  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Dyno Shows 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS Out-Muscles the Corvette

If you go by manufacturer ratings, the Corvette Stingray makes 460 horsepower, and the Camaro SS makes 455 horsepower. That’s not a big margin in the Corvette’s favor, but it at least gives Chevrolet’s halo car enough of an edge to say it’s more powerful than the quite-quick V-8 Camaro.

If you watch the video Hennessey Performance just uploaded, that might not be so true. On Hennessey’s dyno, it shows the Camaro SS making 431 horsepower at the wheels. In Hennessey’s dyno test of the 2014 Corvette Stingray, you see a significantly lower numbers. Specifically, that car put down just under 400 horsepower.

-

-

The car being tested had an automatic transmission, and the Camaro had a manual, but Hennessey reportedly only got 410 horsepower out of a manual version.

-

There are obviously quite a few factors that can affect how a car performs on a dyno, but you wouldn’t expect the Corvette to make 21 horsepower less than the Camaro on the same dyno if it was actually a couple horsepower more powerful.

Assuming Hennessey’s results are accurate, that makes the Camaro SS even more of a performance bargain than we thought. And if Chevrolet sees the Camaro being more powerful than the Corvette, the only solution will be to give the Corvette more power. Since when has adding more power been a bad thing?

Being the same engine that is interesting. Being two different transmissions, that might explain for the loss.
