Are the 4th gens going to loose value w/ the 5th gens coming out?

So as is typical with a major design change in cars the older body styles loose value.

How much do you think the 4th gen camaro's will loose their value? For instance a 2002 SS now worth 12-15k in perfect condition.

Also wont we be seeing current camaro owners selling their 4th gens and buying the 5th gens?


Just a thought.

10% decrease maybe. They have depreciated quite a bit already.

yea, the market will probably get flooded with them, so that will cause their value to go down. you know, the whole supply and demand thing. Also, whenever a new body style vehicle comes out, the previous iterations drop in value considerably.

Yeah price will drop on them. So if you dont want to put up with that then just save the car and wait 30 years and it will be worth a lot.

Well I wouldn't go that far but yeah I agree - the market always discounts ahead of time. Wicked deals out there - just go to the classifieds section of LS1tech.com...

I would go that far. I've got a lot of friends trying to sell their 4th gens (both LTX and LSX) and they've had to drop the prices considerably to sell them. or part them out to make somewhat of a gain.

on a side note, the chrysler dealer offered me 4k wholesale for my 94Z with a blown transmission if I signed on a 31k chally R/T (with less power and a lot more weight than my Z) lol

Well then do me a favor and keep your eyes open for a 2002 SE modded or not for under 15K and I'm a buyer.

well, a true SE would be able to retain its value. there's a couple guys in my local club that have one. doubt they plan on selling tho. but if the offer is right.

Ithink the value may have gone down abit. I think when the real world figures come out on the SS for 35plusk$ . The SS 2000-2002 model will hold its value just fine. The f5 may be able to run high 12s and so does the 2000-2002 SS.

BUt viewpoint is tilted...

Well part of the reason 4th gens have lost value has been the economy, people just aren't buying sports cars right now. But the 5th gen will surely play it's part is affecting 4th gen sales as well. It will be a great time for anyone looking for a top quality 4th gen.

Does a bear $h!t in the woods? All cars lose value. Then slowly the desireable clean survivors come back.

They haven't dropped in price that much, at least not for like 01-02 SS's. They have already gone down in price by about $1,000 or so but I don't see a HUGE drop off because if you think about it, they are already 7 years or more older so they have gone down in value over those years. The recession and unemployment rate doesn't help the prices either. If you were think about selling your 4th gen and getting a fifth gen, you pry should have done that a year or two ago imo.

As everyone has stated...yea...it's going to go down. In my opinion...it's a bitter-sweet thing.

But as with the other generations, there will always be people (hopefully) who will restore, modify, and burn rubber in then for generations.

I kinda disagree with some of you. I think with the new camaro coming out it has put a spotlight on all camaros right now. i dont see the new model affecting the 4th gens that much. Yea there will be some dumping their 4th gens right now and may seem to be flooded but some like me will take advantage of this oppertunity and swipe up a nice 4th gen. I drove from Ga. to Va. on fri to get my new whip. 2000 red on black SS, MN6, leather, T-tops(which the new camaro doesnt have and I really wanted) with a bunch of goodies(nothing over the top) and 21K miles. She is MINT. Already ordered a new set of door speakers(blew drivers side on the way back-too excited?) and some other things. Believe me, im as happy as someone that just bought a 2010 but cost me less than half.

Ah mine is stock except for flowmasters and I am not gonna give it away. IT has been babied. I will just keep it and someone else can buy my ordered ss. The reality is my new one will be here soon and my 98 is still not sold. If I cant sell it im not gonna be able to get the new one. I have been tryin to stay positive, but theres not much time left and I need the downpayment money.

4th Gen value's are down the crapper. The only 4th gens that are safe are WS6 and special edition cars.

Cant wait for M6 LS1 cars to get below 5k.

you almost have the break this conversation into a few groups
93-97 LT1s have no value, I couldn't see one going for more than 5K and I live in CA. LT1 have dropped the most due to the more popular LS1, higher mileage, and a PITA to work on.
98-00 LS1 can be had for under 10K but usually not as low as 6K unless it has really high mileage
01-02 have the more desirable engine, usually lower miles and are probably selling between 10-15K in CA. 15K being SSs and WS6 vehicles. I have a 02 Z28 and wouldn't sell mine for anything less than 10K, I would rather trade it in.

LS1s are definitely the best bang for the buck of almost any car out there. I can't see the new camaro affecting the price too much, the economy has done enough.

I really loved the third gen look and was going to buy one (Knight Rider look) The fourth gen design turned me off of the Camaro for years. The Pontiac Trans-Am still looked OK however still not as good as the 3rd gen's.. I don't understand how this body shape lasted for as long as it did without a re-design?
