Default New ZR1 available in Grapevine Texas / Dallas Area

Guys,
I just got a call a few minutes from a local dealer who has a Black 3ZR Auto. Deal fell through., I bought a ZR1 last week so don't need it. they do MSRP. PM me is if you want more details. i had a few feelers out.

Doe's anyone know the policy about this ? I hate to mention a vendors name because i don't know who supports the forum or who doesn't. On the other hand I would like fellow forum members to know about a car at MSRP.

I don't think it matters... Just say the dealers name. I'm sure someone would be interested in a black ZR1

I agree. I think there are only a limited # of buyers who want to pay $135K for a corvette. Also talking to the finance guy when I bought mine he said a lot of people fall out at the last minute. Lot of $$. More than my first house. I think the dealers trying to sell for over MSRP will not be selling many more. too many "deals" becoming available. I paid MSRP for an early C7 in 2014 , paid MSRP for C7 ZO6 in 15, Paid MSRP for ZR1 a few weeks ago. My opinion is MSRP lets the dealer make a very nice profit. Asking over MSRP is simply greedy. My 2 cents.

I've been debating picking one up and in my research this past week, I have come across a lot of unallocated vehicles that have been delivered to dealers. Most are automatics, but there are manuals as well.

I think we are at the point in the manufacturing cycle where those that pre-ordered have received theirs and now the demand has softened.

When the C8 gets announced, it will likely hurt C7 values, including the ZR1.

My 2018 Z06 3LZ Z07 value has tanked in one year, even with the discount I got off MSRP the depreciation hit is absurd.

I agree 100 percent about the depreciation. I bought the ZR1 because I enjoy 1/2 mile and 1 mile events. I wanted a car that will perform well with no Non- GM mods. Just sold my modified ZO6. Loads of fun but I wanted to get something that can be serviced and worked on at the dealer . can be driven to events, no trailer, etc. I think the ZR1 is a good fit for me. My buddies will be dragging my a** at the track but that's OK. Last event 1 buddy lifted the heads and the other smoked a transmission. Sometimes nice to have a stock car. LOL

C8 is going to be way more expensive than a C7 so I doubt very much if it's going to hurt the value at all.

Base C8 price will be near base C7. Not much of a variance expected.

Hard to believe sitting when they will sell at list or less. Good looking car.

Here's another thing; most Vette buyers aren't in the same financial realm as buyers of exotics, who can afford to absorb, and probably care less about the huge depreciation hit. They buy what they want and if they don't like it, they dump it at the McLaren/Porsche/Ferrari/Lambo/etc dealership and drive out with something else.

There's a bunch of ZR1's now showing up at exotic dealerships as trade-ins...

wrong, base model won’t be much more than the C7. Many C7 owners not interested in ME DCT ETC.

At least a handful, where just a short while ago there were none anywhere to be found.

Perhaps a 'bunch' was a bit of exaggeration.

A bunch of Fleet cars recently hit the Used car market. New actually for sale sitting there are hard to tell as many listed on Dealer sites are all ready sold. Didn't used to be that way
