Maybe, but it is 2012 not 1969. Unfortunately GM doesn't have a true paddle shift manual trans but they've done a decent job with what they have. At 35 years old I have had 3 knee surgeries, 3 bouts with a partially torn rotator in my shoulder, and i drive in sick south florida traffic. If i had to drive an M6 it would end up in a canal. Really though, the A6 zl1 is holding its own.

If a 500 hp n/a Camaro with ultimate cornering ability can ONLY be built if offered with an OPTIONAL Automatic, to fully satisfy GM's Business Case, so be it...

Those articles are very old news, they were talking about what was to be a Z/28 and later became the new ZL1. Most of the regulars on this forum saw them a real long time ago, you can safely ignore them as the actually refer to the ZL1 and not any future Z/28.

I think it was discussed just a little bit in one of the threads (now don't ask me which one!) not too long ago. I think the consensus was if they offer it on the 6th gen Camaro, fine, if they don't, no big deal. I don't think it would be a deal breaker either way for most on these forums.

I agree. With only three or four functioning brain cells left after my partying days many years ago, old age diminishes coherent thought quickly!!

Looks like a great stride forward, eliminating obstacles with the associated red tape will move along product development for sure. Good show GM....!
