I read as saying they are staring production of the car around xmas time.
They already have a number of test mules out being driven by there staff.
Plus some of them will be, 'I would suspect' running on some equipment testing
the different weather conditions "perhaps non stop". We still have close to full three months before the new year starts.

For my own selfish reasons, I'm hoping production starts in February/March. If production does start in early January as planned, it's going to be really painful to accept delivery in February. The thought of having to store it right away for a few months (and perhaps drive it home in the snow) seems like some kind of twisted, sick joke. The horror!

I'm hoping to pick it up around the end of February, this would make
a great birthday gift to myself . If the weather is bad, I'm hoping
that my dealer can hold it for me till I can drive it home safely.

Vettes have high limits, but when they let go, it can get hairy. The ZL1 will probably have gentler break-away characteristics, and be less twitchy.

The most interesting part of that video for me, was watching the
test car driving on the wet road conditions. The ZL1 seems to handle
the wet roads really well considering all the power it has.

I never understood the reasoning behind the checkered pattern. Does anyone have any insight into this?
