I doubt the owner will get $60k for a 9 year old 'vette.

I would love to go through the museum delivery process (that's been a wish since I can remember) but unless I know I am going to keep the Vette I order for a very long time, I'm going to look for one that has exactly what I want (color, interior, options, etc.) that is a couple years old. It might take awhile (searched 2 years for my GS) but I'd rather keep my money for other things while still getting the vehicle I want.

My wife's '16 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited - bought brand new because most used Jeeps I could find had high mileage, were out of warranty & were within a few thousand of a brand new one. I also knew she'd be keeping it for quite some time & they retain their value very well so if she does want to sell it some day for something else, the hit won't be that bad at all.
We just bought a new Wrangler JL for those same reasons. It's our first Jeep and I had no idea how well they hold value.

I've been buying new trucks for over 30 years because I want a new vehicle, and the trade-in value is what it is. It's just the cost of driving a new vehicle.

Trade in a Ford or Chevy, and what they offer you is always an insult. When trading in a Chevy years ago, the salesman told me there are tons of used ones available, and not that many people want them. The price reflects that.

But the trade-in value on Toyota trucks is unbelievable. When they give me the number, the first thing that pops in my mind is "Where do I sign?" I'm not kidding about this. The difference is YUGE. I don't put enough miles on them for durability to matter, but the trade-in value sure made a believer out of me.

The last I knew the T. Tacoma was the most popular pick-up in the world. The market seems to bear that out.

This is my 5th Wrangler going back to my first in 94 -they hold their value.

$60k for the ZR1 is a good price with the low miles. If I would have been able to find an Inferno Orange ZR1 I would have purchased it regardless of cost.

For a car that will out perform nearly everything from Porche, Ferrari, etc., 60K is mind blowingly cheap.

Amen brother. Throw on some drag radials and you've got a 10 second car.

You can get a year old or so Z06 with a warranty for that kind of money and it will outperform the C6 ZR1.....Seen brand spanking new Z06's for low 70's.

9 model year old car vs new one for about the same price, I know which one I would choose.

.
The simple reason for that is more people find the C6 ZR1 desirable than the C7 Z06. Supply & demand.

60K for that car is an awesome deal if it checks out mechanically. The problem is that people just don't realize what a great deal it really is for what you get.

Correct sir. Thats why they've made 35K (and counting) C7 ZO6's.
Only 4684 C6 ZR1's TOTAL.
Thats why I chose the C6.
--I've seen C7 ZO6's in the high $50K range already...

And, if memory serves:

A few years ago, "Corvette" mag rated the C6 ZR1 as still "King of the Hill." Considering all performance aspects, it edged out the C7 Z06.
