Update to the ZL1 mess. Not looking good for 2012 models

Chevy Camaro ZL1 production delay could mean very limited 2012 model year

2010 Camaro's are GM's best idea yet!!!!

Hey Bucky, not sure we will be able to hang together this summer at the cruise-ins if they don't fix this quickly. I didn't pay 10,000 down for a 2013

There are actually people who want to think a limited 2012 run because of quality issue(s) of this magnitude will make it a highly desired collectible? haha. Ok. Duh.

Deam on. Maybe those uninformed kids that are yet to be born may think so many years from now, but I'm personally going to stay away from them like the plague. Does anyone really want an early 2011 convertible with all the top problems? The Cobra had some sort of front end suspension/weld issue a few years ago, and I bet some people have forgot about that as well. I was poised to run down at the beginning of convertible production and plunk down a deposit on one, but now, I'm going to sit back and wait a little bit.

QC issues happen. I'm sure they'll get it fixed. I'm betting there will be more 2012's made if there's any chance of them fixing it soon. They're in the business of trying to sell cars and make money. So it'll all be ok in the end.

If I were going to bank on a collectible, to which I wouldn't in automotive gambling like this, I'd think if they kept power outputs up for a few more years before the EPA kills them off completely--the 6th gen will be THE one to have if it's indeed lighter and maintains or ups current power levels.

I posted a thought like this in another forum. I'm thinking that I'll be getting a 2013 not a 2012 due to the delays. Have already restructured my first vacation of the year in May. I had been going to ZDayZ in NC where they run the Tail of the Dragon. I planned to take the ZL1 even though it is a Camaro not a Nissan Z. However due to the fact that my 370Z is my trade-in I cannot take the chance of damage and don't want to travel all the way down there and not run the Dragon. So I'm going to Imports at Carlisle and the Fireman's Expo at Harrisburg the same weekend.

I am glad GM is making sure this car lives up to the "legendary" status it is fast garnering. It would be bad if it were to have some major recall. Who knows what is going on? It could have been a small thing that they wanted to make perfect or a major issue that could absolutely not be shipped. My dream is that they are doing something regarding bumping performance!! Just to make sure the headlines in August make the ZL1 look like it's taken the rear view mirror position to it's major competition. Maybe in about two weeks there will be major ULTRA GRIN coming our way!

The rumors are is that nothing is really broke but they are tweaking the engine more in an attempt to get 650 or more hp out of it. Remember the Mustang GT500 will also have 650hp.
