Should the Z/28 be to the Camaro what the GS is to the Vette?

Your thoughts?

Oh no not another what a Z28 should be thread.. these are getting old fast... the Z28 will be what Chevy makes it and that is that...just wait and see, no matter what it is when it comes out you will have people on here praising it for what it is and some hateing it for what it isn't.. Chevy will never be able to please everyone...

why should it be only a GS? lol. seems to me like you want it dirt cheap. why not the Zo6? or ZR1? granted I have my reasonings behind not a ZR1 style. but a GS? nope that should be the track pack SS. the Z should be like a Zo6. IMO.


now Dad. . . .I just can't say anything I really want to. but you're right it will be whatever chevy makes it. and you are right about the people. just like there are people complaining about the camaros out now. . .

The GS is a filler between a great car and a serious performer. The Z28 is going to be the next great performer for the Camaro line, hopefully to be topped only by the ZL1 if GM makes one. The GS slot probably won't be filled for any Camaro. Think of the Z28 as a Z06 for the Camaro.

Z28 should be more of a Z06 style car than the Grand Sport

Just asked the question for other's opinions. Would I like to see a low $40K Z/28 yes!
If it is a Z/06 counterpart expect $50K+. A ZL1 would be $60K+. That is crazy money! Those would be true low volume marketing pieces. :(

well I'm expecting 48k starting point for the Z28. which would be close enough to your 50k due to mark up and options. lol. and for a GS style camaro. . .I'd expect to be 40k. . .lol. just don't personally see the Z being a GS although it'd be interesting concept.

thing with the grand sport is that it has most of the important bits from the track star Z06 offered on an otherwise base car. This formula wouldn't really work on the Camaro unless its SS brakes and suspension offered on a V6 car since there is no higher tier parts bin to pick from right now.

The GS is more like a "track pack"...the Z28 should be equivalent to a Z06: Race-ready.

Z28 should be the equivalent of a Z06. Isn't the Grand Sport just some Z06 parts with cosmetic modifications? Personally, I don't think something of that caliber deserves to be a Z28.
