ctann Posted April 25, 2008 Report Share Posted April 25, 2008 Hi all, Well, it looks like timing is perfect for buying a GT500. Gas prices are soaring, money is tight, and inventories are building... I have already been offered a GT500 @ MSRP, as well as Roushes @ MSRP-6k, and good deals on Saleens too... So how does this translate to the GT500KR? There are a _lot_ of highpo Fords out there right now, if you add all the GT500's, Saleens and Roushes up. And there are a limited number of collectors that are going to throw down a large chunk of change for what is really not *all* that collectable (compare to Saleen E's for example, with only a few hundred made each year). There is a lot of choice out there, and it looks like the market is reaching saturation. Now, I don't want to argue MSRP or "worth" here, so lets not dispute the GT500KR MSRP - it is what it is. I guess what I am really trying to figure out, is just what a dealer is going to sell a GT500KR for - i.e. what sort of ADM they're really going to get. The "standard" number that gets thrown around is $180k. I think we can all agree that that is laughable - there may be a handfull of wealthy collectors willing to put down that sort of money, but I bet there are far fewer than 1000 (or 1500 if you add the 2009 production in). SO, the lovely GT500KR is going to sit on the floor, acting as a very expensive advertisment... I personally think that Ford ate most of the Dealer's ADM with the high MSRP, and even at an ADM of only $20k, the car is expensive. So what do people think, are delaers going to let these go with an ADM of $20k once the dust settles? Or perhaps even less? I'm willing to buy one at MSRP, although that will be tough. Every dollar over MSRP makes it a little less likely that I will buy one, and a little more likely I'll get a "regular" GT500. As I said, this has been done to death, but given the current market for the cars (every Ford dealer in my town has at least a couple of GT500s on the lot, with more on the way), I think it is worth chatting about again...
