The end is near .....

Finally, an update regarding the shipments of the 2012 Camaro ZL1 will be provided by the end of this week.

Thanks again for making Camaro the best-selling sports car in America.

finally! as soon as there was some movement on a couple cars last week, the chatter about an "official response" in regards to the hold wasn't spoken of as much. im glad there's an announcement on the horizon.

Seeing that many customer orders have been moving up in the order process since Friday/Saturday I am pretty sure it's safe to say production should begin w/in a week is my guess and shipping will begin w/in the 7-10 days it's just a feeling I have I believe GM is ready to empty the lot holding the ZL1s

Source? FWIW - I understand the coomment and who, but a link or some context would be better. I hope this is accurate.

My dealer emailed me saying he received the same message today. Not sure if it was email or letter. He was pretty clear it was an official GM notification.

Here is the wording:
A memo was sent out today regarding minor changes to all 2013 Camaro's which also made mention that an announcement regarding the plant hold on ZL1s is going to be made "by the end of the week".
2012 ZL1 #272 is a BLAST!

Now all those who cancelled your 2012 order and those who "thought about it"...are you kicking yourself now?

That's great, but does it seem a bit odd that they would have stopped producing the ZL1 for more than 3 weeks whenever all it took was a "minor change" to get things rolling again?

It'll be interesting to see if they say what the "minor change" was......hopefully it wasn't programming in more torque management to safeguard the drivetrain.

Wonder if they'll ever reveal what the hold up was about?
