C7 prices?
Sold my 07Z with 1year left on the warranty. Sold a bunch of projects and (no surprise) started looking again. I was pleasantly surprised to find that 2015 C7ís with 15k miles are going at not that much more that what I got for the Z06. 2013 Grand sports with low miles are even cheaper than the basic C7.

Iím thinking C7ís will take a good hit when the C8 comes out and people start trading up.

Iím seeing 2015ís just over $40k with 15k miles. If the take a 10% hit in a year that would be pretty reasonable ( yes Iím cheap). No way Iíd get another c6z, but maybe a low mile GS or ZR1 in a year if prices tank.

What is a C8 going to sell for? If it's huge money compared to a C7 then maybe it won't be so much of a trade up play?

Good question, I haven’t kept up with prices so just googled it

“Corvette Stingray's base price is around $55,500
Corvette Grand Sport starts at around $65,500
Corvette Z06 starts at $79,495
Corvette ZR1, which has a starting price around $119,000.”

“Hagerty reports that the C8 will start in the $60,000 to $70,000 range, where it'll be equipped with a new version of the current Corvette's naturally aspirated LT1 6.2-liter V-8. “

So the z06 version could be close to $100k, maybe?

It is a good time to wait and see.

ďAccording to, there are around 9,000 ĎVettes in inventory at the moment awaiting buyers.ď

GM is sending out links/vids hyping the C8 release. C7 depreciation going up....

If I was in the market, I'd for sure be looking into picking up a manual 2019 C7 of some flavor. With the inventory surplus, the rumors that the C8 will be auto only, and the last year for the front engined Vette, seems like a nice car to pick up at a discount that may also wind up being a collector's item. Only time will tell!

I saw a certified 2014 with something like 5000 miles the other day for $42000. That would be in the right $ region for me and you can extend the warranty!

But, Iím not too serious right now. Maybe in a year or two.

I'd love to have a 2014 in that beautiful Lime Rock Green with the M7 transmission, but that would just be a further diversion of funds away from my C3. Maybe I'll find a nice Hot Wheels version for my desk at work. :-)
