I'd still take one over any Camaro or Mustang at this point.
Thats like saying I'd rather win $100,000 over $40,000. How about getting a Camaro + $50,000 or a GTR?

I haven't been on much, so forgive me if I missed something, but what does right around the corner mean? 1 year? 2 years? 4 years?

Right around the corner means, "Exact year is unknown as GM as yet to even comment on a 6th Gen but everyone thinks it's soon."

Its starting to get late in the 5th gen model. I would think by now we would hear something official. A little "stay tuned" on this subject would suffice. I don't need all the details now, I just want to plan ahead.

We weren't even supposed to see this. I doubt they'll say anything more than they already did...

Don't worry. 1LE is a performance package not a model. Also GM stated that the vin card is not complete.

I am waiting as well, thats why I haven't pulled the trigger on a GT500 or Zl1 yet. If there is no Z28(i.e. LS7) then it will be a GT500 or ZL1 for me. In a few months we will know.....

The 1LE is just an option package, like the RS appearance package. Its not a trim level/model or an optional powertrain combo, so it doesn't get included

Makes sense, 1LE has always been an option package on certain trim level Camaro's. Most noticeably the Z28, don't get excited though because at that time the Z28 was like the 5th gen SS, nothing super special. Heck back in 98-99 GM used the 1LE on the Firebird Formula WS6 as a suspension package & power accessories (power windows, door locks, and etc) delete, built specifically for the track.

In 2014 the camaro will have all new powertrains and one will be a LF3 vvt which means a twin turbo v6 and it should have around 350 to 360HP its going to be a beast but everyone is going for the LS7 camaro but a twin turbo setup will be alot better with bolt ons and tuning look it up

Where did you get those numbers for the LF3? 360 HP is not 505 HP. You would have to do some bolt ons and tuning just to hit the LS7 power stock.

Besides, how do you know the Camaro is getting an all new power train for 2014?

A twin turbo v6 will not be lighter than an ls7.

Doesn't bother me at all, I'm quite happy with the 580hp of my ZL1.

Even if they came out with a SC LS7 for the ZL1 to bump the power up, I still wouldn't care. 580 is more than enough to put a smile on my face for a looooong time.

However the question in my mind is still the same. If the new LT1 is coming out, why not just use it?

Maybe since the Vette won't be using it

And the Vette always gets the new engine for a few years first.

not true the c6 vette got the LS2 its first year, 05,and the GTO went from the LS1 in 04 to the LS2 in 05. and the new vette is getting the LT1 as the base engine, so it would not be surprising if the camaro moved to the LT1 for 2014.
