Every year this pops up around the same time. new MY's will always bring some changes so technically you could never stop waiting. Just enjoy the wait and be happy with the car you purchased. Drive it like you stole it and hopefully you didn't pay above or at msrp! If there are new changes for 2013 you can always add them later.

Thanks for your input ! I paid invoice $52,800 , the dealer just wanted the holdback of $ 1700.00 msrp was $ 59,000 I believe ! Seemed like a good deal at the time,

although looking at what the used units are selling for makes me wonder ?

If you wait to have the latest and greatest available, you'll never buy another vehicle. I have a '10 Vert.

Now the 2011 has more "stuff" and 10 more HP (stock). That's nice, I have 18,000 miles on mine already, that's 18K of tire-smokin, neck-snapping ear-to-ear grins...

Just be patient while you're waiting, and enjoy the hell out of it when it arrives...

Welcome to the group!

 

You have a great car on order and will love the performance.

 

You can and should register the car when you take delivery. Its easy and good for the record.

Wow. I can't believe the new year is upon us so quickly.

 

Personally, I wouldn't hold-out expectations for any radical changes that aren't otherwise rooted in the mass-market flavors, particularly to the powertrain. Of course, that leaves room for certain feature option differences, but I'd expect them to continue to be fundamentally the same vehicles until the platform change cadence which, by all likelihood, will come for the 50th Anniversary 2014 MY.

The world ends in Dec. 2012 anyway might as well get this one and enjoy it. lol

 

 

That's awesome. So true. Look, here's the deal. Go ahead and get the 2012 because there is NO GUARANTEE that there will even be a 2013 MY. Plus, they might make a major change to something that you won't be happy with. There are no guarantees when it comes to this car, so take the 2012 and enjoy the shit out of it!!!! Then upgrade everything...

Buy a new one every year. It's only money. Heck, finance it and every year roll the loss into the next years loan. Then take out a home equity loan to finance the loss in 5 years, then start all over.

 

I think I heard its the American way. :hysterical:

Wondering, did you need to go to a lot of dealers before you found the one that was willing to price it at invoice? I've been to three dealers, but only now just engaged on price discussions. In the dealership, they suggested at going $1000 over invoice. Then today they left me a voicemail that was basically MSRP - pretty disappointing. Your thoughts?
