The more street friendly Z/28 exists

It's called the 1LE. It's got A/C, a stereo, power seats, and the other goodies that people want.


I drive a 98 Z28. It's definitely more street focused than the 2014 Z/28 but it also isn't a Z/28.

No, the LS3 is enough in the 1LE.

I think very very few are rejecting it. And those that are either can't afford it or they are ZL1 owners concerned the Z/28 will outshine their Camaro.

I don't know if it would cost $70k but that kind of performance costs money.

People are just pissed because they can't have the fully loaded 427 Camaro they have wanted since the Camaro has returned, and have it fully warrantied. I applaud GM for building the Z28 for the ones that will enjoy it! Personally, all I would want would be 3 more speakers, and then I would mod the 427 a lil more to my liking.

Yes it's going to be expensive but I can't imagine MSRP being $70K. I guess it's fun to speculate but that seems pretty high having heard at the NY Auto show what the Z/28 is comprised of. Probably will be approaching that though with taxes and could be higher if you buy from the wrong dealer. We will see.

GM has already public stated the z28 is above the zl1 in price point. That puts it in the 60-70k range, that is even without dealer markup which this model will surely have.

My car with it's little cam likely will have more power than the stock Z28, my car has about 520 hp @ the crank. I was expecting a car with an LS7 that was priced a between a 1LE and ZL1, it seems others were as well. No worries, GM didn't consult me for my input...

I see it being $58,995-59,595 or something like that for the base.

Base? Seems like the only options would be color and air conditioning... not really many options to make it much more than "base" anyway. I don't think they're going to offer a "luxury Z/28" to have anything more than a "base".

As a ZL1 owner, the last thing I am worried about is the Z/28 outshining the ZL1. I am thrilled that GM made the Z/28. I think that is a little presumptuous of you. I have not run into any ZL1 owners that have anything negative to say about the Z/28. While they may be surprised at the approach and have opinions on what they would have like to have seen, I think the #1 issue most people have is that is going to cost MORE than the ZL1 which is tough to justify unless you are a totally committed track person.

The only people upset about the Z/28 are those that will not be able to afford it. While it may be a bummer for some, you can't argue how great this car is going to be. A 1LE with an LS7 ain't gonna cut it.

I wish i concured. would have saved me lots of money. the ls3 does well in the vette but in the camaro it just feels so average.

even the lsa left me wanting for more until I modded it.

If GM decides to offer a decent BLUE akin to the Hotwheels color, I will be ordering a 2014 1LE with them thar fancy seats. I will be adding a cam, LT headers, intake, exhaust and of course a new tune. 500hp range, no problem. Crossing fingers.

That would be the ultimate 1LE. I would do backflips if they made Kinetic Blue available but I'm not optimistic. Is the lack of a nice blue the only thing holding you back from a 2014 1LE?

And they are the target buyer for the new Z/28.
