Z06/ZR1 Discontinued?

Anyone heard they are stopping production of the Z06, ZR1, Camaro SS and the Challenger?

Heard some ruomrs that since Obama now owns GM he is making them stop since they are not efficient enough. Can anyone verify this? I'm looking online but not really finding much. I see that he passed new laws saying the average MPG needs to raise on fleets of cars, but no specific bans on cars yet.

Thanks everyone.

My baby Z was the 12th Z06 to roll off the line on July 10, 2006. It was the 148th Z06 to roll off the production line for 2007 picked her up on 8/22!!
456 hp stock 551 hp not stock :D

did you see the article in road and track where the Prius and an M3 went around and around a track. The M3 just had to keep up. The M3 got better gas mileage! So how good is the gas mileage in the Prius, I know in Cali everyone I see is doing 90mph or faster, so I bet it's not getting it!! LOL!!!
