In this day and age, an up-optioned V-6 like the rumored "executive edition" will do more to promote V6 sales than taking away options.

The V6 IS the key Platform for continued Camaro success...PERIOD!
Thanks for stating the obvious... still has nothing to do with the thread or whether there will be a 1LE option. The 1LE is a low production option for us nutcase fanatics which is the point of this thread. Youve gone off on a tangent (and I've stupidly followed).

Absolutely... a low option fast car, while great, does not a high volume car make....

Because building a BIW from the ground up is cost and time prohibitive for someone who just wants to race showroom stock, AS, or pro-level autocross, and classes like that. Not everyone who goes racing has a full race shop to build a car like that.... a LOT goes into building a BIW....

And a 1LE car can be used on the street as well...

A 1LE option would be very low volume and one that we (for those who like a 1LE stripper/sleeper) will likely have to build ourselves...either using an LS or a 1SS as the basis.

Also agreed...but that is fodder for another thread...

Regardless of whether "more is better", "less is more", or ???, the V6 is CLEARLY what GM, Camaro, the public and CAFE must have...in more flavors... a recipe Ford has used very successfully since '64, continuously...

2015 (and its debilitating mpg requirements) is not that far away...and the current fuel-swilling 6.0 L+ V8s in porcine chassis, as well-engineered as they are, are doomed beyond that date. The future starts right about now... Lighter is better, carbon footprint IS a reality, and nimble is best...

Bah, screw carbon footprint. I am gonna buy a 2014 if that's the last of the V8's.

The CAFE standards have to be in place by 2016, not 2015, and they are for fleet averages...some V-8's can still exist beyond 2016.

I was doing some searching about the 1LE (I didn't find what I was looking for ) and stumbled upon this thread. I found it interesting and thought some of you might think the same. I thought I would revive it for the fun of reading the speculation from 2009.

Enjoy!
