Just like other performance car manufacturers (Porsche, Aston Martin, Ferrari), when they strip a model down for track performance, you pay more money.

$67,490
True, sn't AC the only option?

Just looking at the integrity of the chassis work on the z28, coupled with the more limited driveability , says that GM is not planning mass production and the cars will be costly..........if you thought the zl1 was hard to get, this car will dwarf that demand by orders of magnitude...........the zl1 forums just about dried up overnight when this sucker was announced..........lets face it, all in all,this game is about one thing...........GOING THE FASTEST...........no awards for second.........i didnt like the styling of the hood at first, but now the raw agressive nature of the car has me in love ......no disco features and pure race appeal..gotta like it

Originally I said $75,000... I think I'm revising that up to $80-90,000. I figure it'll be special order so GM might sell 300-400 total over the next year or two.

Really??? I'm willing to bet the new Porsche GT3 991 will whip the Z28's arse on any road course. Funny thing is the GT3 has all the creature comforts AC, awesome stereo, navigation. Not to mention one of the fastest shifting transmissions on the planet. Good look beating that with any camaro.

Per Chevy website

Base corvette starts 49,600

LS7 corvette starts at 75,600

More like a 26K difference? is that your thinking, or am I misreading you?

32,635 1SS + 26K=58,635...

This is really a wild card to predict! GM could sell it as a limited production not actually making a profit on it. The "Halo" aspect of it will help sell other lesser cars that they will make a proffit on. Also, the expensive components like the brakes are to help a heavy car compete with lighter cars (aka Mustang) and the lighter car manufaturer can step up their game with less expensive efforts. Then there's the fact that the LS7 is an expensive hand built engine. But maybe the LS7 is where they intend to lose a little profit since it's at the end of its life cycle and money has been made on it in the Z06 for a while.

If I were to call price based on other Camaro models alone, I would think GM would be wise to price it just marginally higher than the ZL1 but still under $60k. Having said that I think they would lose money on each one sold for that price range.

At any price, It's cool to have a Z/28 return that is track focused and not just badges!

The existing 2013 Corvette Z06 is 75K (starts at) brand new . Doubt they will sell a Camaro for the same price. I'm thinking the Z/28 will be in the high 50's, possibly low 60's.

Except that the Z/28 is equipped more like a Z06 Carbon Edition than a regular production Z06. The Z06 Carbon Edition MSRP is over $100, 000. Coincidentally, GM claims the Z06 Carbon is 3 seconds faster around the track than the ZR1. That's right, I said 3 seconds faster than the ZR1.

That track was Milford proving grounds and, or Laguna Seca.

You read that wrong. The Z06 Carbon is 3 seconds faster than a standard Z06, not the ZR1. All the Z06 Carbon has is the go fast goodies off the ZR1, but it's still down 133hp.


Here is the quote from the article you linked

"GM says the Carbon’s lighter-but-more-robust equipment, such as the larger brakes and rolling stock, means the Z06’s curb weight stays the same at a still-feathery 3150 pounds, or about 200 fewer than the ZR1’s. The added grip and stability, however, translate into the Carbon being a claimed three seconds faster than the standard Z06 around both the company’s Milford, Michigan, proving grounds and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in California. The 638-hp ZR1, however, likely will still qualify on pole, GM concedes. "
