Ya.....sad to say that CGM is a thing of the past. Discontinued in 2012.

Perhaps Carbon Flash Metallic?

Put a bigger pulley on the crank, the belt for the s/c is separate from the accessories. That's what the CTS V guys are doing, it actually helps reduce belt slippage!

I know, right?

Worse than having to rewatch "Old Yeller." - ( not the color )


CGM with black stripes & the heat extractor would have brutally ruled.

Exactly. Overdrive crank pulley, and maybe an upper pulley; get to running 12-14 psi, LTs, CAI, tune, and DRs, and you should be pretty close in an M6. Get a stall in front of an A6, and you're there for sure Shoot - I'm thinking a good 3200-3600 stall and DRs will get you pretty good into the mid-11s! Maybe just a lower pulley and better tune will get you the rest of the way without LTs. I still want to see what kind of air cleaner and inlet we're getting though. CAI might not be worth too much... If they can keep resonators off the inlet tube it might be good to go from the factory! Lingenfelter is using the OEM air box for one of their CTS-V packages

I thought the car stock is going to run mid 11s. with all that you should be in mid 10s, no?

CGM would have also been my choice. Now, I'm looking at SIM instead, but I will see if there are any new colors that come out between now and the time that I get mine.

With all the people claiming to be buying a ZL1 including myself, I wonder just how many of us will be able to get our wish. I mean I have money down already and my dealer claims I'll get one ,but it seem to me that GM doesn't plan on building many which will leave many of us out in the cold. What do you guy think about this?

LOLWUT ?

Everything I've read indicates GM will be making as many ZL1s as they can sell. There has been no announcement that ZL1 production will be limited by the manufacturer.

I haven't read that ,but I hope your right. It's not common for a a car company to build a lot of this type of car though. I know they don't build many GT500's.

I believe the 2012 model year will be a smallest
number of ZL1' being produced of any production
year.

Reasons being:

First year of being produced and Thier will be delays
In production do to final approval.
Having enough parts which maybe produced in other
countries.
A short production run year meaning production
starts early next year and ends with the rest of the
2012 models in late May.

As far as how many are produced the ZL1 has to share
the assemble line with all the other camaro's being
made at the same factory. Plus Thier are I believe three
other types of cars being made Thier such as Regals.

The one positive benefit I see and my hope is that
because they start production in let's say January
that this will be a slow time for for car sales. Thus
an excellent time to prioritize the production of ZL1's
over that of other cars. Especially since alot of dealers
are receiving preorders for these cars.

I'll be really interested to see what the final sales
numbers end up being for this car for the first
year of it's production.

I think that we can use the 2011 Convertible production numbers as a good guide for estimating the 2012 ZL1 production numbers, as the production time line for the two vehicles will be very similar -- Q4 ordering and January production start, and the both have unique parts when compared to the SS coupe.

Well - GM's said they're not going to restrict production, but like others have posted, that doesn't mean there won't be possible delays. What's important is GM's said they will make as many as they can sell, and I think that's great.

Hopefully dealers will be able to fulfill ALL firm orders with deposits paid in advance to be included in initial allocations!!

I'm planning to be there when they open on the first day of ordering to put in my bid for exactly the options I want. My dealership is the 25th largest in volume in the nation, and I am first on their list (also at MSRP.)

I just wonder if preorders will count against a dealership's allocation? Anybody got an answer for that one?

If there's no CGM at all (I hope it's just on constraint due to the earthquake and will return) then I'll be going either black or VR.
