1. Do I have to be a divorced orthodontic going through a mid-live crisis to buy a Porsche?
2. or if my money is very tide can I settle for a base Z28 with no options for an invoice price of $20.000 and when confronted with a mid life crisis order it with the SS package for about $3000 more??
CAN SOMEONE HELP US TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS GOING ON HERE???
|Pricing for the Chevrolet base Camaro commences at $16,840, the z28 enters at $21,165, the SS model is by special order only, and costs approximately $4,000 to $7,000 more than the z28.|
|The "base" 1998 Camaro Z28: ...with the new LS1 engine checking in at $22,000.|

Thanks for the reply. If the following statement is true:
Why can't Ford or Chevy build a car of the same quality/dynamics/etc..? Because we won't buy it. A $35K ford focus?
Don't we pay alot more for different cars?
To the quality shortcuts you mentioned ? At ford/Gm does competition play a major role at the end product? or it is what you described? If true where this path is going to lead to?
NOTE: There is no wrong no right no smart no whatever answers to this topic; as long as it respects other member's opinion.
Thank you again Schilke
