Default Price Increase Announced On Corvettes!

GM has just announced a price increase on all 2009 Corvettes. This price will effect any Corvette that is not already in dealers stock.

This price increase is $1,520 across the board.

So, below are the new base prices before destination:

Coupe - $48,565
Convertible - $53,220
Z06 - $73,925
ZR1 - $103,970

The good new is that Kerbeck has over 85 2009 Corvettes in stock at the old price!

Does this mean there is no price-protection on orders already in the system?

I was at status code 3000 back on 09/12.

A price increase isn't a welcome move but all things considered I'm not surprised.

If you have a car on order and your dealer ordered it as a sold unit (SRE) than you will be price protected. If you put a deposit on a car that the dealer has coming in that was ordered for stock (TRE) than you will not be protected.

Dose that mean that our used Corvettes are worth more money?

A clear message that GM intends to play the same game with the Corvette that it does with , or did with, SUVs, that is msrps WAY above actual market selling price.

It's easier to fool the marks if they think they are getting MORE off msrp. Also, from marketing 101 the more a thing costs the more most people think it's worth.

Wonder what they have planned for Wednesday Oct 1?

Rebates?

Extension of employee pricing another month?

0% financing?

Of course all of the above would be great
