The arch rival to the Ford Mustang remains the Chevrolet Camaro, a model that's been boosting its popularity ever since its return to the market in 2010.
The new Camaro is a spectacular performance bargain in SS trim, but the Camaro's traditionally weird interior packaging, and its slim headroom for taller drivers and passengers, remain intact.
The Dodge Challenger has the same scope and reach as the domestics, with everything from V-6 to 707-hp Hellcat SRT editions.
It's just a little more hefty and less handling-oriented, a metric that's become a real talking point in these cars despite their checkered-flag past.
The Nissan 370Z has a hard time competing on heritage with these cars—think about that for a second—but it's a capable, quick, thrilling performance coupe all on its own merit.
