Only applies to Naturally Aspirated Engines your engine isn't Naturally Aspirated so of course it doesn't apply in that case, but I agree especially for a 16 year old a V8 Camaro shouldn't even be considered, if you are only just beginning to drive you will think you are invincible, trust me your not. The maturity of most 25 year olds today is far below that of what it should be.

After all we live in a society where a person can immigrate here from China, Japan, India ETC. and without learning a bit of english become a driving instructor/driving tester, which only serves to help other people that don't understand the rules of our society (not only people that immigrate but the immature douches that worship Jersey Shore, and Pitbull etc that only exist to prove to people/aliens/whatever that we are a f**ked up generation). We do not have strict enough laws for who we let on the road.

A few years ago I was siting at a red light behind two cars and this chinese guy (that either pretended to not speak english or whatever) came speeding out of a Petro-Canada across three lanes of traffic, jumped a curb and rammed into the passenger rear side of my car, which was on the opposite side that he came out of the gas station of. In short he tried to blame me for cutting him off even though I was sitting at the light for 30 seconds before he rammed into my Jeep.

So in conclusion get a Honda Civic SI or some other crappy econobox like a Subaru because at 16 you are not mature enough to drive a fast car.

How is this possible? I'm seriously asking....... did you change companies? Change deductible? Your statement is pretty much not true unless something changed with your policy.....

While I agree that everyone has the right to raise their kids the way they feel fit, there is no reason that you should get to criticize someones parenting choices. Just because my dad bought me a Camaro doesn't mean I have no work ethic, how many 19 year old's do you know that are working so that they can buy a house. In this generation not many.

Neither. Your profile says you drive a VW GTI. Keep driving that and spend your parents money on a college education. You'll get much more use out of it then you will an SS that you've totalled because you were showing off.

16 years old, please don't get an SS. it really has to do with one thing: inexperience at driving. you may be the most mature 16 year old out there, but you don't have any experience driving.

agree with previous statements when you say "compete with friend's car," you act like it's already about buying a car to race. that's a bad, bad idea to purchase a car. being 16 just makes it scary.

The 3.6 is a mean little motor! If I were you, I'd go for the 2LT. PLENTY of power, good mileage (and that's going to be important once you're paying for your own gas) and you can get all the amenities (halos, leather, ambient lighting, shiny lights on dash) that will impress the ladies

We've gone over it before, and will again. Don't let your ego turn the above statement into an insult- it isn't. The SS truly does possess some terrifying power. Way more than you'll ever need for around-town driving, or even occasional light-to light sprints. (go ahead, act like you're not going to race your buddy's Civic at least once) Even 312HP is ALOT of gumption for someone that's new to the road, so don't push too hard for the SS. I think the sixer will make you happier, and you might just keep it on the road long enough to make it through high school and still have a car.

I say buy neither. Why would a 16 year old need a brand new Camaro?

Sorry, jealousy talking. I'm still waiting to buy my own. I had to graduate high school, get an engineering degree, find a good job, then save up a down payment. Now I can finally get one.... once they start making the Bumblebees.

I'm sure you'll be happy with either choice. I'd prefer a 2LT myself. I want the extras, rather than a higher insurance payment and more gas going into the tank.

Some comments I made did seem immature, by the time the Camaro is in my hands I will be past 17 years old, I am a very responsible driver, I've had no tickets, no accidents, I haven't even been pulled over once. I do understand the power of the car because I've driven my parents cars and my brothers, which is the VW GTI. That is not my car, just what I drive (if and when I am allowed to). Not every 16 year old is an immature douche bag as some of you are saying. If your parents offered you a car like the Camaro at age 16 would you say no? My point exactly.
