That's some time to wait.
But at least then you can get an RC for a great price, one that has had all it's bugs worked out without you having to do all the back and forth required to have it all dealt with.

Yeah But I still enjoy the Vette in the mean time. I cannot see buying expensive (ie$40k+) cars new. The depreciation percentage is low but in real dollars is crazy. I would bet an RC would depreciate 1/3 of its value in three years, putting in the mid to late thirties and that is assuming only 33% depreciation. Could be more because it's a less desirable coupe.

I am driving a $70,200 MSRP Corvette with 16K on it I paid $33.5K for. This car will cost me about $1600 a year in depreciation to drive while I wait.

Not bad for $133 a month. Especially considering a new same equiped Vette costs $1100 a month in the first year depreciation and that is pretty much a 60 month payment as well Crazy IMO to go there.

Being a cash buyer I have to wait for my price to come to me. ..... I waited a much longer time to buy the Corvette I wanted in 08, A couple years for an RC is nothing LOL Plus a lot can change in cars in the next two to three years,

Yeah I am LOL. For dealers. But I never was one to be "the first on the block" with anything.

Patience pays off handsomely whether buying stock or cars, Your price will always come to you eventually. Just wait and enjoy what you have until then. And never stop learning about the car you want. Stay in the game. Let the early adopters beta test the new computer SW in today's cars.
