Modern Muscle Cars

Originally a muscle car could be described as a monster V-8 stuffed into a mid-size sedan with whatever suspension mods were available. Times have changed. Now we describe as a muscle car any 4-seater with massive horsepower, which could even come from a V-6.

Muscle car is a term used to refer to a variety of high performance automobiles. It generally describes a 2-door rear-wheel-drive mid-size car with a large and powerful V8 engine. Although opinions vary on the subject, it is generally deemed that muscles were originally produced in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s, then commonly referred to as “supercars.” They were built for street use and, in some cases, racing. They are distinct from sports cars, which are two-seat or 2+2 cars intended for high-speed touring and/or road racing.

The truest definition of a “muscle cars” though is exactly what the name implies: a product of the American car industry adhering to the hot rodder's ideals of taking a small car and putting a BIG engine in it.

Decades later, American automakers are rebirthing the muscle cars for those with 0-60 urges and an appetite for the deep growl of a multi-cylinder engine.
