Both the Porsche 911 GT3 (991) and Chevy Camaro Z/28 are track focused machines. They aren’t often compared because of the price difference, but they have a lot in common.

The Z/28 is the more analog of the two. It in many ways is more similar to past GT3s than the modern 991 GT3. The Camaro doesn’t have as many computer helpers and it comes with a traditional six-speed manual transmission.

The Chevy is taller, longer and weighs more, but it outputs 30 more horsepower. The V8 is especially strong in the lower RPM ranges compared to the 9,000 RPM revving 911.

But is the Porsche worth the much higher price tag? There is no question that you get a better quality product, but is it enough better?

This video puts the American muscle car and German sports car through a comparison on the track. It shows just how capable each car is and lets you know what makes them so good when driven hard.

Recently, we asked you if you would choose the new Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 or the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28. The response we got on social media to the question was pretty good, especially from all the folks over on Google Plus. On that one social network we have received over 300 comments on the question.

The choice is a tough one as both will be competent track cars. Neither may have the finesse of something like a Porsche, but both have a lot of power and they will handle pretty well on the track.

We have put together a video of some of the responses we received from the post. Check out what a few other readers had to say and then let us know what you would choose in the comments.

Recently, three very powerful American Muscle cars have been released. The Ford Mustang GT350, Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat are all not only powerful, but they can actually handle pretty well on a track.

The Dodge has the most horsepower with 707 and can eat through a set of tires like nobody’s business. The Ford and Chevy both have over 500 horsepower, which is much less than the Challenger, but they both weigh less.

Styling of all three is great and on a track they would be very close to each other. So, which would you choose, the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat or Ford Mustang GT350?

You Choose, Shelby Mustang GT350 Or Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

Both the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 and Shelby Mustang GT350 are high performance American muscle cars. But these aren’t your Dad’s muscle car, these can actually go around corners very well.

The Camaro puts out 505 horsepower from an LS7 V8 engine. It also features a wonderful close ratio six speed manual transmission, performance suspension and some weight reduction over the standard Camaro.

The Shelby Mustang GT350 is what everyone is talking about right now, partly because it is new. The official performance figures are yet to be released, but we do know it will have over 500 horsepower.

But the big thing with the new GT350 is the re-worked suspension. With its performance tuned independent rear suspension the Ford has finally come to the 21st century.

From a performance stand point both cars should be pretty close on the track. Depending on the final horsepower figure the Mustang may have an advantage on the drag strip, but when you throw in a few corners and it could be either car’s advantage.

So, which would you choose, the Shelby Mustang GT350 or Chevrolet Camaro Z/28?

You Choose: Mustang King Cobra, Challenger SRT Hellcat Or Camaro Z28

High performance American muscle cars can be a ton of fun. At one time this type of car couldn’t handle a corner to save its life, but these new cars can actually take a turn very well.

But which high performance muscle car would you choose, the Ford Mustang King Cobra, the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat or the Chevrolet Camaro Z28?

The Camaro is the low power car in this mix. It only has 500 horsepower, but it is a sharp track focused machine.

The Mustang offers over 600 horsepower and can run the quarter mile in 10.97 seconds (on drag tires). The only downside is that one must buy a GT and then add on the parts to make it a King Cobra.

The Challenger offers the most power with 707 horsepower. It may be the heaviest of the bunch, but it really looks the part and it can run the quarter mile in 11.2 seconds on street tires (10.8 on drag radials).

So, which American performance car would you choose?
