Never did we think we'd be putting a Chevrolet Camaro up against the Porsche 911 Turbo S and the Nissan GT-R, but that's exactly what we did when we tested the new Camaro Z/28. So how did it do compared to two of some of the most capable supercars on the market today?

The results of the straight-line acceleration test were no surprise. The Z/28, powered by a 7.0-liter V-8 that's good for 505 hp and 481 lb-ft, ran from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds and ripped down the quarter mile in 12.3 seconds at 117.2 mph. While those numbers may be impressive, they don't look as good next to those of its opponents. The 2014 GT-R Track Edition, powered by a 545-hp twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-6, hit 60 mph in 2.7 seconds, while the new Turbo S with its 560-hp 3.8-liter twin-turbo boxer-six got there in a jaw-dropping 2.6 seconds. On the road, we found that the GT-R was actually the most unpleasant to be in, while the 911 was missing an "X" factor that the Z/28 had. The Z/28 really shined on the track, though.

"Yes, friends, despite having less power, an antiquated row-your-own transmission, and only RWD, the Camaro Z/28 laid down a time of 1:36.17, beating the Porsche by a larger margin (0.17 second) than the Turbo S clipped Godzilla (0.11 second)," we said in the comparison.

For the Camaro Z/28 to beat the Porsche and the GT-R on the track is an impressive feat so with that, which of the three would you choose? Let us know in the comments below for today's TOTD!
