Lotsa talk about the new C7 being a reasonably priced super car and I agree that it is: reasonably priced AND a super car.

Giving my following question your best guess, or thought, what do you suggest would be the going price for a 2 year old $65k (when new) 2014 C7, with mileage in the 10k - 20k range?

I read that the residual est. value for this car after three years to be 67.5% and around 50% after five years. For a supercar that's pretty super IMHO. Enjoy it.

That's some hit.
No, it's not, it's perfectly in line with it's competition. Here are some real world examples.

2011 Audi R8 4.2, New $110,000, Used w/15000 miles $74,000 OR 67%
2011 Porsche 911 S, New $90,000 Used w/15000 miles $60,000 OR 67%

Hell, I'm looking at less than 1 year old 2013 Porsche Boxsters that had an $82,000 MSRP sitting on dealer lots with less than 5000 miles on them for $69,000.

I never meant to say that it was out of the ordinary. It's still a lot of money to lose.

The trick is not to pay $65,000 for the $65,000 car in the first place, that's why I'm waiting for Supplier pricing.........

Well let's see go back in time buy '67 big block for $6k, store it until today open barn door sell for $500k. :D

But reality is cars are not bought for investments, they are just expensive adult toys. :)

Waiting for 3-5k off is not worth the wait Seriously. I tell people that if that's what your waiting for you cannot afford it.

Actually, I'm waiting for closer to $6500 off and it has nothing to do with being able to afford it. I waited a year before I bought my K1600GTL and saved $10K over those who had to be the first kids on the block, I did the same for my SRT and last 3 Porsche's. I've saved enough over the last 10 years to pay for a C7 simply because I'm willing to wait 6 - 12 months.

Thanks guys for the thoughts and comments.

The reason I asked is because my plan is to get a brand new C7 when I turn 65 (note my handle). For shitzngiggles, and in thinking about the car's depreciation, I was toying -JUST TOYING- with a plan B: getting a '14 or '15 in '16.

But that would negate my original heartfelt desire to get a brand spanking new Vette, put together exactly how I want it, and taking the Museum Delivery option taboot. Decisions, decisions: ain't they great!

Same here on the new Camaro waited just 8 months, the first ones paid $5,000 over sticker and sticker if you were lucky. Waiting I paid $100 over invoice and got $750 from USAA so ended up $650 under invoice.

Should have bought them all used if you want to save $ and now you could have saved enough for two new C7s!

Actually, I've owned 8 Porsches and only bought one new. The SRT was a dealer demo as were both my Lightnings. One of my 2 Vettes was used. If the right C7 comes up on the used market in the spring I may go that route but with the value of the C7 and anticipated Supplier pricing the few thousand I might save buying used may not be worth it.
