I think more like $75-85K. It'll be a LOT more than a ZL1. I dont think Chevy would sell more than 500 (five hundred) in 2014.

It looks to me like the Z/28 is slotted above the ZL1 as far as content. Remember that removing items can actually cost more. LS7, Carbon Ceramic Brake, Recaro Seats, wide lightweight wheels and tires and some other model specific trim parts make this whole package likely more expensive than the ZL1.

I'll say MSRP $61,995 before options, A/C or gas guzzler tax.

Im going to guess right around 50K, because its not a ZL1. The ZL1 is more powerful, and has more technology (and options) in it. The new z/28 they just revealed will be "stripped down" (in comparison) They said it would only have one speaker, air conditioning would be an OPTION, etc. Its going to be a fantastic car, but it wont be as expensive, or more expensive than a ZL1

Your dealers are PHOOKING idiots! People have been getting them for under sticker since last year. $49-50k for the Z-28.

Take the ZL1, add 5k+ for the motor, another 5k+ for the brakes, another 3k+ for the seats...

I'll be AMAZED if it comes in less than 10 grand over the ZL1 MSRP

I'm not gonna argue why a less powerful motor would cost more, why it can be expensive to leave things out of a car, etc..... the COPO doesn't even have carpet, heater or a single speaker!

I’m going to assume the lack of options (even less so than the ZL1) will cheapen the build a bit. Sounds like you can maybe choose your exterior color and A/C, that’s about it. And the Recaros will be available on the other models (ZL1, SS).

This is one of those cars that I could see being sold at $50,000 or $65,000 depending on how GM wants to spin it, but I’m guessing it will be closer to 50k.

Engine is a 10k premium brakes another 8 to 10. Seats in CTS V have run over 2. That's 22k over an SS. Now add tires and wheels. Both nearly custom. And the other low volume parts. If under 65 awesome for us.

My guess will be $62,995. Its going to cost more than a ZL1 with the LS7 and the carbon breaks.

It's still a damn Camaro! They haven't labeled it as a direct "Boss Beater", but they said it's a track car, as is the Boss. We all bitched when the magazines were putting the $45k Boss against the $38k 1LE (even though the 1le still won out in most cases). If the Boss is its target competition, you're now putting a $65k Z-28 against a $45k Boss? I hope it's not that damn expensive! Like they say, "Whoever has the most money is always the fastest.".

Directly from GM

Quote:
The 2014 Camaro Z/28 is designed to be the most track-capable Camaro production model produced by Chevrolet. The Z/28 will be powered by the naturally aspirated LS7 small-block V8 engine and Tremec TR6060 six speed manual transmission. In initial testing, the Z/28 is three seconds faster than the ZL1. The increase speed comes not only from the engine but also from:
Increased grip: The Z/28 is capable of 1.05 g in cornering acceleration, due to comprehensive chassis revisions
Increased stopping power: the Z/28 features Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes capable of 1.5 g in deceleration
Reduced curb weight: The naturally aspirated Z/28 weighs 300 pounds less than the supercharged Camaro ZL1, with changes ranging from lightweight wheels to thinner rear-window glass


The goal of this fifth generation Camaro Z/28 is to return to its road-racing roots. Like the first generation Camaro Z/28, the 2014 Camaro Z28 will not be offered with an automatic transmission, and air conditioning will be an option.


The Camaro Z/28 will be equipped with Recaro™ Performance Seats. Recaro™ Performance seats will also be an available option at the start of the 2014 production run for the Camaro SS and ZL1 coupe models.


The Camaro Z/28 features the very best, race-proven technology on the market, including carbon brakes, spool-valve dampers, and the hand-built LS7 V8 engine. As such, the Z/28 will be positioned above the ZL1. Specific information on the Camaro Z/28 price and allocation process will be shared with you later this year.

I don't think Ford is making a direct competitor with this car... unless it's the Laguna Seca car. Did Ford ever build that for the public? But yeah, even the Laguna Seca car isn't even close.

Exactly what magazines have tested the 1LE and Boss back to back in the same article?

Anyways, I would guess 65k and this thing is going to decimate any other pony/muscle car on the track. It is actually nice to see all the R&D going into an all performance machine with few, if any, compromises.

Yes, the Leguna Seca was made in limited numbers. It was only around $50k. If this thing is $65k-$75k, I think that's too damn much. I understand it has a lot of high-end components, but you're getting into Z06 territory with that kind of cash!

Reading comprehension? I said Boss vs. 1LE...not ZL1.

The Boss is old news, not competitive with the ZL1 or Z/28 and maybe not even the 1LE. It is also no longer produced.

The competition for the Z/28 hasn’t been announced yet. I suspect GM is leading the way in anticipation of a better performing, track oriented Mustang. Or maybe the Z/28 is so unique it will go unanswered through the release of the 6th gen Camaro in 2015 (MY 2016).
