    I think that sub 60k sounds interesting... Take a guess how many sub 60k c8s will be
    Yeah but msrp is basically the same thing as an adm on a gt500.

    Before 6mos of first ones hitting the lot these will be selling below msrp

    Have to factor in the discounts corvettes always get. Youll be able to get the Z51 for waaaay under what youll get a base GT500 for in the real world.

    You know why they dont? Because they care nothing about the consumer.
    Notice their stock has went down the shitter last 10 years. That's what you get when you dont think about the consumers.
    I see a trend...

    Yeah Ford has really disappointed me thus far with everything dealing with this car. Marketing, option prices, golden ticket b.s. etc etc etc. And to add, go on the Ford website and try to build a GT500. It doesn't even exist on there! And the order banks are open! Go to the Chevrolet site, and you can sit there for hours building every fricken different vette and color your heart desires. Heck, i was blown away at the options for that car you can play with on that site...and I'm not a Vette guy!

    I just hope Ford is patroling some boards and makes some knee jerk improvements. Because there are some let down people out there right now. And so far this GT500 thing is becoming more of a joke compared to other stuff out there and for the price considering ADMs, 10k stripe packages, the list goes on. I hate hearing myself say that!

    Yup, that's the difference between a failing company and a progressive company. When you dont give a shit about your customers, that's when you lose. Ford is losing my business by being careless.
    Ford made the dealership their customers, not the consumers and that's where they ****ed up.
    When 95% of dealers are ignorant and greedy, that doesn't equal long term customers or sales.

    Just talked to the local Chevrolet dealer. $5k deposits for reserving an order. NO ADM, at least through this dealer, but it was the 1st one i contacted. He said they are still waiting for the options pricing.

    Ford doesn’t have the motivation or the capital (think joint venture with VW) to invest in high-performance vehicles. GM spent a bundle just on the preview announcement.

    Think hybrids and EV. Ford will continue to milk the GT (Shelby) moniker until the company is absorbed by another. It’s only value is it’s truck brand. The rest of the product line is a “me too” needed to support its bloated culture.

    You're comparing the selling and availability of the base vette to a "less" available gt500.

    Comparisons should be to mustang gt using the analogies above.

    I’m sorry that vette does not look good at all. GT500 looks aggressive and better

    I watch this guy on You Tube once in awhile. He's one of the top Chevrolet salesman in the country. He mentions in the below video that his dealership will have a couple of hundred allocations and he still has around 100 left. These things should be easy to get at a good price. I like the GT500 better, but would never pay the price for one with a markup. The Vette will appeal to a lot of people and they should be everywhere which will be cool to see.

    I already made my decision. I already ordered one just like this. Base, Iconic Silver, Painted roof, stripes, and tech package. NO ADM..
