I read several of the comments about this, and it sounds like a few are quite butthurt over how both of the Camaros performed.

I am starting to see why some of the wigs at Chevrolet were not sweating the competition as much as some of us were.

Wow...I knew the 1LE was good...but only 0.9 seconds slower than the GT500?!

And as usual, a killer time put down by the ZL1

All-in-all, great job by GM and Team Camaro!!

Maybe ford will drop their truck axle and get a real sports car suspension next go around.

Yes! The 1LE beat an old Boss LS time by 1.3 seconds. Maybe the 1LE will finally grab some more well deserved attention. Very impressive time by the ZL1 as well. Still would like to see a same day track showdown between the Boss LS and the 1LE.

Very impressive how the 1LE was only 0.9 behind the GT500. The Laguna Seca BOSS got beat out too and that thing is NOT cheap!

Anyone else find it hilarious that a Car and Driver segment was posted to the Motor Trend forums?

The Boss ran last year like the SS which will no doubt be the excuse..

ZL1 and 13GT500 were same day..

I'd be interested in seeing how the FE4 suspension changed things for the 2012 Camaro SS lap time compared to the 1LE and ZL1.

Has the Boss LS beat the GT500? Being that the ZL1, GT500 & 1LE ran the same day this would provide a good base
