Most people buy (and accessorize) vehicles based on appearance.

Plus, it's not that the auto V6 won't perform well. I suspect that it will perform very well without needing a LSD. Modern traction control and good suspension should make it work well.

In the meantime, an open diff is safer in some situations when the rear could kick sideways from spinning wheels (big difference driving my open diff pickup and my dad's LSD pickup). It's also cheaper, and the auto V6 needs to be cheap more than any other Camaro.
