The car in the preview shifted like it was an auto' but maybe it was dubbed over.

Anyways - I think GM should've gotten an auto' in there. I'm sure there's a good reason though. PERHAPS - they can manage to eek by the GG tax with the stick, and not the auto'... I'm just throwing that out there.

Again Chevy gives the Stick to Automatic drivers. I guess the don't really want our business even though the majority of Camaros sold are auto

Perhaps they mentioned the manual transmission to reassure the people who figured it would be auto-only after seeing that pic saying the prototype had an automatic

Dont jump the gun and freak out people. Over 80% of the Camaros sold are with the automatic transmission. Common sense tells you they will be available for the ZL-1, just as they are for all the CTS-V models.

And as previous posters pointed out, we have photographic proof of a test mule fitted with an automatic. So what more proof do you need??

Dont get your panties in a twist !

But if you insist....... focus on the steering wheel! There is still time for them change it back!!!!!

they will definitely have an auto. It still has a year left for chevy to tweak it and throw stuff out and throw stuff in. Don't you guys remember the small tweaks they did with the 2010 camaros before they OFFICIALLY released it to the public. We still have hope you guys. Plus, don't flame me, but why didn't ford offer an auto on the gt500? Arent most mustangs sold autos as well??

GM would be screwing themselves out of money if they didn't do an auto.

The GT500 doesn't offer an auto, so it would allow GM the chance to attract customers that want a hi-po car but don't want a stick.

I find it interesting that so many people are mad about this. Is there an automatic transmission in the GT500? Of course not. Does Ford lose sales of Mustangs because there isn't an automatic? Of course not.

GM might have been able to lure away some potential buyers based on some of the comments so far, but, honestly, if you're buying a car like the ZL1, Z06, ZR1 or GT500, perhaps it's time to learn to drive a stick. Or buy a lower model and modify it to perform to your specifications. Either way, quit whining and enjoy the fact that we are going to get a high performance model to compete directly with the GT500.
