These are the heavy hitters. The big dogs. They're not playmakers or finesse artists and they don't dish out assists. If the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 is Dick Butkus snuffing out a Jim Brown thrust up the middle, then the 2010 Hennessey Performance Engineering Chevy Camaro SS HPE550 is Lawrence Taylor with radar lock on Joe Theismann's right leg. And it's not just that they're powerful and merciless, but intentionally provocative and intimidating, too. On looks alone, either of these cars is enough to make the drivers of other machines cower like a three-legged Labradoodle.
They are, of course, muscle cars in the rawest, most vicious sense of the term. And they're quicker, faster, meaner and flat nastier than anything built back when Ol' Shel and Don Yenko were just guys. And not by a little bit either.
But which is the better beast? To find out, we drove these two all-Americans on the street, at our test track and on the Dynojet chassis Dyno at MD Automotive in Westminster, California. Then we did some big smoky burnouts just to piss off the Sierra Club. By the time we were through, Greenpeace had threatened to blockade the Inside Line garage and the Obama administration was seriously considering a unilateral deployment of the fun police. Didn't matter. By then the tires were shot and we had our winner.
Mustang v 370Z SMACKDOWN: Ford Mustang GT vs. Nissan 370Z
FULL Mustang V 370Z COMPARO
When we last left the 2009 Nissan 370Z, it had just laid a drubbing on
BMW's little 135i. We then proclaimed, "The 2009 Nissan 370Z raises the
standard for the sport coupe segment to a new level of affordable
Time to get more serious. It's V8 time. Who's in? Let's see, no Camaro, and a Challenger is not
available (don't ask), so that leaves the freshly updated 2010 Ford Mustang GT, a car whose very
existence is predicated upon wallet-friendly performance.
Perhaps a reinvigorated veteran can take down the newly crowned king. The
particulars might differ — four seats versus two, V8 versus V6 — but
the mission is the same. And the 2009 Nissan 370Z and 2010 Ford Mustang GT are priced closer than you
Chevy Camaro SS Rips It Up with 13 sec 1/4 Mile!
FULL Camaro COVERAGE @
The last thing General Motors needs right now is to appear as if it's stuck
in the past, creating gas-guzzling cars that are out of step with what the
federal government thinks is the future.
So even when Chevrolet steps into the way-back machine to unveil the
426-horspower retro-inflected 2010 Chevy Camaro SS, it's careful to
mention that this muscle/pony car is the "sports car for the 21st century"
and emphasizes the Camaro's fuel economy ratings
more than its 0-60-mph performance.
So we did what had to be done. We dropped an asphalt-melting burnout in the
parking lot of a former seminary that was of such destructive length that
the guys hired by Chevy to prep and clean the Camaros had time to wander over
and say, "Stop. You're done."
Had a Dairy Queen been available we would have laid a patch in front of
that, too. Look, man. We've been waiting for years for the arrival of this
car; there will be time to talk about balance and the quality of the
interior materials later.
Porsche Panamera Driven! Exclusive First Drive by Edmunds
FOR FULL PANAMERA STORY @ INSIDELINE.COM:
"Hey, how fast is 255 kilometers per hour?" asks our videographer, John
Adolph, to a colleague seated behind him. "Because this sure doesn't feel
like we're going that fast."
The silence that follows says more about the 2010 Porsche Panamera than
anything else we experience in our three-day drive. From the driver seat,
with my mental calculator in high gear, I glance in the rearview mirror and
witness the unlikely. That colleague is asleep. Here. In a Porsche. On the
It had taken a few long days on airplanes to arrive in Bavaria and none of
us had slept well. But the fact that this guy managed to do it now means
that the new Panamera is, as Porsche claims, a true four-door GT.
Just as I'm wrapping my mind around these facts, my calculator finishes the
math. The speed? 158.1 mph. With a sleeping passenger. Sheesh.

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro V6 sits, engine ticking,
in the middle of a dangerous intersection of perception.
Heading in from one side is Muscle Car Blvd. Dotted with neon signs and its
pavement scarred with melted rubber, this road is enthusiastically
patrolled by car-guy elitists. It bears a sign reading "V8s only." The
quick-stop oil change location is long closed, "DIY 4-Life" spray-painted
across the dusty windows. Entry-level sport coupes tread lightly here.
Dead ahead lies Vanity Lane. It is patrolled by secretaries, retired
secretaries and the fashionistas to whom a car is no different from a
handbag — a world where style is substance. Here one little faux pas, one
misguided association with, say, a mullet haircut, will shatter the
illusion of high style. It's here that you find the entry-level Corvette
with automatic transmission, the old Lexus SC coupe and the ever-lasting Mustang V6.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake - 750 Horsepower ROAD TEST
I was lucky enough to get the keys to this awesome car and wanted to share
my quick blast up this canyon road with any fellow gear heads. I'm just
your average car lover that happened upon this great opportunity to wheel
one of the fastest production Mustangs ever made! Chevy, Mopar or
Ford guys should appreciate this car...750 horsepower in a production
street car is flat-out cool. Unfortunately my lack of skills don't do this
car justice on the road...but this video will give you a taste of the
immense power, ferocious sounds and sexy yet menacing looks of this
American muscle car.
Check out the other videos on my you tube channel... there are a few more
road test videos with some great cars and build videos of my personal
project vehicle, a 1970 Ford Maverick with a Dodge Viper V10 engine stuffed

1967 GT500 Eleanor: Re-imagining a Classic - /BIG MUSCLE
Carroll Shelby created it, "Gone in 60 Seconds" re-imagined it, and
audiences around the world made it famous. The 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor is
one of the most recognizable movie cars of all time. With the body lines of
a shark, the stage presence of a movie star and the perceived performance
of an olympic athlete, it's no wonder die-hard enthusiasts fell in love
with this amazing machine. BIG MUSCLE received so many requests for this
car that we just had to go out and find one. So now sit back, click play
and enjoy... and don't bust my chops in regards to my glasses - it was
really sunny that day - M. Musto
