You've already read our First Drive of the 2016 Chevy Camaro prototype, now see the video of senior editor Greg Migliore behind the wheel.
For the next episode of Motor Trend's Head 2 Head, the 580-horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 takes on the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. In spite of the power differential it's a close fight on performance, but one of them takes the feel-good factor way beyond its engine numbers.
The latest episode of Petrolicious looks at auto restorer Adam Martin and his 1968 Chevrolet Camaro that he calls Lucy. He bought the pony car at just 16, and by learning to work on it, the classic Chevy pushed him into his current career. Eighteen years later, Martin has kept driving Lucy and continues to make her even better.
Over two decades before Motor Trend had a similar idea, in 1983, MotorWeek compared the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 to the Porsche 928S. At the time, the Camaro was America's best-selling sports coupe and the 928S was Porsche's top-of-the-line model that also happened to have the highest top speed of any car sold here.
Motor Trend tests the Camaro Z/28 against the Porsche 911 GT3 in the latest episode of Head 2 Head. That's a 7.0-liter V8 versus a 3.8-liter flat-six, 505 horsepower vs. 475 hp, 3,882 pounds vs. 3,267 pounds, and an as-tested price of $76,150 vs. $145,785. It isn't exactly fair, but it's totally fun to watch.
