Your Service Manager needs to act like a MANAGER and stop spreading gossip & speculation... and just focus on honest customer service on the current vehicles on hand.

He probably isn't lying to you but his info may be wrong. 69k is a lot. But I wouldn't be too surprised. If limited edition, GM may be thinking fanboys will selll out the car with pre orders just to own a Z28. If so, they're overestimating.

I'm sure fanboys would preorder a Camaro that had a Z28 badge on it. Which is why they aren't building any Z28s - only Z/28s

Which one is it? You posted $69,000 in this thread and $69,900 in another thread.

GM already said the Z will be the most expensive Camaro ever made.

So with that, I'm out of the pool.

Going to look for something else or buy a new 5th Gen and the mod the heck out of it.

Exactly! Suspension, HP, plus you can strip a few things off of it to bring it close to the same weight. You'd have HP and suspension over it for less money. To buy a car with CC brakes and an LS7 just to say you have one for 70k+ is ill minded IMO. Track beast it is. Very impressed with it. The price they'll prolly ask? Not impressed whatsoever. Much cheaper outlets that'll beat it.

I think the price will be as high as said in the OP i hope not but the brakes are over 10K by them self add the the newer rear end gears, 305 on all corners and that LS7 we all want and the new seats, and its a 40K in new parts if not more. so add that to a stock SS and lets see if its not at 75K+ car.

Crazy, especially due to the fact that its 160 hp down from the gt500 (even though its n/a). Chevy has to be careful with this one. You can only spread hype so far....

One reason I would do it is because I don't want a FI engine, I want a big cubic inch engine NA and make good power with it. Plus having the Z/28 would be awesome to me, so I'd be happy buying one for sure

Because, at the track, the Z/28 > ZL1 > GT500. ;-)

They will sell more than 10 or 20. Seriously more than that. Might only be 1,000 or so but 10 to 20 is a bit of an exageration don't you think?

It would be that 3 seconds per lap in a NA car that can run at the track allllllll day long without heat soak issues.

Heyyyyy, he can have an opinion just like everyone else. He just apparently thinks because he is a SERVICE manager that his opinion counts more.

So the fact that the 1LE and the ZL1 have already beaten both the Boss and the GT500 in track testing and the Z/28 will only be faster doesn't mean anything?

You haven't read much on the Z/28 have you?

- power seats
- A/C is an option, your heat comes from the engine so you'll always have that.
- radio, you have it. Just only one speaker.

Show me the test with the 1LE and the Boss compared at the same time. Its great that the camaro handles, but its a little bit of a hard sell on the street; and dollars for hp. the Ford also has an advantage.

Try an MSRP in the range of $79K to $89K...

PLUS due to low build volume, try and get one away from a dealer for less than $100K...

If you want to accelerate and drive in a straight line - buy a mustang.

If you want to accelerate through the twisties - buy a Camaro.

Pretty sure every magazine that's compared the Boss, ZL1, 1LE, etc. has come to the above conclusion.

If I can find a dealer who will sell one to me at MSRP, will you pay for it?

Oh Becky.....I'd like to place my Z/28 order if that's alright.

As someone who has had a ZO6 and a ZR1, don't dismiss a Camaro with an LS7 in it. I was faster at Spring Mountain in a ZO6 than a ZR1. Not having that supercharger weight up front makes a big difference. I am seriously considering a Z28.
