Default Under MSRP?

Hey all, just wondering if anyone has taken delivery of their 2019 ZR1 for less than MSRP. If so, what was the nature of the discount - trade / lease incentive, military, supplier...?

The only discount I know of is by using a GM card. I saved $5000 on my ZR1.

No official discounts as of yet. Your best chance is approaching a General Manager with cash in hand on a car that may not be configured with the most popular options. You may find a car that was special ordered and the buyer walked for one reason or another. You may also find a car that sat at the dealer too long for one reason or another. I'm also aware of a few used cars that GM used for marketing purposes that you could probably purchase at a discount.

Most people buy these cars not because they can get a discount, but because they want them. My advice is if you want one, decide on the color/configuration that you would be happy with and start searching for the car or an allocation.

Just saw Boynton Beach in your profile, I frequent Boynton Beach, PM me for pointers...

Got my $700 costco cash card. Same as on my '18 GMC a couple of years ago. Costco auto program works for the ZR1 but may have to contact the program folks personally. I did.

Many here think so. Many said in very strong voice that GM will not build it past March 31, 2019. We know now that is incorrect. I see TPW of 4/29/2019 already. We also know that GM will NOT stop at 2,000 units. Many here were very vocal about that, also.

I said it from the start that the C7 ZR1 will be a 3 years model. That has not been proven yet.

Damn, I didn't even think about trying that. I was so happy with the $5000 off from my GM card that I didn't even think about Costco.

. This subject has been beaten to death on this site before, but to summarize, opinions vary from one and done to a 3 yr run. GM has not released any “official” information on the subject. To my knowledge there is no official info on a 2020 C7 Corvette period. My own opinion is “a one year model”.. but that there is a possibility that there may be a few more 2019 ZR1’s built than were originally planned. (200 per month) by extending the build period a bit. Before I get jumped for talking out of my a**, I want to repeat all of what I said is speculation on my part. If anyone really knows the answer to your question GM and its dealer network is better at keeping secrets than the CIA..

Yeah, I got my doubts about that one, too.

There seems to be a lot of 'cross-over' references to vettes other than ZR1's.

Allow me to clarify: As I pursued the Costco auto program I ran into some mis-information/or posturing (if you will) by a well known dealer in corvettes on this forum. The Costco folks I contacted said the ZR1 was included in the program. The dealer was adamant about refusing to include it. Evidently, the costco auto program folks I talked with backed off. Why? I don't know. However, I did get the $700 cash card. Perhaps the Costco program folks are allowing the dealers, or certain dealers, to cherry pick which vehicles they wish to honor in the program. Sucks true. But what are you going to do??

I talked with the owner of the Dealership I purchased my ZR1 from and he claimed that GM did not rebate anything to him for Costco's Auto Program. He offers the discounts Costco advertises as part of the program just to drive traffic to his dealership. When you do you paperwork at the Dealership you have to sign a form that lists all the incentives and my form had a code that was equal to NO INCENTIVES!!

I guess if they are going to make ZR1's for 3 years and 6000 of them...someone will get one at 15% off MSRP...not me...I could not wait that long!!!
