They do, it's called the GT500 and it will anally rape the 420HP camaro in the 1/4 and mod for mod.

The GT500 costs 20k more. Don't know how much you are bringing in, but that is a big deal to most of us.

I like the argument about just modding the GT with the factory SC for less than the Camaro. The same argument could be made about modding the SS to blow away the GT500. Im sure 20k in mods to a stock SS would blow away a Shelby.

I still think the base GT should have been 350 hp with a 270 HP DI V6 for a base. Oh well, Ill just stick with my 65. (where I belong anyway)

Maybe when they first came out. They're easily had for MSRP or less now.

So whats the price diff. between the new camaro and gt500 like $7,000. I know a place that will put a procharger on for that much. With just 5-6 psi would put the camaro around 615hp. Like 520-540 rwhp. That perfect for me I think that kind of hp is just right. I've had 2 LS1's in my car history and never had a problem with the motor so I think the LS3 would be the same.

Two big complaints:
1. Needs factory stock bullitts.
2. Needs some kind of a read deck wing like the S197

Now I know everyone here is complaining about the engine. For all we know a Boss 302 package will be offered that will give us the power we were hoping for so badly. I see nothing wrong with having a slightly polished 3v under the hood for the GT. Keep in mind the GT is supposed to be the base of V8 packages. Plus you guys are competing just fine with the vehicles that are on the road as it is right now. If you think the camaro's are going to be crazy fast I would think otherwise. They are pretty bloated. Looks like the new GT is a bit more streamlined, almost like it may have shed a few lbs. Let's keep our fingers crossed for that. Maybe Ford realized shedding pounds can make up for lack of hp in this new ponycar market.

I like how the new model looks, however I still prefer the 05-09 model because it has a more retro feel. And without adding more power, I don't see the need to upgrade.

i said this in another thread.. this reminds me of the 86-87 transition than anything else..... i believe in overall look it is not more than the 86-87 change but actually cosmetics of the '10 is way more than 86-87 was just what headlights and tail lights? and the GT body kit option and i said beofe this may drive 99-04 owenrs to buy.. but i dont think many if any 05-09 owners will noit go for another loan for this... other than a special edition car

+1 definitely feels like 1987 all over again. not really the big changes I was hoping for. infact some of the changes I don't care for at all... such as the rear end. ah well i'm keeping my 07 and waiting for the '11 or '12 year model when we can expect a totally new car and I'll see how that one goes. In a way I'm kinda glad because now I don't have to worry about trading in my car and taking a loss lol.

But isn't it a good thing that they didn't change the engine? Now you can upgrade Mustangs and just switch over all your power-adders! They should fit under that new hood, right?
And there is still a spoiler delete option so you might try adding a more traditional wing if that's a preference.
