I am not a hater I like like the car I just think it is too much money. unless it performs even better than the PR that is out now.

if I had 75k to spend I would buy a Zr1 or GTr something that performs better and the depriciation is already out it.

then again 75k would be the very top of any budget I could rationalize and the depriciation that comes along with a car like that would be hard for me to handle. I mean my z06 I had dude paid 76,405 and then i come along 7k later and pay 46K. I lost 4k on that car when I sold it. the first owner lost 30k in two years.

I am sure I am 10k down on my Zl1 right now but not 30k ha ha.

people can tell themselvs a z28 won't deprciate but 2 years from now it will have it they produce enough volume.

and for all the LS7 hate???? I don't get that. it was one of my favorite engines in stock form I have ever owned. I really like that platfrom. heads, headers, cam this car will be rocket.
You make good points and give good examples, but there is another issue at work. A new issue.

We are at the end of a car-type production era. There is a convergence of environmental, mileage, and other government regulations conspiring to pressure building such a car out of existence. Note I did not say the performance envelope of this Z/28 will go out of existence, because it surely will not. I simply maintain this car as built will become the high-water mark for such high performance cars.

Ten or more years from now, if you want to own one of the last examples of an exclusive automotive generation. . . you will have to pay a premium to do so.
