.39 is not good. I wonder what the frontal areA is?
The GTO was in the .32-33 cd range.
There is definitely a gas mileage deficit for a Camaro with a .39 cd.
That's not too far off of a Tahoe or dodge ram pickup, obviously their frontal area is larger.

Gas mileage is a factor on every Camaro and every car I have ever bought.
If the zl1 is rated at 19mpg on the hwy and you found out that next year they were going to offer one with the same performance, but it was going to get 24 mpg hwy,would you not care?
90 percent of us would care, so don't say it doesn't matter.
And we are going to have people on here complaining about it and we are going to have people complaining about the cruising range just like the cts-v guys are.

I actually find it hysterical that fuel economy is discussed here as often as it is....

The general purpose of ESC is to stop you from losing control, for instance if you mashed the throttle around the corner and started to get sideways the car would realize it and save you from spinning out.

Mode 4 is with ESC off which will allow you to slide the car around corners.

Hope that answers your question.

Edit: I'm assuimg with TC (which is traction control) "sport 2" would allow more wheel spin than "sport 1"

Either color would be a good choice. This is one "HOT" car.

Official 2012 Camaro ZL1 Brochure

My salesman told me that they will not get any ZL-1 brochures. The buyer of the Zl-1 will receive one that's it. I am willing to purchase one if it comes down to that. My dealer is located in Hampton Virginia, "Hampton Chevrolet". Does anyone have a ZL-1 brochure for sale? Thanks
