They haven't been ....that vocal about meeting demand. There will be limitations in the beginning, just as a result of the fact they still need to built lots and lots of SSs and LSs and LTs to keep outselling the Mustang.

But you're right. Nobody has an allocation number, yet. We'll have to wait about month to figure out how many dealers will be getting in the first few months, here.

Hello fellow Camaro enthusiasts

Just wanted to say "hi" to everyone on this forum. I've been reading it for a long time but since I'm planning on getting a ZL1 I figured I might as well contribute to the general hysteria involving all the speculation about the car of our collective dreams (our affordable dreams, that is). I wouldn't mind having a Ferrari 458 Italia, but when I wake up I remember I'm not rolling in dough.

So when we're all wondering what color we're going to get or how much it is really going to cost, count me in.... Worst case scenario, I'll just wait until the initial rush is over and the dealers come back down from the premiums-over-MSRP craze because of their low allocations....which should be around summer time - almost time to see what is in store for 2013! I've never paid anything near MSRP (I ordered my '98 SS for 2 bills over dealer invoice) - so if I can get a commitment for a reasonable price I'll order again.

Cheers, y'all

Zed

What do you mean restrictions? We get the same car as you get, we are just restricted on what aftermarket parts we put on. Plus there are ways around it. I haven't had to smog a vehicle in 10 years. Do you think my 438 twin turbo Denali would pass smog?
The one good thing (or bad) depending how you look at it. We don't have yearly inpections. Just a smog check every two years and if your vehicle is new it doesn't have to be smoged for 5 or 6 years.

I was under the misimpression that you all had more vehicle manufacture restrictions on the vehicles...though perhaps I should have stated that opening up the air restrictions on the engine and exhaust were what I was actually getting at in the long run. I am pretty sure there use to be a difference back in the day between a california camaro and the rest of the U.S. such as the second generation the latter years 78-81. Any information about that to verify or dispel the illusion?

Ok,, I gotcha,
Yes you are correct that in the old days there there was a difference.

So i official found out that there is going to be a very limited amount of ZL1's!!!! not lying, not a rumor. This is from GM itself. There's only one dealership in the state of Virginia that will get a ZL1, only one! for the whole entire year of 2012!!! Sorry to bust everyones bubble, but there's not going to be many made!! Sorry, spread the word!

Rumors such as this without a specific source are meaningless. The ZL1 is not a limited edition vehicle.

The official statement regarding ZL1 production from Camaro Marketing Manager, John Fitz is that Chevrolet "will do everything to match the market demand" for the ZL1.

That doesn't mean that initial production availability may not be somewhat limited to due production line ramp up and supplier parts availability issues. However, after the initial production issues are resolved, ZL1s should be available to all who want one who have a little diligence and patience.

So let's see some proof that you are speaking the truth.

How long does anyone expect '12s to be produced - honestly? I'm going bonkers over these "the sky is falling!!!"-type posts. If they start hitting the streets, in January, say, and shut the plant down in May (or whatever) for the '13 model year start, OF COURSE there's going to be a limited amount produced!... wait for it... FOR 2012!!! OMG. GM's already said they are not going to limit production. They're going to produce as many as there is demand. If they're only going to have, say, 5 months of production, of course not all dealers are going to get one, if any.

I give up. I'll just start deleting posts, lol.

I guess at the very least then I may have to wait maybe up to another year to get mine if only exclusive dealers get the first go of them. In reality, I thought as much seeing how I deal with a small town dealer that probably only sells 4 or 5 vettes in a year if their lucky. I'm first on their list ,but it doesn't mean I'm anywhere close to the top of GM's list. I guess time will tell.
