Not looking for one but this came up and itís $65,000 out the door...includes tax, tag, and title.

2013 60th Anniversary Z with 3100 miles, 1 owner. Only thing I can find wrong with it: front chin spoiler/splitter is beat up on the front edge. Everything else is as new.

Good deal?

From the description, appears to be a good deal. ZR1ís can be found from $55k-$70k depending on mileage, year, and condition.

With that said, with that low of mileage, be aware that some of the seals may need attention but not the end of the world.

Here's how I approach it. You're getting a 3k mile car that is 5-6yrs old for 1/2 of what it stickered for. A chin spoiler is simple to replace in a matter of an hour, and is not that expensive.

There will undoubtedly be some people who come here on this thread and say they got this car/that car for $55-56k... and the bottom line is that their car wasn't a pristine, kept-in-a-bubble, 3k mile '13 Anniversary car. At the same time, if a buyer is trying to flip it in a year or two and make a profit, then it isn't a good deal. But I am not sure these will ever go up in value in my lifetime (I'm 50), so i couldn't care less if it makes me money down the road. It's not like it will drop $20k in value in 5 years from where it is now.

Taxes in that's a great deal, hopefully it has the performance package. What color combo?
I ordered my replacement splitter from rpi designs and after 2 months of telling me on many occasions it'll ship next week I finally canceled my order and bought one on ebay, it looks great! Oem would be ideal if you want the carbon color to match but if you're not looking very closely you won't be able to tell.

If the car checks-out, go for it !

Are you gonna drive it? Becaise if you are you may want one that already took the hit for miles and save 7 to 10k.

If not and you wont put 1k miles a year on and keep it for a while the deal is net zero imo. Meaning value will hang close to what you paid.

But again if you buying it to out 5 to 7k or more on it annually save your money and buy a cheaper one with 15 20k on it.

Yes, If I was in the market for another one, I would pursue this one.

It's the 60th anniversary car...white with the silver stripes, blue interior, chrome ZR! wheels.

Think I'm going to pass...not looking for a 3rd Vette, and I'm so close to getting the house paid off. Debt free sounds better than another toy.

Debt free will inevitably lead to another toy purchase . Ironic isn't it?

The taxes itself is worth 4-4500 dollars.

Could be more or less...depends on the taxing authority.

Not a bad deal at all. Make sure to take it up to 80mph to check for rotor imbalance. Barely a $60k car with taxes.

If the car checks out it's a great deal. If you are not going to buy the car can you share a link?

I did a lot of looking and price comparing on the 13's when I was searching for mine. $65k out the door isn't a bad deal at all.

I don't have a link for the car. Taxes are $3800, doc fee was $499.

Still debating...it's a good, clean, low mileage car. Evil side of me says go buy it...smart guy says wait a year and find a yellow one.
