Stopped into local dealer and they have no knowledge of a 2014 Camaro with an LS7 option. They are months away from getting their 2014 allotment and option codes for 2014 Camaro's.

The dealership sales staff are always the last to know everything. They are not a good information resource.

Exactly,I'm the parts manager at our dealership,and most of the salesman come see me with questions on Camaro's,Corvette's,and Silverado's because they don't know,or keep up with the latest information.
Hell GM just introduced the new 2014 Silverado's a couple weeks ago,and they don't know a thing about it!

All this TT-V6/GT-R chat seems to overlook one defining feature of the GT-R...and that, folks, is AWD.

Just imagine, for a moment, how an "AWD" '13 GT500 might time on a road course, or strip, with 3.91s and AWD?! At the same basic weight as a GT-R? And with something approaching MRC capabilities? AWD + MRC = $5Gs...if physically/contractually possible...

RWD has its limitations on street-legal rubber, and the current GT500 is the proof of that. Especially with FWD-like weight distribution...

TT-V6 is only a very short time from arriving at your local GM store...and when it does, it WILL "impress"...even "V8-only" folks...

Having said all that, I'll take an LS7'd ZEE, please, in DOUBLE-BLACK, hold the stripes...

Copo 45th anniversary

No trim line option on the 2014 camaro so this makes you wonder.This would be just a special edition to pay respect to the mighty copo of 1969. Also, most 2010 camaros should be paid off or close to so, financing shouldn't be difficult on new trade in.

My previous position was for a GM dealer and back in early fall I loaded the inventory codes into our system for a "Turbo" option for a camaro... nobody knew anything about it... but it was there, plain as day!

Not overlooked at all.. I'm very aware of the RWD biased AWD of the GTR..

I'd still take one over any Camaro or Mustang at this point.

Probably the Camaro and the SS Sedan. They've already said the SS will be limited production, so a hand made engine makes sense for it.

+1

And to add to that, there are salesman out there who do not know what they are selling currently. I would take there information with a grain of salt unless you truly do get a guy who KNOWS the brand.

I spoke to my dealer today and the new car manager who is a big guru into this kind of stuff feels that the LS7 has a very good possibility. I'll tell you if we get word in a few months my 2012 45th is going back to the dealer, hate to get rid of it after a year(probably the worst investment) but I know an LS7 Camaro would satisfy me

It will be really hard to justify a 3rd Camaro but I hope for those that are wanting it that it happens. Having owned a Z06, the LS7 is still my favorite motor!

I've wanted an LS7 powered car since the Z06 came out, but man, I couldn't justify trading up knowing that the 6th gen is right around the corner.
