    You know, there are a lot of assumptions, based on what GM has said, that a base Code 130R would start at ~ $20K. What if they had a more realistic starting price of $25K, is it worth building?

    That would step right into Camaro pricing as of current prices. I'd rather fork over some more bucks for the bigger car unless 130r had alot of standard goodies and power for the price.

    I forget, is 130r Alpha based?

    Yeah, if it only comes with the 2.0T.

    Also, that should be with every available option.

    Re: If the BASE Code 130R starts at $25K, should Chevy still build it?

    $25K is too high. My issue is more with the price of cars in general these days, everything seems so outrageously priced, I don't understand how people can truly afford to buy new without being up to their eyeballs in debt. Much above $20K loses my interest real fast.

    Ditto.
    $25K with a great engine, yes.

    Of course, it does beg the question: where does the new Camaro start? 28K? And is that too much? 'Cause we all know that Ford is going to be selling a brand spankin' new Mustang with a turbo 4 (and a modern rear suspension, finally) for probably under $25K.

    I voted "I don't know". It would all depend largely on the standard performance and equipment features. If $25K only gets only bare bones cloth seats, steel wheels and plastic hubcaps and skinny tires & no performance motor then $25K is way to much. If it comes standard with great performance 2.0L Turbo on base model , my link, 6 speed manual alloy wheels and sticky rubber then 25K is fine. Extra bling, leather, sunroof, stabiltracK, brings it close to $30K.

    Depends on the equipment.

    Re: If the BASE Code 130R starts at $25K, should Chevy still build it?

    I'm going to say that the only way $25,000 makes sense is with the 2.0T as the Focus ST base price is $24,495 with 250 hp and a VW GTi is in the same price bracket. Those are closer competitors in many ways the the Suburu BRX/Scion as (I presume) the Code's upright styling will give it a small-but-usable rear seat. If a $25,000 Code comes with the 1.4T, I can't see a market. Perhaps the 1.6T at 200 hp. But, I'm guessing with the ATS already certified with the 2.0T, it would be simpler and cheaper to go with that mill.

    25K is a little high. It would be great to see something performance minded slot under the Camaro. The price should also slot under the Camaro.

    04 GTO 09 G8GT & 15 MustangGT?

    Re: If the BASE Code 130R starts at $25K, should Chevy still build it?

    As others have said too high if it comes with say a 200 HP 2.5 na 4 banger or something equivalent.

    Base price with that engine should be more around $22K WITH DESTINATION.

    For $25K with destination it should have the turbo 4 with at least 250 HP. If not why not just go Alpha Camaro.
