Why is it there seems to be no AW spotted yet? I'm dying to see one.

I am confused by this as well. We have seen every color (if you count the Lime Rock Green hood from the bash) except AW.

this will give you an idea. I think white is, by far, the best looking color on the C7.

Yep, some nice dark tinted windows all around too should go well with the rest of the black trim

I'm still waiting to see the actual picture of one. But this holds me off until then. I will own this car in the next 2-3 years!!

I hope this isn't the case, as its been many years... When GM launched the 4th Gen F-body in 92, Arctic White was on constraint because the different material used for the bumpers wasn't matching up quite right when painted, causing them to be just a shade off.
Sad I've been in the car business that long I remember these things..

Sometimes things happen, just wanted to add my .02 to all of the other C7 conspiracy theories.

This diffuser/valence looks, IMO, nearly perfect for the Z cars. The exhausts would help to set this car apart and they look really nice.
