There's no replacement for displacement, give me the LS7 in a 1LE for under $45,000 and I will trade in my 2012.

I would prefer if GM stays with what the Z28 is supposed to be instead of what the masses want. The masses are getting what they want in the v6 and SS. Let the masses accumulate around the Z28 when it is built.

What's cooler than a Camaro or Corvette? I think if someone said that these cars are the "face of the company" it's probably because of the notariety factor, IMO.

You don't have to believe that they will come out with the Z/28 in the 5th Gen, but those here do and you won't change their minds. There is still 3 years before the next gen.....that's a lot of time for things to happen

My dealer quoted me a 1SS with a 1LE package for less than $35,000. The crate engine LS3 is around $8,000 verses $12,000 for a LS7. I don't see why it couldn't happen at that price.

LS3 = $6.5-7.5K, these days most places.

LS7 = roughly $13-14K, depending on source.

Add "development co$t$", HD diff. from ZL1, ZL1 rear 305s, ZL1 6-pistons, and figure mid/upper $40s with some grippier seats.

Don't forget a ramair and/or extractor hood.

And Bob's your uncle!

Sierra Motors in Jamestown, CA talk to Todd. That is the price only if you order it from them. I got my 2012 1ss for $32,400 ordering it through them.

What if the car you mentioned was MSRP around $50K and then a gas guzzler tax on top of that. Would you still be interested?

I believe if GM stuffed an LS7 into a 5th gen, it would have more in common with the ZL1 than a 1SS that's why I said it couldn't be had for 45...ZL1(55k)-LSA+LS7=48/50k+GG

Don't forget the carbon insert, MRC and I'm sure there are other parts they could leave out.

Just a few Friday afternoon hypothetical questions;

IF GM offered an LS7 engine option to the 1LE package on an SS would that be acceptable?

How about if they didn't use the Z28 moniker and simply called it 1LE LS7 or something like that?

Would an MSRP for any Camaro/LS7 combo over $50k and a gas guzzler tax be acceptable?

Would a 5th Gen Camaro Z28 be accepted if it wasn't LS7 powered?

My feeling is that a 1LE+LS7+ZL1 Brakes+Aero = Z28

I fully believe they would call it a Z28

I don't see it going over $50K

I would accept a new DI V8 in a Z28 if it was above a base V8

Would a 5th Gen Camaro Z28 be accepted if it wasn't LS7 powered?........Yes.......but with more HP than a SS.



That's my opinion and I know others will be different. We all want ice cream, just different favors.

I also agree with Gramps. I also don't think we would see a new DI 5th gen SBC any sooner than the last production year of the 5th gen Camaro. The 6th gen Camaro will surely have nothing but 5th gen SBCs if you want a V8.

Agreed. so let's have the finale 5th Gen with the previously reserved for 'Vette owners "forbidden" motor in a high rev, close ratio, steeper final drive gear track suspension Z28. We won't have to worry about p'ing off anyone then, will we?

With two kids in college its not likely. $50,000 is just more than I want to spend. I would rather get a 475hp LS3 1LE package plus 6 piston brembos on front for under $45,000. Just my opinion.

It doesn't need to have the Z28 moniker, but that is certaainly an added inducement to purchase.

I think the the LS7 Z28 is coming and that it will start around $45,000+. You will not see the Z28 if it is built for less money than that. Why build the 1LE if the Z28 was going to be cheap? Expect a Z28 at Boss LS prices with high content. It will be a Halo car like the ZL1. Chevy is soft pedaling the 1LE leaving marketing room here for another HP Camaro.

Now this is just guessing like most everyone else here. But if you read enough threads on C5 there are clues. Sometimes it can be what is said or not said.

I would not think we will hear anything official until at least the end of the year once the 1LE gets its day in the sun. I suspect a firm decision on building the Z28 has not been made yet. And I am getting no one in trouble.

For my vote the dream Z28 is not car that most want on this forum. I do not agree there is only one true interpretation of the next Z28. But if this one comes we may see mine the next one after that. I am encouraged hearing about Corvettes running around with small V8 turbos. Future that.

I would like to see a Z28 with ZL1 aero and brakes, 1LE suspension, BOSS 302 LS power to weight, minimal electronics on the inside and Z28 specific wheels. Black with red stripes, RS package and my name on the title.
