I just dont see how GM can offer a Z/28 with an LSA for less than 50K. Look at what Ford raised the GT500 price to.

So would you still buy a Z if it cost 50k +

If you read here people keep saying the the Z in not going after the Shelby. But I have a friend that works at GM and on the Camaro project. The Z is going after the Shelby for sure.

so you don't think the base car could be under 50k? I do. now optioned out hell no it will be way above 50k.

as for your last statement. . .care to spill the beans on the details then? I had to ask.

Nope, I'm going to keep mine. For the amount of money that I'm saving up for a supercharger, exhaust, intake and some other goodies, I have a feeling I am going to come out further in the end when it comes to cost ratio.

If the Z-28 is Supercharged, I would be very interested.

As one of the guys that does NOT own a new Camaro and is waiting to see what GM is going to do, I will toss my two cents in. I have owned numerous Vettes but never a Camaro. Getting close to retirement and decided that the new Camaro was going to be my present to myself. I have decided to wait to see what GM does about a Z28. I want this Camaro to have at least 550 HP and a warranty. If GM builds an an LSA 550 HP Z28 with a little better handling package then my deposit goes in the first day it is available. If it becomes a Jay Leno TT V6 with 425 HP then I will buy an SS and ship it to SLP for their ZL575 package, just because right now, I like their package the best. The upcoming Edelbrock E-Force holds a lot of promise and might become a canidate as well. Right now I have the luxury of being able to wait. I would prefer to have the mystic of owning a Z28 but for me, it also has to be the right car to last me a lot of years or what I have left anyhow.

And when it does come out, and the owner works it over a bit...then it will kick your SS's ass. :-)

If/when it comes out, it will be priced north of 50 or right around there so for most it wont matter.

I wouldn't...

And by the time the Z28 comes out, the 2010 Camaro will be called a collectors car, and a 1969 Camaro would be called ancient.

But it will be. Just like the GT500 is a supercharged Mustang GT. Right?

no, i love my SS but if the motor is super hot I would convince my wife that she needs her own Camaro and that would be it. I would wash it and fill it with gas and take it to the store for her...she will fall for that!!!

Well the March Motor Trend has a write-up on the new Shelby GT-350 with a blown 5.0 aluminum DOHC engine that will be in the 515 HP plus range. The Mustang GT gets the new 5.0 enigine with 415 HP. The V6 gets 305HP and all of these new Mustangs will be out this summer. With no Z28 for over a year, Ford again gets a jump ahead of GM with the GT-350.

The GT350 is no more a Ford product than a Ligenfelter is a Chevy.

And I'm sure if you read that article on the new GT350, then you saw the MSRP of $63k for it as well.

What would you do with a $33k 2SS/RS and an EXTRA $30k to mod it up???

That is a nice looking car no doubt, but redicious if you'd want my $.02.
