Camaro Z/28 Marketplace Find is A Fast Car Priced to Sell Even Faster

2015 Camaro Z/28 Wash

Z/28 is the rarest of the 5th generation Camaro, so serious buyers might want to jump on this one.

While the big power of the 6th generation Camaro ZL1 tends to overshadow the 5th generation Z/28, there is no question that as naturally aspirated muscle cars go, the LS7-powered Camaro was one of the greatest all-around performance cars of the modern era. Even though the 5th gen ZL1 packed more power, the Z/28’s track-inspired design made it an instant legend in the history of the Camaro.

Unfortunately, while the 2014 and 2015 Camaro Z/28 was an incredible performance machine, it was also incredibly expensive, carrying a price tag of more than $75,000. As a result, sales and production numbers were fairly low, making these cars hard to find in today’s used car market. However, “onesloGTO” posted a 2015 Z/28 for sale in the LS1Tech Marketplace and it is priced to move, so if you are serious about buying a 5th gen LS7 Camaro, now is your time.

The Introduction

When the OP posted his 2015 Camaro Z/28 for sale, he offered up the following information.

For Sale or Trade
2015 Camaro Z28
30,xxx miles
6 Speed M/T
7.0L LS7 427 505HP
Recaro Seats

Great car built for the track!! Only 1,801 ever made.
A/C and Radio
Never Tracked, Carbon Ceramic Brakes are still like new!

The mileage might be a little higher than some prospective buyers might want to see, but this car is “loaded”, meaning that is has air-conditioning, and, mileage aside, it appears to be in perfect condition. Shy of a different color, there isn’t much more than a potential buyer could want in a 5th gen Z/28.

5th Gen Z/28 Production Numbers

The 5th generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 was only offered for the 2014 and 2015 model years, with a total of 1,801 units produced over those two years. 1,292 of those were built for 2015 and of those, 520 were painted black and equipped with air-conditioning like the car listed for sale in the marketplace. Black cars from 2015 with air-conditioning are technically the most-common of the 5th generation Z/28, but again, we are talking about 520 cars out of a total production run of 1,801. Plus, these cars are sought after and, in most cases, cherished by owners, so it is not every day that one comes up for sale.

The Z/28 is the rarest of the modern Camaro packages, which when coupled with the performance capabilities leads to a high resale value for a four-year-old Chevy. Kelley Blue Book puts the private party value of this car around $39,600, with a range that reaches up to $42,187. That makes the list price of $39,500 a pretty good deal and when you factor in the rarity of this car, this is a deal that a serious buyer may want to jump on before it is gone.

A lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years, Patrick Rall is highly experienced in the automotive world. He has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now auto journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

“Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500,” says Rall. “He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car: a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16. Meanwhile, I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

“Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group,” adds Rall. “While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

“Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never ‘work’ a day in your life. I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

“My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

“Being based on Detroit, I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.”
