Before this morning there was no ZL1 convertible confirmed and someone is already complaining about it being released 6 months later?! LOL. I don't envy GM, they have tough customers.

I am ecstatic that they are offering this in a vert! That's one less thing the GT500 boys will be able to throw in our faces.

Yeah, I'm guessing it will be mid 60's minimum out the door.

I too think it looks too busy with that new front grill.

Awesome! Looks like matte black carbon fiber insert isn't the only option?

Hard to say, but you may be right. I will say this ride is sooo hot I could easily give up sex by substituting it with this...

I don't know if I can take this much longer. Can we travel forward in time a bit faster? Once I got the car, then transport back in time... (gee. sounds like Back to the Future).

Ok I admit I was one of the guys on this forum that did not want GM to make a ZL1 Convertible. Boy was I wrong, that car is freaking gorgeous!!!

Now excuse me, but now I have to go cook crow so I can eat it. Should it be fried or grilled?

I'm normally not a convertible guy (considered it though), but I'm glad they're making it availablefor those that are.

And as for Ashen Gray..... I think I may have to change my color choice for my ZL1.

I finally saw Carbon Flash and liked it.....not loved it, but really liked it. Ashen Gray just might reach that "love it" level.....I'll have to see it in person first.

I love the new color! Just what I was hoping for!

I think the last time I was this excited was when I was 8 right before christmas! Lol

Great job GM! Here's to hoping the Gray is available at the beginning of production. I am all in.

Vert looks great with the top down, and I'm happy for you lovers of open top, but that isn't for me. More power to Ya.

I might have made an exception if it had been a retractable hard top. Those look good open or closed.

What I'm wondering now is if there will be an exposed CF option and grille for the '12 model year.
