I don't mind it, they're just learning from their mistakes I hope.
The 4th gens nearly zero advertisements. Not near as much as the new cars.

This car is already faster than the BOSS 302 and just as fast as the GT500 around this track. Just bump the HP up and make a couple other changes. Theres a pretty solid Gen 5 Z/28.

Keep the suspension. Shove a LS7 in there and call it the Z28. Let's make it happen. I am getting tired of the 1LE to be released. Hurry up GM!

I agree...wait for Gen 6 for the Z28 or wait till the end of Gen 5.
Don't dilute the product too fast...

Nice driving. That Charger should have moved out the way a little sooner. Looks like everybody was having fun. Where is that track? California? Can see why you would want a 1LE now.

Dilute the product? Boy are you DILUTED! LOL Nobody wants a 1LE, they want the Z/28 and the only reason people will buy the 1LE option is because of talk. MANY MANY more people will buy a car that has a Z/28 badge on it.

I know this is a touchy subject with many here, but personally, I don't care what badge is on it. This is not a 1LE model, it is an SS with the 1LE package, just like 1LE has always been, a package, not it's own model. I think it will be a great car at a competitive price. It isn't built for everyone, there are plenty of Camaros to choose from.

I talked with Aaron Link (engineer and test driver) earlier this summer and for the Nurburgring run in the ZL1, they didn't even optimize the alignment specs on the car, which was production spec with a cage and racing seat. They also did it on a real lap, unlike Porsche, which adds together segment times to get their published numbers.

2010 Camaro SS - 3:09.50
2012 Camaro 1LE - 2:58.34
2012 Camaro ZL1 - 2:52.38

Yeah, I'd say the 1LE package is worth $3500....
