As the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 ramps up for production, there has been speculation that the low-slung pony car will get an optional automatic transmission. Well, now according to Autoblog we’ve learned that not only will the new Camaro ZL1 get an automatic, but it will also be receiving the same Performance Traction Management system that’s found in the Corvette ZR1. That means traction control, selective ride control and launch control. Add to that the fact that the Camaro’s chief engineer, Al Oppenheiser stated that the ZL1’s Cadillac CTS-V derived 6.2-liter supercharged V8 will also pump out more than the originally estimated 550 hp, and you’ve now got a pony car that is likely to make mince-meat out of all of its competitors. Expect the ZL1 Camaro to show its face in the first quarter of next year.
