So...2SS + 1LE + Recaros + LS7 = ZL1 $hekel$, give or take (LSA "crate" = LS7 "crate")

And 1SS + 1LS Trim/Seats + 1LE + LS7 = Base Z/28 = $47,500...+ Recaros (only) = $51,500
Plus the ABW and change of pants you will need after your first drive.

Seems to me, with forward-facing Ram Air, the 2nd and 3rd characters of this grille emblem are INCORRECT...
...and those look like excellent potential Brake Duct inlets, below the Driving Lights...

"What would a report on this site be without a little peek into the future. When asked about the ZL1 versus Z28 issue, we asked if it was possible for a Z28 model to show up since it the Z28 badge and Camaro have been together since pretty much the beginning. That question was greeted with a big smile and a bit of a chuckle"






Not sure if a smile and a chuckle is a good thing or a bad thing???

Agreed. Wasn't the ZL1 originally supposed to be the Z28? I thought it was a late name change and that it was decided that the ZL1 name was more fitting for the top dog Camaro. If that's true then why would they add a ZL1 badge to a body design that was only an option early on? I think they're just showing us a possible Z28 to guage our reaction. Looks good to me.

We can only hope the 5Gen has a Z28. This Camaro's design deserves a Z28. I must add the ZL1 is awesome. And I must say it again a 427 Z28 would be magical!

See how similar (and "different") this concept (from SEMA '08) is to the 1LE concept from SEMA '11...

"Tasty" indeed, Mac! The COPO LS7 was the "seed" for a proposed aftermarket version that didn't quite "germinate"...perhaps there's a "phoenix" out there...somewhere...
