See the post above mine. Why would it be any less than 5k more than a coupe?

That Convertible looks awesome! Thats great that a convertible version of the ZL1 is going to be made for people that want one! The price will be unreal though im sure.

It wouldn't, I agree. My question was a sideways crack at your coupe price guess.

Looks like they blacked out the small front area in front of the upper grill.
Just wondering if that will be also in place for the 2012 model ZL1, i'm sure
this is a proto type, but it looks pretty close to the final rendition to me.

Ok gotcha...yeah, but we all know from reading important posts on here the price is 57 at least, so 65 for a convertible is no stretch by any means considering the extra bracing etc.......

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.
a zr1 or z06 does not come in a vert

I wonder if they're going to limit top speed, because I just noticed the modified rear spoiler...

There was quite the happy dance in my hotel room when I saw the news. It lines up with lease expiration of the company car and everything. Now, to find a dealer that won't bend me over with markup when the time comes. Have not had good luck with the nearest Chevy dealer in the past :(

I'm usually not a fan of verts but I would consider waiting another year for one of those. Decisions.....decisions....

Wow, you can clearly see the CF pattern on the hood insert. Looks good, though I am not sure I don't prefer the Flat Black. Love the color, wish they had the cross drilled rotors.

This color and grille are the hotness. Perfect.

I'm very surprised nobody mentioned this yet, but the carbon fiber hood insert on this car is actually a carbon fiber finish! Look closely at the pics posted above by Dirty D. I wonder if this will be an option for the 2012 coupe. I want.

Best thing that could have happened for those wanting a 2012 coupe.
Vert guys, simply step aside, get in the 2013 vert line, and give up your previous spot on your 2012 coupe... You will need to wait...
2012 coupe guys/gals...please step forward so we may take your order!

Finally....Proof there will be a ZL1 for everyone!

Watch my banana if you don't agree...

The vert looks really sweet and the grey matches it nicely. That's a great picture of the carbon fiber hood, looks like they made it thicker to me. All the other pictures the fiber hood looked alot more like plastic to me and thinner as well. The hood just has a more complete finished look now compared to the earlier pictures. Will this be how it looks on the 2012 as well , if not that would sway me to wait for the 2013 models. Please clue us in before we go and order at the end of the month.
