While it’s hard to imagine, General Motors is forecasting that the upcoming 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 will yield a strong demand for automatic transmissions. Yes, the car is expected to be a 580 horsepower Mustang-eating track monster, but according to Camaro marketing manager John Fitzpatrick, a lot of people will not want to have to deal with the clutch pedal.
“There are a lot of people out there who, as they age, do not want a third pedal,” Fitzpatrick told Ward’s Auto. The trend is true with the currently available Camaro SS, with 70 percent of buyers opting out of a third pedal. Though if it were one of our to own, there’s not a chance we would pass on the ability to independently row through the gears of such a machine.
