Exclamation 2011 Convertibles: Camaro SS vs Mustang GT test data

Found some comparison test data for the 2011 convertibles, just some food for thought on how similar they are.

2011 Camaro SS convertible 6 spd man:
0-60 mph 4.9 sec, 1/4 13.2 sec@109.2 mph

2011 Mustang GT convertible 6 spd man:
0-60 mph 5.3/5.0 sec w/1 foot roll out, 1/4 13.5 sec@105.4 mph

2011 Mustang GT convertible 6 spd man:
0-60 mph 4.7 sec, 1/4 13.2 sec@108 mph


It's interesting to see from motor trends early tester how the camaro and the mustang convertibles stack up to each other. I know these are not test's that were done on the same track or on the same day but it's arguable that the camaro test had a much worse test day due to the So-Cal rainy weather during this article. Just take it for what it's worth until a side by side test between the two comes out.

These times are almost identical to each other and really shows how the low end torque and grip from the camaro's chassis setup helps it even with a 300-400 lb. penalty in weight compared to the mustangs posted curb weight.

Great job as usual Camaro Team!!!
