    Holy fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu..........

    Jeeze Chevy, I think your sales are down because your perspective customers can't figure out what the hell they're looking at, considering buying.

    Sales person; "It's the 1LT, LT1, 1LZ, ZR1 with the Z51 package. Pretty nice isn't it?"

    Customer looking at car;

    Well, Mustang GT PP1 301A isn't the easiest to decipher

    Hopefully there's some EB HPP vs turbo 1LE comparisons coming up. Stang will win overall due to the power advantage, I'm sure, but the handling comparison will be neat.

    I dunno, it's not that bad. GT is something not exclusive to Ford that every car person knows, PP1 actually stands for words, and 301A is a specific package. And really, the problem with the GM stuff is not so much the codes, it's number of similar codes. If there were GT PP1 301A and a GT 1PP 301A, and a GT 1PP 310A it would be more like the GM approach.

    And I would also be interested in a 4cyl. 1LE/HPP comparison from these guys.

    I watched this review the other day, and I must say i was impressed with the Camaro. Last i remember it uses the same 2.0L engine from the Euro Opel/Vauhaull OPC/VXR.
    Was a potent engine for its time but i would have thought it would have been heavily outgunned by Fords 2.3L Ecoboost but the Camaro was able to hang in there, sure it lost but it was still decent.
    Anyway, i wouldnt swap a Mustang for one, but i definately like the name more than "Ecoboost", as confusing as the naming on the Camaro's are its at least badass sounding.

    For me when it comes to these pony cars, I really don’t care how good they are on the inside, it’s how pretty they are on the outside that counts and the mustang steals my heart every time :crackup:

    It's not about how fast you get there, it's about how good you look when you arrive, amirite? :like:

    Same when they compared the Kia Stinger and the 19 GT they said no matter how many times they ran the 2 the Stinger was faster 0-60 and in the 1/4 mile. Thr comments on that video were pretty funny

    but it's a KIA! No red-blooded American would even entertain such a ridiculous notion.
    Won't somebody PLEASE think of the children? :)

    PS. oh wait, the kia does think of the children it has a back seat you can actually get in and out of without having to be short and flexible as Simone

    PPS. and the Kia even comes with Michelin tires from the factory! (sorry, piggy-backing on the "tire snob" thread)

    I like the Kia I think with some subtle redesigns and make it a coupe and drop a little weight in the process would be a pretty interesting car. Kia has come a long way though

    and apparently sells as badly as Camaros. leftover 2019 GT2 trim cars (a bunch) are marked down 26%.
    Shares bolt-circle and offsets with Mustang so my wheels are portable within reason.

    Kia and Hyundai are pretty much American. South Korea and all it's technology wouldn't exist if it wasn't for America
