I understand in Canada the letter Z is pronounced Zed, and the car is made in Canada, but it is an American car. So the official way to say it from GM employees should only be one way.

Just like coke, pepsi and mcdonalds

It was in the agreement that got Oshawa the build rights to the Camaro, that and "Z" variant of it is pronounced "Zed" in all official GM videos.

If all the ZL1's seem orange to you, you might want to adjust the colour on your monitor. They're red

Estimated price is around $50,000, maybe a bit more.

If that's true, then that's not NEARLY as bad as i was afraid it would be! Cheaper than a 'vette!!

No one else seems to remember bt I remember seeing or hearing that it is in fact not Victory red, but the red used in the G6's.

I think that by new generation rotors he means the ones currently being used in the tvs1900 and tvs2300 magnachargers. They are as a matter of fact "new". The current eaton rotors have only been used for a few years.

Because we are Americans and we want everything our way or you can get out.

I noticed that right away also. The trim is definitely sagging and not fitting as it should. Hopefully they fix that for the production version.

Depending on where you are on the globe, some pronounce Z as "ZED"
some pronounce it Z as "ZEEE"

same thing.
But....
I am speechless. I just hope that at least 100% of us that want the ZL1
that 100% actually get to own one.
I can't wait to see the stories coming in as the car pulls up in camaro5 owners driveways... A fun time indeed. While I am cheering you own, I hope some will return the favor. I need all the boost (pun intended) I can get.
