I think the LT line will be the new DI engines.

You are probably right Justice Pete, the cost would be high and the performance, although better than the LS3, is not that much greater, especially with the weight of these cars. Now if they shed a few hundred pounds thats different, but that would cost a lot

My prediction. 1LE+LS7=Z28

No auto. Manual only like the ZO6.

Sorry. My sarcasm got lost in the excitement. There is a hardcore group of 5th Gen enthusiasts that have been campaigning for a Z/28 on the forum. They collectively built it here.

Hmm 2011 2ss I got was $35,000, however prices have been going up

You don't buy a LS7 to boost it.... You buy it to turn high freckin revs for long periods of time with no heat soak.

I knew there was a reason why I havent traded my modded 2010 SS for a ZL1 yet! I have wanted a 427 Camaro ever since a school mate had a COPO for his daily driver back when they were just cheap gas guzzlers!

As others have hinted at, I think they are using the excess LS7 production from the intro of the C7 and absence of the Z06 and 427 convertible. Cafe standards will be kicking in soon too so this may be a last gasp for the 427 before they phase it out altogether. I don't see the Z28 getting mag ride though, unless it's an option on top of the base price.

Same here. I'll be picking up my ZL1 in a couple of days. I've been waiting 6 months for it. I have to take it. I can't wait any longer. I'm getting old.

True but those that say it doesn't take boost well don't hangout with all of the Z06 guys I hang with who all have boost......

And they are some of the fastest things out there.....

Yes, 2ss starting point is $37k in 2013, add the 1LE package, it is now $40,500 without any other options like NAV or the Dual Mode exhaust or RS...so very easily would get to low 50's if you add $8K or so for the LS7....and you know if it's limited, there will be markup....
