New Camaro Z28 or Vette ZR1 are more technical marvels so I don't consider them muscle cars but I may be wrong.
E39 M5 gets basically the same gas mileage as you, is a V8, and doesn't have the honda r!cer sound your convertible makes. Your car sounds wimpy.

The 2014 Camaro SS makes the same gas mileage as the E46 M3

all these grown men in here with convertibles that don't even live by the beach crying about gas mileage

hahahhaa

ahahahahahah

hahahahaha

Quote:
The more powerful version of the SS, with its six-speed manual transmission, will return 16 city, 24 highway miles per gallon. Opting for the automatic will raise the highway figure to 25 mpg.

Hearing these vettes a few years back at VIR was music to my ears. I thought they sounded better than the E92 M3s in the GT class.

Someone piss in your cornflakes? I met him twice, and he's one of the most down to earth guys I've ever met, not to mention, extremely knowledgable on anything that has to do with automobiles. If you want a car review, read car and driver.

You ****ing colossal idiot, no one is comparing gas mileage. Anyone comparing that is being a moron. I'm taking abt stupid pointless revving. OP wants a cruiser for his Sunday driving in town. No chance to open up throttle except in parking lots in park. I think that's a total waste. I haven't revved my M in idle unless it was a mechanical test of some sort.

I just wanted to hear more from the GM guy, that Camaro looked cool, and I'm usually not a fan of them.

My Ride: Cabrio. Stick.
the retro look is jys so passe'. i go further, i think they look dorky. i'd get tired of all that noise & rumbling & bumbling & hideous gas mileage real fast.

every time i see 1 of these i have to look who's driving &, yup, sure enough, it's a 60yr old grey or bald headed dude trying to re-live his youthg cuz he couldnt afford 1 in high school.
