I had suspected this with the different gear ratios and slightly shorter tires.

Glad they liked it after a whole week of driving it on the roads as well as a track.
Yes we sure did.... see post #4, #5, #6, #7.

What's the deal with the references to the trans cooler? My 2010 M6 has a trans cooler unless those two hard lines that go from the trans to the bottom of the rad are something different? What am I missing?

Cool article too btw.

I think there is a distinct difference between a track car and rce car. The ZL1 is a track car which is why it is designed to perform on the street too. Besides, most race cars are NA, not supercharged so IMO if i were builing a race car a ZL1 would not be my choice to build from. An SS or now the 1lE would be better.

I agree. It must be the sticky tires and higher gear ratio. Makes sense it would be quicker than the SS.

Keep in minds GM was trying to get the 1LE into the SCCA and you can't go into any race series with active suspensions on your camaro. I am glad we don't get the MR, costs less, cheaper replacement parts etc.

Agreed. The ATS is about luxury at the BMW 328 level and not about pure performance like the 1LE.

I just came off of a 335i because I couldn't get anymore performance out of it and I wanted a V8!

you wouldnt know all that with the way they portray in the comercials though. if i didnt know any better i would think the ats is gm's new track/street performance car and not the 1le or zl1. but i guess its because they want to sell more cadillac's and they sell plenty of camaro's.

The ATS also appeals to the broader audience vs the 1LE. I suspect, as you keenly mention, the profit margins are much better with the ATS. The other point to remember is that the 1LE appeals to the 2% of the Camaro enthusiast population. That's a very small number to waste marketing $$ on. Think about it, they are manufacturing close to 90 (87) cars per week or barely over 4,680 cars a year! GM sold 8.4 million cars globally in 2010.
