Guys I'd love an LS7 in anything. An LS7 in a 1LE would be a BLAST. Problem is that car would cost about the same as a ZL1 and be watching ZL1 tail lights on every lap.
Also some are posting "GM could sell so many more if it weren't going to be the most expensive Camaro". You assume there is an endless supply of LS7s. I think that is going to limit production. And if production is limited and you want a car NOTICEABLY faster than the ZL1 you throw everything at it and remove the rest and charge what you can get and rest on your laurels.
I realize that doesn't make many happy but it is what it is. And that is simply the king of all pony cars ever made.
