Does anybody have accurate 0-60 times for 4th Generation (1993-2002) Trans Ams/Camaros?
Too many times I see conflicting times for this generation, sometimes with later models performing better than the later LS1 engines.
The 1993-95 models had an LT1 275 HP engine
The 1996-1997 had an LT1 285 HP engine
And the 1998-02 had a 305 HP LS1 engine
If you have times out of a car magazine or from the makers, I'd appreciate it. No ameteur sites or times please
From what I remember reading Motor Trend and other such magazines, 1993 - 1997 4th Gens ran and still run between 5.2 - 5.6 sec. 0 - 60 times. I myself have a 93 Z28 and have ran in this range many times before when it was bone stock. 1998 - 2002 4th Gens run between 5.0 - 5.4 sec. 0 - 60 times.
This seems as if the performance gap is very close, but in reality it is not. The 98 - 02 4th Gens run away from the LT1 powered 4th Gens as the distance lengthens. This is proven by the quarter mile times. 93 - 97 4th Gens run between 13.8 - 14.2 quarter mile times between 98 - 101 mph. 98 - 02 4th Gens run between 13.2 - 13.6 quarter mile times between 104 - 107 mph.
There was an instance where a race car driver drove a 2002 Camaro SS to a 12.9 second quarter mile and the 0 - 60 time I believe was 4.9 sec. This was a stock Camaro SS driven by Evan Smith of Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords Magazine. Don't take this as the norm though as the averages are what I put forward to you earlier in the response.
I wish I could give you article sources but I just couldn't find them. If anything look at the source part of this response. I will post a link to a very informative site/forum. This site is even visited by an employee of General Motors who had and still has a very strong interest in the Camaro. His name is Scott Settlemire. He goes by the fbodfather on the forum or even redplanet. It is an F-Body based forum.
Hope I helped.
7.5 seconds with the 1996-97 models and 6.5-7.0 seconds with the 1998-02 models and I'm talking about the V8 engines.
