, but they just beleive our car is by far inferior to theirs! They will find out this is not true soon!

The 370Z is a hot little car, to be sure. It is just too damn small for me, but it is fast.

Their comments aren't as bad as I thought. Its true, the Camaro is fairly heavy to be considered a "sports" car. The interior also leaves something to be desired for many people who value the "feel" of interiors.

It does say something though that they think the numbers are a lie, because they sound too good. 29 highway, 14,000+ preorders. If they can't even believe it, GM must be doing something right

, see the differnece between us & them is we can admit our cars are very close to theirs performance wise, but they can't it's an inferiority complex

but the Camaro seats more people (which idk about u guys i dun wanna only be able to drive one other person in my car) had is like 6 grand less (msrp) than the nissan,and i beleev gets better fuel economy (and all thats just the LS)

Generally, the comments seem to mimic what a lot of our members have said (different tone, same content) but they have a different set of priorities than we do.

Also, please don't go over there and join up as a Camaro fanboy and 'set the record straight' because we hate it when others do it to us, don't bother doing it to them.

Quoting Arcangel from the 370Z forums:

"Well I have made my decision and as much as I like the Z the Camaro wins, no replacement for displacement, a long storied history, amazing 0-60, track times, etc etc.... Enjoy your cars boys you all have a sweet ride. I will enjoy mine as well!"

Very nice and respectable Arcangel! Hopefully they will learn to our Camaro the hard way!

I have 2 co-workers that just bought the 370Z. I guess it has it's appeal for some that like small cars. I got to sit inone and started it up, and it was cool, just not a muscle car for sure. Although I didn't get to sit in a Camaro yet, I did see one roped off at the local car show. All I can say is the Camaro speaks to me, it has soul, unlike any other car. I think alot of people that bought the 370z will regret it after seeing a Camaro up close. Can't wait to get mine home ! Checked yesterday and still at 3300.

Do they have any nissan employees on their site who were actively involved in the development of their car?

you can check your order on the workbench.

3300 is the event code meaning it's scheduled for production

here's a breakdown of all the event codes

I've driven a 370Z, and to be quite honest, it didn't excite me. It pulls great, handles sharply, and the interior is quite driver oriented (something I'm major about), but it lacked raw excitement in a straight line. UNFORTUNATELY, I live in a traffic jammed city where a 2 seater track car isn't in my best interest. I need something that can take bumps, hold more than 1 passenger, more than 1 cubic foot of stuff, and still be fun to punch it for 5 seconds on the highway. The 370Z is a sports car. That is all. It has no practicality behind it, and therefore, it's no car for me.

The 370Z is a nice car, but just too small inside for me. I also think the Camaro is a lot meaner looking, which is what I want.

There is one thing the 370Z has I wish the Camaro had, that downshift rev matching. That is a cool option!

I can't wait to see how good the launch control is in the SS.

If he's basing his car choice on the fact that he doesn't like camaro5 for whatever reason, he's not too smart.
