I think if it's even close to the base rate of $60K like the CTS-V forget about it ...... Now is not the time for a car like that. Maybe 5 years from now when more people are working maybe .....

based on the difference between a base CTS and a CTSV

I think it's reasonable to assume that the Z28 can be less than 50K.

FWIW.

Seeing what the CTS-V sells for the new, I would guess the Z28 would come in at $48,000 to $55,000? A good friend of mine just got a smoking good deal on a 09 CTS-V for $62,000 loaded. If the Z28 was $10,000 less than a CTS-V and 200-300 LBS lighter that would be a no brainer to most real car guys. I know it's a Caddy but people are putting down some big HP with these cars! My good friend Jim has 605HP at the rear wheels with his 09 CTS-V!!! I just hope this dream comes true!

I'm a big Camaro and Z/28 Honk but...I can't see myself buying a 50K Camaro. It's 45 at the very highest. And those of you that say 50K based on the LSA engine, consider the following:

LS3 is in the Base Vette and Base SS Camaro and they are 48k and 31k respectively. Keeping that ratio in mind the Z/28 if it had the same LSA as the CTS-V would cost 39K. The math goes as follows: 48k/31k = 60k/x in the equation x = 38.75 so I rounded that to about 39K for a base price on Z/28. Using the same figure or equation only substituting the 31k for the 36K price of an 2SS RS, a Z/28 should be priced at about 45k. That should be the bottom line.

I think a few of us are not thinking rationally about the pricing vs. what you get/want in the Z/28. If the Z/28 comes with an LSA motor I would expect a starting point of ~$45K. If the Z/28 (or ZL1) comes with the LS9/LS8 motor I would expect the starting point to be closer to ~$52K.

That's just my opinion on the matter.

I wonder if they'd have the 1 Z/28 and the 2 Z/28 like they have the 1SS and 2SS.

I'm guessing the base price on it would be high 40's to low 50's (something similar to the CTS-V).

I wouldn't pay more than you could for a base gt500, and I like the LSA but I believe a stock LS7 has more potential IMO, what will be the ultimate deciding factor between the z28 and ss is the weight, i would be more than will to spend 50 or less if it was 200 to 400 lbs less than the 2010 model. I am already saving for the next year to buy my camaro ss, but if the z28 really comes in to production at a lighter weight and reasonable price than I am game

im assuming those are in american dollars lol.
here in canada its almost $43,000 for a full loaded 2SS/RS. so a z28 should start somwhere around there and feature everything the 2SS/RS has but with specific z28 parts(hood, front facia, rear bumper, interior trim, motor, suspension...) and z28 only options like paint, navigation, special seat packages( like recaro), HUD(the thing that shoots the mph/km on ur windsheild),...

Hey just like they have a 1SS and a 2SS
that just might happen with the Z/28

1.) 1 Z/28 just like the 1SS no leather and all the rest of the upgrades.
MSRP 43,429.00

2.) 2 Z/28 fully loaded without the nav....
$48,589.00, nave your looking at about $50,235.00

Reading between the lines of some respected players posts, I believe it will be pretty loaded and between $48,000. - $53,000.
Well, I'm back to the real world of buying and modifying a SS/1.
p.s. hey Pedder's perfect that suspension yet?

NEW info posted I may be wrong!?!?

I agree.

The CTS DI is...$39,000. Minus the standard auto-tranny? Let's call it 38k.
V6 Camaro is 23k....that's a $15,000 difference.

CTS-V - $15,000?
$43,000. That's IF the cars are identical in drivetrain, and the conditions (features/profit ratio) is the same as well...

Basically -- I agree with Junkie.

Since we're talkin' pennies...why compare the MSRP of a Z28 to a good deal on a Corvette?

Just curious on this...does this statement take into account better performance/features, etc?

Given that the LS7 is out due to halting production...200lbs lighter would be a MAX reduction...and it would come at a hefty price...easily over your 50k cieling.:(
