The Chevy Camaro Z28 Would Have Been a Brutal, Monster of a Car
When we saw the teaser of what looked like a Camaro-based Ford Mach-E competitor, we came right out and said it was time for the Chevy Camaro to die. In fact, that exact statement was based on the fact that Chevy can’t even justify the Camaro’s existence anymore. In late 2020, a new report said that Chevy was considering killing off the Camaro post-2023 when we would get a new-gen model, which was followed by news that the current model would run until 2026, making the current model some 10 years old when it will be retired. We don’t have any updates about that, but we’ve learned that previous rumors of the Camaro Z28’s cancellation are likely true, and a new report says it would have been a brutal beast.
The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro COPO Debuts With A Massive Big-Block Under The Hood
The Chevrolet COPO Camaro returns to the track in 2022 with a new 572-cubic-inch, 9.4-liter engine. The Big Block V-8 is inspired by the original 1969 COPO Camaro, a drag racer designed exclusively for dealers who used the Central Office Production Order or COPO, to outfit cars with the most attainable power from the engine.
You Might Not Like What’s About to Happen to the Chevy Camaro
Back in December of 2020 a report from Which Car claimed that the Chevy Camaro would live on until 2026, at which point the Camaro name could be called off altogether. Now a new report from Automotive News claims that the Camaro will be discontinued in 2024 along with the Malibu. After that, however, things could get very interesting.
This Dodge Demon Proves Why Big Wheels and Low-Pro Tires Have No Place On the Drag Strip
The Demon is essentially a drag racer based on the Dodge Challenger platform. Dodge made this beast for those people who wanted more from the Challenger Hellcat. A Supercharged V-8 is the appropriate engine of choice for the Challenger. Due to high demand, Dodge built a limited number of Dodge Demon’s that took the Hellcat equation and pushed it to a new dimension.
This Cobra Jet 1400 EV Is World-Record Fast
Renowned Drag Racer, Bob Tasca III, drove a one-of-a-kind Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 to a quarter-mile time of 8.12 seconds at 171 mph at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio, shattering the previous record of 8.27 seconds established in its debut last October.
Because this new class isn’t that hot yet, the Mustang Cobra Jet has been breaking its own quarter-mile record for full-bodied all-electric racing vehicles.
From deep within the bowels of Hennessey comes a very unexpected project that involves a 2021 Ford Mustang, the black and white color scheme of the Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 of 1966, and 808 horsepower of full-on, all-American muscle. Okay, maybe I’m over-selling it a little bit, as it is essentially just a rehash of Hennessey’s Heritage Edition from 2018 with a different color. But hey, this is Top Speed, and we love go-fast cars – this Mustang is certainly that, and I want to tell you a little more about it.
Dodge Will Milk That Old Mercedes Platform Even More With An Electric "Muscle" Car in 2024
It was inevitable, but it’s still a surprise. After staying mum for quite some time, Dodge has finally announced its arrival to the EV scene. As a muscle car manufacturer that caters to the purists primarily, it kind of goes against the grain to bow down to the ions. But, when the only other option is to fade away into oblivion forever, you have to succumb to it. And, that’s what Dodge did.
The company, however, kept its pride by saying that “Dodge WILL NOT sell electric cars. Dodge WILL sell American eMuscle. Well, tomato-Tomahto, but man, Dodge managed to hype this inevitability! The company announced a new EV model for 2024, and it will be a Muscle car, in case that wasn’t clear. What are we looking at? 1,000+ horses?
Check Out This 1969 Ford Mustang With Mercedes-AMG DNA
The folks at Officially Gassed have uploaded a unique video on its YouTube channel. They showcase a lot of cars that are nowhere close to being called ‘normal’, but this time, they’ve got a whole different animal.

It isn’t just a Ford Mustang with an AMG engine; this car even comes with Mercedes seats, dash, center console, and a lot of other things.
This Bugatti-Powered Ford Mustang Is Freaky Cool, But Crowds Better Watch Out
The Mustang has always been one of the most talked-about cars on the internet. Whether because of its movie stardom, relative affordability, performance versions, being a crowd magnet, or simply because it’s in the hands of people who can’t drive and crash, the Mustang is one of the most celebrated cars in automotive history. Its 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 is also capable of a very solid 460 horsepower and 390 pound-feet (530 Nm). For 2020, the GT’s V-8 received dual fuel injection, revised intake runners, and larger valves, making it even more tuner-friendly. YouTube channel “Palm Beach Dyno” shows us exactly that.
This Mid-Engined, Hellcat-Powered 1968 Dodge Charger Is a Perfect Replica of Dom’s Charger in Fast and Furious 9
Ram 1500 TRX vs Dodge Charger Hellcat: This Intra-Family Feud Has Us Hyped
The folks at The Fast Lane Truck took the Ram 1500 TRX and the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody to a drag strip for a couple of races. Both these Stellantis products are absolute beasts and churn out almost 1,500 horses and 1,350 pound-feet of torque combined. On paper, the Charger holds the edge over the TRX. But, can it be replicated on the race strip, or will the TRX get the bragging rights?
This Twin-Turbo Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Is Downright Ridiculous
The Ford Mustang Shelby 500 is the poster child for modern-day muscle car performance, but Ford Performance could have pushed it easily into supercar territory. What’s my basis for that statement? Well, I’m about to show you a video of a 1,250-horsepower Shelby GT500 that will absolutely decimate just about anything on the track.
2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock HPE1000 by Hennessey
Dodge unveiled a special-edition model of the Challenger Redeye Widebody last year called the Challenger Super Stock. The car comes with the famous 6.2-liter, V-8 supercharged HEMI engine that churns out over 800 horses. Hennessey brought this car over to its factory and equipped it with its HPE1000 Performance Upgrade package. The result? 1,000+ horses on paper, but around 800 horses on the dyno. In Hennessey’s defense, it is still more than the Challenger Super Stock’s dyno figures.
2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 By Hennessey Performance
The latest car to undergo the Hennessey transformation is the 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500. The tuner has equipped its famed HPE1000 package in this car and it now makes 1,000 horses. The changes on the outside and inside are subtle, but massive under the hood. We’re yet to hear about the official 0-60 mph time and the top speed, but it will certainly outperform the standard GT500.
Forget The Mach-E – This Is the Electric Ford Mustang We Deserved
Remember back when Ford thought it was a good idea to slap the iconic Mach 1 name on an EV SUV? Well, it didn’t go out so well and people only stopped short of rioting in the streets, eventually prompting Ford to back pedal and switch to the name Mach E instead. The name wasn’t much better and is still referred to by some as disgracing what the Mach name stood for, but things have pretty much settled down into acceptance. But, is this really the electric Mustang that we deserved? Well, after seeing this rendering, we’re willing to bet you’ll say we deserved better.
