I wouldn't count on it...an LS7 Camaro would have to be priced way too high (check out what the LS7 costs)...probably not gonna happen. Maybe a super-limited "yenko" type car, but like I said...it aint gonna be cheap.

Funny, my dealer told me he was only allotted 2 camaros for the first couple months of production. Maybe that has changed since I ordered a month ago.

LS7 (and LS9 for that matter) won't ever be in a factory production Camaro.
Simply too expensive.

Its based on overall dealership sales and the amount of registered Camaro competitors in the dealership's area.

Allocation is based 70% on dealer's total retail sales as a percent to the nation == and 30% of Sport Segment registrations as a percent to the nation......

.........which essentially means that we're looking at two things: A dealer's historic sales rate -- AND -- we're looking at the area of his/her responsibility to see what the propensity is for people to buy Sport Cars (Mustang/Eclipse/G35, Tiburon, etc) --so that we also look at the market..................so if you're a dealer in an area where virtually no one buys a Mustang or Eclipse or such -- it's gonna impact your allocation........on the other hand, if you're a dealer in an area where a lot of Mustangs and Eclipses are registered, your number is going to be higher.
