He's just trying to move his C7 inventory. Probably ordered too many and now that it's December he's beginning to sweat.

I agree not to believe this guy. That said, I'm also not sure that the big dealers you mentioned really "know nothing". I would expect pricing is not finalized yet and no one has final information, but I also suspect the big fish dealer people with connections probably have not heard ball park pricing and maybe even timelines. Those select few just aren't going to be releasing confidential information on public forums (or really at all).

So a plant running under 30% capacity will build a car so expensive that once the initial gotta have it is over will drop said capacity to near zero.

Right.

this is the same guy who leaked the c8 front fenders way before anyone knew anything ...... sooooo...

( he did think the front fenders were the rear so maybe he doesn't know what he is talking about! ; )

He IS very confused about the ZR1 deal so maybe he got his wires crossed with the C8 info too. $ 149k base C8 it will die a slow and painful death...they can park all the allocations at Mary's house!

This is the same guy who leaked them, and couldn't even tell which end of the car they were from.

The 992 is a $120K+ car now (before you fatten it up with options). If the C8 comes in around that number. someone is going to step in and fill that $70-$120K slot with a competent sports car.

I can't believe there's a few people who buy into the notion that the next gen Vette will be 2 to 3 times the current starting price. In a way it's good as they'll be pleasantly surprised when it's around 60k and they can save six figures lol.

Starting around 12:30 on the video. I hope he doesn't really know what he's talking about

I wish I could laugh with you, but lost too much money on these money makers. I know, I'm doing it wrong (buy new and sell them after they depreciated), but who has patience to hold them for 50 years? Mind you, I'm not bitter, did get a lot of enjoyment out of them.
