A muscle car is an automobile with a high horse power engine, modest weight, capable of producing high levels of acceleration.

So classic muscle car or modern muscle car, its still a muscle car ;)

Yeah, but don't call it that, you might offend someone in these politically correct days. Better to go ahead and call it a "well-tissued automobile" just so you're safe.

well if they use the turbo 2.0 their is plenty of upgrade. i think mallet has one at 300 with just boost chip or something. so the idea is not a bad idea.

I'm sorry this may upset some with how I see it but the new Camaro/Mustangs/Challengers and so on are " Sports Car's " Yes they are another vehicle that is carry on the name for there former brothers but I wouldnt consider a new car a Muscle car.
Muscle cars started with the 65 GTO and ran through the 70's.
Classics ruled the 50's
And So on.
I'm one is who dieing to own one of these new camaros but you wont hear me saying I gonna buy a muscle car.
just my Opinion.

if you ask me, when a car comes out having the extreme HP that this car will, then it can and should by all means be called a muscle car.

It sure is. The vette is pure sports car, whereas the camaro is the quintessential muscle car.

i would agree with the modern muscle to an extent, although as pointes out the term muscle car was used on the older cars. so lets call it a modern sports muscle car ;) and leave it at that LOL. no matter what you call it it will be nice to see the camaro name back on the street hunting down pony's.

500 is the new 300.

If this statement is correct, the only true "muscle cars" are the Viper, Z06, and Mustang GT500 (and above). Camaro only has 400 on SS (maybe Z28...).

Note: I forgot who said it, but I'd say it's pretty close to correct.
