I was upset for the simple fact it has a lot of exotics and that will make the price relatively high, but I understand why. If its priced accordingly, ill be selling my beauty for one as I rarely drive it and the Zwould be a rare driven car but when I do drive, I make it worth it. I love the LS7 and I do wish they'd have installed it as an upgraded option for the SS as I'd have one. Ill see what happens...
Yep. I think it's awesome how they built it, but I was simply commenting on why I think some people are pissed lol

I think the reason they wanted to make it less appealing to most buyers was because there will be a limited number of LS7 engines available. They want to keep selling this version of the Z28 until the release of the 6th gen so the low content of options combined with a stiff price tag will keep all but the hard core fan away.

I don't think so. Who markets a product to make it less desirable?

...make it less appealing with the intent to do so in mind? Theres no credence in that. Make it purpose built and more appealing for a very specific consumer market in mind? Yes. Only two groups will pursue this one off beast......hard core collectors, and hard core racers. This is where the rubber hits the road, and the defining line that seperates the boys from the men <excerpt line from fbodfather>. This is no

Methinks you have to look a little past the two words "less appealing" and read all of "less appealing to most buyers". There's a significant difference.

The Z/28 is a car for a clearly defined, hardcore niche. I'm guessing that in many cases, part of the reason for buying it will be because it does not try to be anything else. You either like it for what it isn't as well as for what it is, or you need to be looking at something else.

Dunno, maybe it's easier to see this when you don't even think like the average mainstream car buyer. Most buyers would not find cars that are specifically equipped to appeal to me very appealing for themselves. I'm not making any distinctions among daily-drivers, weekend/trip cars, and toys here.

Yes I understand all that...it was purpose built with great focus. If it being purpose built makes it less inclusive it's not to persuade socalled buyers to NOT purchase. It's to appeal to buyers understanding its intent. My original comments were based on the following remark, "the reason they wanted to make it less appealing to most buyers". Manufacturers do not design and build anything to make it less appealing...to anyone...

I think everyone is partially right in this thread and if you add it all together it makes the most sense...they "purpose built" the car for 1-because they can and showed what they can do due to the health of their current economic state. 2-they have LS7 engines already built that they lose money on by sitting on shelves. 3-making it "less desireable" to Joe Carbuyer by pricing above a DD status weeds out the men from the boys well and the car collectors 4-overpricing it still allows them to sell the remaining LS7's but keep the CAFE numbers at bay. 5-Heritage-they built the car to reinvigorate a passion but create its own legacy for future gens. In part, if the above did not hold water, they would have allowed for the SS to have an LS7 option. The Z/28 will be very profitable for GM regardless how many they sell and that is a good thing.
