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 dont care to much for a automatic trans, But it still should be an option for those who want it.

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.

I agree it should be the same LSA engine in both. If they can put a fuel saver option that can be easily turned off then cool but if not I don't really care.

Yes, absolutely.

Who cares if it's offered with an automatic? Who is going to lose sleep at night because, oh no, not every ZL1 out there has a stick in it? Worry about your own car and your options the way you want them, and let the other guy get his car his way, not your way. In spite of how powerful the ZL1 sill be and how good automatics are these days, yes I'm sure some GT500-driving a-hole may see an automatic and laugh, right up until you blow past him with computer-shifting awesomeness. Who's laughing then?

Well then they should take the AC, power seats, back seats and all out too.
