I'll save you the time. It's going to say the Ford is a fine car but the ZL1 is on another level. Just a better all around sports car and not just a muscle car.

what changed that is going to make a difference between 2012 vs 2013?

maybe I am out of the loop but I am not aware of anyting that would impact perfromance.

the GT500 is going to win the drag race, the ZL1 will be a more balanced drive people will banter back and forth about anyting they say ha ha.

Dead horse. I like that.

Nonetheless it keeps generating interest in our cars.

No problem making a front cover with me. If it makes front cover.

They will both be 2014 models, no? Mechanically the cars are unchanged, but since the Camaro has been refreshened there may be something there to play with. Maybe the mustang has better brakes and wider tires for 2014, which were the main reasons it was bested by the Chevy.

It is like this, stock the GT500 is a drag queen (king), but doing what most people do, the ZL1 is gonna win out. I had a 2012 mustang 5.0 and yeah it would take my 1LE in a drag race. But say we go hit the mountain roads, even the boss 302 gets it's A$$ whipped. The Camaro with the independent rear suspension rides so much better as a DD then the mustang could even dream of. But you know what all the stang boys will say, we got more POWA but if you can't get it to the ground all that POWA aint worth .02$

Very few people buy a camaro or mustang cause one is better than the other. 9 out of 10 buy one or the other cause that's the brand their loyal too. IMO mornings wrong with that.

The bottom line is that you should enjoy this era of performance. We can buy 600 hp cars with WARRANTY!!!

Try that 15 years ago.

These are the golden days right here.

I agree with all above,but do we need to keep comparing the same two cars every other month?

If one of them had some type of performance upgrade then I could see hashing it out again. It would seem to me that this is showing that there isn't really anything to talk about in the car world right now, and they need filler material until the next big thing hits.
