Better suspension and such is great but the HP has to be better as well, maybe not 550 hp worth like the ZL1 but at least 460-500 range.
I think your assessment is pretty spot on, although I admit I'm not paying really close attention to what current Mustang #'s are. With the 1LE being the only Camaro currently made with a manual only and the heavy duty parts where they are, I believe GM is saying to the buyers half-serious about taking it to a drag or a road course... "Here is a great baseline starting point..have fun modding the crap out of it."
