i posted in another thread back in may the car would be limited to 1500 units... i don't think anyone caught that!!! i also said the car would be priced somewhere around 80,000, and production will start in april 2014 and it will be a one year run ... so far i got one right.

Sometimes I question Jay's "true car guy" cred. Lots of huh? moments.

Still huge congrats to GM and even 23 mpg, wow!

Thought the same thing and meant to write it but forgot to. An aggressive stance for sure. There is nothing poseur looking about it as opposed to other wannabe "track cars" on the road. Going to be intimidating on the track for sure.

It will also be interesting to see what the ratio of garage-queen-still-in-the-factory-plastic Z/28s to tracked Z/28s ends up at.
Yeah, it is always sad to me to hear of the bubble-wrappers getting their unappreciative hands on cool cars and packing them away for the sake of speculation. Pathetic really. As a car guy, I want to use the product as the creators intended. The whole never been rained on, never touched by human hands or looked at with an angry glance car ads just nauseate me. Here's a big FU to any of you jackwads reading this.

If it's an unlimited build, who cares? I think despite Jay's comment there will be as many as wanted.

LoL ....... WoW, more then a ZL1 and North of $56,500 ........ Maybe folks are correct, this car looks like it will be a $70,000 Camaro the more we hear about it, insane but cool ...

By the way, let's be honest ...... who will really be racing this car on a consistent basis, like the car was originally designed for ??? I'm not talking about 1 or 2 races a year or even 3 events .... And is the car under warranty when raced or if something malfunctions ?

Jay Leno reviews 2014 Z/28 Camaro - August 12 [video]

This car is perfection

If only the lower models could rid themselves of that ugly chrome strip like the Z28 was able to sneak past without. Great job GM

Yes!
What chrome? The eyebrow that's part of the RS package?

That is OK, they probably think you are nuts for driving the damn thing.

Of course I hope you are right but the quote from the Jay/Al video is

Jay: "The cool thing is they're only going to build about, what, 1500 of this a year?"

Al: "That's right, yup..."

Some of you guys know way better than I do, from past GM/Chevy experience, if Al is prone to being agreeable in these interview situations or if he would have said something to the effect of "No, we plan to build as many as the market has appetite for". What is his past track record of sticking to interview claims?

If their conversation is to be taken at face value, Chevy decided to do a limited edition after all. Or it's constrained by capacity to hand build the engines. Or both. Hey, it's all just mental masturbation. I've got no opinion which way it will go and will just wait, with my March dated, signed, MSRP buyers order and see what shakes out.

We'll know soon enough, in TWO WEEKS! Right?

Sorry, couldn' t resist...

You are right of course. And I'll pay for it when I eventually do sell, "He tracked it! Waaaa! It's ruined! Waaaa! Gimme a 75% discount because you tracked it!". I'm so over that crowd...haha.

No one asks the question: what's the value of a frequent Z/28 induced dopamine and endorphin high? Priceless, I'd contend. Certainly far more than than whatever the bubble wrappers will ever make in "profit", when corrected for inflation. Seems that minor issue is always conveniently overlooked. If you are honest with yourself, cars aren't investments no matter what anyone will try to tell you. Or what you tell your wife...

PS- I take some solace in seeing a new BOSS 302/S (that's the Ford parts dept sold race car, for those who don't know) went for less than MSRP at the Reno Barrett-Jackson. Sold for $75k as I recall, new ones sold for $85/$89k depending on 3-way shocks or not. So maybe the bubble wrappers have less interest in specialty track cars and don't muck up the market for new Z/28's. It's not a direct comparison for the Z/28 so not sure how applicable my assumption might be.

I snicker when guys talk about having a 2013 1LE or a 2010 SS or a 2012 ZL1 as though it has "great" long term value. How many 5Gens are there? Even the Z/28 at 3,000 plus units will be hard pressed to see an increase in value for many many years. Bottom line "live in the now" and enjoy the car.
