How would you build a Z28?

Start with a price point of $55-65K range, honestly that has to be addressed and even still that's pricey but affordable than the current Z/28. Keep some of the attributes the Z/28 has but scale it down. If Chevrolet can dedicate their effort in making a track ready car, they can make an affordable car. And no the 1LE isn't what I mean either.

You know what's awesome at 75mph with the windows down??? Windows the length of what's in a 4th gen...so much less wind noise in a 4th gen on the highway than in a 5th gen. So I'd like to see quarter windows that can roll down like the real old cars.

How is it not? It seems to fit what you say, other than not having a Z28 badge.

Had a 1LE already and it wasn't all that great to be honest. If it had a Z28 badge on it I would have traded it in regardless. Put a LS7 in the 1LE and I may change my mind but even still I want to see results. The 1LE felt loose, didnt feel grounded. I wasn't impressed.

So you want a Z/28 but don't want the premium it commands? An LS7 1LE would probably be slower than the ZL1 but the same price.

I want a Z28. Not a Z/28 to what we know it. The Z/28 shouldn't have been called that honestly. A premium of $75K and now will most likely be $100K value for a Camaro mind you is wrong. Did you pay premium for your Z28? Sounds like it was pretty damn affordable to me.

What should if have been called?

Did I pay a premium for the Z28? Of course not because GM didn't put anywhere near the effort into it. It's not even in the same universe as the 2014 Z/28. They didn't even put in the best N/A engine they had. Corvette was all they cared about and because of that, the Camaro died.


$75k is wrong to you but not to me. Everyone wants the Camaro to compete with the best cars in the world. Well you gotta pay to play.

Just an FYI but the Camaro emblem has already made an appearance on the 5th gen.

I think it can be made nice for a 6th gen as well. As far as removing the Bowtie... NEVER gonna happen. The Corvette is a Chevy but it's much more than that. It's a car that someone would shop but never would look at another GM car. The Camaro is really the working mans halo car. You might get smaller or differently designed Bowties but if you think they would ever remove them 100% your crazy.

That said whats with all the hate! lol

If you release a Camaro that has a price tag that the average/slight above average consumer can't buy how will it not die? The Z/28 is alive because of the other trims below it. The Camaro brand won't sustain just based off of Z/28's they don't make enough and if you make enough of them they WILL sit because its too expensive. I see alot of Z28s on the road. Alot of them. So while you say they didnt put much effort in it, you own one and many others do. Pay to play is that your ending statement? Well that doesn't apply. I've paid and still waiting....

There are plenty of Camaros of different price levels. The Z/28 has nothing to do with people buying V6s or SSs.

You see a lot of Z28s because they were the SSs of the 4th gen. They were nothing special. Yes I own one and accept what they are. Seems like you have them made out to be something they aren't.

The Camaro isn't going to live or die off the Z/28, just like the ZL1. It has the V6 SS to support it. I bet they sell every Z/28 they build.


You're waiting for something that will never come because even you don't know what you want in the car.

Guess ill be waiting then. In anycase if you want to further talk about it, PMs are available at your disposal. Your opinion or whatever you choose to call it won't sway my mind. I've given you enough attention as it is. Enjoy your Z28 the car in your mind GM didn't really put much effort in.

What I don't want on a 6th gen:
Less interior space.
Less truck \ cargo space.
Less interior hard plastic materials.

What I would like to see on a 6th gen:
More exterior color options (so tired of dark or darker).
More interior color options (so tired of charcoal and a little color of whatever).
Improved interior materials / finishes (less hard plastic, better quality leather and metal parts versus plastic parts).
More wheel choices in different sizes.

I would like to see better paint quality, specifically paint that is not so soft. I understand stringent federal regulations are a big part of that; but maybe switch to a ceramic based paint that has a harder clear coat.

I'm totally with you on this one. ~8 colors just doesn't cut it. The same old, same old black/white/red/silver/blue palette is just incredibly BORING. I mean, of course, they have to offer those colors, but for CRYIN' OUT LOUD, give us some more choices. I personally love the Lime Rock Green on the new Vette, and would like to see that offered on the Camaro.
