When do the 2012 V's start to hit the dealers?

Probably sometime late July, early August?

The earlier the better....cant wait, once you put down a deposit you want it.
Dealer told me to expect delivery sometime in Sept.

I'm going to guess anywhere between 7-14-2011 to 12-31-2011

They might be bumping up the HP like on the ZL1. So that could be the delay right there.

There is no delay. Production is scheduled to start July 18th (next Monday) for the 2012 model year.

"Early August delivery" is what I'm being told. Have a Black Diamond V-cpe on order and dealer just called yesterday to say prod start 7/18. I'm thinking 6 weeks, so more likely "late August, early September":( Anxiously awaiting.

you asked a question to which the answer from anyone here could only be an educated guess. I gave you a guess.

I have a TPW of 8/8/11 on my '12 Wagon and the dealer said to expect it in early September.

I wonder what the delivery of the '12's will do to the price of dealer inventory 11's.

I wouldn't expect to see any HP bump on the CTS-V until AT LEAST the 2013 model year. The ZL1 is set to debut in January of 2012 and it would make sense and be cheaper for GM to build just one engine for both the CTS-V and the ZL1. I think the ZL1 will put out more power due to the changes GM is making to the LSA engine like the electric power steering. Until the ZL1 is SAE certified, we just have to wait and see what the official power ratings are for the ZL1 LSA and what GM does for the 2013 CTS-V in terms of a power bump to go up against the new M5. I am sure GM has to be working on bumping up the power on the LSA for 2013 as we speak.

This may be old news to some of you, but trolling through the old posts I found a mention of http://www.gmconnects.com/home/.

You enter your Order Number and it will track it through the system for you, and can even text you when the car's status changes. Sounds pretty cool to me!

They WILL be building wagons first! And sold cars take priority. My Black Diamond wagon might be one of the first 3-pedal wagons built.

I think you are definitely on the right track here. "North of 570 HP".
Make what you will of this...

that is why I asked the question, I am looking at a number of V Coupes still on dealer lots - they have not been selling so I am looking to see what type of deal is possible once the 2012's ship
