Report: GM restricts the number of Camaro Z/28s by restricting the sale of 35 parts

Chevy is only interested in rolling out 500 Z/28s this year and only 2,500 for 2015. And they mean it. According to a report from Motor Trend, GM is restricting the sale of things like the 4-pot Brembo brakes offered on the car, the seats, front splitter, wheels, rear diff, and rear axles. Some parts like the small block 427 crate engine have been available for years and will continue to be available, but not unlike the company’s behavior following the release of the fourth generation Pontiac Trans Am, this Camaro will be kept as a pretty exclusive model, for now.

That is to say that there will likely be a market for aftermarket parts, and likely a more volatile black market for NOS (New Old Stock) parts for some time down the road. For now, the only way to get certain parts for the car will be to have forked over the $75,000 necessary to own the 505 horsepower fire breathing RWD coupe that has managed to give even the Nissan GT-R something to think about. So while one may be able to find neighborhoods full of “General Lees”, we will not likely see the day where Z/28s grow on trees.
