2011 Chevy Camaro SS | $37,195
After abandoning it in 2002, General Motors brought the Canadian-built Camaro back with style in 2010.
Boasting an engine on par with the Mustang GT, this retro-themed car should feel just as fast, but our experts say GM has tweaked the performance to please mainstream buyers. “The Camaro SS definitely shows a responsible side, making it a better daily driver and even a nice, small family car,” says Nika Rolczewski, automotive writer and owner of racerchicks.com.
“It’s not a pure sports car like the Mustang,” Bouchama admits, “but it looks great, and it strikes a nice balance between power and comfort.”
Despite its road manners, the Camaro still looks the part of a muscle car with giant 20-inch wheels, Brembo racing brakes and performance suspension.
