what cars are faster than the SS?

what popular cars are faster? we all know the cts-v, the corvette, the z06, the m3/m5, etc. but what about the 370z, the g37, the 550i/335i, the boxster, the genesis, so on and so forth? i just think it would be interesting to compile a list of cars that are definitely quicker than the SS that you are likely to see on the road. of course there are aston martin's, bentley's, and others that are much faster, but also much rarer. nobody expects the camaro to be faster than those.

stock vs. stock of course

If you put the same money in the SS you would beat the M3. I looked at a new one, Starting at $58,900 MSRP. You could upgrade a lot with the extra money.

That would be a LONG list if your talking stock un-modified vs stock un-modified.

Now turn any of us respected tuners loose and depending on how deep your pockets are we can shrink that list substainially.

yeah, i mean i'm generally asking to see such a list. i just don't know, and the only help google is will be 0-60 numbers that probably aren't always that accurate in the first place.

and no, not asking in the camaro's price range, just simply: stock vs. stock, what common/popular cars are faster than the SS?

i said "common" and "popular" cars. the more expensive the car, the less popular or common it is. so we shouldn't limit the discussion to a budget.

according to forbes.com (2009 data), it's not that many cars (under $100k): mustang +, z06, AMG, lotus (yuck), GT-R, viper, cts-v

under $50k: http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/05/fas...r_slide_2.html

camaro is the fastest on 0-60 behind the gt500.

so really, the answer to my own post: not many popular cars are faster. lol.

You need to narrow your question down... as what cars are popular in my town my differ from what's popular in your town.

Example: I live in Denver... AWD Turbo cars are VERY popular here... while RWD N/A cars are fairly rare.

Also, I live in a yuppie part of town, with a large Ferrari Dealership... it's quite common to see a Bentley or Ferrari driving around... in fact... I saw a Veyron just the other day.

So I think price and stock vs. stock is a much better comparison.

Also, are we only comparing 2010 - 2012 model years? or are we comparing any year... just MSRP New Price?

If it's the latter.. this is going to be on HELL of a list.

Pretty sure the list can get long for the SS camaro. but nothing is faster than the v6 Camaro. You can take that to the bank!
