wow...lol.

An utterly positive review, once again giving high praise to the new found driving/handling characteristics of this car and praising the quickness as well.

Damn, I can't wait.

I agree is utterly positive.

Other part that I agree is when they say the design wont age well.

Yep. I wanted to love driving the previous Camaro because it looked so "right" but it fell short for me and I bought a Boss 302 BEFORE the ZL1, 1LE and Z/28 came out. Now I'm getting ready for a new car in 2016 and Chevy has addressed my concerns -- big time. But sadly it's wrapped it in an unappealing exterior. I didn't like it at the Belle Isle reveal but thought it might grow on me. It's actually gone the other way; I really hate the car forward of the A-pillar. I like the Mustang better but won't settle on performance so I'm instead cross shopping an unbelievably wide selection of cars for something attractive and fun. (Yes, I'm shallow) Miata, Cayman, used DB9, Focus RS... Who knows where I'll end up?

My vote would be for the Focus RS if both the Camaro and Mustang are not to your liking. I was actually immeasurably close to purchasing a Focus ST when I changed my mind at the last minute and went with a Camaro. The Focus RS looks like a fantastic performer, and it has 2 more doors and a hatch to make it more practical. I think if the RS was available in 2014 my decision would have been that much more difficult, although one of the BIG reasons I was seriously considering the ST was the price and the RS is about the same cost as the Mustang GT and Camaro SS. It looks like it is going to be an incredibly fun car though.

My previous daily driver was a Focus ST. Fun car for the money, and even though it wasn't my weekend/toy car or whatever you want to call it, the FWD drove me nuts on a performance car. The RS should help that issue of course, but at a much higher price point.

I'm a difficult person to please. I like NA motors. But I am trying to be open minded. The RS is interesting as there's never been a real alternate to a Subaru for as an all season performance car and this might just be it...and then some. First World problems.

Same here. Nothing beats the sound and powerband of a nice naturally aspirated engine...

Yea people are starving in Africa, tons of people are dying on a daily basis in middle eastern countries.... and were here debating what car is better.... Interesting world we live in.

NA motors are nice, but nothing better than the amazing wine of a supercharger!
