Camaro Z/28 Pre-Order

I called my dealer the day after Camaro5 announced the Z/28 was a go and had him put my name on the list for the #1 to order and he did. I just emailed him to make sure I would get the car for MSRP with no markup, just like we did when we pre-ordered the camaro back in December. Now he writes me back and says this,

"I'm not sure yet. The Z28 will sell over MSRP, but I will make it very
competitive."


Competitive? I already told him I have my name on other lists at other dealerships that are offering MSRP at no markup, how can he compete with that? What a JackA**

They, clearly, care about bending you over more than obtaining future business from you.

You realize they don't have to honor your place in line at all, right? It's so far out there's no telling what pricing will be, or when production will start.

1- There has been no official word released yet

2- Why would any dealer "promise" MSRP on a product they know nothing about? For all we know whats coming could be a limited production car.... your not going to get that at MSRP.

If you personally know the finance manager you can usually be assured that you won't pay over MSRP. I got one of the first GXP's in NC and I didn't pay over sticker. Every other dealership I called wanted a minimum of $2500 over MSRP.

I agree..How can you be put on the list for a car that hasn't even been officially announced yet and like shnomac said is most likely still 2 years away from hitting the lots. And we basically know nothing about the Z28 except for what we dream about on this forum lol. This isn't a Ferrari or something of sort, it's an American made muscle car. Come on...if you call a dealer for a car that is 2 years out and say I want one put me on the list of course he's going to think he can take you for every penny you have cause you have basically already told him that you are willing to do whatever it takes to get the car cause you want it that bad.

I would bet that most dealers will try and get over MSRP just like most dealers did on the regular SS when she first came out. And some people will pay over MSRP just to say they got a Z28 before the majority of everyone else.

promising MSRP this early is pretty crazy, good thing he didn't take a deposit, he'd probably be fired pretty soon....

A few salesman got fired over the same thing back in october november last year with the 2010 models
