The 2010-2014 Camaros RS V6 and SS V8 are all muscle cars by definition of the 60's muscle car era! Back then if your car had 300hp , it was considered a muscle car! So, YES we all own muscle cars just different levels of HIGH PERFORMANCE!

V-iva La V6! Seriously, the 'Master Race' notwithstanding, it really does have quite the performance (and gas mileage) for a lowly 6 cylinder. And that apparently didn't go unnoticed by the consumer / resale market.

I share your sentiment. Even back to a 2010 SS, I still see prices in the mid $20K's to and over $30K. People are gladly paying it and people are also handily forking over close to $40K for new ones, so I suppose there is no reason for prices to drop anytime soon.

Performance is huge for resale value, you want to go fast, you have to pay. The SS especially will hold strong resale value 10 years from now. I fear the V6 will take a hit because of all the similarly priced cars with as good or better performance in its price range (Mustang V6, Genesis Coupes, WRX).

I think the retro (2010 and up Camaro ss's as well as the 2011-2014 Mustang GT 5.0) will have excellent resale values in the next 10 years as well.

Yeah, hard to say but having lived 57 years, I've seen the V8 / performance cars fall in and out of grace during some eras. After the 70's oil embargo, Detroit made the decision - for us - that we needed little, nondescript, cars with little motors with front wheel drivetrains. We're enjoying what may be the last renaissance of Detroit muscle right now.

MY fear is, that when us boomers die off, the "muscle car" of yesteryear (current year) will be another thing undesirable attributed to the boomer legacy. Face it my fellow boomers, the younger generation thinks we effed up the planet. (jury's still out...) The future Camaro may be a hybrid electric water-burning hydrogen "Flux Capacitor" powered God-knows-what!

I think they already know. My husband has a 2012 2SS and I have a 2011 2LT. It cost more to insure the LT by $70. Makes no sense. Go figure.

I cant begin to imagine how much less you would get for other muscle cars. I was offered an insulting trade in value when I once considered it earlier this year. But hey good news on camaro!
