I voted even though I'm not a buyer. I completely expect it to be every bit of what I voted. If not more after any available options are selected.

At this time this is all, only what we think and nice to talk about, till GM sets the price in stone, we dont know, IMO there will be less then 1000 units built, and it will come close to 100K for the car, but then i dont work for GM so i can trow out any number and it sounds good.


Lets see where we are at.

At this point in time, any price. I'm still in school and my Chevelle isn't running yet so my funds are severely limited.

im hearing rumors (GM Execs) saying there going to be around the 70K mark, and to be honest if you just base the car of a performance stand point that's a great deal if it can go around a track 3-4 seconds faster than a ZL1 that puts it against the Ferrari 458 and other cars that cost 3-4x more.

If we play the rumors game we heard the # was north of $85K and on the way to 100K so any one can play that,

....Same rule applies...If that's how you look at it, the Z/28 is not the car for you....I just think all this "price-point" business, as in figuring out where the Z/28 "needs to fit in" as if it were for some long-haul model run, is pretty much non-applicable in this case...
I totally get what your saying, I cant seem to figure out how to word what I was trying to say lol. I was trying to say something along the lines for the people with enough $ to buy this as a toy, like a 3rd or 4th car.. People that might buy it just to buy it, may pass on it for something else at a certain price point, but like you said this isnt the car for them

Multiple members of GM have already said that this will most likely cost more than a ZL1. Even some of the Corvette community has accepted the fact that this thing will be faster than the C7. And more expensive.

I completely understand that some of you want to have a hope and a prayer on snatching this up cheap, but I have a feeling that reality will sink in soon. When I look at this new Z/28, I want to see a Z06 like performance (obviously plus some weight, but I think you know what I mean) . GM finally stepped up the camaros game. And I for one, cannot wait. I already know that I can't afford this thing. But as an enthusiast of the camaro. I hope this car kicks ass. It's not about me. It's about the car. I want this car to succeed more than anything on this planet. No compromises!

If I'm wrong, so be it. And everybody can have one, yay.

If you want a car that blows other cars off a road course on Saturday and Sunday – and yet will get you to the office in comfort on Monday morning – the ZL1 is the car for you. If you want blistering track performance at a reasonable cost – the 1LE is prescribed. And – if you want to shame exotics on a road course – with an automobile that’s not meant for daily driving, then the Z/28 makes no apologies and may grab you by the collar – shake you silly -- and shout “LET’S GO MAKE HISTORY!”
I don't know about any of you, but that sounds like a Z06 like vehicle to me. Which tells me it's going to be expensive.

Pricing aside, I think in time the Z/28, built as it will be, will be the absolute pride of the entire Camaro community and all Camaro owners....

Right now, we're all just imagining what it would be like to own one...But really?...lol..
Once the dust settles, and these cars are out, common sense will prevail and most will realize that these cars aren't what they thought they would be, and will be content that it wasn't a good, or practical idea to actually own one anyhow.

The vast majority want and take for granted cars with creature comforts, mpgs, no maintenance, and low-sticker price....Probably will be a giant up-roar at the price on the Z/28 when it is known, that will be a fun, easy target for most who can then say they don't want one, when really they wouldn't be happy with the car at any price.

This car is a totally unique set-up and for a niche buyer...All good...It's still a Gen5 Camaro....just "purpose-built"....Enjoy it, whether you're a buyer or not!...

I've read all the post and yes I understand the history of the Z/28 and yes I even get how track capable this car should be. But if this car comes in at anything over $65 GM has completely struck out!!
