Upwards of $75k for the Z-28???
 
At first, I was thinking the Z-28 may be in the $50k price range, but then GM said it would be above the ZL1 in the "Camaro Tier". Some are speculating a $70-75k price tag on this thing. I just think that's too much for a Camaro. Don't get me wrong, this thing looks BAD :thumbup:, but it's a stripped down track car. No AC, one speaker and other amentities are minimal at best. I mean, the original Z-28's in the 60's were basically the same thing, but when you could buy a new car off the showroom floor for $3,000, GM didn't price the Z-28 at $12,000. I hope GM doesn't price this beast out of the stratosphere. For that price, I'd buy a ZL1 and save some cash.:chevy:

Yeah, my hopes were pretty much slain the moment I read that it would be in that range. There's no way possible I could swing that, not in time to even get a 2015. So, I suppose it is off to plan B, which is a 1LE, which is looking ever more the bargain now.

It'll be high. I thought no way it's more than a ZL-1 since its stripped. But since only a handful of ppl will buy them the price will be gouged along with your eyeballs. If they made it 45k, a LOT would be sold. But gov motors doesn't want a ton of these on the road. Some will become garage queens, some racers and a very small percent will be daily drivers. Kind of like those that ride a chopper motorcycle. It's not made for everyone.

I'm trying to feel way around the Camaro landscape and I can't come up with a anything as to why the Z28 will be so much more expensive..... considering over the last few years GM has tried to provide the best for less which is what they've done.

ZL-1 is a beast of a car and with a mid to high 50 price is very good in my opinion, and the 1LE is the same for it's price.... so why does the Z need to be so high? It's not like it's all new from the ground up. The only thing I can figure is there is alot more to this car that hasn't been told yet... obviously we can see whats there, but there has to be more for it carry a 70k sticker.

I'm coming to the conclusion that this car is going to be like the Cobra-R in 2000 from Ford. Limited production, expensive, not your everyday driver, track car. :facepalm: What do you think?

StephenS_84 03-28-2013 07:06 AM

Where is your proof? Or is this just your opinion on what the price tag will be?

That is exactly what I think.

GM already said it WILL be the top-tier Camaro (above the $60k ZL1).

If the carbon brakes are standard, then I think it will start at about $65-70k, maybe more. They are targeting a very limited market with this car, even smaller than the ZL1. I think of it more like a halo car for the Camaro brand. The ZL1 is definitely going to be the better street car IMO.

this car is meant to compete with the BOSS 302 right? I really hope its not over zl1 price.....but it sounds like gm is planning on it by saying its top dog and better than the zl1. the ole, less is more thing.

It was speculation that it would be made to compete with the BOSS (as well it should have been). With the LS7, ceramic brakes and other goodies, I simply think GM put this into an exclusive, expensive, very limited, class of its own. :confused:

When they were introducing it at the unveil and saying how it was much lighter, and 3 seconds quicker than the ZL1... Well that wasn't because they were planning to sell it for less than the ZL1. Just saying. 75k isn't even gonna be enough to buy the first ones to hit showrooms.

Mikes SS 03-28-2013 07:38 AM

Well all those nutjobs got what they wanted!! I am really disappointed, because I am one of those, I kept saying that if they put the LS7 in the Camaro it would cost ZL1 money and everyone scoffed!! If they really wanted it to be true to heritage, they would have built a motor for it, and engine no bigger than a 5.7L..again you guys will say hey that costs money to do that, but what are you paying for now? How much money do you think went into the development of this car to begin with!!?? I am sad that I waited so long and had hope, but I will never be able to sit in one let alone purchase one. I will have better luck finding a '68 Z/28 and restoring that, or hell even buying a body in white and starting from scratch...well wait a minute I can't do that because it would be illegal to drive on the street, even to go to a car show! The thing is, all those Damn over stock LS7's are sitting in a warhouse and they had to go into something and GM knew that, if my opinion were worth a crap, and they really wanted to use the LS7 all along, they should have started with the 1SS/1LE and added the LS7. They went all out to put this thing out of the hands of many buyers and that sucks. Am I whining? Of course, but I don't need carbon ceramic brakes and improved ground effects to 210MPH and shell out 60K just to have some fun around a track 2-3 times a year. Very sad day, sorry had to get it out.

If this car is priced at $75k, then GM will disapoint many camaro followers. people have been anticipating the return of the Z/28 badge since the camaro was reintroduced. Personally, I was thinking that GM would use the Z/28 to fill the $18k gap between the 1LE and ZL1. If that happens, they will sell a lot of cars.
