Each planned unit for the 2014 model year Camaro Z/28 is spoken for.
The company plans to built 500 for the 2014 model year and each already have homes according to Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser. But that doesn’t mean Chevrolet will constrain production of the $75,000 muscle car. Oppenheiser said the company plans to produce to demand and projects that it will build 2,500 for the 2015 model year, although more will be made if there are customers for them. General Motors will open its order books for the next production run in the next four to six weeks.
Oppenheiser said during an interview at the Monticello Motor Club in New York that the Z28 Camaro is painting a target on cars like the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R. It uses a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission and 7.0-liter V8 along with a litany of other track-focused performance enhancements.
Chevrolet cautions potential customers that the Z/28 is not meant to be a daily driver. The company stripped as much content as possible in order to save weight. For example, air conditioning is optional and the car comes standard with a single speaker to comply with safety regulations requiring the turn signal tick to play over an audio system.
