The ZL1 is supposed to practically be a dragster, and it doesn't seem to dragst as well as the GT500.
That price point is about what a lot of us here see it coming out at, 45-48K, depending on options. For what it's capabilities will be, there will be a lot of interest at that price point.

Agree with you about the X bette motors. BUT i just cant imagine GM would have a production camaro with a bigger engine than the Vette. even if it makes less power.

Yeah, the world would just be a better place with an LS7 Camaro

I don't agree. It seems that it was built more for turns than a straight line. JMHO

Incorrect, the COPO is the dragster. The ZL1 has a huge focus on suspension and handling.

And if the vin sheet stays the same so will the ls7/z28.... but I bet GM will badge the hell out of it!!

Are these LS7s going to explode like the ones in the Z06's from valvetrain problems???

This makes me waiting till '14 more exciting , I've been holding out this long for a new camaro , and I planned on ordering one this summer.
Years ago I said I would never buy an SS Camaro cause of the way GM ruined the SS logo (in my mind) over the years putting it on anything to make it sell but I always hoped a Z28 would come back out and I'm still hoping ..... lol keeping my toes crossed , if not oh well the Camaro is still bad ass no matter what model

Not sure why all the surprise about a Camaro with the LS7. I was surprised that this package wasn't released before the ZL1.

LIVE at SEMA 2008: Four Chevrolet Camaro Concepts and Accessories Revealed


GM officially present 4 Camaro concepts at the SEMA show 2008. We knew we’d see some variations of the Chevrolet Camaro on present, but the facts had us aching to see the in self. While each has their own rare pull, the LS7 Concept stood outmost.

Designed to be something of a bewilder-back to the glory being of the muscle car era when somebody in the know could toddle into their district Chevy dealer and limit the COPO box to order up a chase-bred, fire-breathing 427 V8 in the engine bay, this LS7 Concept shows what 2010 Camaro shoppers might be able to do with a great letter-prose struggle. The LS7, as its name implies, skin the GM Performance Parts LS7. Crate motor tuned to fabricate 550 horsepower gratitude to several GMPP performance accessories.

I think this partial PDF was a deliberate leak by Chevy. This is a Christmas present from GM to all of us. Happy Holidays right back at you GM.

And has been said here there is more to come. GM has learned as Ford already knows to keep the good stuff coming to keep the interest in the car. Now they understand how this will generate direct and rub off sales in the future. This is such a break from the past in the old GM where the bean counters ran the show. There have been many dark days for Camaro fans until the last few years. And we can see how the Camaro will get even better over the next 5 years. Waiting for the ultimate Camaro will be a never ending game.

But the sweet spot is the 1SS 1LE. World class performance at a somewhat affordable price. And this will continue once the LS7 Camaro comes out. Now dealers will stop trying to gouge 1LE customers with ADM. There is a new hot Camaro on the block.

Good luck finding an LS7 Camaro under $50K. There will only be a limited number of these if it is true that there is cap on LS7 production. But maybe that is the best fate for the Z28. It will be car that most of us can only salivate over when it crosses the block at Mechum. It is probably more interesting to admire Angelina from afar rather than actually go out with her.

Notice the 1LE hood. 1LE+LS7 = Z28? I would bet a few more goodies will be thrown in.
