GM Restricts Sales of Z/28 Parts

By | April 30, 2014
There's no question that the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 made some waves when it debuted at the New York Auto Show. However, many customers will be disappointed when they can't purchase the model. Chevrolet will be producing a limited number of the sports car--just 500 for this model year and 2,500 for the 2015 model year. While this may help make the Z/28 a hot collectible, it also creates a problem. Those who want the Z/28 may try to replicate it using specific parts. To remedy this, General Motors has restricted the sale of specific parts that make the Z/28 different from the other Camaro models in the lineup. A total of 35 parts have been restricted, including brakes, wheels, differentials, seats, grilles, spoilers, fascias, and more.
Customers who have purchased one of the limited Z/28 models can rest easy. Only those individuals who own the model can purchase the replacement parts. GM is doing its best to keep the $75,000-plus Camaro Z/28 from being replicated, but we expect that some may be able to get around the restrictions and try to recreate the model. How successful they will be isn't clear, but we hope the precautions that the automaker has taken hold up. Source: GM Authority
