1LE ordering will be suspended for 3 months due to cold weather

Just got this from GM.

Quote:
Effective November 19, 2013, Chevrolet will temporarily suspend processing of orders for the 2014 Camaro ZL1 model and the SS Performance Package (RPO: 1LE) due to the effect of cold weather on the performance tires for these models. Again, it is only a temporary suspension that does not impact the Camaro LS, LT and SS ordered without 1LE. Order processing for the 2014 Camaro ZL1 and the SS Performance Package (RPO: 1LE) will resume on February 11, 2014.

I wonder if the tires are the only reason.

Makes sense. I got a feeling that's, at least in part, what was the original hold up from shipping during the 2012 roll out.

I've been to the plant as a vendor. It's the only reason. They can't store and move the cars outside in the lot and on trucks in the freezing cold due to tires.

Time to move those factories down south. No unions and warm weather

They should've done this last year rather than having shit tons of orders just sitting there without having given the customer any forewarning.

I think everyone who's smart will will order theirs now. So everyone can be happy! But still bad on GM :s part because they should've gave a way earlier notice . What the heck!

Actually they already made the decision to move production for the next generation to Lansing, MI. They will still have the cold weather issues unfortunately but these models are such a small part of production and it's such a short period it's not considered I suspect. Don't get why they just don't use a different tire.

Everyone wants instant gratification these days! This is not GM making an arbitrary decision this is a legit safety issue so if you have to wait a couple more months big deal.

This may be a positive for some members like myself. I am waiting for pricing to be released on the Z/28. That will be the determining factor as to whether I purchase a ZL1 or 1LE. Also prevents me from making an impulsive decisions due to a lack of patience,

Well now that's a drag... especially those using their holiday "bonuses" and pay to put a down payment on one. GM shoulda took over the NUMMI plant here in Fremont. Could crank out 1LEs and ZL1s all year long!

Doesn't change anything. Regardless of the official hold, the car would not have shipped. Then like last year, you end up with a bunch of people pissed off because their car is built and just sitting there.

And based on last year, they may start building again in February, but the cars still won't ship. This year, they didn't start shipping in mass until mid April (because it was too cold).

Likely won't make much, if any difference, based on the numbers from last year.

Even Nov. 19th seems late.

They should just ship them with Michelin's. Better tire anyway.

Just build a model car just like the one you want and go "vroom vroom" and order parts until they arrive.
