I'm curious to see what people are paying for their Stingrays.

MSRP for my car was $77,225. I negotiated the price to $71,500 plus fees. A few dealers were asking $10,000 over MSRP. My dealer says they only ask over MSRP for the coupes.

2015 Z51 Coupe ordered. Now with 8/11 TPW. Small dealer with short allocation. $2K off. Could have done a bit better, $3K off elsewhere.. but he is local and has a great 22 year senior Corvette mechanic. By the time I would have arranged to pick up or take Museum Delivery (I've had 2 already, great event but wasn't planning on doing it this time around) would have been back at $2K anyway......since I was #1 on list and wanted my order in on the first consensus, I accepted the discount after a bit of haggling (they offered $1K) and then not knowing the price. But that certainly worked out well!

This is an interesting thread! A few other data points which could help people understand the situation is: date of purchase, type of car (Z51 or base, coupe or convertible), and %of discount from MSRP (that is, for a $60,000 MSRP where you got $3,000 off, for example, that would be a 5% discount [3,000/60,000 expressed as a percentage]).

Thank you for that information, Mark. I was under the impression that there was a 10% profit built in for dealers, and your post has confirmed that for me.

The dealer still made about $3000 on my deal and all they did was process the paperwork. Then again, 4.4% is pretty slim margin, I wouldn't own a business with margins as slim as a car dealer!

Ah, yes, I was ignoring the holdback. So their profits, if sold at MSRP, are close to 14.5%?

Yep, it's called making hay while the sun shines. Remember too that all of the top dealers weathered the lean times where they barely made holdback to get to the point they had enough allocation for the C7.

There are too many variables to list, as to what a buyer might pay a dealer for a new car. The simplest question would be; what percentage, off of MSRP, did you pay? Some people pay over MSRP!!!
I paid 1.4% off MSRP. Did I get a good deal? Not really, but I am very happy with my purchase. Was the dealer happy with his sale? You bet he was, but I really don't care.
Don't sign the paperwork. Nobody is twisting your arm! A deal is a deal.

Paid MSRP. Dealer was $5000-$7000 over MSRP if you bought from stock.

US buyers are so lucky to pay under MSRP ! In Canada, will be paying MSRP and still waiting. Will be exactly ONE year of waiting by the time I get my car. This is the longest I have ever waited for a car compared to the wait time of a Porsche of 2 to 3 months. The C7 is a rarity right now in Vancouver,BC. The Z06 will be a collectible in Canada.

I paid $2,750 Canadian off MSRP, military and loyalty discounts.

I just purchased a new Chevy pick up as a tow vehicle to get the vette to the track. I got over $7,000 of MSRP with the discounts and deals Chevy has on right now.

Paid $62k for mine. I got Supplier Pricing and they honored my original deal.

MSRP after March's price increase was around $72k.
