I鈥檝e been saying for a while that I think you鈥檙e going to see a lot of people come to their senses when FOMO wears off before their car shows up.

They will still eventually sell out but it鈥檚 not going to be at crazy ADM for all of the remaining cars like the dealerships were thinking.

The crap economy hit just at the wrong time.

A lot of the high ADM sales offerings also come with high down payments. Take me for example. I can afford to finance a Jailbreak with a high ADM. I absolutely won't do that, but if push comes to shove, I could swing the payments on a no money down, 7-8yr loan. What I can't do is easily afford the 20-30k down payment to cover the ADM plus the added markup and resulting high payment. With any other car, like the C8 I have on order, I can take that 20k and pay down the balance and reduce my payment and/or shorten the term, rather than string it out for 96 months and end up paying tens of thousands in added interest.

Redeyes are cool and all, but they're not worth $120k, $150k, or more.
To be honest if you鈥檙e buying a $100k car you should have $30k to put down. I totally get what you鈥檙e saying though about ADM because who wants to pay interest on ADM also.

Cars are a expense. Not a investment. Thought the only good reason to take out a loan for a expense was if you could write off the interest and the depreciation? How do you do that with a luxury car?
Most people don鈥檛 and that鈥檚 why you鈥檙e seeing the market indicators right now.

Luxury items are tanking right now. The RV industry, motorcycles and ATV鈥檚 are way down. It鈥檚 just showing up in the used car market which is then followed by new cars.

I was surprised to read that the biggest hit on resale right now is the Tesla.

I鈥檓 a little sick of hearing about the covid scamdemic. If the black ghost wasn鈥檛 just a Challenger with stickers, i might order one at $500k adm just so the kids don鈥檛 get so much.
Buy them all and crush all but one of them. It might be worth something that way ;)

There must be a lot of poor people here because they keep saying people with money don鈥檛 care about interest rates. That鈥檚 not true!. Everybody cares about interest rates. Actually affects wealthy people just as much if not more. The more money and debt we have the more interest rates affect it. Duh
Oh wait, you think rich people don鈥檛 have any debt. Lol. Yes, just like rich countries and corporations have no debt 馃槀馃ぃ馃槀馃ぃ
Plenty of people pay cash so I wouldn鈥檛 care.

See the economy is rollin, plenty of people pay in cash. Financing won鈥檛 affect the Hellcats. Lol. This will be a very interesting thread to look back at a year from now. See what all the experts have to say about the cash buyers then.
No one said Hellcats are all bought in cash so it won鈥檛 matter. I was replying to someone saying everyone is bailing on the expensive cars because of financing.

There will be people bailing on orders and the car market is collapsing so if you have cash on hand this could be a great buying opportunity.

Even at that rate most people will be paying around $300 a month in interest and that鈥檚 with $20k down.

More than $20k in interest over the life of the loan.
That's not what I was talking about. You were talking about guaranteed returns. So where are these places?馃ぃ
CD鈥檚 even on short terms are hitting 5.25%. There was a bank last week giving 4.75% for new customers savings accounts both 100% safe.

I guess we have a different idea of amazing returns. No one is getting rich off of 4% in a savings account
You said amazing guaranteed returns which is much different than just an amazing return. 4.75% - 5% is an amazing guaranteed return with zero risk. Probably about as good as most people on this forum have seen in their investment life.

Now a savings account is an investment account? Okay dude have a good day
No I said 5% CD鈥檚 available which is an investment account. A 4.75% savings account Is an excellent way to park money in uncertain times waiting for a better play. Probably the best you鈥檝e seen in your lifetime.

If you go to any reputable money managers 5% is what they realistically use for their long term examples.

Obviously when we don鈥檛 have an idiot in the Whitehouse you will do much better but they will always show you examples with the good and the bad. It鈥檚 not all roses every year unless you鈥檙e just a Monday morning quarterback internet investor.

There's always idiots in Washington. None of them care about the people.

I was not arguing about 4% being good/bad. :rolleyes:
No doubt about that unfortunately. Some idiots have a bigger impact than other idiots with policy that has a bigger affect.
Yes my bad I suppose.....I just think a greedy dealer can make a nice profit with out charging 40 over and sticker on some one who wants a dream car. And if no one gives them their damned greedy ass 40 over they never get it.....but you are correct. I stand to be corrected. I apologize for not thinking all the way thru before making that post.
It鈥檚 just not happening. The dealerships want to make it seem like everything is going for massive adm鈥檚 but they鈥檙e not.

Go to hp locator and punch in any of the sticker cars and if you k ow how many total were produced you will see almost none have sold. The dealerships think they are holding gold mines and they are trying desperately to convince the buying public but it鈥檚 not working.

Believe me they don鈥檛 want to hold onto them for any longer than they have to because there are carrying costs every month.
What are you, 12?
At least get sausage or pepperoni on it.
I'll take pineapple and bacon
I was with you until you said pineapple. That鈥檚 illegal.
