The 1LE should have been available with an engine option other than the LS3 426 HP. Haven't we've seen this before where GM is making bad decisions, look what's going on with Mustang in sales for NOV 2012 they out distanced the Camro by a long shot, why?
The LSA ZL1 can be sold in volume. The LS7 production cars are limited in volume by the EPA. The ONLY reason a LZ7 powered Camaro is going to be available is that the new C7 Vette will have a different range of engines leaving a short supply of LS7s for some very special Camaros.

GM and Chevrolet are not perfect, but TEAM Camaro got this exactly right.
