If its that low I'll definitely sell my SS to get one. I was just about to start doing some mods so I hope they come out with the price soon.

I just don't see how it will come in at 47k, when the base GT500 is 48.6 and the ZL1 delivers more. Camaro's have been 1-2k more than the counterpart Mustang for the last 2 years, I highly doubt that will suddenly change in the opposite direction.
I think there is justification in a premium, especially in this model, so this post wraps-up exactly my thoughts.

I will bet that car will be between 55 to 60 G's. A loaded SS now can reach about 40 or more. The blower alone is enough to bring the cost to 47 not to mention everythinbg else it has. My prediction would put it on par with what the GT500's are going for.

That would be awesome, but Im not so sure. Those auto sites were claiming prices months ago, before we even had a clue exactly what the car was going to be.

Believe it when I see it. Pricing is one of the last things GM does before a car is launched. Prob safe to say GM doesn't know either.

The RS package will likely be an additional option.

It sounds like RS package content is standard on ZL1; body color roof moldings, HIDs, and all the rest. I think the biggest option will be the suede package.

Yeah, they will not off the RS package on this. You ever heard of a ZL1 RS?

The ZL1 will be priced UNDER $50,000 and if you put every option you can on the car it might make $53-55K.
Otherwise the people who do their homework will buy a Grand Sport.
GM has a tight window of pricing otherwise they'll drive people to the Corvette. Heck, you can buy a new Corvette coupe(non-Grand Sport) now for in the 40k range so those 50K+ numbers don't make any sense.

I agree... If this car is in the 50s then people would just buy a vette considering the fact the target audience is the performance fans.... I'm gonna say it starts at 46000..... I don't really think there will be that many extra options. I think the car will come with pretty much all of it on it anyway.

I hope a;; this is so about the pricing because I was prepared to pay 45k for a 2SS/RS with just exhaust painted stripes and the optional 21" wheels.

I believe the ZL1 Announcement transcript that Team CAMARO considers the two in different markets. Have a look, later in the transcript for the comments. I don't think they're really looking into this aspect as much as some might think.

That's JMVHO though

"I read this earlier.... that is a pretty good price! I wonder what the base model would not have?"

At $47k it probably won't have wheels.
IMO Those in the under$ 50k camp are going to be disappointed.

Charles - Corvette is a very different car in a lot of ways. 2 seats vs 4, for starters. And Vette has incredible performance, design, tech that is all its own
