The latest installment to the Chevy Camaro ZL1 production saga sheds light on a situation that will change the future of 600 out of 1,100 2012 model year ZL1 orders that have yet to be filled. For those affected customers, GM will be informing you on April 11.
Due to the production delay that happened last month, the window for 2012 Camaro ZL1 models has shrunk significantly enough to the point where not all 2012 orders will be filled, and only 500 of the 1,100 2012 ZL1s will be produced in time before the 2013 production process kicks off at the end of April. This isn’t entirely a bad thing, as a few intuitive features are added on to the 2013 Camaros compared to the 2012 models, the most significant of which being Chevy MyLink and satellite navigation.
And for those that will still manage to fall in the 2012 bracket, you may not get MyLink, but it sounds like you’ll own the future collectible.
Also of note, customers who ordered 2012 models with the optional $600 exposed carbon fiber weave hood inserts (RPO code B92), the charge for the upgrade will be offset by a $600 credit, and new window stickers issued to reflect such. What’s more, models ordered with the ZL1 stripe package and sunroof (RPO codes DSW and DSX) will also get a slight tweak: the stripes will only be on the rear deck, not the roof.
