Maybe it's true what I heard. How they can only make so many LS7's due to emissions or something like that? Now that the Vette will not be using it that frees up some supply...

Please yes! I need to upgrade. All I would desire now is a color somewhat near the JetStream blue from the vette's, or the HotWheels blue.

Yes. Don't forget the blue. And I don't care if that makes me a greedy Camaro lover.

My guess is that they have excess capacity and need to make more LS7s.
Kind of sux that the 2014 wont be getting the LT series motors.

If this is legit, those should be listings for the C7 and ATS-V. At least that's my guess for the TT3.6.

If this is really going to be for the Camaro, there is no way in hell they're making the LS7 the base engine for an SS. They must be making a new trim level (i.e. Z28) to put it in...

If this is true and it ends up being the Z28 I will be disappointed I didn't wait for it

Depends. Wagon and Coupe were supposed to continue alongside the 3rd gen CTS for some time before the wagon dies and the coupe is replaced.
