Anyone else cancel their order for c7?

I had a black 2013 m6 ZL1 on order until I heard about the c7. Now I'm losing my mind waiting. Anyone else do the same? I'm itching for the new car feeling and it's getting tougher by the day.

I am anxiously awaiting the C7 reveal on 1.13.13. However I won't be selling my Z to get one. The C7 Z06 should be announced next summer.

Yup, I'm waiting for the C7 Z06. Won't sell my ZL1 as it is my DD, the Z06 will be my weekend toy and my '69 will remain my garage queen

Excited to see the reveal in January, no plans to trade in the Z for the 2014 Corvette. Will be fun to watch and read on the future Corvette options coming soon.

If you pull this off you are quite possibly my hero... lol

I'm going to be happy with a 1LE although I hope the C7 brings down the price of the C6. If it does I want to try and score a C6 Grand Sport.

I don't have a ZL1 to cancel my order on. We do have a 2013 C6 427 60th anniversary edition.

However I may be tempted to trade my SS in for a C7. I like the "spy shot renderings" that have been shown so if they are anything like that, it may be hard for me to NOT make the trade.

I really need a step up in refinement or I would just build my Z. Much of my business depends on wowing clients and my Z just feels cheap and the Maserati is simply too expensive to maintain at it's age. The ZL1 was going to be my replacement fun car to save some cash for a more luxurious daily car, but if the c7 is what I expect it would be great along with an SUV or sedan. I'm pretty young and look even younger so I have to be very careful with my car choices or clients will make assumptions about my personality. I hope Chevy really steps up materials and luxury with the c7 or I will have to buy another Italian or German sports car. First world problems, but problems nonetheless.

I'm thrilled as anyone to see this new Corvette....but I blew everything I had for a fun car on the ZL1. I don't think I've ever been happier being "stuck" with something.

The way my timeframe is looking.......I might hop into a 6th-gen in the future. But it remains to be seen what they do with the Camaro...do I trade the Cobalt in for a base-model aka Cadillac ATS? That would be a plenty fun daily driver....or do I go for a Cruze...and trade the ZL1 in for the next-gen "uber-Camaro"? Choices.....

But I don't mean to thread-jack. The world-killer Corvette is due...and I need more money.

shoulda raced the cobalt at fest 1... probably woulda just built it up to be as fast as the Z & you'd still have money for a down payment on a C7!

Are there any good spy photos of the C7 mules? I haven't been able to find anything with good dates on it to tell if they're from past generations or the current one (I'm not too versed in 'vettes)

which would make sense considering that the C6 Camaro is on the Alpha platform, which is quite a bit smaller than the Zeta II

I was going to get a ZL1 but when I heard about the new Corvette coming I decided to wait and see what it will look like and how much power they will have. I think the main reason I didn't jump on a Z was because my wife would of kicked my ass after I just bought a 2013 Platinum Escalade a month ago. The C7 will be my Camaros replacement..

current figures for the LT1 are roughly 450hp/450tq out of a high-compression, direct-injected 6.2L - the new LT1

Chevy is going to unveil the C7 in January but production isn't going to begin until the 3rd quarter of 2013. Now that's going to be a long wait.

And yes, supposedly it's going to be smaller and lighter than the C6.

I'm anxiously waiting to see what the uncamo'd C7 looks like as well. If it was going to look like the Concept Stingray, my mind would be made up and I'd be ready to order one, but it won't, so I'll have to wait until Jan 13 to make my mind up depending on looks AND power to weight.

according the the vette forums...its not much smaller at all...talking inch. Some have said its a tad longer wheelbase wise. Nothing certain yet that I have found. I do know they were testing the chassis under a C6 body at one time...so its close.

For me there are just too many unknowns on the C7. I like everybody else am waiting but I think the C7. the 450hp could work if the car is lighter. I mean 3000lb curb wieght and that 450 would be nice.

The ZL1 to me is the best looking camaro since 1969. the renderings of the C7 to me are not doing that. I think the C6 Z06 looks better than the C7 stuff I have seen to date to me.

hopefully there are revisions and the finished product looks better. the c7 Z06 might be the answer. the 2005 C6 does not comare in my eyes looks wise to a 2006 Z06. took them a year to get that right.
