ZL1 production update - no more 2012 models being built

http://www.topspeed.com/cars/car-new...-ar126726.html

A couple of weeks ago, there was announcement made that the production and shipping of the new Camaro ZL1 was put on hold for unspecified reasons. Now, we have a few more details on this delay, and we can ensure you they are not good at all.

Autoblog tried talking to Chevrolet spokesman Monte Doran in order to obtain more details on the production delays and Doran was less than useful on what the "real" issue is, but he did confirm that GM will solve it in a matter of weeks, not months as originally thought.

He said that "a couple of hundred" 2012 ZL1 models were produced and only one had been delivered to the customer. However all models are now back at Chevroletís Oshawa, Ontario plant awaiting the fix. This means that the for the 2012 model year, GM will only deliver the models already built and that all the others will be offered as a 2013 model.

The companyís main focus at this point is to "get the car right" so that customers are satisfied with the end product.

yeah saw them all on here earlier


there's 3 articles

on http://www.camaro515.com


MOTORAUTHORITY ARTICLE:

A few weeks back we brought you news that GM had halted production of the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 for a “routine quality assessment.”

When pressed for specifics, GM spokesman Monte Doran would only comment that, “We may have found a potential issue that we want to resolve.”

Autoblog has again reached out to Doran, who advised that a resolution is forthcoming and that deliveries should resume “in weeks, not months.” Doran wouldn’t comment on the cause of the production halt, which still has Chevy dealers unable to accept customer orders for 2012 Camaro ZL1 models.

At the present time, all Camaro ZL1s previously built (including the one that had mistakenly been delivered to a customer in Texas) are back at GM’s Oshawa, Ontario, Canada plant awaiting the pending update, be it software or mechanical.

While customers awaiting delivery of their 2012 Camaro ZL1s aren’t pleased with the ongoing delay, there may be a silver lining to this particular dark cloud. If the production halt goes on much longer. GM is likely to resume Camaro ZL1 production with 2013 models, not 2012 models.

Those lucky enough to have orders in the system for 2012 Camaro ZL1s could eventually take delivery of a very low production automobile, and in the world of collector cars, low production often translates into high value. That’s little consolation for buyers with an empty garage space today, but it may be good news in a few years.

INAUTONEWS ARTICLE:

Production of the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 is not back on tracks after it was halted a few weeks back for routine quality assessment.

“We may have found a potential issue that we want to resolve,” said GM spokesman Monte Doran.
He assured reporters that a resolution is forthcoming and that delivers will begin in a few weeks time, not mentioning the cause for the production halt, which still has Chevy dealers unable to accept customer orders for 2012 Camaro ZL1 models. All the previously built Camaro ZL1s are back at the factory in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada for the software or mechanical update.
The ZL1 was scheduled to be launched this spring, but with this delay the model is looking at an unusually short model year. Doran says GM hopes and expects that when production does resume that it will do so with 2012 models, but he admits that depending on timing, it’s possible that Oshawa could transition directly to 2013 model year builds. The vehicles already built will be delivered as 2012 models and dealers have been told not to accept any further orders of this model.

All,

You can jump on me if you so desire, but I am asking for you to please not attack each other as happened in the Mega ZL1 delivery thread... I have just deleted nine or more posts and would like to keep this thread on a social basis....The speculation is ok... but trolling is not... If you're in here just to stir the pot, find your way on out...

I ask you all that you consider that while yes, you are intending to buy this car, for whatever reason, GM has decided not to release information as is their right...

Please know, that they are trying to deliver the very best platform they can...

Hey buddy, glad to hear from you. I always ask Mcfail if he heard from you. I don't race myself anymore. My son has been racing Quarter Midgets for the last four years. We race at least 3 out of 4 weekends and I work on them about 15 to 20 hours a week, so my time is over and it's his time. That's why I bought the ZL1, something fast that I can throw the kids in race on track days when my son lets me. LOL
Are you still racing down there?

...I HOPE you BOTH know what you are talking about....I know we all really wanted this car before the summer, which in Alabama has already arrived.....While I am downhearted over the delay just like everyone else and yes I do think the delay has taken some of the energy out of the delivery, I am hopeful all of this will be forgotten once Car #36 is home where she belongs.....

For the MY12, anything is possible. I for one will be pissed if I end up with a MY13. My order has been flip flopping back and forth since the first of the year. I really just wish we could get a finale answer.
