2012 Camaro ZL1 As Fast As Porsche or Lamborghini? Afraid So.
All of the naysayers out there that think American cars are junk, think
again. This stock Camaro ZL1 turned times at the
Nordschleife last week that were right there with Porsche, Lamborghini and
Ferrari, all for 60,000 USD. Even Jeremy Clarkson has a Corvette ZR1, after
he laughed at...then drove it.
2012 Camaro ZL1 laps Nürburgring in 7:41:27
GM's North American president, Mark Reuss, has confirmed a
Nürburgring-Nordschleife lap time of 7 minutes and 41.27 seconds for the
2012 Camaro ZL1.
That time on the full-length, 20.832 km (12.944 miles), of the
Nürburgring-Nordschleife circuit beats out such track performers as the
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and the BMW M3 GTS - putting the ZL1 in solid
supercar territory. (Most lap times are measured on the 20.6 km stretch of
the track, stopping 200 meters short of the end.)
The test, though, was conducted by GM and not independently. The time was
set by GM's own test driver Aaron Link.

2010 Camaro SS Birthday Surprise
May 2013 - Shane is now graduating from high school and the car remains in
excellent condition. You might also be surprised to learn that he still
hasn't gotten any tickets. We're very proud of the responsible young man he
Apr 2012 -- Well, Shane is now 17 and after 23,000 miles I'm happy to
report that he still hasn't had any accidents or tickets. He'll be a
senior next year and he's considering a career in automotive design. We'll

Jan 2011 -- Shane has recently turned 16 and put more than 4,000 miles on
the car without ANY incidents. He takes outstanding care of the vehicle
and has grown to become a very responsible and mature teenager.
Feb 2010 -- My wife and I ordered a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS as a surprise birthday
gift for our fifteen year old son. This was a complete surprise and he
had absolutely no idea that the car was his. On another note, I appreciate
everyone's concern for his well-being, however I think it is more
responsible for a parent to teach a teenager how to drive than to pretend
that they're not going to drive fast. The car is not the danger; an
inexperienced driver is usually what causes injury or death, regardless of
