    I’ve watched a few GT500’s on eBay, and I’m a bit surprised that just 1 out of 3 that have been listed, went a bit over msrp. What gives? Considering the cars listed are scheduled for mid November and none have been delivered.
    I’m comparing the to the demons. The first 3-5 demons listed on eBay did pretty good, averaging in the 130k’s.
    Could it be the lack of marketing/hype?

    eBay needs training from Ford dealiers on how to gouge the customer.

    eBay doesn't allow for presale of cars. I wouldn't consider what it sold for on ebay accurate either because you never know if the buyer actually went through with the deal

    I’m aware of their policy but it only works if it gets reported. While I understand most deals happen outside of eBay, demon auctions were getting a lot of traffic.
    I personally bought at least 3 demons off of eBay and sold one. All for well over msrp $25k-40k.

    Not really. These cars were pre-ordered. I was acting as a broker.

    I bought 27 Demons in total but can’t remember the exact amount that were bought on eBay. I’m pretty sure it was only 3.

    I'd say lack of demand.

    I on the other hand brokered 8 Demons ALL on eBay and only had one buyer back out. The exposure is second to none. I have a C8 on order for Feb delivery ONLY so I can flip it and put the profits toward a down payment on a GT500! I am paying MSRP for the Vette and it will be going on eBay. However, I am not on any list for the GT500. Anyone know of any dealers not marking them up and may have an allocation? Please PM me if so. Just thought I’d ask as I have no clue what the preproduction market is for these cars. As Demons got closer to production the prices started to rise quickly. They are still pretty good. Thanks in advance!

    Pretty sure @13COBRA can get a GT500, and it’s maybe 1,100 over sticker.


    Pick your poison.
