If the LS7 option wasn't hugely expensive, I could see a revival of sorts using this tactic. The idea of an LS7 engine in the 5th gen isn't a fresh idea from GM by the way,...Camaro5 guys have been doing that rather well since 2010!
GM doesn't put too much thought toward collector cars. They don't see a dime from the markup, so to them its just another sale. If it makes 427 enthusiasts (or whatever the number is) happy, great. But otherwise? Sales x profit dominate decisions, as they do in any other company.

Winter sales are always down, but then again ... winter sales for this seasons are down a bit more than they were for the 2 most direct competitors.
