The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 has received very positive reviews so far, but we had no idea of how successful the car is from a sales perspective. Well, it appears that all 2014 model year Camaro Z/28s are already spoken for.
GM plans to build 500 units a year of the Z/28, which is priced from $75,000. However, this year’s planned production has already been sold, according to an Auto Guide report citing Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser. Don’t despair though: he said Chevrolet won’t constrain production and will produce to demand.
Since demand is high, Oppenheiser said the company targets a production of 2,500 Z/28s for the 2015 model year, although more will be made if there are customers for them. GM will open order books for the next production run in the next four to six weeks.
According to Oppenheiser, the Camaro Z/28 targets cars like the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R and its track-focused nature means it is not meant to be a daily driver. GM stripped as much content as possible to save weight, with air conditioning being an optional feature and the car featuring a single standard speaker to comply with safety regulations that require the turn signal tick to play over an audio system.
