Local dealer will not honor supplier pricing but has almost 2 identical cars available except one is a 14' and other is a 15'

Both around 69-70K msrp. Shouldnt I be able to negotiate a good bit lower price on the 14' being that its already 1 year old with depreciation and warranty and the 15s are trickling in.

I wouldnt mind building a 2015 at a dealer that honors supplier pricing but what is the wait time? Just trying to figure out what the best thing to do it. Id like to drive one away this week but at the same time I dont want to pay close to MSRP for a 14' when I can get a discount somewhere else.

So in short: Should I be able to get a 69k 14' down to around 63k since its a 14'?

Are used 14s going to drop below supplier pricing anytime soon?

What is the build times on a 15' if I order one. Z51 2LT manual?

What are the chances of securing a dealer ordered 15' that just hits the lot that im looking for and not having to order one?

Thanks in advance for the help I'm new to the Corvette world but definitely looking forward to being apart of it.

According to IntelliChoice, a company that projects depreciation for leasing companies, the projected difference in value between a 4 year old C7 and a 5 year old C7 (ave. length of ownership) that were similiar in price when new will be $3,200. I would assume that gap would get smaller as more years go by after the first 5. If you plan on owning the car 5 years, you would need to buy the '14 for $3,200 less than the '15. Hope that helps.

That does help thank you. I'll keep that in consideration.

Now I just need to figure out if Im willing to wait and order a 15' at supplier pricing from a participating dealer to get more savings. We qualify for it through my wifes job and already got our code.

Welcome to our forum Stingrayfan56 and best of luck on your decision! You should definitely be able to get an existing '14 versus a '15 for a negotiated lower price and have the enjoyment of your Stingray now. Might also want to look at what is on the lots of our supporting vendors, some of whom have deeply discounted their remaining '14s. :cool:

Thank you!!

Most things I see are either a decked out 70k+ 3LT or a base one in the under 60k range.

I'm really set on a Z51 2LT Coupe 7 speed Manual. Kinda specific but its the perfect balance of features and budget for me.

I ordered a 2015 C7, exactly how I wanted, for the same price as an immediately available 2014 C7 that would have been a compromise. (Color, transmission, trim.) It's 'instant gratification' vs 'wait for it'. After about a month, my order is "queued for production". I anticipate delivery by the end of the year as I was told by a GM guru at Carlisle last weekend that there were no constraints for what I ordered. I am really looking forward to the new 8 speed automatic transmission and think it will be worth the wait.
Prices on 2014s should reduce as the year comes to a close. It's discount for compromise, if any. Either way, I don't think anyone will be disappointed.

Personally, go with someone who will give you supplier pricing if you qualify. I am usually a "buy and support local" kind of guy.... but not this time. I just couldn't handle the attitude of the local dealer. Because of this site I felt like I knew more about the Stingray than they did. If I was in your shoes, I would want someone to offer this advice....go with one of the top 10 dealers who will offer you supplier pricing for a 2015 and get it built exactly the way you want! I think you will be glad you did:) Good luck!
