1LE more rare than ZL1?

Found it interesting that it seems (at least in my areas of travel) there are a bunch more ZL1 cars as compared to 1LEs. The only other 1LE I have seen in the wild is a red one in Cleveland and I know the guy lol is this what other people have experienced? It also seems like dealers have more ZL1s sitting at the lot than the 1LE cars.

i'm hoping that's the case..

ZL1 has been out longer and being the high end, i'd think they'd sell more to the ones that will buy the highest trim out there... also the 1LE limits buyers since those unwilling to drive manual will have to look elsewhere.

All 7 of the dealerships I've been to have at least 1 ZL1 .. only 3 had a 1LE and only 1 had more than 1 (Rick Hendrick Chevy being the execption.. but they are the largest dealership in the southeast and said in the quarter they were leading the nation)

guess we'll find out when the official numbers come out

Besides the 2010 Pace Car the 12 ZL1 will be the rarest of all.

More rare than a COPO? oh that's right - they dont count.

I guess we'll see when someone officially announces the production figures for MY13.

btw - I think it was January before I saw any release of the previous year's model breakdown. This thread could get really long by then!

From the comments I have heard around here, other than the enthusiast, most just don't understand what the 1LE is. They think it's just an SS that costs more. With the ZL1, they see the differences in the engine and the body styling and understand where the additional costs come from. They don't with the 1LE, and most sales men around here can't communicate the performance differences because they don't understand the car either.

Truth spoken. Not all, but a good many. A local salesman didn't even know what one was. He kept "correcting" me saying I must mean ZL1 because it has the 550 HP engine and was made for drag racing.

There were around 2000, 2012 ZL1's built and im sure the number of 1LE's will be under 1500, so yes the 2013 1LE equipped SS will be rarer than the ZL1. I have friends who work at the Oshawa plant and we met up last weekend at a car show and they said they notice a bit more ZL1's going off the line than the 1LE.

All of this is great but I would gladly trade my rarer 1LE for a less rare ZL1!

I've seen a handful of ZL1s but not a single 1LE. Kinda disappointing.

We do have more ZL1's in our club than 1LE's but the 1LE numbers are growing faster now.

How's that for getting it back on track.

Sorry OP... we got a little crazy there, cleaned up and back to regularly scheduled programming

Actually the Synergy Edition and maybe Hot Wheels or Dusk could rank up there too. COPO counts in my book..

I have yet to see another zl1(other than mine) or 1le out in the wild around me, so I guess more ZL1's for right now. LOL

I've seen just one 1LE on the road in my area. In my humble opinion, the transmission has everything to do with the take rate. It's fairly rare to find a manual transmission equipped Camaro in this area. Even the ZL1's are nearly all auto cars.

That is a good point... Auto Trans is a big hit as an option in the Z. The Shelby doesn't even have that.

ZL1 vins are nearly 8000 for MY13.
