I'm quite sure there will be someone closer to you with a 1LE.

The 1LE is not a limited production car like the ZL1....

It is an option package on your regular old 1SS/2SS.

They will still be available.

Unlike this year, production dates should be back to normal next year, which should mean last order date will be in May.

I'm ordering mine in the Spring as well. For me, that will be late February, early March.
Same here man.

I'm going to my dealership today to discuss some things. I'll report back with any information I find out.

Late this year will be pretty good with owner reviews but this next spring will be EPIC. Tons of mods done and the comparisons will be great to REALLY see the difference for the 1LE package. LOTS of current SS owners "trading up" if you will...will be great to hear from!

Update:

I went to my dealership yesterday, and sat down with a finance manager....

To clear up some rumors.... the 1LE is not a limited production car. They will be built to order. The only thing that "can" happen is if they run out of the wheels, vinyl wrap, transmissions, suspension parts, or anything unique to the 1LE. This would only cause a delay not a limit.

For the fun part, we built a 1LE to my liking.... 1SS, Vic Red, Dual Mode Exhaust, and it came to $36,091.00 invoice. The next step was to push the except button, and in 8-10 weeks (give or take), the 1LE would be built. Sadly, I need to wait a few more months :(

Seeing the invoice price got me thinking.... if the dual mode exhaust is proven at some point to only be a sound enhancement, and show no gains over the stock exhaust, I may just purchase a 1LE w/o it, and have an invoice price in the high 35k range. Not bad for everything this car offers.

We also took a look at my 2007 SS/SC for trade in, and in the current condition & mileage (mint condition, no winter driving, 46k) they offered me $11,100 (not bad).

I think it's more like sound "management". It's docile when you are in areas that you might be prone to scrutiny from neighbors (and LEO's) and a beast when you are in areas that are more acceptable for it. Hooking it up to something like a mild-to-wild control would give you more control over it's original function. Advantageous to say the least.

On the Corvette. Only reason we haven't seen it on the Camaro is because GM hasn't spent the money to certify the extra horsepower. There should be an increase though. Maybe one of the SS guys that has it has had theres dynoed already.

^^^ Thats what I'm sayin. I saw a post where someone added the NPP to their SS and saw an increase. I'm quite sure the 1LE (even without the NPP) will be .3 - .5 tenths quicker on the track :P (suspension/gears/lightweight wheels and gummier tires)

I think .3-.5 tenths quicker is way too optimistic especially since GM themselves give an identical 1/4 mile time on the car as the SS. It's a track car and not a strip car. The transmission ratios inside the transmission are different from the SS so the only gears that are lower are 3rd slightly with 4th being the most noticeable.

I'm willing to bet someone will pull 12.5s in stock form. Might need optimal conditions but thats my hope :P

GM is also lazy, and at the time of the brochure release they prob just threw those numbers in there. Only time will tell, but I also agree it will be quicker than the base SS. Read some of the reviews on it. Everyone mentions it feels quicker than the SS (even though feeling quicker is a matter of ones own perception). Only time will tell....
