I was just getting ready to order the ZL1 coupe....now I might just wait 6 months.

GM has always left us wanting when relating to the "biggest engine" package in a vert....at least with Corvette they have.

Very, very surprised GM let this cat out of the bag before the mad rush for the coupes was over this Spring.

I always wondered if the ZL1 exhaust would fit on a convertible. I think this is a YES!

Look like the ZL1 coupe spoiler didn't make it to the vert. Looks like the same RS/SS spoiler, maybe because of the antenna??

I think this was a smart move by GM to announce the ZL1 convertable.
This way if any one was on the list for ordering on October 29th they
could be placed on a new list for the vert instead. Personally I believe
this will be out of the price range of most current camaro readers on this
forums. Sounds like there going after some of the European market piece
of the pie. Esp since they started to compare this car to some of the
European rag tops in there press release memmo.

I'm hoping that new front grill will be on the hard top 2012 models.

GM is really rocking with new products

Amen! we need something to fall in between the price range of the
SS and the ZL1. I'm betting that if they make a Z28 they will also
have a ragtop as well.

I was getting ready to order the ZL1 coupe also, but since I'm a convertible guy at heart, it appears as though I'll have to wait a bit longer to obtain the ZL1 that I really want.

I'm guessing that the convertibles will be available about six months after the coupes start arriving at dealerships. If the first 2012 ZL1 coupes begin arriving at dealers in the March/April time frame and the 2013 ZL1 convertible production begins at the beginning of the 2013 model year production, the convertibles will probably begin arriving at dealers in the September/October time frame. Therefore, if my estimates of dates are accurate there should be a six month delta between the first arrivals of the 2012 ZL1 coupes and the initial arrivals 2013 ZL1 convertibles. I've waited this long already, so what's another six or so months of waiting at this point?.

I am very happy that Chevrolet is producing a ZL1 convertible, and that, based on the press release, it doesn't appear to be detuned in any way from the coupe.

It'll probably be a little heavier than the coupe due to bracing and whatnot...but that doesn't seem to effect the SS much, at all!

I'm so happy for all the people wanting a convertible AND a ZL1!

In the back of my head...the automatic was going to be a sales benefit over the GT500...but then we were left without a convertible so I figured things would balance out...not anymore!! Mustang, eat your heart out!

Yes, I expect that the ZL1 convertible will be heavier than the coupe is, just as with the SS, so the ZL1 convertible will not perform quite as well as the coupe does, but for 98% of the time that I'll be driving the car, with my driving skills, I'll never be able notice the performance difference, and the extra fun I'll have with the convertible makes the trade off well worth it for me.

SICK... I think pricing is going to be in the stratosphere. The current 2SS vert is about five grand over the 2SS coupe pricing. Man I am going to need a third job.

EDIT: Wanted to mention that I think the front of this car looks too busy. Doesn't stop me from setting the goal to own one. ;-)
