Default [ASKED] C6 ZR1/Z07 Rear Brake Rotor Discontinued?

It seems that C6 ZR1/Z07 carbon ceramic rear brake rotor, GM OEM part # 22805790 and AC Delco part # 177-1121, is showing out of stock or discontinued throughout the country. Has this part truly been discontinued and if so what options do the owners of these cars that may only be 5 years old have for a compatible rotor? Are the C7 carbon ceramic rotors usable (fit) on the C6 carbon ceramic brake system? I believe the front rotor will, but the rear may be a different size.

Next part of this question has to do with the new C7 ZR1 brake pads. Are they compatible with the C6 carbon ceramic brake rotors?

I have this pinned up since it won the poll. But as I stated in the poll, I won't be sending this to Tadge until 10 June as we're going to skip a cycle. I'll reply to this thread again when I've sent it to him.

After I asked the question and it was voted as the Tadge question, someone posted in the C6 ZR1/Z06 section that there was a manufacturing defect and all the rear rotors in stock had been recalled. He expected that they will be replaced and back in stock at some point. It will be interesting if Tadge confirms this.
