-What can one expect the from the gt350's as far as holding their resale value, we know the r's will retain their value fairly well but what of little brother?

- Will there be a decent demand for these cars for the near future, let's say 5 years out and still bringing 30k?

I'm planning on using it as a semi-daily driver myself, 5-6k per year. I know it'll drop, I'm betting it's value will maintain itself well to other cars in it's class.

Personal opinion but I do not, now, think these will hold their values as well as I originally thought. Production numbers are higher than I expected and the run is longer as well. 2018 brings direct injection, GT500, among other things. MSRP or lower will be the norm after recall is fully addressed and more 17's make their way in. Used market will see these breaking into high-mid 40's before you know it. Hopefully I am wrong. ;-)

Ive owned two GT500's and this production series on the GT350 is very similiar. The GT500 in 05-06 was going to be a two year run. Dealers were getting $20-30000 over MSRP .... I was one of the lucky dealer employees to use one of our allocations in Aug of 06 for only $3000 over .... at that time a incredible price. 7 years later the car is still in production. Longer production = s' less holding value

I agree switch, this run of gt350's is too high to maintain their value like the 13'/14' GT500's. In fact, I agree with your entire statement.
I'm still leaning towards a MY18' of a 350, but that GT500 is sure sweet, however i'm going to use either purchase as a fairweather daily driver, so...

Tony

both cars were 07's .... Never owned a newer model with the high tech gadgets.

My last 07 that was traded in on my GT350 was a go fast car ..... 750 hp ..... drag slicks ..... rear locker .... 1 piece drive shaft etc

Problem is I couldnt drive the car everyday, I couldnt take a chance on taking it out of town ( rain showers were very very dangerous)

Soooooo, I got my Gt350 !!

The town I live in has 3, GT500's and a KR. 2 of the 3 have the 800 horse Super Snake package on them. I've had my car a year and I've only seen one other GT350. The 2018's are only getting new colors, no other upgrades. People who say the car is going to drop off in value has not driven one. Yes, if you paid 5, 7, even 15 over sticker, you car is going to drop in value because you paid way to much but that was the only way you were getting one. We recently sold another one at the dealership I work at for 10 over, so the demand is still there.
