  • >Says a Mustang isn’t a muscle car, it’s a pony car. >Also uses the Mustang Foxbody to justify counting hatchbacks and liftbacks as muscle cars. Me thinks Nolan is confused. Also, if you want to justify crossovers as muscle cars, I think using wagons would be better evidence, as crossovers are just modern station wagons.

  • I just know I believe that any European sports car like a bmw or Mercedes are just muscle cars with advanced technology. Like bmw = mustang being two door sports cars and Mercedes= Chrysler cars like Dodge Charger or so on.

  • The GM triplets (Yukon, Escalade and Suburban) are probably some of the best "muscle cars" you can get for under $10k. The massive steel block V8s are pretty good out of the box but they're also good for lots of boost.

  • I think crossovers can be a muscle car. For example the Audi RSQ3 Sportback can be considered a muscle car right. Strong 5 cylinder engine, 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, more than two seats and I think its quick

  • I don't think you should discount 4wd/awd vehicles. Many people are finding them preferable for practical reasons, it is quickly becoming the norm in the suv/crossover segment (just like rwd was in the muscle car era) and many sports cars are going that way too. Porsche 911 and Panamera, for example. I also think it's less of a leap to say that a muscle car can be awd than it is to say a wagon can be a muscle car.

  • Nolan makes some valid points. I've viewed the C63 amg coupe the definition of a German muscle car. Do they still make those? The are too many Mercedes options, and they all get the 4 door treatment which kinda sucks

  • We're pushing the definition here. Muscle cars = strong fast cars, with big noisy engines ideally with long hoods and flared body parts (muscles). They are also derivatives of existing regular cars. Question: Does an ecoboost mustang hit you as a muscle car?

  • Coke bottle: lay a coke bottle on its side and you have 2 curved lines, like half an hour glass. Compare this to the side of the car. That is the curve over the rear end of the car that dips in the middle and a longer, lower curve from the middle to the headlights.

  • Muscle cars are sedans or coupés, so no.

    CougarCougarپیش ماه
  • I think that when you define a muscle car you have to include its country of origin, for example, the amg c63 s is a GERMAN muscle car, a German muscle car can have all wheel drive because, the mk4 Toyota Supra is a JAPANESE muscle car, it has a 3.0L in-line 6, the demon is an AMERICAN muscle car, it’s got an 840 hp supercharged hemi v8 and street legal drag radials, so what I’m saying is a muscle car has to be beasts on its country of origin, and the only thing that a muscle car needs to based on the standards set by its country of origin, for Germany all wheel drive cars are the basis for most of their performance cars so that’s ok, in japan for their sports cars a 3L in line six was a big engine for the time in Japan. When it comes down to it muscles cars should be based on the standards set by its country of origin.
