No More Than 4000 Units Over 2 Years, Track Specific Warranty.

"The Z/28 will see two years of production at a volume of no more than 4,000 units. GM will back the car with a track-specific warranty."

I'd say this is noteworthy....Looks more like "limited production" as opposed to the original statement of "whoever wants one can get one"....Should command a hefty price-tag, though, with a finite number....track warranty has gotta come at a premium as well...

....No biggie....I'm not surprised at the number they will make...Only so many LS7s available....

hefty price tag for sure. If any of the local dealers by me get one, I would not be shocked if it had a markup of 20-30K on it

At most, the Gen-5 Z/28 will see 16-18 months of production, spread over two model years.

From Al's in-car discussion with Jay Leno, "1,500 per year" was confirmed. In the Reuss discussion with Loh, Evans, Lieberman and Freiburger in their round table discussion, Wixom-only-built LS7s was discussed and confirmed.

Let's hope that total number improves to near-4,000. I think the market is there.

They're not making it in yellow. Red Hot, Ashen Gray, SIM, Black and Summit White are the only colors for be Z/28.

I don't have any strong choices yet, however I could see Ashen Gray with those black OE wheels as looking pretty bad-ass and sinister. Would also hide all the clag marks ;-)

Any clue what the MSRP will be on the Z/28? I was talking to a local performance shop owner and he thinks they'll be going for more than the ZL1's.

No secret that it will be more than the ZL-1s....Pricing has not been released....guesses run the whole spectrum....

1. What was thinking behind announcing the car painted in a color that is not for sale? How does that help, to draw people in, only to eventually let them know they cannot buy what they see?

2. Why isn't the pearl white color available for sale at a premium, when it is clearly possible to produce the color?

1) With all the twists 'n turns in the body work, especially the angles from doors to rear quarters, it's a shape that appears to have color mismatch...which is diminished with the low-gloss Pearl White. Makes for a great Show Car, though, which is NOT a new reality for just this car...

2) If the low-gloss Pearl White was offered on the full line of Camaros, then there'd be a better chance of its availability on the Z/28. As was anticipated, the color choices for the Z/28 are FEWER instead of more, due to it's relatively low production numbers...

I love the car but I don't see them selling 4000 of them over 2 years. The first dealers to get them will mark them up, and they will sit. Let's figure that they will base around $65k or so. That kind of money will buy you one hell of a Corvette with change left over. If the car was priced between the 1LE and the ZL-1 they would hit the number with room to spare. If it would base around $50k-$55k, they'd have a home run on their hands.

GM may intend to only sell that amount. If it's customers ask for more, they'll give them more.

Little known fact that has not been released,(Little birdie told me that's close to GM) The ZL-1 was only suppose to have a 2 year release of 500 cars per year with the 3rd year of productions over 1500. Now we see that they make as many as demand needs.
GM is in the business to make money, not to put out limit number cars. That's just a bad business model.
