Chevrolet may have struck gold with the Camaro Z/28. Not only is it a great car to drive, it's also proving to be a hot seller. A rumor has emerged that the brand has already fulfilled all the orders for the planned 500-car production run.

Don't worry, though. If you want a Z/28 in your garage, Chevy plans to start building a second production order of 2,500 or more cars for the 2015 model year, according to Autoguide. However, it'll be a few months before those will start arriving at dealers. In the meantime, you still might be able to get your hands on the $75,000 track-biased Camaro. While all 500 cars were spoken for, some were ordered by dealers to just show off the sports coupe on their showroom floors, according to Road and Track. You might be able to wheel and deal to get one of them.

We've contacted Chevy for confirmation of the rumor and will update this story with more information when we hear back.

      And very few of these cars will turn a wheel in anger.

      "Too heavy to be a track car" -sarcastic throwback to the 'armchair physicists' of 2007-2009. Good job Chevy.

        It was too heavy. That's why they reduced the weight on this. Btw: great car and great for GM for saying "screw it...forget price lets just build this to be the best it can be"

          ^ Incorrect. The Z-28 weighs 100lbs less than a SS Camaro.

        305 section tires on all 4 wheels = what weight?

      Wasn't aware there were 500 people left on the planet that had mullets. Must be a Def Leppard reunion tour coming up.

        I'm a HUGE Mustang fan. I prefer Ford all day over Chevy, but this z28... is to DROOL for. How can any righteous auto enthusiast hate on this car? If anything, this is the competition Ford needs to make something even BETTER!

      Hey, if people want to spend $75 k on a car that is virtually indistinguishable from every other Camaro and isn't as fast as a Corvette Stingray, whatever...

        @marv.shocker
        Glad you know absolutely nothing about this car. Keep up the informed posts!

        Since you prefer the Corvette it seems, you can say that the people that wouldn't be able to tell this apart from a $23k V6 model are the same people that probably wouldn't have been able to tell the difference between a $50k base C6 and a $120k ZR1.

        Did you skip Michael Harley's article? The one where he has almost nothing but praise for the Z28?

      epic fail on those tail lights. Will skip the camaro until they fix them

        @yo
        Pretty sure you couldn't afford this car to begin with, but please continue to blame the taillights for why you don't own one.

      Build and sell another 1,500 and the recall related deductions from Q1 earnings will be paid for!

      Sold out to dealers you mean. This happens with every limited run production car. News story says they are sold out when in reality the dealers have fulfilled all of their allocations. I'm sure you can find some that are unspoken for.

      'Some' were forced on dealers who might not have wanted the $75K car but that's ok…other dealers will snap them up for 4-5K above MSRP and then try to sell them to idiots who cannot wait for $10K over MSRP.
