No way its going to be close to $70K. When you guys are adding numbers, you are removing cost for the item you are replacing right? I mean, the additional cost of a LS7 OVER a LS3 is approx $7500. Remember, all this wiz-bang stuff (except the new dampers) is older vette and caddy items. I come up with around + $17K for mechanicals. Add $3K for new trim bits, glass..etc. That's $20K + $34K for a 1SS "stripped" car and the total is $54K. I would be totally surprised if it stickers for over $58K.

I think $75K may be too close to Corvette territory for Chevy's comfort. Guys with gobs of cash want comfort. I am hoping this is $50K or less. I suspect we'll find out soon...just not soon enough since i want to know right freaking now.

Standard engine could have been the LS7(or my humble opinion it's own engine) fine, no RS package avail, etc. Just starting it at less is more is just plain silly. These are basically COPO cars that are street legal.

I am afraid it may be closer to 65k. The ls7 is pretty expensive. I am hoping that since the z06 was around 75 but was fully loaded with options and this is no options maybe that will be reflected in the price but we will just have to wait and see.

If Ford built a 5.8 NA at 88 HP/L like the 302, it would be about 515 HP. With what it took to get that power from the 302, I doubt they would be able to get much more out of a NA 5.8.

You have to look at the components. The LS7, carbon ceramic brakes, exotic suspension pieces, Recaro seats, specialized bushings, dry sump, lightweight glass, wheels & tires are all extra $$$ upgrades over the ZL1. My guess is that the Z/28 is going to be priced at least $10-15K above the ZL1. It will outperform the ZL1 on track & maybe even at the strip due to less weight.

In 1967 a Z-28 was not a well mannered car by any means, and it was built with a purpose. Racing.
Fast forwar to 2014. Car is built for? exactly. racing. And so it should be.
Its still licencable unlike a copo, and people who appreciate them for what they are will still buy them for street use just as was done in 1967.
The car has come full circle and I applaude GM for the direction it took.
Says the guy with a highly modded ZL1($$$). People like Rick Hendrick & Jay Leno will appreciate them in their garages more than on the track. Probably more likely to see one at a car show than on the street/track. That's the pity.

Yeah, the Z/28 is going to be $$$. The perfect Z/28 would have even more aggressive weight savings like lightweight doors/panels, manual windows, & rear seat & console delete. It would also have extra gauges in place of radio, extra bracing, rollbar, & a dry sump, high-revving 302 based off the new LT1. Keep the ZL1 brakes, coolers, & add upgraded coilovers & 1LE package. GM could have kept the price in the low $40s. It would have been more accessible to regular guys on a budget.

Z/28 is essentially the COPO Camaro for road racing.

It's not a 1LE with an LS7 or a ZL1 without the LSA and MRC. It's more for track performance than street like the aforementioned variants and while not quite to the extreme the COPO is the idea is the same.

Cobra R is a perfect example. Although I wouldn't expect production to be limited.

with the help of direct injection how many valves per head and how many cams? yes i agree we are kinda in the dark age with OHV but i can't explain why I love them other than they are so much easier to tear apart and rebuild and a h/c package doesn't cost as much as a new s60 lol

G.M., don't build that kind of horses with a 5.0, but they can and should! 6.2. Liter cars should make much more hp and tq

I'm thinking it'll be $59,995. Depending on the options, it may go upwards to $64,995.

Not true. D.I, 4 cams 32v can make more hp/l than the ohv.

I don't wanna sound like a complete and total nut job here -- but maybe we should wait for Chevy to announce pricing before speculating our way off the deep end?

A noble thought, but doubtful it will catch on...lol...I'd say it's fair sport for now...Pricing may be a while off...If they'd say when they will announce the price, you would be spot on...lol...
