Dealers taking orders for Z/28?

Just notice that the dealership I got my car from has an ad on their website that they are now taking orders for the Z/28. Seems odd that GM would allow them to do this on a car that has not even been announced yet. Has anyone else seen this at their dealer?

Scroll down a little to see the ad.

That dealer's doing a favor for customers then! I wonder what they tell customers about the car then. How do you describe a car you're taking deposits for that doesn't exist?

I did an online chat with that dealer asking them what they know. They said the car is in production along with the convertible ,but they couldn't tell me any specs or when I would see it. They are happy to take my down payment though.

What a freak'en joke!

I guess if some dumb ass is willing to give money down on a car that has no spec's and no production date then it's not the dealers fault.

At least they didn't give me some BS about when it was going to be built or what spec's it will have. They just said they didn't have that info yet.

i guess if you plan to get a Z28 no matter what then you wont need specs, most deposits are refundable and it might ensure that your one of the first to get one. If you have the money its no big deal, its not like the banks are giving any more than 1% interest to hold your money. I also read in car mag. that MSRP will not be more than a standard corvette, cant upstage chevys top sports car. Dealer might tack on something though.

I just requested more information.

"What are the specs, MSRP etc? As far as I know GM has not announced a Z28 or High performance version of the camaro. But you may know something the rest of us don't so please enlighten us on camaro 5. Especially those that are wanting the unannounced car."

I'm pretty sure Chevy dealers were taking deposits on the Camaro after it was shown as a concept at the Detroit Auto Show a couple of years ago. So, this really shouldn't shock anyone.This is a very similiar situation to when dealers were taking deposits back in 2007. The 2006 Camaro Concept and 201? Camaro Z28 are both cars that everyone knew and (or) know were inevitable to the auto market. Everyone knew the Camaro concept would get the green light, and the Z28 would've already if not for GM's financial woes, but I think most of us anticipate ther Z28 to be a near reality!

Hello bob. My name is Emily how can I help you?
bob says:
if i place an order for a z/28 when is the earliest i can take delivery?
Maribel N. says:
At this point I do have a list of those who are wanting the 2011 Z28
Maribel N. says:
Once the car goes into production the wait period should be about 6 weeks.
bob says:
when will it go into production?
Maribel N. says:
We've been advised about 1 year from now
bob says:
what is the msrp?
Maribel N. says:
we will not know untill the vehicle come out
bob says:
I'm not sure I understand. You are taking orders on a car that doesn't exist?
Maribel N. says:
that is correct because when the car does come out it will go to the people have been waiting, it is coming out
bob says:
OK... I think I'll just wait until I can negotiate a price. Thanks for your time Emily....
Maribel N. says:
your welcome have a good evening

I am split between sreaming; yes it is coming and no; they are just people trying to get peoples' hopes up and are liars. The thing that makes me say that this is legit is the idea that how can a dealership con you into making a desposit on a car that will never hit the production line and run away with your money?

I would be very careful about placing downpayments with dealerships on a car that is not 110% confirmed for build let alone delivery. With so many dealers just closing down, you never know when that particular dealer is going to shut down without giving you back your down payment.

If you want to have one of the first Z/28's when they become available, put a $500 deposit down at a reputable dealer. Do it with the owner of the dealership, that way when the Z comes out you would have dealt with someone who still works there and there will be no problems.

You know the sad part here...if I was in a spot of financial security and could afford to take the risk I would in a heartbeat put my money down to be one of the first...sadly I live the life of the average joe making payments on a car he loves that DOES exist

Yup that's me! I disagree that courtesy doesn't know anything. They have some employees (Dave Blankinship & and few others) that are very knowledgeable. They were some of the most knowledgeable of any dealer I talked to back when I was ordering last March. I know they were taking preorders for the vert before it's production date was announced but at least the car had actually been announced!
