Competition for GT 500 from a Camaro ZL1?

Hi folks, I don't have a GT 500 so please don't bust my chops for posting on this forum area but a buddy of mine who happens to drive a GM vehicle told me today that a ZL1 Camaro is coming for 2012 and they did an unveil at the Chicago autoshow a few days back. Might be old news to you but thought I would post.

It's a long ways before we see any at the local drive in. While I'm a not a Camaro fan, its good to see GM make the effort. If anything else gives Ford more reason to keep on bringing the good stuff.

Curious as to your thoughts?

I say GT500 still gets it, and our GT gives it a run for it's money as well.
