It's a very typical and irrelevant question from an average Joe.

Problem is, it looks much faster than it is.

Last winter I bought a 2011 WRX and Cobb flash tuned it. That was the first car I ever owned that I'd call fast.

Still, 6.2s 0-60 is not slow. Actually, I am doubtful I could launch my car that fast.

I guess the best reply would be, "It's not bad, but it's not a muscle car either".

This car is slower than a new Camry. It's slow.

There is nothing impressive about having a fast stock car, I'd rather be a fast driver.

The v6 camry is a fast sedan.....

Why do people insist on not giving credit where credit is due?

The WRX, G8, Chevy SS, 335i, etc. are fast sedans. The Camry is average when it comes to new cars. It's along the same lines at the Impala, Avalon, Accord, Taurus, and 300S.

A high 14 second quarter mile time is not fast, period. Hell, my stock 2005 Srt-4 could run 13s and it was 20k brand new.

You forgot to add the aston martin rapide, porche panamera, mercedes CL45 amg, Cadillac CTS, CTS-V list goes on and on and on.

Low 14 seconds for an affordable naturally aspirated Sedan is impressive......


Why is it so hard for people to say a Camry is fast? LOL

Because it's not. And neither is the 86.

Have you ever been in a fast car?

The car is bog slow. But most affordable handling cars are. How slow? The 6.3 to 60 time is misleading. The "street start" of 8 seconds is .8 slower than an RX-8. And a whopping 1.3 slower than a '92 Corrado. The twins have to have the slowest feeling 95 in the quarter ever.

Have you been in any of these? BMW M5, Porsche 911 Carrera, Nissan Skyline GT-R R34, Nissan Skyline GT-R R33 V-Spec II, Mercedes CLK 55 AMG, Audi S4 Avant ? Would you consider those to be fast?

"Fast" can be subjective. Just tell them the GT86/FRS/BRZ, with a simple upgrade of brakes and tires, did this at the Nurburgring Nordschleife:

GT86 clocks an impressive time of 8min 27sec placing it above many more pricey/powerful cars: http://fastestlaps.com/tracks/nordschleife.html

It beat:
BMW M5 8:28.00
Porsche 911 Carrera 8:28.00
Porsche 911 Carrera Cabrio 8:28.00
Porsche 911 Carrera RS 8:28.00
Porsche 911 Carrera 8:28.00
Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 8:28.10
Nissan Skyline GT-R R33 V-Spec II 8:28.10
Mercedes CLK 55 AMG 8:29.00
Audi S4 Avant 8:29.00
Audi TT-S Coupe 8:29.00

You have no idea what you are talking about.

v6 mustang 13.9 @ 100.1

v6 Camry 14.3 @ 101

v6 camry traps higher than the mustang......

Just admit that the camry is a fast sedan. LOL its not hard.
