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!!

Does it really matter? I mean honestly don't take this the wrong way, but regardless of what it's capable of when you get up in the $65-$70K range your option for performance cars is huge. And I'm not just talking straight line performance and ring times. Look I LOVE the 5th Gen and everything they have done to make an amazing performance car. But when there is talk of this car being in the $65-$70 range that's nuts. My .02

You may have other options in that price range but if the Z/28 is faster around a track, would you still say GM struck out?

What if the Z/28 runs with cars that cost twice as much?

True.... But if its dominating cars that are considerably more money wouldn't that make it worth it? Even if it's just performing at the same level as cars at it's price point then it's worth it.... IMO

I guess its all in how you look at it.

At what price? The one that has me on the floor sharing a bowl with Fido...

Seriously, IF it becomes a "one-Model-year wonder", it won't be inexpensive...

New C7 Stingray starts at $52K and is said to match the C6 Z06 in performance... I wonder how high the Z/28 will go.

..and that's the rub...and the way it shall be. Commentary has been made all along about the value and affordability that Chevy brings to the table with these products. Same has been said on this board from within the organization. The only said about is that it will be the most expensive Camaro made. Look at the ZL1 for a comparison in bang for the buck and MSRP. As much as the price keeps going up by leaps and bounds in the speculation market for the Z-28 MSRP on this site, I feel it will be more affordable than some are predicting. Chevy takes pride in making a quality product and keeping a tight margin.

I would seriously consider this car at slightly less than ZL1 money. In fact, I would buy it over a ZL1 even if it cost more. The problem is, I can't swing a $60K car. I am content with my 1LE (but that isn't preventing increasing the HP soon!).

What if someone just slapped the Z/28 badge on the ZL1 and gave it a matte white pearl wrap.

I agree with you 10,000%. Z28 or not, the Corvette is more prestigous car by far. Not to mention the cool factor. And we all know the flagship car is the Corvette. Therefore, I wouldn't buy a Camaro for what I could get a Vette for. The new C7 Vette will be a hair under $60k. That's almost like saying you'd buy a Corvette for what you could get a Ferrari 458 for. But, like you said...it's just my opinion. But, there will be some poor soul who's willing to spend upwards of $70k on one just to say he has one.
