Its not surprising if they keep up with current production numbers. When they bring out a few more models that will slow up production some. You know the first GS/Z0? version is going to be high production that first year too.
What amazes me is people are still willing to pay $50,000 for a 4-5 year old Z06. Even the used Grand Sports 2-3 years old with in $10,000 of a
Yeah, even though the C7 is the latest and greatest, and it sure is, interesting how the C6 Z06 and GS's are keeping their values up. Course although the C6 is obsolete compared to the C7, it's still a fabulous street supercar in it's own right. Now many of us are deciding when not if we will be moving to a C7, while there are many others at a lower price point looking to scoop our well cared for and tastefully tricked out C6's. What's more interesting is, if the Porsche/BMW nose in the air crowd, start moving over to the C7 after the rave reviews. Maybe paying TWICE as much for comparable performance and recent major interior/ technical/ handling/ infotainment upgrades etc, will finally turn on the light bulb for them.

A fair number of them did that with the C5 and C6. You don't get much bad mouthing of Vettes when you are at a PCA or BMW driving school where sometimes a quarter of the cars present are Vettes. Getting their doors blown off on a regular basis made them believers.
Not sure where you saw a Canadian dealer dropping $2K but I highly doubt it's for a "new" Canadian car. I have one on order and talked to about 6 dealers in and around Toronto, all have used up their allotment of coupes for the year and don't expect new allotments till MY2015.
It's not like it is in the US, GM is only allowing a very small number of units into Canada (I was told somewhere around 300 coupes) for 2014. Further, if you did not sell 4 units in 2013 (I believe that was the threshold) then you're not even allowed to order a 2014.
I went to see one dealer a few weeks ago and he said no problem getting a "used" unit in from the US for $15K over MSRP!
With the constraints and all, the market for cars in Canada won't parallel that in the US, here they will maintain a much higher residual for longer and dealers will get MSRP clear into next year for any Z51. The flood of US cars into Canada will be the only factor affecting that.
Good things come to those who wait. Like Improved cars and bigger discounts. A year from now 5K off will be common on a base car like the Stingray and you wont be hearing about paint runs and mis aliened body panels etc.
