New or used, please specify... If you say both, the people that are unhappy with the price are gonna go on a rant and discuss the G8 GT/GXP, I hope this thread stays away from that, because personally, I am getting tired of it...

If we are going to determine the value of the SS, a new 4door performance sedan, I don't understand comparing to used cars, 2 doors or 2 seaters. How about a list of new 4 door vehicles, that have equal content and have at least 415 hp and cost less than the $44,470 the SS will go for. List price to list price. I can't find any.

By the way Vauxhall will be offering a version of the Holden Commodore like the SS that will have a 6 speed option and the 576 hp LSA. It will start at about 84K US dollars.

A barely used CTS-V - even CPO.

btw, the "52k C7" is not the Vette we see in every picture. What we've been seeing is the "70k C7", and there's quite a big difference between the two. Though, I doubt that matters to anyone here since a lot of the argument is how the SS comes loaded, and nobody wants a loaded SS.

Uhhhh, try reading my post above.
I bought a brand new G37x sedan for $32k than runs 13's in the 1/4 mile and comfortably fits four adults for ski trips to the mountains.
You can take the the money saved and buy a 1000cc bike to park next to the G37x.


$hit, I'd rather buy a NO-option Corvette AND a cheap used Honda sedan for a combination that is worth the extra $12,000 over just a single SS Sedan.

A $84k Vauxhall, which is the 4 door version of the ZL1 Camaro, is a joke when we can simply buy the ZL1 Camaro here in the USA for $54k.
UHHH, so I guess you couldn't find one either.

Of course I read your post and that's why I posted. I don't want to purchase, maintain, house and insure two cars when one will suit my purpose. No matter how fast or cheap a Corvette it is it won't carry 4 people and if I need to carry 4 I don't want to drive around in a beater.
I'm not convinced a Camaro would offer the same comfort and ease of entry for those 4 people as the SS.
No matter what you purchased your G37X for , equipped like the SS it will list for more and have 87 fewer hp. I would expect the the SS to perform as well as the Infiniti.
The price is reasonable for what you get. I agree that not being able to spec out the car with parts that are already on the assembly line, manual trans, LSA, 4 wheel Brembos, etc and being forced to purchase options you might not want is a mistake and GM had done this before on several performance cars in the past.
The fact that you can buy a used car of similar or better performance for the same money or less is hardly unexpected, I would pick a C63, and next year you will be able to buy a used SS for less too.
I want to buy a new car, show me a better one at the same price.

A no-option Corvette provides everything you need.
I'm not a woman. So, I don't consider some leather on the dash as a "big difference".

Below are the only prices you need if you are a performance guy and you know your $hit. THe "factory" performance exhaust is a joke. Take that $1,000 and buy long tube headers and a dyno tune.

2014 Corvette BASE Price
MSRP $51,995
Dealer Invoice $47,405

2014 Corvette + Z51 (+ $2,548)
MSRP $54,795
Dealer Invoice $49,953

2014 Corvette Z51 + Magnetic Selective Ride Control (+$1,580) {+$4,128 total}
MSRP $56,590
Dealer Invoice $51,533
well, my brother is one of the more renowned LSX tuners in the country and ordered his with the performance exhaust, so it must be good for something.

and good luck buying long tube headers and a dyno tune for $1,000, hah.

$72k 2014 Audi S6
$55k used CTS-V
$52k *NEW* 2014 C7 Corvette
$40k *NEW* 2013 C6 Corvette
$40k New Q50

less than $40k
New G37
Used C6 ZO6 Corvette
Used S4
Used G8
Used C5


The list goes on and on.

At $45k, the SS Sedan is a $hitty choice.
You could buy 20 used 1994 Honda Accords,
over 45 used 1996 Ford Taurus with no engine,
2 C4 Corvettes,
5 Chevy Silverados,
The steering wheel of a Lexus LFA,
or 9 Lexus LFA keys...

I've run out of ideas to compare to the SS :biggrin: :dizzy:

No $hit.
We're tryring to have an intelligent conversation and a joke starts posting jokes.
That clown is carrying over her attitude from another thread.
"lol" at trying to have an intelligent conversation on an online forum. You'd have better luck at that in a Yahoo news comments section.

A used E60 M5 would be awesome but I haven't figured out what the cost of ownership will be like, just know that it's a high powered BMW that will cost a lot.

I have a co-worker trying to sell his E60 M5, I can't imagine how much the upkeep on that is. I've had a new M3 and a 330ci before, but those were under warranty. You're crazy if you buy any sort of newish BMW or higher-end vehicle without the means to maintain it if there is no warranty. Living in Houston I see lots of people driving around their bangle-butt 7 series with 22's, and every time it makes me think that it won't be long before that's a lawn ornament.
