Brute Force: Ford Shelby GT500 v Hennessey Camaro

FOR FULL COMPARISON @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=151466 Hennessey Camaro Dyno Test Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KoIx_-P5M_A Hennessey Camaro SS Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNcZeqG082A 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 @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/Comparos/articleId=143666 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 excellence." 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 might think.





Chevy Camaro SS Rips It Up with 13 sec 1/4 Mile!
FULL Camaro COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=144431?tid= edmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* 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: www.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 autobahn. 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.





2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2LT V6 Full Test by Inside Line
2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2LT V6 Full Test http://www.insideline.com/chevrolet/Camaro/2010/2010-chevrolet-Camaro-2lt-v6-full-test-and-video .html Chevy Camaro SS @ the Track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJrR8QI9iaQ Ford Shelby GT500 v Hennessey Camaro: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwCFIk0xH_s Camaro SS v Challenger SRT8 v Shelby GT500: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rJhgxyWVDo 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.
