How many ZL1 to be produced in first year?

I've asked this in numerous forums but no answer. I'll try it here.

How many of these (ZL1) are they making the first year?

No idea, but I really enjoyed the video of the ZL1 at Nurburgring!

Nobody outside GM really knows.

Hit the search button and you will find numerous threads on the subject since they restarted production

I'll bet this thread would be answered faster in the ZL1 forum.

Don't know where I heard it, but I think the first year is going to be "held" to @2500 units...

Well with the late production and the hold back, I heard that 2012 will be a small production year

Who knows, I sure still would love to have one

My understanding was there was about 1800 allocations given for 2012 and some of those are being pushed to 2013's. But, in the end noone but GM knows at this point. Largest VIN I've seen reported so far was 520.

I believe 2012 allocations are done. So if you want one, it will be a 2013 and they'll make as many as people want to order. It is not a limited production car if that is what you are hoping for. It isn't a COPO car like the original.

it will be less than 2000 but I don't think anybody knows for sure.

there were ~500 pulled in the first concensus I think. then there was another period those are being built now. then they say there going to pick up another 500 next week.

my guess is between 1200-1500 cars will be built in 2012. then it said they would push 600 orders to 2013.

I agree with hognutz on the 1200-1500 because I heard, as someone else mentioned, that they were building 1800 for the year. Minus the 600 being pushed to next year would be 1200.

But another theory is that there have been 2 consensus periods with a third to follow. It seems as though they pull between 500-600 each consensus. This would put us at 1500-1800.

So my final guesstimate is between 1200-1800. Yeah, it's like that...

As I recall reading here sometime ago it was mentioned Oshawa is a flex line between several models, four as I recall. One build week a month was scheduled for the ZL1, and don't forget the ZL1 convertible will be made in 2013 as well. If someone has solid information to update us about the builds please do so. Otherwise, roll the dice, ...stayed tuned, same ZL1 time, same ZL1 channel...

I was wondering the same thing and did a quick online search and found this link that provides some good information from a reputable source.

There were 480 built initially before production stopped. I read somewhere that there were another 1100 orders out of which 600 were pulled to become 13MY. Therefore I would guess 480+500=980 for 2012MY.

I read somewhere that dealers will be confirmed remaining 2012 allocations on April 11 but did not see anything yet.

I figure 600 MY carryovers, 1000 rag tops, and maybe 1000 additional coupes........for a total MY of about 2500?.......

How Many 2012 ZL1s?

This is the best estimate I have seen. There were ~480 built through second consensus. I read (GM publication) they were going to build ~500 more, moving others to 2013. The current build constraints for May show 0% ZL1 (none to be built in May). Two weeks left in April. MY13 starts 7 June 2012, so it all adds up. ~980 2012 ZL1s.
