...they may play the hard to get card....but for sure, the LS7 is going bye bye real fast unless GM gets some license to keep on making them for market. That is highly doubtful, and not part of GM's outlook going forward IMHO.

Al O. And Scott S. both already said it would be the most expensive Camaro to date - so at a minimum it'll be $1 more than the MSRP for the vert ZL1

I can't talk about the price - but I'd love to know the person at GM that said such a foolish thing.

Take a 1LE -- price that out

Add an LS7 Engine (go price one of those out0

Add the carbon/ceramic brakes -- (go price those out)

........and then start to look at the list of 'what's different' -- and start pricing for that............

Oh - and then one has to take into consideration the cost to reverse engineer for the car without A/C. (...no, you can't just remove it...)

-- and in order to get it approved, we had to show how we'll make money on it (...it's called return on investment - and that investment is not only monetary, but track time, personnel, etc....)

The answer is that there is no way this car is going to be anywhere near 40K.

That's all I can say.....

Okay I just heard........!!!

I always get a chuckle when the thread starts with "a friend said, a guy I know told me, my dealer says that". It is different when you can reference a real person as a source from GM, as fbodfather actually is! I have priced ceramic brakes before. I am pretty sure 90% of you will back down as soon as the actual price to upgrade to them is released.

Ok, My honest dealer actually did call me today..... No Z/28 news, no surprise there.

After reading fbodfather's post, I'll finally take a stab at the MSRP........ $67,995 base model.
I am adding in a guesstimate of $4,000/unit profit for GM which at a production of 4,000 units is $16 million profit.

Hemm...I wonder what it would cost...

Quote:
Take a 1LE -- price that out
2014 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE (from build and price - base) - $37,550.00

Quote:

OK. $14,000.00 for the engine + $2449 for the front accessory drive (so $16,450.00 - I was looking to see about putting one of these in a car once).

Quote:

So someone said somewhere that the brakes are like $10,000.00, right?

I can't imagine the cost of the rest of the options like the lighter glass (Which has to withstand all of the bumps rattles and shifts the car goes through while still being lighter and removing the a/c)

Just being a 1LE + LS7 + Ceramic Brakes + FADK...

$37,550 + $16,450 + 10,000 = 64,000.00 (rounded off a little).

$64,000.00. And that's without figuring out the rest of the parts and labor that went into making this car work. Ladies and Gentlemen I would say that the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will be at least 69,995 (they will want to make a profit on it - they are a business).

Expect to pay 70,000.00 for the car.

That's my guess.

P.S there are several reports out there on the internet - interviews with various GM people - that state that the Z/28 will be more expensive than the ZL1. I'd love to track them down for you but I figure where is the fun in that?
