You cannot claim that your market segment competitor is a 350Z and then price it in line with a G37 and expect to sell vehicles. So as long as you are comfortable with the pricing of a chally or a stang you should have nothing to worry about in terms of pricing on the Camaro.

Remember, Chevy needs this car to be a success as much as they want it to be a success. They are not going to sabotage their potential market share by pricing themselves out of the market.
Have you guys priced a 350Z lately. I was at the dealer for service the other day and they had 2 350's one was $28K for steering wheels and tires, but no doors, the other was $36K!!! with everything (less Brembos). Ouch! I'm hoping GM prices it with the Mustang and Challenger.
