If you’re in the market for a Camaro Z/28, you might want to know about Chevrolet’s recent discount for the track-focused muscle car. Chevy is slicing the Z/28’s sticker for both the 2014 and 2015 model years. According to GM Authority, 2015 models get a $2,000 discount, while 2014 models can be had for $4,000 less. This means the cars now cost $70,350 and $68,305, respectively.

The discount is reportedly available for nearly 600 Camaro Z/28s parked in GM dealerships, two dozen of which are 2014 vehicles.

You’d better hurry though, discounts for both models are only valid through June 1st, which means you have less than a week to book one. What’s more, Chevy will only accept bank checks for this offer. No finance and no lease!

As a brief reminder, the Camaro Z/28 was launched for the 2014 model year as the most track-focused version of the fifth-gen pony car. Production was limited to only 500 units for the 2014 model year. For 2015, the Z/28s final year on the market, Chevy plans to assemble 2,500 examples.

The company has yet to confirm whether the newly released sixth-gen Camaro will spawn a Z/28 variant, but the nameplate’s return is more than likely. However, a new Z/28 might not arrive until 2017.

Why it matters

It’s always great news to be able to buy a high-performance car and save at least a couple thousand bucks in the process, but this discount is a bit odd, especially in the case of the 2014 model year car. That’s because Chevy announced that all 500 units of the 2014 Camaro Z/28 had been spoken for in the second quarter of 2014, which leads me to believe it wasn’t the customers who ordered the cars, but the dealers. Knowing how some dealers usually charge premiums for limited-run models, I’m guessing some of them simply couldn’t sell all Z/28s, which likely had already spent several months in the parking lot by now.

It’s also surprising because the Z/28, much like the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, promised to become a hot seller. As it turns out, 2,500 units for the 2015 model year might be more than what the market can handle. And that’s a shame, because the Camaro Z/28 is a brilliant enthusiast’s car. It’s not exactly affordable, though.
