Here is a statement we received from Chevrolet regarding this 2014 Vehicle Identification Numbering card:
Last night, an early draft of the 2014 Vehicle Identification Numbering system was inadvertently posted.
It is not the final document, as it does not include a complete or accurate list of models or content. As you can imagine, the VIN card requires a tremendous amount of collaboration to verify the production information for each model across all four GM brands sold worldwide.
Rest assured, when we finalize the 2014 VIN card, it will be complete and factually accurate.
Regardless of what model or option gets an LS7, unless GM decides to mass produce the engine and/or take out expensive parts it's going to be ZL1 priced by the time it's on the showroom floor.
There is no way it becomes the standard engine to replace the LS3 due to its cost and poor fuel economy. IF GM makes a standard engine change it would be to new LT1. LS7 in a 5th Gen Camaro is almost certain to be subject to gas guzzler tax.
When GM gets done with this VIN list I think it might show that the LS7 is like a COPO type option.

About the only 2 ways I could see this even remotely happening is A) a Laguna Seca type 1LE upgrade or B) A run of 69 ZL1's with a 427. Even though it has less power over the LSA, I know a few people who would die in heaven if they could purchase a ZL1 with an LS7. I would be prudent to believe it would be a super limited run wouldnt be be a regular build to order option.
