so i was thinking

why now??? the desire for a 5th gen z28 has been here since the concept as far as i know. i mean beating the competition (boss) is pretty much done with the 1le. so is it just cuz we want one or is it something else??

could the blue oval boys be cooking up a surprise for the end of this gen mustang that gm is reacting to with rumors of a 427 camaro. i dunno just a thought what say yall

Could the z28 option be offered similar to the RS on an SS?

LS7 crate engine: $16,875 (normal retail price per GMPP site)
LS3 crate engine discounted price: $6,200
LS7 crate engine discounted price: $13,578

37,000-7646= 29,354+16,875= $46,224

37,000-6,200= 30,800+13,578= $44,378

I would predict that a Z28 Camaro would be a 1LE with the LS7 and the ZL1s brakes. I think GM can do this for $45,000 which would be a good price for a car like that with its performance. This Z28 Camaro should be right up on the ZL1 Camaro, the ZL1 Camaro is 7 pounds per horsepower and a est. 3,900 pound Z28 Camaro would be 7.7 pounds per horsepower. However the Z28 should handle and brake better then the ZL1 by virtue of being lighter.
I'm gonna guess they'll price it right at 50k with the 1LE options and some more goodies, right in line with what a Boss 302 Laguna Seca is priced at now. This thing is gonna rock. Even the guys on the Mustang forum are excited about it lol

"It is not the final document, as it does not include a complete or accurate list of models or content. As you can imagine, the VIN card requires a tremendous amount of collaboration to verify the production information for each model across all four GM brands sold worldwide.

Rest assured, when we finalize the 2014 VIN card, it will be complete and factually accurate."


So that adds one more piece of information to chew on and what this all means, if anything....
Don't rain on our parade Joe :(

Yeah there is a few douche bags, but the Mustang forums I visit are pretty good, and the "OMG FORD HAS THE NICEST NUTS I CAN SWING OFF OF" crowd tends to completely stay away from any Camaro threads, save for one or two members...one of which joined here not too long ago in an effort to pretty much just stir the pot. All the know how guys are genuinely excited about this, and honestly, gotta be a pretty ignorant bag of ass to think that an LS7 in a Camaro is not just bad ass.
