Company claims first to second, second to third, and third to fourth are all faster than the German dual-clutch.

Chevy just fired a 10-speed shot across Porsche's bow.

At the 2016 New York Auto Show, Chevy's Al Oppenheiser confirmed that if you take your new Camaro SS and have an issue, GM will have your back.

Plus: Analysis on the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF and Lincoln Navigator

Will we be driving Mercedes-Benz AMGs and Camaro ZL1s forever? Experts weigh in.

The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible has the same 640-horsepower as the coupe but offers the ability to enjoy the wind in your hair at high speed. It goes on sale in early 2017.

Hellcat owners, you should probably be worried.

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 rolled into the New York Auto Show with plenty of power, a new ten-speed automatic, and a big chip on its shoulder.

Traditional V8 power teams with GM's first 10-speed automatic gearbox.

The 2017 Chevy Camaro ZL1 is more powerful, agile, and it looks flat-out mean. Chevy says it can take on anyone. It's hard to disagree.

Big Brakes Biggest Give Away For Next ZL1

Chevrolet looks to be prepping a new high-performance ZL1 Camaro that could pack up to 640 ponies from a 6.2-liter, supercharged V8.

The latest spy shots still show the next-gen Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 covered in camouflage, but it's easy to tell already that it offers some mean looking muscle.

Chevrolet engineers are hard at work on the next Camaro ZL1. The coupe is seen here covered in camouflage, but it's hard to miss the heat extractor in the hood, wider rear and larger wing even through the concealment.

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.

Being an automotive journalist can be a dangerous gig. No, we're not talking about the risk of carpal tunnel from typing for eight to ten hours a day, five to six days a week or the long periods of sitting. Instead, we're referring to what may be more obvious: the cars. For all of our talk and bravado when it comes to the high-performance vehicles we drive, testing a powerful vehicle on public roads requires a high degree of responsibility and judgment. Every journalist has found themselves lack

Okay General Motors, we've sat by and watched you recall the compact cars, crossovers and pickup trucks, and aside from reporting on it, we've been fairly quiet. This, though, this will not do. We can almost tolerate the recalls on the bread-and-butter cars, but leave the performance vehicles alone.

Texans, please stay away from water in your sports cars. Now, this latest fiasco isn't quite so dire as the Lone Star State's last attempt at an amphibious sportscar - a waterlogged Bugatti Veyron - although that's largely because the Veyron in that story cost $1.6 million and this submerged Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 only cost about $57,000. Still, it's a sad state of affairs for the supercharged, 580-horsepower rocket.

Last week, we told you about the saga of Delaware couple Debbie and John Hooper, who were engaged in a battle with First State Chevrolet over their wrecked 2012 Camaro ZL1. The car was sent to the dealer for a warrantied paint repair, but was wrecked by a joyriding employee that snuck in on a weekend to go for a spin.

Imagine, if you will, that you own a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe. To get this car, you traded in a 1969 Camaro SS and a 2011 Camaro SS. You take your new ZL1, which only has 10,000 miles on it, into the dealership you bought it from to deal with an issue with the paint, which is covered under warranty.

Make Your Fast Car Faster

The SEMA Show in Las Vegas is almost universally more show than go. The monster performance cars and unholy super-modified rides that line the show halls are undoubtedly impressive, but we journalists rarely have the chance to do much more than look at them while we're in town. So, it was a real breath of fresh air to hang out with Chevy at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and drive a set of Camaros that had been freshly shod with go-fast bits from the company's newly refreshed performance parts catalo

There's nothing like a factory-built part, especially of the performance variety: you can make your car faster, often without voiding the vehicle warranty. Take the Chevrolet Camaro, for instance, and imagine being able to swap some of the most crucial ZL1 parts onto your SS or V6 model. Well, that's now a reality because Chevrolet Performance has announced that it offers a slew of the high-performance parts found on high-end V8 and, in particular, supercharged Camaro models for installation ont

One of the biggest challenges automakers face when designing a high-performance car is making sure that it is both fast and reliable. For General Motors, any car that might be taken to the track by its owner – like the Corvette, Camaro Z/28 (shown above) and the Cadillac CTS-V, for example – undergoes a rigorous and strenuous 24-hour test by engineers at the Milford Proving Grounds, as pointed out by Car and Driver.

Happy National Donut Day, everyone! While some of us may have already celebrated this high-caloric holiday at our local Dunkin' Donuts or Tim Horton's, Chevrolet and Lexus have taken the opportunity to offer us delicious donuts of a different sort. Using a "professional donut maker" and a 2013 Camaro ZL1, Chevy has released a video of its 580-horsepower coupe laying down some serious rubber. Lexus has countered with its LFA supercar and, oddly, LPGA pro golfer Natalie Gulbis.

Employing complex scientific formulas and methodologies probably best described as "Whatever we felt like choosing," Automobile has named its All-Stars for the 2013 model year. The 11 vehicles earned their trophies for being "the best and most significant" offerings to the mag's staff and contributors, and while we were surprised to see a couple of them on the list, none of them were shocking. In no particular order, they are:

For a concept car built to promote an animated movie about a snail that wants to go racing, this thing ain't half bad. The outsized monster you see before you started life as a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and then went through a big-time Hollywood makeover before being positioned on the Chevrolet stand here in Chicago.
