if these won't hold 426hp stock, 600hp is outta the question.
Ooo... Good point. Well - we still have to find out IF there's a real problem.

I'm going to move this into the existing thread.

But here's the answer to your question.

None of the cars will stop being built. All V8 and V6 with M6 or A6 trannys will continue to be built at the same rate they are now. After production all V8 M6 cars will go to QC hold to be inspected. If a car is found to have a defective transmission it will be repaired and shipped as soon as possible. So none of the other trims should be affected.

GM's design has nothing to do with failing to adequately tighten 4 nuts on the spoiler. That is a half ass work ethic and nothing else.
Would you call Ferrari to have poor worksmanship? B/c they have problems like these but worse. The worst paint job I've ever seen came from a Ferrari 360.

Point im making is stop being so critical of GM.

They knew the risks going in. We all did buying a 1st year car but the mod community took the risk a big step further.

That really does suck, but wouldn't you rather have a car that's right, rather than a car that's not? I can understand the wait sucks, and believe when I say that just because I didn't (couldn't) order the first day, I am as eager as any one here; possibly more. This is the first time in 12 years I haven't had a Camaro in my driveway. Just try to keep in mind GM (and Camaro Team) want to get you, and us, a car that will exceed our expectations. That's a tall order too

Anyone else just given up on getting updates, stopped caring, and will just wait to be excited when the dealer calls to tell you it showed up?

*Flame suit ON*

You know, it's a shame to be seeing so many posts deleted, members warned, etc., as well as countless time and energy by some of my fellow Mods. "policing" (which is our job, I'm not complaining) some people who cannot seem to participate in a thread without using foul language, bickering, etc.

I UNDERSTAND people being frustrated!

BUT! If you think this is a problem only germain to GM/Chevrolet
If you think GM/Chevrolet intentionally/irresponsibly caused this
If you think GM/Chevrolet is not doing whats in everyones best interest
If you think people showing support for GM/Chevrolet is "blind faith"
.........

YOU. ARE. WRONG!

If anyone cannot find that they can post a response to this thread/issue without using foul language, bickering, bashing, etc., I ask you to refrain from posting.

Ok fine, but why can't we (I) speak my mind on the situation. I thought thats what a forum was???
My opinion is not a clone of everyone elses, it differs, and it is my right to say, post and complain as long as I am respectable.

If you agree or not, that's your problem and you are then free to respond.
