It may just be me but if i had the money to buy a Z/28 i would. I love the looks plus it can seat four, and best part it has that fantasic sounding and powerful LS7. The suspension is as good as its gonna get so ill leave that alone, i would put my own stereo in it if i wanted, and if wanted a little more kick cam, maybe headers and supercharger. It may not be the best at everything but it will be one he!! of a car. Yea i could get i corvette or other fast cars for the money but if i wanted those cars i would be speaking about them.

certain dealers by me were adding 2-3K to just the SS when it first came out in late 09. I would not be surprised if those certain dealers were adding 15-25K to a Z/28 if they got one.

I don't want all the extra crap. In fact if I could sign a waiver and get one without the bull**** airbags I would.
In GM days past, you could take some money to the Chevy dealership and sit down with an order form. You could put almost any engine in any of the various models of "full size" Chevys. It would be awesome if you could order the parts you want on your Z and leave the others out. Yeah, I know...they are engineered to perform with certain parts installed for safety reasons etc. But there could have been a Z28 pick and choose on the order form. Now, the only option is AC and a couple minor parts.

This thread sounds a lot like the 2014 Corvette threads on Corvetteforum. Everyone criticized the new Corvette until they released the performance numbers. Now, it's a totally different story. I'm sure, once the performance factors are released, all will see the Z28 Camaro as a great bargain...they'll have no trouble selling all they can build...IMO.

I have yet seen a Camaro 1LE at the track I go to
...I run about once a month

I'd love to see a 1LE at the track
I run at Eagles Canyon Raceway just north of Dallas

yes the Z28 so far sounds impressive, now lets see the price?
I know MSRP on Bosses were in the low to mid 40's
It's pretty obvious, you didn't try to buy a Boss LS. I did and the lowest price I found off the dealer showroom floor was $78K. Now, in retrospect, God did me a favor by keeping me from buying one of Ford's "best" track cars.

im not saying thats not true, but we both know the c6 was about 3 years past it's expiration date.. people were tired of parts bin changes, they wanted some substance.. the z28 is a parts bin car and the only exclusivity you really are getting is the suspension.. the motor, although more powerful, isn't anything as exciting as when the motor was released for the ZL1..

Wheels, tires, breaks, suspension, aero, rear glass, harnesses and other parts aren't exclusive enough?

The LSA wasn't released for the ZL1, it was already in the CTS-V.

The only thing I'll be soooo disappointed with will be GM. I can easily live without a new Z/28, if I believe they price it way out there.

At over $80,000 for a little more I can get a M5 or GTR or a 2013 z06

I'm guessing between $59,995 & $64,995

They would not get many buyers at anything over that.

This car is cool but it still has hardly any comfort features, a cheep interior and its old tech, at least the motor.

The camaro is a younger mans car. With the new C7 its going to be hard to order a Z/28 for all but the most serious track guys.

It all depends if they are shooting for super limited production or a new model to the camaro line.

Chevy is a business they want to sell cars, sell 1500 cars for 85k or sell 5000 cars a year for 62k?

But what if they "can't" build 5000? Sadly, with the content changes combined with the "necessary" low volume, a higher-than-desired MSRP is the result.

Remember the development co$t$ MUST be covered...by "X" volume... If it was possible to raise the volume to "2X", the resulting MSRP would only drop by a very few $1,000, NOT 10s of $1,000s.

Keep in mind, too, this version sets the stage for the Gen-6 Z/28 and its undoubted performance improvements (!!) Built and available earlier in that Generation's lifecycle, we'll see enhanced performance AND a more moderate price point...and I can't wait for THAT one...lighter, better weight-to-power, and even more nimble.

nope, none of that stuff matters (except for the suspension, as i previously mentioned).. it's like Porsche putting nylon pull tabs on a RS door panel instead of traditional door lever.. it's a selling point, but a real racer is going to take the door panel completely off..

i dont care what the LSA was initially released for, the point is that when it was released for the Camaro, the reception from US (The Camaro Community) was more thrilled than the LS7..
