Being that the Hot Wheels if fully equipped with luxury items will drive the price to a few thousand below the ZL1 due to the price difference by the LSA and LS7

I guess we're talking base packages (me) and loaded (you). If that is the case we're right on target.
The Hot Wheels "look" is very racy IMO and would fit the Z28. I would agree frills are not necessary however others may wants certain items. I would need a/c and a stereo otherwise all else IMO should add to the sportiness.

GM would be on crack, speed, salvia, weed and OxyCotton not to call this the Zed28


So true...

I'll never forget the very first time I sat in a 5th Gen....the IVER at INDY. WHAT a weekend!

I know, I know...I cried tears of joy when I saw that silver LS2 (actually an LS6) roll out onto that stage... and I'll never regret buying my SS 2 years ago. But DAYUM do I want that 1LE. Shit...call it a Z28, call it a 1LE, call it an OPTION to check as I order my SS...I don't give a damn! But, THAT is the car that I'd really love to have right about now.

Well....remove the suspension from my current SS, replace it with the magnetic ride and wheels and I'd probably be happy...

Seriously, if I could manage it, I'd buy it.

A nice bump to 500hp would be nice. I think an LS7 would be killer, but being realistic, that probably won't happen. Too much money...

However, a bit more power would satisfy more than enough. More than an SS, but still not in the realm of the ZL1. A true road race machine...little heavy, but that's what that suspension is for.

Weight.



On a side note, we'd all like to see this bad boy shed some pounds. I'm sure GM would too! Heck, that would totally send road racers from every nook and cranny in the Camaro world flocking! But, the sad reality is that there really is not many places one could cut weight from.

Wheels....they already did that by design. They cut out parts of the wheels where it was just extra added weight. But, that makes the wheels cost a tiny bit more.

Body panels to composite type panels? Sure, it could happen. But, that's going to be front fenders and doors. I doubt they are going to do doors as that might play into safety aspects. Might only leave front quarters. Heck, the entire back end and top are all one piece. So, that leaves the hood (which is already aluminum) and the trunk lid....kinda heavy there. Doing anything with those is going to cost some cash. Shoot, they might as well carry anything they design there over to all the other models to make it cost worthy.

Power seats? Sure, you could get rid of a 2lb motor. Not much there to really take out.

Power windows to roll down windows? Will NEVER happen. Manual roll down windows already weight more than power windows. Ask Scott. Not going to happen.

Radio delete and speakers...amp....heck, that would save a few pounds! But, who would want to get rid of that?

I mean...where are you really going to save weight on this?

I don't think there really is a whole lot one could do to save that weight. Maybe all in all .... a total of 80lbs? IF THAT?



So, getting back to the 1LE. What's easier? Cut weight or add more power? I think it's a no brainer.

GM already has a WIN on the suspension and mag ride. Just add a few more horsies under the hood and it'll be a perfect package.

Again, if I had the means.....



....John, Cheryl, Al, Scott....


.................You'd see a new Tom Henry thread started where I'm ordering a new 2012/13 Camaro 1LE/Z28 (whatever...lol)

But I LOVE it. It's perfect.

I'll agree with that. The 1LE with an LS7 named Z28 would be beyond words.

Right there with ya!!! (Except for the last bit...)

If both the ZL1 and the 1LE were available for order several weeks ago...I'd probably have picked the 1LE, added some headers an intake and called it a day. What an astounding package - and a good value, imo!

I think as evidence of the previous post with even Joe agreeing, this is one that would be a HUGE WIN.

For those who still may question the "validity" of an other-than-ZL1-but-greater-than-SS Camaro "entertainer", the answer will become oh-so-apparent in 7 days...when the ZL1's price is finalized...

If GM wasn't considering a meritorious fill-in (in PRICE and in DYNAMICS) between the SS and the ZL1, we wouldn't be blessed with a 1LE (and the previous SSX) to ponder...

Stay tuned...this is REALLY gonna get interestin'...

i hope it's around the same price as the SS so we can have a choice for which v8 we want besides just the SS or ZL1 without the huge price differential

A 1LE would be nice, but I wish I could afford to trade for a 1LT Convertible and I would be happy. Not that I am not happy with my current Camaro, just having a Vert would be the icing on the cake to me.
