Lots of Az. Ford Fanboys on here.......... As a person who has driven a Boss 302, the GT and owned one ('94) at one time, I can say that they are very nice cars and ride OK, however, they are not as good of a ride and lack the OVER ALL performance the Camaro has. Not saying I don't like the Mustangs or Dodges.... but I hate those fart Can weedwhacking sounding cars, the point is and if you listen to the Video, the Boss 302 is what was available to use as a comparison and now they are wanting to compete with higher end track related cars. So stop getting jealous of what GM has accomplished with the Camaro and go back to the Ford site!!!

Actually the Boss was always planned to be limited to a 2 year production run, like the original.

What Ford has done with the SRA is pretty impressive. Even with its log in the back its just a smidge behind our Camaros in the handleing department (excluding the Z28) Im excited to see what ford will do with the IRS. I just hope they finally put some good rubber and breaks on the Mustang.

The handling difference is due to tire size (not quality) and has little to do with the SRA. As for the brakes they're more than good enough for what anyone here will ever use them for.

beat me to it... I really don't think anyone realizes this or knows this.

So in my eyes all the people saying 'compared to a 2 year old car that's no longer in production' and such, well that was always the plan on Ford's end, Chevy (or anyone else) would just love to see how these stack up against each other. Whether or not they were built based off each other or not... its competition, and if they didn't build off each other, then they'd be nothing of the sort.

The Z28 and SS Camaros were cheaper than their Mustang counterparts but enough teenage girls bought the Mustang over the Camaro so Mustang lived on.

Actually the GT was cheaper than even the base Z28, loaded SS was around the same price as the Cobra. the Mustang lived on because it didn't look like it was built by monkey's in the quality department........ And really, teenage girls? they outsold the Camaro 4 to 1! That is much more than daddies buying their daughters brand new sports cars........

Do your research,. just had this tie raid and the guy tried to disprove that and that is what was found out. 2001 for example. GT started at roughly 22k, Z28 at roughly 24k, Cobra was around 30k, loaded SS 30k or better, loaded WS6 could go as high as 35k. I remember these times well. I would take a Formula WS6 over any of them, but the pricing info IS correct.

Well first the Camaro looks like it was built by monkeys. Sec - the mustangs out sell camaros 4-1. Realy.
He compares the cost of a z/28 to a gt.
Not sher what year we are thinking of but the Camaro sells very well.

Yea, we all win this battle! I had a 2013 5.0, which I l loved, but having owned a 87 supra for few years in high school ( the time period that established my car taste), I got used to having a slightly heavier, more luxurious ride. I then went the opposit direction and had an s2000 for 5 years, and seing how well the new american cars were doing, I went with the 5.0, which was selling at a marginally cheaper price then the camaro's. Then riding in my buddies 2ss with a sunroof, I knew I had to have it. Both great cars though. Just like the 03-04 Cobra's (one of my favorite cars of all time) I was at a light next to one in my 45th ss and we both shot the shit for a min waiting on the line, admiring each others cars. True enthusiast appreciate all performance cars, being brand specific nowadays is IMO mildly ridiculous.

p.s. I remember in 2001 when my best friends dad bought a 2002 loaded SS camaro with a 6 speed, and let us each take it around the block for 5 minutes a piece. Jesus that thing was beautiful/badass/everything I ever wanted. I think we forget how spoiled we are now a days compared to the mid 2000's when you either had a mustang or an import.
