Any accurate time frames for the Z/28 availability?

I'm just wondering if any of the "in the know" crowd have rough a time frame of when the Z/28 will start hitting the streets. I've read from 1 to 2 years. That's a pretty big difference. Is anyone able to narrow it down at all?

In all seriousness, they want to get it out the door, but like the base cars, they aren't going to sacrifice quality or development work to do so. 1-2 years is a very good gauge...guess somewhere in the middle for now, and as time goes on; hone it in.

You wussy.......




Really that is the smart thing to say at this point.Hell if we did say the expected date people would think that it's our fault and kill the messenger.

Have a wonderful day!

The rumors are september-ish/late 2011. Which is about 6 months after the convertible is supposed to be released. No official info has been released though.

So If there is going to be an official word... When might we hear this official word. If there is even a official word to be heard of course.
