I can't see anyone buying an SS and then spending (lots) of money to add S/C, breaks, cooling system, suspension work, exhaust, tune and etc. where they can buy a brand new factory warranty ZL1. Anyone who wants a hi performance car, this is it. P E R I O D !!!

Many will throw the warranty out the window on their ZL1. Some guys can't leave anything stock. Just look at the GT500. I frequently see GT500s in the shop getting modded.
That can also be said for the Z06 Vette, etc. Guy just love to make their cars faster even if they come with 550hp from the factory.


People will also still purchase SS's and put superchargers on them. Sometimes it's easier to spend 35K on an SS. Then when you have the money spend another 10K on a supercharger, etc.
Some guys just don't have $55k from the get go.

It can also be a lot harder to convince the wife that you need a $55K Camaro.

But for the people that can afford it, getting a ZL1 will be the way to go.

Not necessarily. Maybe they don't like the cosmetics on the ZL1? Just like a GT whooping up on a Cobra, I would think that there would be plenty people in a modded SS that would like to put down a ZL1 on the track.

Thank you, thank you, thank you GM!

Props for listening to your customer base and those here that are die hard Camaro enthusiasts!

You are proving to us that the "old" GM is no more.

Now how about that TF3/Leno front fascia or at least a performance parts grille option?

so question, if u add meth injection or something and a tune, would it void ur factory warranty? i might would consider one of these but im looking at a goal of 600 rwhp so i would need some more boost

Oh, you know there will be and I tell you it is one of the things that makes a car guy, a car guy. Good, ol competition. It really doesn't get any better.
I can't wait to see some of the matchups.
