The only reason the Camaro doesn't have all the horsepower like the GT500 is because Corvette has to be KING!!! The ZR1 has 600+ hp. No way that Chevy is gonna make a Camaro which cost less than a Corvette and be better. That will NEVER happen. And on the other hand, all that Ford has is their Mustang. They can put all kinds of things in it, because that's all they have. The Ford GT is long gone.
That's just my opinion.

Oh and that dumbass in the second video is obviously not very well educated. The LSA in the Camaro is "NOT" the same engine that is in the ZR1 which is the LS9. Stupid uneducated people!!!!!

ford knows that they are in hot water with the ZL1 Camaro,so they hurried up and made a GARBAGE can gt500 with 650 horses to compete with the ZL1,but ford shot themselves in the foot by rushing that junk out,because the gt 500 will be old news when the ZL1 finally hits the streets and ppl will buy ZL1s instead of mustanks,i hope Chevy makes a 700 hp Z28 to beat the gt500

I'll never get this angle. If the Corvette and the ZL1 had the exact same HP numbers, the Corvette is going to outperform it based on weight alone.

Relax! This is nothing new for automotive journalists. Back in 2006 when Ford introduced the GT500, they said the engine in the Shelby was the same as the engine in the Ford GT. The 5.4 in the GT and the 5.4 used in the GT500 are about as similar as the LS9 and the LSA.

Yea the Corvette will always have to be on top. Thats just it. But if Chevy really wanted to put 650 hp in a Camaro, they would not hesitate to do it.
