1LE/Z28 comparison photos

i took photos from autoblog.com (which i am a lead developer for) and the ones that Firefighter posted (http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=285054) and ran them thru PicFrame on my iPhone. not the best quality or exact matching angles, but fair enough to show the differences.

im working to get a better photo of the front of the Z28 from a lower angle, to match. i also had to reverse the one of the Z28 so letters are backwards and stuff :P

i am hoping they snap some photos of the SS so we can see a closer comparison there. i personally do not like the trim around the wheels. curious why they changed the fuel door side.

kinda liking the 1LE more and more after today

Interesting lines they chose on those rear lights. Up against the sheet metal.

Tacked on fender flares are gross. That is some tacky looking stuff right there. Z/28 front splitter is ridiculous looking to me. If it works on the track great, but that is silly looking. Front and rear look great though.

Really Happy I have a 1LE now. I had thought trading for the Z28 before today................( assuming they built it) After seeing this...I would in no way trade for one. I love and admire the performance of the Z ,but thats kinda where it stops for me. Hope all the best for people who buy one , but the 1LE is the car for me...(Knew it last March lol...) Today didn't change my mind one bit.

If the z28 is another $3500 over the 1le, then that's one thing that would make it worth while. But if it's $10,000 over a 1le, I'll go 1le and make it a '13.

$10K over the price of a ZL1. I think this car will be out of most folks price range.

I love the photography at autoblog, it's why I visit that site. I'm not sure the fender flares work on this car and matte white is just weird looking to me but I think the only visual improvement are the wheels/tires and 2 piece rotors. They should leave the wheels a gun metal color so you can see how concave they are. Actually, the Recaros look cool too.

I would love to have a Z/28, but with the likely price, I will be more than happy with my car with some added HP coming soon.

At that price it should not be called the z28. z28's have always been obtainable.

I am so glad I own a 2013 2SS RS 1LE!
The 2014 refresh looks like it was a rush job with those tail lights that just look cheap. The hood just doesn't grab my attention either. All the hype leading up to the reveal had me wondering since I just took delivery on 11 March if I had made the right choice. Now I know I made the right choice...

1LE for the win. This still remains my dream car and the only car I'd sell my current Camaro for. I just have no reason to have a track car for a weekend toy. The 1LE is the best looking/balanced Camaro imo.
