Chevy Camaro ZL1 Production Still Halted image

Production of the 2012 Chevy Camaro ZL1 is not back on tracks after it was halted a few weeks back for routine quality assessment.

“We may have found a potential issue that we want to resolve,” said GM spokesman Monte Doran.

He assured reporters that a resolution is forthcoming and that delivers will begin in a few weeks time, not mentioning the cause for the production halt, which still has Chevy dealers unable to accept customer orders for 2012 Camaro ZL1 models. All the previously built Camaro ZL1s are back at the factory in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada for the software or mechanical update.

The ZL1 was scheduled to be launched this spring, but with this delay the model is looking at an unusually short model year. Doran says GM hopes and expects that when production does resume that it will do so with 2012 models, but he admits that depending on timing, it’s possible that Oshawa could transition directly to 2013 model year builds. The vehicles already built will be delivered as 2012 models and dealers have been told not to accept any further orders of this model.
