The point I was making are both the ZR1 & the ZL1 are the top of the food chain as far as each model goes. The SS and the SS w/ the 1LE Performance Package have the same engine but you can only get the 1LE w/ a manual, so what is your point? I don't even know why I'm bothering to clarify my post for you since you never bothered to clarify what I meant before attacking my comment publicly. Maybe you should think a bit before making crude & classless comments dude. Guys like you just kill me, I bet you wouldn't have the nerve to speak to someone in person the way that you word your posts on an anonymous internet forum.

I also never said that the ZL1 was faster than the ZR1, Cylde. I said the auto is faster than the manual. Read it again before you jump to conclusions and down someones throat. I said "Good points, but there also isn't an auto trans on the ZR1 Vette, yet the ZL1 has it (an automatic trans) and it's faster (than the manual)."

Did I specifically spell out which model was which? No, I didn't. I also didn't say ZR1 Corvette and ZL1 Camaro. I foolishly thought most adults would be able to civilly discuss cars they're passionate about on an enthusiast auto forum w/out someone, such as yourself, coming along trying to disect my comments, trying to make me look like a fool in the process, for whatever unknown reason. Silly me, I suppose I won't make the same mistake again. Good work Cylde, you showed me, didn't you?

Show some respect and some tact before posting that kinda garbage.... or at least learn to ask a question about what someone means before you post replies. I don't know you from Adam, and I don't think I want to know you. Please don't come near my home in Disneyland, you aren't welcome as it's the happiest place on earth, whereas you are the angriest person on the internet.
I certainly had no intent to play "internet tough guy". And I certainly responded to exactly what you said as I even quoted you, I did not fabricate your original answer. All that said, perhaps you need to make your answers/explanations clear enough to reflect exactly what you mean rather than hoping everyone is a mind reader and knows what you really meant.

Nice. I heard a weasel named Tom lives near there too.

I'm guessing if there is an LS7 camaro it will be released at the Chicago Auto Show. The C7 and new Silverado have both been released now. The ZL1 was introduced in Chicago. The media day is next Thursday. Interesting these photos were leaked exactly 1 week before the Chicago auto show.

The 580HP/556lbs TQ might have something to do with it. I would spring for those brakes on a 1LE if the price is right.

Did anyone ever hear of the words "GM performance Exhaust System?"


We DO test them before you can buy them.


Actually the yellow car is a V14 that we're going to offer in 2035 -- but please keep that between you and me, OK?
Are you a yellow robot alien that transforms into a Camaro?

I want that grille..... Is interesting how it is a V6 front fascia with a mail slot, I am curious as to the grille though, I feel like that could be the give away. But I dont see why they would just now be putting the LS7 into the car for production... 6th gens will be here in what 2015? 2016 at the latest?

Same grille and fascia as the SS test mule at the "Ring"

I googled GM Performance exhaust and it looks nothing like what is on that Camaro. It looks like that Camaro was modified for dual mode exhaust. You know, to extract as much power out of the LS7.

And just like before, the V8 model will have 2x as much of both as the 4 can muster, and will sound 16x better.
