The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.2

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2011 Chevy Camaro is a head-turner with scorching performance, especially in SS form. But the trade-off is a big drop in practicality and comfort. A great performance car that starts just under $30,000, the 2011 Nissan 370Z comes close enough to Porsche performance to make you wonder.
