IMO you can't really enjoy as much with an AT compared to MT.

From a marketing stand point yup, otherwise they could take a big hit in sales and future projects such as this. Then all of us will lose down the road.

Absolutely! I'm ready to buy it, however, I won't buy it unless it has this option.

I think it's a big fat fail that they don't have it in the Auto.

Typicaly, you can better afford a car like this once you reach a certian age. For most, that age is past the point where the thrill and allure of shifting gears is gone but you still want to drive a power car.

FAIL FAIL FAIL.....................

I agree about the marketing. Look at the new Ford Raptor. Amazing off-road desert truck that Ford successfully is selling to people who will never take it off-road or to the desert.

Same with the ZL1. Sell it to people who buy it for other reasons than M6 enthusiasts. Who cares? More important for us that Chevy makes a profit so we can enjoy our toys.

Thanks for the responses guys. Don't get too down on GM so quickly. No auto was announced yesterday however what I have been told is what we have been told all along with this car..."Have faith". The GM guys are definitely listening and have heard the cries for an auto. Keep the responses coming.

Need a third option, I don't personally want the auto, but hope it is an option for those who want, or need, the automatic transmission.

I won't trade my 2SS auto for a ZL1 unless there is an auto. I drove manual for over 30 years, but the modern auto is a whole different thing.

I considered a manual when I bought my camaro. I live in an area with ALOT of stop signs and traffic, so it really is not enjoyable for me to be constantly shifting at lower speeds. I can personally enjoy my car more with the auto

I vote no. I see the car as a true race car/track car and to me if they make it with the auto it will just detract from the essence of the car. But really I could care less either way, I won't be buying one.

If they do offer an automatic, they better not put any active fuel management stuff on it like they did with the automatic SS. Same Supercharged LSA engine in both the manual and automatic would be perfect.
