Not a hoax. Any Canadian can walk into their local Canadian dealership and itís all there for any employee to pull up on GM workbench ...

I always have to wonder what provokes someone to start a thread like this.

Do you have an expected build or delivery date?

So...on the surface my brain says, looks legit. As I continue the analysis, I think this is a lot of effort for some one to fake it. So it passed the initial sniff test. Then I got to the colors...they smell a bit. "Zeus Bronze", "Elkhard Lake Blue Metallic", "Accelerate Yellow Metallic", "Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat", and just plain old "Black". None of it makes sense. It doesn't fit with GM color names, or most manufacturer's color names. Color names are supposed to evoke a feeling. "Ceramic Matrix Gray" doesn't evoke a feeling except me trying to figure out what that would be. Also, GT2 references in the seats. Maybe I missed something in recent years but GT2 is normally a conotation that comes with Porsche, not Vette. If it said ZO6 seats that would make more sense.

its all legit. Again I challenge any Canadians on here to walk into their dealership and sit down with their sales manager today! Itís all there for everyone to see! Here is a pic of the screen I took for the colours you can plainly see itís a computer monitor I wonít waste any more energy on this thread. I got intel here and figured most people would be appreciative not asses!

Why does it say the front wheels are only 10 inches?

Also...this:

"245/35ZR10 SL"

Maybe a typo sure....if not, it is implying that the car has 10" front rims.

Long live low riders!
