I'm guesstimating about 43K for a "1SS" optioned type package, with staggered option packages bringing it up a good several thousand or so. Oh yeah, not to mentioned the fact that certain unscrupulous dealers will be charging their BS "market adjustment" to it, and those dumb enough, will pay it.

I predict it will be north of 50k and will be even more exciting than anyone ever thought before. Also, I predict it will be the best Camaro that's ever been produced.

...both in a straight line....and in the twisties.

That's a lot of predicting.

I predict that it will be a BAD A$$ Camaro.

I'm thinking it will come in right around $50,000 give or take a little and will turn out to be even better than what people are expecting. The ZR1 program taught GM a lot about producing a serious world class sports car and I think it will end up paying off for the Camaro community.

My thoughts were if one had to ask how much it would be, it would be outside of one's budget.

Based on the physical realities of enhanced suspension, transmission and etc..along with the LSA motor and the "premium" nature of the Z28...

Somewhere between 48-52K to start, and north of there with options.

I also predict that the Z28 is going to be a truly unbelievable beast.

Until it comes out, isn't the SS the best Camaro ever built? Go GM!

$1,000,000,000... JK. I'm voting GT500-range plus a "premium".

if it has the LSA, expect it to cost more than the GT500 but less than a CTS-V

that's the problem with a $50,000. Camaro. most car guys given the choice would buy a Vette at such a comparable price. the Vette is a better built and engineered performance vehicle. I can't see the Z28 starting above $45,000. if it is to be successful long-term.

What if the Z28 is faster, both in a straight line and in the corners, than a base Corvette?

It's going to be.

But it will probably end up starting right at $50K.

I'd still get a Vette. It fits me so much better than Camaro Well, I fit it in better when I sat in a couple.

Never underestimate what people are willing to pay for a car, even one that underperforms for the money. Especially one with alot of heritage. Like the GT-350 for example. Its not always about having the fastest car in its class, sometimes its just about the rarity.

It isn't always about money or what you get for it. For some people, it doesn't matter and it's more about the love for the nameplate. It'd be unfortunate if the price got that high, making it really unobtainable for the regular person, but at least Z28 would be back and I'm sure it'd be worth the wait.

I keep hearing this, but it makes no sense. The C7 Vette starts getting built in april 2012 (by my understanding). It will most likely move up in price and performance, If the Z/28 comes out at the end of 2011 as a 2012 Model year GM does not have to worry about competeing with the vette at all. Besides the z/28 is competing (in the eyes of your average consumer) against the GT-500 which cost $53k if you add its performance package. I bet the base C7 will cost about $60k (about the same as the CTS-V). Besides camaro and Vette consumers are completley different. The vette is a Light wieght 2 seat all out sports car. The camaro is a heavy 2+2 sports coupe. Many Vette owners I have known throughout the years know that it is more than just HP that makes you go fast.

To all the "Camaro can't be priced the same as a Corvette" people....

What exactly would you consider "successful" for a limited-production, super-hi-power (<-assuming this) Z28?
You don't expect it to sell like the SS or V6, do you?

+1 Thus freeing GM to go all out on the Z/28 that can be design to beat (not compete if they do it) the GT-500. The Idea of GM makeing a Camaro that is intentionaly inferior to a mustang performace wise seems ludicrous (no offense intended). That defeats one of the main characteristics of the camaro.

+2 I don't know that I'd go so far as to say inferior, however, I think I understand what you're saying. I'm sure GM is going to give us everything they can give what they are going to be expecting the price point to be. If it exceeds the GT500, though, they better be delivering on more than just straightline 'Vette-type speed, IMVHO. A Camaro that expensive should have to be able to be on par with the base 'Vette, at the very least.

I honestly don't have a pulse on what the market types are for those who would consider buying a 'Vette if there is a Camaro model that gets too close, in terms of price. I think that most 'Vette owners are very brand loyal and don't really cross-shop. If they want a Camaro, they'll get a base or SS, not Z28, to put next to their base, Z06, or ZR1. I'm just trying to say that a person who is interested in Z28 isn't going to be as much interested in how close it comes to the 'Vette, per se. Sure, they'll consider whether the price is worth it, or if they could build an SS to at least match Z28, but won't jump Camaro Ship just because they can get a 'Vette for the same price, or similar. That's just me though; a humble gut feeling
