    i semi agree with you.

    the average driver does not need 550hp and to run 11 flat in the quarter mile. most cant handle a high 14 second car .....with that being said ...being fast is becoming less of a accomplishment and more of a ...well i dont know....it used to be cool to mod a car to get it to go 12s or 11s...but now being able to buy a stock oem car for 30k that goes 11s looses some of history and hard work required to go that fast. Granted it has always been a money = speed. BUT! it used to be your driving skills were built up along with your car...so most of the time you were not a 16 year old getting his first car that has 550hp and gobs of torque on sickening thin tires and run 11 seconds in the quarter mile .........so yeah...now 11s will become the new 12s ...everyone will run them and expect everyone to run mid to low 12s or you are slow.

    that doesnt mean anything. the governmet has invested money. they will do what it needs to get a return on that. for the camaro that means speed.

    how many performance cars have been canned by government motors that were not already in the works of getting canned before ?

    Everything has gotten better since the end of the 3rd gens and introduction of the LSX motor .. It was why spend $12k or more for a 3rd Gen when you could go down the road and get a great 69 Camaro for $2k .. LT1 was upgrade from the TPI , but then the LS1, and it all changed .. and now Ford has came out with a good HP motor , stock .. prob days have not been as good since Smokey and the Bandit came out ...

    As said before, there are many LS1 owners who think the same of themselves. It actually seems to be much worse on the LS1 owner side of things in terms of the cockiness IMO.

    Back on topic, I'd be curious to see the price tag on this supercharged Camaro. Is it really the better deal to get one of these in 2012 instead of maybe a GT500

    The only thing is that there's 100 trillion more mustangs out there to feel that way.

    That is a really good question. My hope is that they will price it to compete with the GT500. My guess after looking at what they did to the SS is that it will be overpriced as well.

    off topic alert...

    There is a lot people who own mustangs , non GT , that just look on them as a car ...

    Thing about Mustang is it has to be so many cars ..
    1. the Muscle car
    2. the sports car
    3. the only V8 rwd car Ford has so ....
