Rumor: Camaro ZL1 base price: $47,000. Per C&D (Update: Debunked by fbodfather?)

Update: Fbodfather's response:

Didn't read the thread past the first post......

I have yet to see C & D show up (or be invited) to a Camaro Team meeting........

Take what you hear on price with a grain of salt.

"We’ve learned that the 550-hp 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, introduced today at the Chicago auto show, will wear a base price of around $47,000 when it goes on sale next February."
Even better than the $50,000 estimate!

Start saving your pennies. I am!

Are we sure this will be the price though? I would have though GM would announce the true price first?

Personally, the ZL1 is great and I can see why people would want to trade for the Z, however, the SS is a beast and can easily be turned into a Monster.
Its really personal, and that price is pretty good, I bet you well be getting raped on that up North.

as much as $47K sounds like to much... i guess its only around $10K more than a 2SS-RS... and with a part list you could not purchase in the aftermarket for the same amount....
i guess you could even consider this a value?

I would agree, LSA, suspension, beefed up tranny, upgraded interior, definitly is a value

I read this as well. We'll see what the final number looks like, but anywhere in this neighborhood is DAMNED good for what you're getting! 47k prob won't get you suede, but whodafakcares?

Maybe someday...

Without a doubt. You could not get an SS up to this level of performance without spending an additional 12-15k...
