Hm....interesting

Although I think a LS, LT, SS, 1LE, Z/28, ZL1 Camaro line-up would be a bit cluttered...maybe (if this is real and there really is a Z/28) it'll replace the 1LE?

LF3 is going into the 2014 Cadillac CTS, the new CTS sedan will be sold along side the old coupe and wagon for a bit.

Just brainstorming but would they offer the LS7 as a package like the 1LE? I assume it would come with at least a brake and trans upgrade but we still don't know much about this PDF file. Maybe GM leaked it on purpose to give us a little hope but they didn't want to spill all the beans. I wouldn't count the Z28 out just yet.

Considering the LFX (which I'm guessing is what the LF3 will be based on) makes between 300-323 hp (depending on application), I should hope the LF3 makes significantly more than 380 hp.

Question is what will this cost, Z06 is much more expensive than a ZL1...think about that...
Quote:
I just checked for price of new Crate LS7 is double the cost of the LS3, so add at least $8k on the price of a new Camaro....that's a lot of money for 80 more HP....
ZL1: 54K
1LE: 37K

I would expect a LS7 camaro to be between there so 8-9K more is what would make sense. So 45-46K. Obviously, I would love for it to be more toward the 40K range, but I'm not sure that would happen.

The LS7 is a great motor and I wish they could have found some ways to make it more available. I always thought the CTS could use some middle ground with an LS3 or a LS7 in it. The jump from V6 to LSA seems a little extreme. The GTO could have used one it it's final year of production. This late in the game it seems like they might just have some extra motors laying around and no Z06s to toss them in.

The LS7 is hand built at the Performance build center, when that plant first opened it was to have a max capacity of 15,000 engines a year. They build the LS7, LS9, I believe some of the hand built LS3 engines are built there and I think a few others. Not to mention that they produce engines for the crate engine market, its most likely purely a capacity issue.

Though with the 2014 Corvette being LT1 only for a time clearly they have some free capacity probably until the 2015 higher performance Corvette model comes out.

Assuming you get the 1SS/1LE without RS package, that is the one that would be $37k
If you got it with 2SS or other options, you will be in the low to mid $50's, which is getting close to ZL1 money.

If it came out as a Z28, you may have no choice but to get the 2ss option, kind of like the ZL1, there are not many options. They will probably stick the price just under the ZL1 knowing that the NA guys that don't want the FI of the Zl1, will go for the Z28

Hey, will the hand-built LS7 have a catch-can, and if not, why would that be?

Fair question.

Ok, Well that would be great although the ZL1 still has to be king to follow its heritage. I would love to see the Z28 back. Either way I would like to see it happen. An earlier comment on fuel consumption with the ls7. The CAFE standard and with the C7 getting the DI engine that would up the MPG for the corvette so this is definitely possible so that GM can stay with in the targeted CAFE for 2014.

Never know I guess, but if it is real, I think they would leave the LS7 name to it because it is well known. The LT4 was a while ago in the corvette

Nah. Never gonna happen. Chevrolet will never put an LS7 in a 5th Gen. No such thing as a LS7 powered Z/28.
