True. I'm stuck a few years back thinking Vette's are running base 50K. A 427 Camaro at 43K loaded is still less expensive. You're right. I couldn't go that high, though. That would break the bank for sure.

Guess my first figures were actually right.

Base Vette '06 $44,490
Base Vette '07 $44,995

Chevy, if they do it, will have to price an LS7 powered Camaro below that. It would have to be in the upper 30's so as to not screw w/ the Corvette sales.

you meen that the ls2 camaro not the ls7. the base vette hasthe ls2 im sure the ls7 camaro would be a little more than that just for the fact its the 427 but that price for the ls7 is not to exceed the z06 and probably wont be close to it but it will be more than a base model vette

The only way an LS7 powered Camaro would surpass that base vette price, is if a GM dealer built that LS7 Camaro and gave it special badging...ie., Berger, Dick Harrel, Yenko, etc. That's just my opinion. I don't think GM would do that....meaning I don't think they would price it over a base vette.

I think we need to wait and see what engines are available once the 5th Gen. arrives.

I agree 100% with 'Tag' that Chevrolet will never offer a model of the Camaro which will surpass the performance of the Corvette. The exception being, dealer offered "performance editions".

It sure is going to be fun seeing what engines are offered. The decision for me then becomes tough; Do I order one right away? Wait and see what the "top model" from Chevrolet is? Or, do I see what Berger, etc. offer?

A Camaro with an LS7 could rationally be priced more than a base Vette. The Z06 is 65k but the base with the LS2 is 45k. Expect the LS7 Camaro to compete with the GT500 in price. People that want a Z06 will not be deterred by the LS7 Camaro having a lower price tag. Owning the Vette has more of a nostalgic value and you get more with the Z06 package than just the LS7.

Come on GM enthusiasts, lets not forget about the Grand National and Firebird GTA both of witch killed the Vette of that time period …

yeah the camaro with ls7 will be more than a base vette. not only would it have to have a bigger engine but everything else needs to be modified like transmission, suspension, im sure wheels and tires wuld be different, and maybe some kind of appearence. so yeah it will be more than a base model vette but less than the z06 probably somewhere around the price of a conv. vette.

if they are smart they won't make it more then 38k. b/c stupid dealers will mark that up to over 45k. I know one in johnson city tennessee will. they mark even the basic cobalt up 1500$. also they sold a brand new Z06 for over 115k, and then wanted to sale a used one for 75k. I can't stand them. they need to be shot.

What's even more crazy than that is the moron who bought the Z06 @ 115K! If anyone needs to be shot, it's him for keeping that dealer in buisness!:slice:

that dealership is owned by the richest people in the area. they own like just about every other dealership in the area. I went to high school with the guys son. and the guy just got married and they aired it on tv like it was a big deal. whoopty dooooo. but yea people in my home town are stupid. I would drive to knoxville tn to buy a car as long as I didn't have to pay that stupid mark up.

sorry to tell you but its probably going to be more than 38g's. seriously think aboutwhat you say and write before you do . this is the car thats coming back that was stopped being made in 02. which in 02 cost about 33,000 for an ss and 7 years later inflation has a factor in pricing. i predict the ls2,3,4 .... whatever they will have by then will be around 35 for it fully loaded. now putting a bigger motor in it is going to take the price up. the vette jumped up almost 15-20 for the z06.i know that to buy one of those 427 motors from the dealership cost about 15g's by itself. so sorry to burst your dream of owning the 427 camaro for less than 40 but its not gonna happen.

When looking at the price of a Z06, don't just factor in the motor. There are lots of standard options going into that car that the base vette does not have (ie. suspension, brakes, wheels, STANDARD dual zone climate control, STANDARD heads up display, functional cold air hoodscoop and air extractors behind the front wheels, wider rear quarter panels...3 inches wider, etc, etc, etc.). ALL of this adds up to the higher price tag, not just the motor. Come on, we're talking a huge price increase for tons of upgrades...including the motor.

Now, going back to the Camaro. No one knows anything on prices. We are speculating that a base Z28 will be around 25K. Can we agree on that? A base SS back in 02 came in at $3,625 more than the Z28. The SS your talking about came in at 33K fully loaded. Again, the SS Camaros I priced in 02 were around 29K, not 33K. Actual base retail on an SS was $26,455 without anything else added except the SS package. You can bet that GM will build an SS 3K to 5K more than the Z28. Inflation adds up, but not that much. So, an SS Camaro, if GM wants to sell them, should be priced (in my opinion) between 30K-35K with options. Now, with the LS7...I don't know how GM could get away with putting that motor in this car and actually get away by making a profit at that price. So, will GM really put that motor in the SS? GM must make the SS within a price range that isn't going to conflict w/ a Vette. GM would have to put in a less expensive motor and use the 427 in a "ZL1" type Camaro and price that like you all said...in the $40K range. Again, GM will price its SS's not too far off from the Z28. Maybe the base SS will have some 470hp engine with an option of getting the LS7. GM won't make an SS priced at 40K unless it's got something mammoth under that hood.

ok so if we go by your numbers and this new"ss" is 29,000. (and yes the ss were priced at 32-33, because i was looking at one brand new in the show room back in 02)and then you ad the motor cost ontop of that ,which is 12,000. so were at 41,000 so far, and thats not even counting any other performance or handling or wheel and tire options. im sorry if your gonna look for a cheapcamaro (z06) but its not gonna happen. its gonna br priced high. look at the shelby gt 500, theres nothing really special about it but it has a bigger motor and some wheels and tires and suspension and that thing is priced at 46g's , but.... they arent going for that much there going for 60g's

The Shelby GT 500 has something that Ford would call special about it, the name Shelby. Just like buying Advil instead of Equate. People pay for the Shelby name.

it doesnt matter if it has the "shelby " name. the car is still slow as hell for having 500 hp and its supercharged.that seems to be the only way ford can get power out of their cars. i would never buy a ford no matter what the car or how much it was. very unreliable and underpowered. the only good thing for has going for them is thier trucks!

I didn't say Shelby = unmatched power, I said it equaled money.
I figured my post was fairly clear about that with the Advil example.
