When it comes to all-out track performance, a comparison between the Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca and the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 seems like a fairly interesting matchup.

Well, at least it does at first, but apparently the showdown favors Camaro fans a lot more than Mustang enthusiasts.

"Frankly we've tested everything they have and the Ford Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca is their fastest track car," says Al Oppenheiser, Chevrolet Camaro's chief engineer, on the video.

Hmm... Check out the clip or rather Chevy ad below and let us know if you're buying it.

Daniel Kwolps (Tue, 29 Oct 2013 17:35:33 -0700): i can't wait until the 2015 comes out. Ford's new slogan- "The 2015 Ford mustang; that'll shut'em up"
Earl Grylls (Wed, 30 Oct 2013 05:59:29 -0700): This back and forth has happened for decades and will continue to happen. Everyone benefits from it. Given that the Z28 isn't even out yet and they are testing against a car that came out in 2011, it will be interesting to see what happens in 2014 when the '15 mustang with IRS finally starts coming out. I just would challenge a Chevy fan boy to buy a Z-28. Oh wait...they are plagued with problems in testing, etc... so they still arent for sale.
Arturo Rios Jr. (Wed, 30 Oct 2013 09:38:25 -0700): I want to see the 2014 gt500 go against this z28. For some reason I doubt the Boss 302 is faster than the GT500 at a given track.
Jeffrey Jones (Sun, 03 Nov 2013 14:53:46 -0800): Tit-for-tat. As a FoMoco fan, I'm glad Camaro is still around and pushing the envelope. Your move, Ford.
Josh Hollingsworth (Sun, 03 Nov 2013 22:14:26 -0800): i will say this they may be able to come close to a 911 but that gtr they speak of trying to be in compitition will walk all over them saw one walk on a gsxr1000 doing bout 180 and you would have thought the gxsr was sittin still and i'm fairly confident that the issue with their comparison was the driver not the car didn't seem like they were really pushing the mustang just sunday driving it around the track.
Mortimer Duke (Tue, 05 Nov 2013 12:48:46 -0800): I own both and the 302LS is definitely the faster and better of the two on most tracks. But leave it to GM to compare an in-development product against something that hasn't been made for almost 2 years. GM also doesn't mention 302 LS goes for about 60% the price. Throw 305s on a GT and pulling 1.05 isn't so terribly difficult either. Cheater rubber has long been a GM testing staple. Ever drive a car on the street with 305s? There's a reason. They make daily driving miserable. Same old pathetic GM. An $85B competitive advantage and it's still two years late to the dance claiming to be prom king. Meanwhile the Ferrari-like C7 can't sell for as much as most current GT500s and even ZL1 is lousy with rebates and incentives. Why? Nobody wants to own one spending their own money. GM needs to pay them to buy it first. GM now has trucks buyers don't want at the price and a C7 people do, but it's so marginalized that it's only cannibalizing ZL1. With Z28 cannibalizing C7, It won't be long until GM has itself back before Congress blaming the economy for its economic woes all over again. Amazing how GM could sell 20% more vehicles than Ford, while netting just $40M more profit in the most recent quarter, and that's giving the benefit of the doubt to GM that "one time charges" aren't real money.
Ken Holmes (Tue, 05 Nov 2013 20:03:14 -0800): GTR ....? Are they delusional ? GTR would spank that thing.
