Guessing $59K plus destination, gas guzzler tax, and stealership markups of $10K or more. This will be a low production model. The Wixom Engine Plant where the LS7 is hand assembled reportedly only has the capacity to build 20,000 LS7s per year. Unlikely that Wixom would increase LS7 capacity as the LS7 maybe has 1 or 2 years left of being in production. That potenitally means there would only be 20,000 to 40,000 total Z/28s built in 2014 and 2015.

Z/28s are likely to cost around $80K out to door.

I'm gonna try to get one of the first 2014 1LEs. Probably going with Red Hot 2SS/ no RS, with Recaros and NPP. Hope they didnt change the wheels. I hope my fourth gen lasts that long. Getting the exhaust welded next week hopefully before it falls completely off.

The base price of a 1969 Camaro Z/28 was less than $3,200. I suppose that wasn't cheap back then, but I would guess that it was much more affordable than 2014 will be.
GM forgot about the "original intent" of the car.

It's def going to be a limited car and for what it is I can see mid 60s, which to me is bunkers when its so heavliy stripped of anything to consider this anything else outside of just straight racing. If one is buying this car for anything else besides just pure racing it they will regret it once the wow factor wears off and then think for the money they just spent they should get the comfort and luxury stuff as well.

Personally I'm getting a Jaguar F-Type which starts around 69k and still take this car to lunch and have all the luxury items(Well the V8S model). Hope everyone that wants one can afford it and not have to sell off other cars, basically I hope they don't outprice the legion here that really made this car possible.

To those of you thinking tha this car will be less that 48k I really feel bad for you when you actually get the sticker shock. Of the things that are removed from this car to lower the weight and/or price is trivial..really you think that removing the carpet and sound deadening material will drop the price 10k so they can add 25k worth of options! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Better order your 1LE then.

I feel bad for all the people guessing/hoping for the high 40s low 50s. Yeah that would have been awesome, but you live by the sword you die by sword.

People wanted a car reminiscent of the 67-69 Z/28 Camaros. A race car you drive on the street. A car that will dominate the race track. Well you go it. This car has some of the best performance goodies you can buy and Unfortunately all that go fast stuff adds up a lot quicker than a stereo and cd player. This car will destroy pretty much anything that gets in its way on a race track. Bravo to GM for building a street legal race car but you got to pay to play.

Im guessing on the low end 65K and wouldnt be suprised to see dealers try to tack on 10-15k more.

Your Joking right, lol this car still will get ate up by a GTR. This car won't be better then a Z06 and that can't beat a GTR. GTR is ZR1 level and if you think this car will be in those groups, well then there is no hope for mankind.

And then there have been some like me, trying to tell people to watch what they were asking for..you got it, and I will not say your welcome. I have been asking all along for a 5.3L DI(purpose built) manual only, 1SS/LE than was "manicured" at the plant. The Zeta platform is a pig to begin with I am sure that there is plenty more aluminum they could throw at it(doors, fenders, hood, trunklid, roof etc) and cut a hole here and there..no sunroof...and ya'll said that would cost money but it sure takes less engineering to replace a steel panel in the press with an aliminum one! Instead of carbon ceramic brakes it could have been bigger rotors and brakes. Would all of that cost money? Yep, but not 30k more than a base 1SS. The biggest cost factor still is the LS7 and I have bantered on about it not being cheap and cost effective for the Camaro.

I thought they said the Z28 is faster than the ZL1? And the ZL1 was pretty close to the GTR already.

$64,995. Out the door? $75000. Is it worth that? Not even close. Subtract $30000 and that's what it's worth. But of course GM is looking to make a car for ppl to drool at. Not drive. So there you have it folks.

I don't know if it's already been suggested but I think we could look at the price premium of the Zo6 Carbon Edition over a Base Zo6 to get an idea of what the Z28 will cost.

A lot of the goodies on the Zo6 Carbon Edition makeup the Z28 Edition.

While it is nice to guess the MSRP and observe the guess that are falling in the $40K to $80K range, we need to be careful of guessing too high.

GM may see us as potential customers and think that we are will to pay $80K for it!
