If construction had not been interrupted, GZ would not have been operational until 1943, or perhaps the very end of 1942.
A sortie into the open Atlantic in Nov 1941 could have been disastrous for German turbine warships, which explains why no such sortie was even planned. The British gobble up the replenishment fleet, and the warships find themselves in mid-ocean hoping they have enough fumes left to steam home.
