    I absolutely love this car, but would never up my depreciation by paying over MSRP. I will wait till they get more widely distributed. I feel bad for the previous gen owners, the resale on those must have tanked.

    It's phenomenal performance value for the money but IMO the best is yet to come as to me this launch version is a little half-baked. Hopefully in the coming years they will refresh the exterior styling and maybe change the hideous steering wheel.

    I'm sure manual C7s resale will hold as there is still sizable amount of people looking for them as it's last of its kind.

    I just hope they dont go the way of the GTR, where it started off as a killer at the price point but cranked up the price every year.

    I think the price will go up for sure.

    Agree. R8 was also guilty of this, non?

    Have they not already?

    There was a mint condition Z06, low KM (22,000), no accidents, heads sorted for $39,000.

    I believe he didn't get what he wanted so he stored it for the winter.

    I’d say C6Z have bottomed and are holding pretty steady these days.

    That would be awesome. I thought they were still 50-55k

    Seriously? That seems way too cheap for a Z unless it was a 2006.

    I work for GM, can confirm the price will go up every year.
    They started with such a low starting price to build hype, which worked exactly as planned.

    Another fun fact, Canada is the cheapest place on earth to buy a C8.

    It's GM doing something to prevent Canadian owners from scalping their cars to USA, or elsewhere?

    Yes as soon as a car crosses the border GM gets notified thanks to the OnStar GPS chips that are in the vehicles, at that point the buyer of the car gets black listed for life from ever purchasing a GM product again.
    Also if a dealer suspects a scalper is buying the vehicle they have every right to refuse to sell to them.

    You cross the border you get blacklisted?

    Crossing the border only triggers a notification, it's up to GM to investigate if the vehicle has been sold and black list.
    I do think it's beneficial to Canadians that they are taking action on this, as exporting these vehicles out of the country only makes it harder for legitimate Canadian enthusiasts to get their hands on these cars.

    GM can prevent a dealer from selling a car to a customer?
