Here Is The Camaro Z/28 VS. 911 GT3 Showdown You've Been Waiting For

From day one, the stripped-out, competition-focused Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 has drawn comparisons with the Porsche 911 GT3. They're mean, no-frills, naturally aspirated beasts; hyper-evolved modern versions of legends built with track days in mind and little else. » 12/30/14 10:20am 12/30/14 10:20am

Can The Camaro Z/28 Hang With The Porsche 911 GT3 RS?

The comparison between a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the new Camaro Z/28 seems as ridiculous as Chevy actually making a track day car out of the Camaro, but it actually makes some sense.

Can The Porsche Cayman GTS Beat The Original 911 GT3 On The Track?
