The Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger are the only other true muscle coupes on the market today, but they each have a different flavor in comparison to the Camaro.
The Mustang offers better packaging and better fuel economy, as well as versions with 400+ and 600+ horsepower, if you want them.
However, we'd choose the Camaro ZL1 over the Shelby GT500, just for its better drive quality.
The Challenger looks best as a retro muscle car, and for this year, gets more power across its HEMI V-8s.
We haven't driven the new Challenger SRT8, but its Hellcat engine is supposedly rated at over 600 horsepower.
If you're shopping on a tighter budget or prioritize handling over speed, the Nissan 370Z feels more like a sports car than a pony car.
There's also the most affordable competitor here in the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, which is offered with an efficient, yet punch 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in its basest versions.
