Where is the srt8 392 challenger
Duncan Ashenhurst Feb 11, 2013
The BRZ will be the most collectible here in NZ, that's for sure...
Ashton Summers Feb 06, 2013
Cool, I have at least one on this list. Might not sell it after all.

Lol that's funny
Patrick Schalk Feb 07, 2013
You can't read.
Tyler Wallace Mar 04, 2013
Yea for a u fan boys enjoy dropping the top in one of these you'll be in for a surprise
Carlos Dorantes Feb 07, 2013
A Camaro???? Really??? Wtf!!!
Zachary Maurer Feb 07, 2013
Well, said 69', but I also know the 67-68 is a different style
Brett Vincent Feb 07, 2013
I think a Mustang made out of mustard would be a great collectible. I can put it next to my butter Jesus.
Anthony Perugini Feb 07, 2013
it obviously is styled after the 69. look at the second windows and all the lines. the "gills" behind the door sills. the angle at the front of the hood. that's what they were going for. just like ford did with the mustand
Aj White Feb 07, 2013
@Zachary It was styled after the 69
Ashton Summers Feb 07, 2013
Well, yeah. It's not pretty, but neither is Burt Reynolds.
Zeus Mocha Feb 07, 2013
This is way better looking than the GT500. At least the front. I like the back of the Shelby.
Jacob Burford Feb 06, 2013
I like it, but the Shelby is always in my mind when I think of this car! Hard choice!
Jordan Park Feb 06, 2013
I'd take a Shelby GT500 over this all day!
Brandon Chamberlain Feb 06, 2013
Ugly.. Like almost all of GMs products after '75
Zachary Maurer Feb 06, 2013
Erich sounds kinda hurt, I really don't think they were goin for the 67-69' style, I think they wanted to bring back a stang fighter with a very recognizable name. I'm a stang guy, but even I would take this over a gt500
Colby Church Feb 06, 2013
Honestly, I don't think they could have done a better job interpreting a modern Camaro with classic styling cues. It looks perfect for what it is.
Jake Putinta Feb 06, 2013
beautiful
Chris Huff Feb 06, 2013
someone sounds like a hater
Tyson Broadbent Feb 06, 2013
Looks awesome btw.
Tyson Broadbent Feb 06, 2013
Comaro? Ok bud.
Benjamin Hardaway Feb 06, 2013
Wow this looks good.
Benjamin Hardaway Feb 06, 2013
I think he means convertible.
Miguel Montes Feb 06, 2013
They are all coupe
Bala Uncc Feb 06, 2013
For some reason Camaro looks better as coupe
Aaron Crisp Feb 06, 2013
'Merica!

Jacob Burford Feb 06, 2013
Love the new cayman! The only thing stopping me from considering one is the new f-type Jag!
Jacob Burford Feb 06, 2013
Porsche isn't about how much horsepower they have, it's about the way they use it!
Phaidon Chrisostalis Feb 06, 2013
4,4 is with the sport chrono package which is expensive. Without it 0-60 will be about 5 seconds
Luke Purdy Feb 06, 2013
I'd have the Porsche
Jordan Smith Feb 06, 2013
I'd take the new base Corvette over this now. The new Corvette is awesome.
Tyler Tarbox Feb 06, 2013
Chargers are big heavy and slow. This car may have less power but is better in every single way
Jackson Michael Feb 06, 2013
Chargers are also fat as fuck. Not that I don't like the charger, but the Porsche is light and quick
Cory Deines Feb 06, 2013
A 2006 Dodge Charger won't do 0-60 in 4.4 seconds. 345hp may not sound like a lot, but this car utilizes the power very well.
Benjamin Hardaway Feb 06, 2013
I'd take the vette it's way better.
Markel Brown Feb 06, 2013
325 horsepower for that price, hell nah that ain't shit. A 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 has more power than that.
Matt Piccolo Feb 06, 2013
I'd take a Porsche over a vette any day of the week
Kai Andrew Carlson Feb 06, 2013
Vettes are nice and all but not a base corvette over this.
Daniel Kenneth Babler Feb 06, 2013
Would totally take a Vette over this "Porsche" lol
Sam Reinsel Feb 06, 2013
Yeah, but it's not like the base corvette is going to be slow or anything....
Jackson Michael Feb 06, 2013
There's no way anything other than a totally base corvettes will be less than this
Nick Schnee Feb 06, 2013
Uh nope. Porsche > 'vette.
Austin Sullivan Feb 06, 2013
C7 and $10K leftover anyone?
Aaron Crisp Feb 06, 2013

Dylan Bruder Feb 06, 2013
They did great with the cayman
Jordan Nishida Feb 06, 2013
Nice. 911 is better
rowhan116 Feb 06, 2013
@nino, I agree.
Carter Sullivan Feb 06, 2013
Fair point. It's a cayman. It's sweet
Nino Muradi Feb 06, 2013
Nice car! But it's not a 911.
Joel Hayes Feb 06, 2013
Clean lines
Adam Thomson Feb 06, 2013

Vinny Coppola Feb 06, 2013

Eric Dare Feb 06, 2013
Good math carbuzz unless you prices are wrong for this car, this one costs 5100 more
Patrick Schalk Feb 06, 2013
I've driven one of these and they are amazing inside but you can definitely tell the lack of torque.
Luke Purdy Feb 06, 2013
God why is everyone complaining about "ermagherd that's hardly any power!!"?
Jordan Smith Feb 06, 2013
Amen Tim. I love the RS5, I just wish it was torquey-er.
Tyler Tarbox Feb 06, 2013
Would take this over the Cayman for sure
Tim Preisinger Feb 06, 2013
But it sure is something
Matt Piccolo Feb 06, 2013
Power isn't everything
Raymond Reynoso Feb 06, 2013
Buy an S5 then.
Jason Brown Feb 06, 2013
Under rates specs. Remap the ECU and you can have a lot more power.
Aaron Crisp Feb 06, 2013
317 Ib-ft of torque? :/ The raw power American inside me wants more.
Carlos Dorantes Feb 07, 2013
Best car on the list, hands down. Also lower production numbers = more exclusivity.
Ben Taylor Feb 07, 2013
So you do dylan
Nikolas Skyttér Feb 07, 2013
Qualitywise it owns any U.S car by 30 times.
Ben Taylor Feb 07, 2013
So you so dylan
Jacob Burford Feb 06, 2013
Looks nice, but id prefer the more driver focused M3! Still a great car!
Joel Pascual Feb 06, 2013
Absolutely stunning, such clean sharp lines
Dylan Bruder Feb 06, 2013
Prefer the previous model
Jordan Nishida Feb 06, 2013
S8 or S6 sedan is better
Stephen Tyler Learn Feb 06, 2013
@erich the ls2 gto's are going to be future collectibles.
Mike Bradnan Feb 06, 2013
It's understated looks does it for me. The new Cayman is beautiful. I can't decide which I like better.
Rithhin Jawahar Feb 06, 2013
Sweet and simple... Take my money
Mark Fei Ling Feb 06, 2013
Really?? It's nice car, but already aged. I'll pass too
Ben Taylor Feb 06, 2013
I'll pass tio
Vinny Coppola Feb 06, 2013
Too bland
Bala Uncc Feb 06, 2013
I will pass on this
Josh Negron Feb 06, 2013
Sweet headlights

Colby who talks like that "my local Chevy dealer" r u comin straight out of a commercial or something
Anthony Perugini Feb 07, 2013
but why would you sell a beautiful piece of art such as this?
Chris Huff Feb 06, 2013
If i were to buy a c7 i would wait for the 'z06' or 'zr1'. Not sure if they are calling them that
Jimmy Bartolotta Feb 06, 2013
It's a convertible Z06 what's not to love? I'd take this over the new C7
Colby Church Feb 06, 2013
The 427 Convertible starts out at $75k, but most are over $85k. My local Chevy dealer has 2 of them.
Robert Young Feb 08, 2013
Stephen the grand sport still is an ls3. Z06 has too much tq to be a conv.
Robert Young Feb 08, 2013
I'm with you Patrick. Mines an 08.
Patrick Schalk Feb 08, 2013
Uhh, someone who wants to stomp the shit out of a overrated car while having the wind blow through their hair, that's who.
Carlos Dorantes Feb 07, 2013
At $75K, Who in their right mind pick this plastic car over the RS5?
Stephen Tyler Learn Feb 07, 2013
@jimmy its missing the the lightweight chassis.
David Gomez Feb 07, 2013
Dumb ass lol
Patrick Schalk Feb 07, 2013
Yeah Anthony, Audi, Porsche, VW, Subaru, and Mini are all American products.
Tim Preisinger Feb 07, 2013
Yeah Anthony, cause the Audi right next to this is American...
Anthony Dillon Feb 07, 2013
I'm guessing this is USA list and not a world one
Jimmy Bartolotta Feb 07, 2013
@stephen the grand sport had the z06 suspension and brakes. Adding the ls7 that the z06 had makes this essentially a z06 convertible.
Jayce Madrid Feb 07, 2013
I saw this Vette the other day. I think the C6s are still cool. They have such a raw feel to them when you drive them, and they look like something classic.
Jacob Burford Feb 06, 2013
With the new C7 out, the C6 looks even more outdated than it does when there was no C7!
Stephen Tyler Learn Feb 06, 2013
@david no its not. There was never a z06 convertible. This car is basically a grand sport with an ls7 in it. It's collectible because it's limited production and it's the fastest corvette convertible ever made.
David Gomez Feb 06, 2013
Isn't this just a rebadged convertible Z06 with a little higher price tag?
Jordan Nishida Feb 06, 2013
Favorite car on the list
Jordan Nishida Feb 06, 2013
Wow. Love it.
Patrick Schalk Feb 06, 2013
David, 427 convertibles are not a dime a dozen.
David Gomez Feb 06, 2013
I don't see what will be so special about them. Corvettes are a dime a dozen.
Chris Huff Feb 06, 2013
Ya not a big fan of convertibles c6's
Ashton Summers Feb 06, 2013
Yup. Definitely will be a collector, probably more so than a ZR1.
Colby Church Feb 06, 2013
Not a big fan of convertibles, but if I had to pick one to drive, this would be it.
Mitchell Cherry Feb 06, 2013

Hunter Nolte Mar 08, 2013
The engine with most go for NA goes to the zonda R hands down
Patrick Schalk Feb 07, 2013
640hp out of a naturally aspirated engine is nuts.
Jack Howard Feb 06, 2013
Colby it doesn't have the most HP, just torque
Brandon Chamberlain Feb 06, 2013
The best N/A car out there
Colby Church Feb 06, 2013
Not to me mention they are extremely reliable and easier to fix of something does go wrong.
Colby Church Feb 06, 2013
@Kyle They definitely don't produce as much horsepower. The Viper has the most horsepower of any naturally aspirated production car. There's proof. Our Pushrod engines may be more simplistic, but they produce amazing power with relative ease.
Dylan Bruder Feb 06, 2013
Different behaviors and purposes you can have same numbers but completely different engines
Stephen Tyler Learn Feb 06, 2013
Also the "large" American motors are usually OHV and many of them are lighter than the "smaller" DOHC European engines
Stephen Tyler Learn Feb 06, 2013
You answered your own question when you brought torque into the picture
Kyle Kloewer Feb 06, 2013
Why do American engines have such large displacements when smaller engines in European cars produce much more power? (Hp not torque, American engines are known for torque)
Mason Sch Jul 22, 2013
Of course Colby is gonna say the viper is worse cuz he's a vette fanboy
Duncan Ashenhurst Feb 11, 2013
I just can't get behind this car. To me it's just... obnoxious. And not in a good way.
Doug Deeks Feb 09, 2013
And so deserving!!! a true North American exotic!!!! Bring on the pain!!
Carlos Dorantes Feb 07, 2013
Truly awful!
Ben Taylor Feb 07, 2013
No no no it isnt
Jacob Burford Feb 07, 2013
@Ben Nice vocabulary and "no no no" is great justification of why the corvette is better! LOL!
Anthony Perugini Feb 07, 2013
you Wont be able to drive it 100 km. its not going over seasxD
Nikolas Skyttér Feb 07, 2013
8,4L, seems like you'll need a gas station every 100km you drive.
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 07, 2013
I would take the viper over the vette because of the crazy engine
Ben Taylor Feb 07, 2013
No no no Jacob the vette os better you are wrong
Jacob Burford Feb 06, 2013
Better looking than the corvette, and has more character!
Brandon Chamberlain Feb 06, 2013
Viper > corvette and that's a proven fact
Jose Carlos Feb 06, 2013
I just don't think they did enough on the looks department with the time they had. It is just a refreshed viper. It looks old already. Look at the C7, it is stunning, and they did not have years off like the Viper.
Colby Church Feb 06, 2013
I agree with Jordan. Corvette looks much better. Headlights are meaner too.
Jordan Nishida Feb 06, 2013
I would take the corvette over this
Luke Purdy Feb 06, 2013
Take this over any version of the corvette anyday
Aiden Bass Feb 06, 2013
The Mazda RX-8 produced more hp/L than the Bugatti Veyron... I wouldnt really ever compare those cars
rowhan116 Feb 06, 2013
true.
Josh Negron Feb 06, 2013
True and true
Ashton Summers Feb 06, 2013
A lot of people mistake Torque for HP. Torque is the advantage of a larger ohv engines. High HP/L on an NA engine sacrifices torque. If you want 840hp out of a viper, you can twin turbocharge it, and that engine was designed to handle tuning.
Tim Preisinger Feb 06, 2013
Power to weight is everything... Hp to Liter means absolutely nothing. Also even if a bigger motor makes the same exact power as a smaller one... Chances are the bigger motor will have an advantage over the smaller one. Something called torque.
Josh Negron Feb 06, 2013
Dude, your efficiency argument is pointless when 1) talking about NA and 2) talking about a 640hp ("I think my balls are bigger than yours") SRT Viper... You wanna talk efficiency, then FI should be your only consideration...
Patrick Schalk Feb 06, 2013
No it's crank hp. I don't think many companies advertise true wheel hp.
Haoliang Li Feb 06, 2013
I don't know but isn't 640hp@wheel?
Patrick Schalk Feb 06, 2013
Marcus you have no idea what you are talking about.
Marcus Espineta Feb 06, 2013
It's definitely relevant.... The more efficient the engine the more hp and torque and mpg period...it's not everything but all automakers strive for more hp/l. Is power/weight important? Of course it's the thing....efficiency
Matt Piccolo Feb 06, 2013
I wouldn't say hp/l is totally irrelevant, but it's not that important.
Marcus Espineta Feb 06, 2013
It's simply inefficient
Marcus Espineta Feb 06, 2013
Great. I'm only speaking about efficiency not about performance cus obviously the viper produces some great numbers. And it is difficult to compare ohc dohc pushrods and rotary engines as well as forced induction to na, but never the less at 8.4 l
Marcus Espineta Feb 06, 2013
Ok so just to clear this up a little. I never said the viper was a lousy sports car I was merely speaking about the efficiency of an engine. My uncle has an srt-10 and it's def a fun car and it's mean and aggressive. I like the new viper it looks
Read Mills Feb 06, 2013
Amazing!!!
Read Mills Feb 06, 2013
Just saying, but if the HP/L is the best argument, and as another person stated before that companies should be getting 100HP/L, then the Chevy Volt is one of the best sports cars around! At 1.4L it produces 145HP! That's almost 104HP per liter!
Corey Alan Kelley Feb 06, 2013
The BRZ/86 have 100 per liter screw your inefficient SLS!
Michael Page Feb 06, 2013
I agree with Patrick, the hp/L argument goes out the window when comparing pushrods to ohc/dohc engines. Same with rotaries. For example: the 6.2 LS is smaller and lighter (slightly) than a 5.0 coyote.
Josh Negron Feb 06, 2013
Agreed Patrick... Besides... I said it's not ALL about hp/ltr. Of course it factors in--but not all that counts. And no, 90 is not too great if it is all about HP/ltr...
Patrick Schalk Feb 06, 2013
Marcus, just stop right there. Your credibility is already out the window. It is NOT about hp/L. That doesn't have anything to do with anything.
Marcus Espineta Feb 06, 2013
The sls is my favorite car and it sits around 90 hp per liter still better than the viper
Marcus Espineta Feb 06, 2013
It is about hp per liter brah. As well as power to weight ratio. Also there are plenty of N/A engines that get 100hp per liter which is the new standard in the industry not 75.
Jason Brown Feb 06, 2013
Love the fact Dodge used the big V10. Produces the most torque for a naturally aspirated engine in production. I remember when going up state side, neighbor had a red viper. When the engine purring, you can feel it standing 2 meters away.
Josh Negron Feb 06, 2013
Ummmm... The new Viper doesn't have the most "inefficient" engine anymore, brah... Plus, that wouldn't be the word I'd use in the first place for NA cars--it's not all about hp/liter--just look at SLS, Z06, or any Aston for starters.
Marcus Espineta Feb 06, 2013
The cayman will be as collectible as a 944 is now...lol
Marcus Espineta Feb 06, 2013
I'll start it I guess...that 8.4 v10 is the most inefficient engine produced today.....in a sports car anyways. And the vette is too mass produced to be a collectible. And the Porsche cayman, really...I don't even have to say anything about that.
