Why?

To generate market hype. Chevy doesn’t advertise and the ZL1 1LE is three MY old.

I would have expected one more performance variant introduction to wrap up gen6. If there was, or was not, a car planned, it would have been included in the original gen6 business plan.

Now that the the GT500 is released...

Dave [Pericak, chief engineer of the Mustang] signed a poster of a Boss 302 Laguna Seca for me, “Al, Best Wishes, Dave Pericak.” You can see it if you walk by my office, and I’ve written below it, “Keep them in the rearview mirror because they will try to overtake.”
