I think that's the key question, how much will this option cost? It could be a bargain or it could be over priced, we'll just have to wait and see.

They said under $40K in the official GM press release.

But I hope the people who wanted this step up and buy it so GM keeps listening to us when we ask for things. However I have the feeling this may be a very rare car. I have owned Z's and they are great but I don't get why people get so stuck on a name. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet

Key being "starting at" under $40,000. I'm guessing the 1LE with the same options as a 2SS will end up being about $2000-$3000 more, which is pretty good for what you're getting.

Under 3 minutes at VIR. Boss beater. Only an LS3 required. Hopefully that time holds up.

Hmmm, must start talking up the CIO for permission.

Agreed Clyde...., and I would like to add I am at a loss why they ever bothered to do this. Critical I am yes, confused and dissapointed even more so.

Actually it's a very good track pack for the SS. It is not a "complete" package, ie Z28.

I look on the other side of the fence and I know the saying goes is that the grass isn't any greener, but it looks like they put more effort into their lawn. No matter what Hognutz or anyone says it just looks like spoonfeedng without any any bold intiative. Sorry for my calousness but the sales approach has some bad vibes for me.

That's cause you want a Z28 that honors the namesake.

That would be nice. But it looks like we could have a 1LE with a forged LS3 while we wait.

A question for the Z28ers.

Now that we know what the 1LE is, what is the Z28 consensus?

1LE + MRC + LS7? No MRC? Or?

Yes...

"Enhanced FE4" has been a refrain of mine since Christ was in shortpants, but the OPTION of MRC is viable, too. It seems to work fine for the ZL1...

Actually, since the MRC'd "1LE" concept appeared @ SEMA '11, I then assumed that was the ONLY way GM would go, so "enhanced FE4" is a pleasant surprise. Thanks, Team!

...I think so, I like the more basic "analog" suspension rather than the "digital" version. Less things to go wrong...simple, basic and straightforward in design. I hope they carry this over to the Z/28. I too am glad the E/FE4 is used in the 1LE. Shoot, it's a swell deal and a Z/28 except for the fact there is no HP tweak and cold air package. Active handling is hi-tech and flashy (and expensive), but is it necessary?...I'm with Lowdown on the E/FE4! Think...K I S S......, ok Team now what about all of that for our 2014 Z/28??
