At 45K I think it will be priced appropriately, however I wouldn't be looking to buy one.

I fear that it'll start in the low 50k range though.

That's what I spent on my 2SS with taxes, lic, reg, etc etc...so, would have bought it if was out the same time as I bought last year. Now? Not trading up

at 45 even assuming you buy no extras with tax (7%) your looking at 48k. so really by the time its said and done it would run you 50k. I think it will have a MSRP of 49.99 personally plus tax title.

yes, I'd buy it at $45,000+... but I'm also the guy that would buy a Z06 instead of a Grand Sport because of the extra HP and the upgraded suspension/body tidbits

you gotta pay to play

Absolutely for $45, paid $36+ for my 2SS/RS. But I'm afraid it's going to be closer or slightly over $50 when it's all said and done. If it's out of my price range, I'm damn happy to be driving my 2010 CGM (at least until the kods are out of college)..

Haha, being in Canada, I already paid more than 45,000 (About 52,000 once you add it all up, actually) for my 2SS.

You guys need to step it up!

Im probably going to wait a year after it comes out somebody goes out and buys one and cant afford it then has to turn it back in on lease or something, then trade my SS for it. Although I like my ss not sure i want to part with it

Gents, here is why the z28 will be able to be bought for under 45K (if you can hold yourself to it). If you went and got the base model 1SS car, it ran right around 31K(before Taxes and fees). That is without upgrading anything like the stereo or doing anything special like the RS package or anything. So, if you were looking to buy a Base Model Z28, it could be safe to assume, that the car would cost GM about the same price to build except for the few special upgrades
i.e.
1 engine (which is pretty much already built, so there is no R&D cost, maybe just a slight tune to push closer to 600hp) + say $7000 over current LS3.
2 suspension, + $1500 more than current suspension if it is super Gucci compared to what is in the camaro now.
3 tires, + $1000 more than what is on there now for just bigger and badder.
4 brakes add another $1000.
5 now add $3000 more for a few things that I have not thought of because I don’t know much about cars. So that would add up to 44.5 or 45K.
These are obviously just rough guesses on my part, but if you’re not going for leather seats and all the other things that jack up the price on one of these cars pretty quickly, I would think you can get it for cheaper than you think.
Let’s not forget that this is the CAMARO5 website, so most people on here that could, would pull the trigger on buying a new Z28. GM is looking to grab a lot more people than that. If it is past 50K, I’ve got a feeling that a lot of the general public that is thinking muscle car, would end up going to the corvette if they are GM fans. I don’t know who said it before on this sight, but they made a great point of saying that Ford does not have Corvette competitor, so that is why the GT500 gets up there in price more.
Sorry for being so long winded, but I really don’t want this car to be over 45K because I really want it. Also, if I’m way off on anything please correct me. Thanks.

I agree with you totally. One flaw is tires, you got to factor in the current cost of what tires run, if your adding 1000 to the current 1000 dollar tires you have 2000 dollar tires. But I know what you mean. I think 39-41 is doable really. 5-7 for engine and 2-4 for everything else.

But I think you have people on here that want to buy things because it cost more. If there were two Z-28 models out there and they were Identical but one cost more, people would pay more just to say they did.

Before I pulled the trigger on my 10 SS, I got "buy in" from my wife for my next car to be the Z28 (or whatever they decide to call it) or a C7 Corvette when they are both on the market (I'm hoping by 2013).

So yeah, I WILL get a Z28 unless the C7 Corvette looks like the concept in Transformers....then I'm not sure. I still have a few years before I need to make my mind up.
