    Been looking at gt500 and gt350 (17,18) seems to me that the market for the 350 seem to be all over the place. Any advice if I go the 350 route instead of 500

    Well, there is no 2017/18 GT500.

    What are you looking for? Color, options, miles, price range?

    Yea wonder if the 2020 gt500 is throwing th . Market off. Recaro and velocity blue or orange I saw a 17 with 13000 miles but they wanted 49k which is high when I can get a 18 for 51k with 2000 miles

    Market is weird for the GT350. It's a bit in limbo and hasn't settled yet. Won't help that colder weather is coming so that might drag it down further. Look for a 2017 and up since those have the track package and I recommend getting one with Recaros, too.

    Assuming low mileage, let's say under 10k, 45k would be a great deal right now. Otherwise, you can find them a dime a dozen for the high 40s.

    Then pick up the 2018 with 2k miles. Done.

    The GT500 isn't even in your realm of possibility.

    I wish I could do the gt500 maybe in a few years when i get my pay increase but even then i always say i cant buy brand new and with 30000 markups for gt500 that is crazy. I priced mine out it was still 76000. I will just wait in about 6 years and see what happens then. I have been looking at the 13/14 gt500 so who knows so many nice cars out there smh lol

    Why not get a 13/14 gt500? Way more power than the 350. I was originally in same boat as you, and went with the 13 gt500.

    How do you like the 13? I need to go test drive one. I already drove a 350 and it was fun.

    It was no comparison... The 13 GT500 felt like it had double the power of the 350.

    IRS vs solid axle, supercharger torque vs flat plane RPM.........two totally different purpose built cars. Both cars can be had for under $50k with decent miles, pick your poison.

    Then again, go grab a 18 GT and toss on a blower with the supporting mods on it and make stupid power behind a 10 speed auto.

    Lately I've been looking pretty hard at trying to get a GT350 in about 18 months. I'm hoping the market settles down by then and am hoping that the 2020 GT500 will drive the price lower on the GT350's. I'm looking to get one in the 40K price range ( hopefully lower ) and I have seen some now in that range with varying mileage but I hope that price range becomes more common in the next 18 months when I'm ready to get one

    I don't think the release of the 2020 gt500 will have any impact on the price of the 350. Two vastly different cars.

    I know they are vastly different. What I'm referring to is if interest in GT350's drop due to the GT500 being out because of that the GT350 price would in turn drop. There are probably a lot of people who would be happy with either and if the GT500 pull more demand or interest the remaining GT350's may dip in price if they sit longer unsold used or new. Only time well tell. Just what I'm hoping for at this point.

    GT350s will go down because they are in their four and a half year of production.
