and here is why you are really confused. The SS name plate on the camaro dropped off sometime in the 70's. And was not used again until the 4th Gens. in 1993 SLP went to GM and said they wanted to do something special. What resulted was the SS. Since the Z28 was already in production all 94-97 SS's were Z28/SS's. with the introduction of the LS1 into the 4th gens SS became the dominate name plate. the SS has not always been the "Top Dog" for the Camaro.

As for the current Gen the SS stands behind hits name very well. But it doesn't fill the void of a track superstar. The 1LE is a step in the right direction but still not a worthy of the Z28 designation, IMO.
