To be fair, the Camaro and Mustang were never "muscle cars." It's the reason the "Pony Car" category was invented. Regardless, the modern generation are proper sports coupes.

Only the Challenger qualifies in today's Domestic market. Though I'd argue the modern Big Benz AMGs are very much modern Muscle cars if in performance only.

Zax,

I should be able to offer some first hand input on this after next weekend (12/7). The Better Half and I are going to COTA for the AMG Driving Experience. I think it is likely that I'll get a turn at AMG C63 S or at least C63 at some time during the day. I am very much interested in the AMG GT 53 - 4 door, too. We are entertaining a Panamera or maybe an AMG 4 door as we look to shrink the fleet entering retirement.

Very nice! Enjoy!

I’ve driven and considered (and still am..) the AMG GLA43. I love the car, and think it drives fantastic. The new one, even more so. A few people in my apartment complex have them, and have picked their brains a ton on them. My dad has a AMG c63 and it’s a fun car.

By the numbers, the Chevrolet hits 60 mph from a standing start a little quicker (4.1 seconds) than the Ford (4.4 seconds), thanks in part to its well-tuned launch control system and slight weight and torque advantage. The quarter mile is a little tighter—less than 0.1 seconds separate the two cars—but on a race track, neither of those straight-line measures matter all that much.
Braking, on the other hand, is never optional, especially on a twisty road course. Despite both having Brembo brakes, the 1LE offers about 10 feet shorter of a stopping distance as compared to the PP2 when hauling down from 60 mph. On most horsepower-friendly tracks, the Camaro will also best the Mustang by at least a few seconds, with most drivers commenting on the Chevrolet's better body control and more intuitive chassis compared to the Ford. In fact, the 1LE is comparable in terms of lap times and feel to high priced imports like the Audi R8 V10 Plus, Porsche Cayman GT4 and Nissan GT-R.

So in a word: YES

Well butter my backside and call me a biscuit! :D
