The smartest move IF you want to buy a plasma might be 2014--the last chance for the best that Panasonic will ever make.
I don't necessarily agree with that.
If 2014 plasmas are notably better than this year, it would likely mean a new platform and that platform would likely be used into 2015 at least. There is little financial/cost incentive on Panasonic creating a new platform for just one year - the last year before discontinuing plasma.
If 2014 is the last year, I strongly believe they will be using the same platform as 2013 which would likely mean very small improvements by that point unless the ZT60 is a real ass-kicker and maybe that panel would be expanded further. We know the ZT60 is a new panel.
