Expect pricing of the Z28 to exceed current SS models by at least $8,000, but not to grow anywhere near Corvette money. GM would like to keep the Camaro Z28 as its original pony car for the average-income car lover. If the General keeps his word and GM builds this thing, we believe it will become a workhorse and a collectors item for Camaro lovers everywhere
Funny, it says GM wants to keep the Z as its original pony car for the average-income car lover yet, they say the Z will cost at least $8000 more than the SS.

Funny, a $45,000 car doesn't seem like an average-income price.

No it was never confirmed. The article doesn't even have any sources. It's a random person blogging. The picture shown is a photoshop done by Jinx....

No sources and the badge on the fender is a Z06 badge. Fail.

There is no innate copyright on that picture unless he established one expressly. The Internet is largely fair-game.

I should know.........

jinx actually created a Z/28 badge based on the Z06 badge's design, i found a bigger pic of his design where you can see it better. pretty cool stuff

Jinx has seemed to pretty much get all the little details correct; at least that I've noticed in the past. I heart that rendering

I think it's hilarious that someone could even hint at that pricing representing the car they described. Regardless - just more fuel

Didn't know you had to profit from it. Just assumed Copyright laws would cover using someone's intellectual property without his/her permission.
