I have a 21 Redeye - all loaded up ... was planning to keep.
Should I order another one (or two) for investment/resale purposes? I don't care how long it takes, 3-4+ months to get here. 6% under invoice at Koons or 5% at Cummins are awfully tempting.
Are any of you doing this as well?
If the purchase of one or even two more REs does not represent more than say 5% of your investment holdings then maybe.
While you don't care how long the new car or cars take to get to you when do you think you can sell and realize a profit? And bear in mind a sale at a profit is a taxable event.
Until you sell you have to keep the cars pretty nicely garaged and protected against rodent damage. They should be insured. Maybe you can add the cars to your homeowners policy but then you can't drive them just treat them like what they have become: A collector item like a painting, statue, etc. If you can't put the cars under your home owners policy and must buy car insurance I think this requires the cars be registered. They will not be driven so any issues they might manifest if used while under warranty will be lying in wait for the next owner. Sure he can just buy the car(s) and park teh car(s) and wait for another (hopefully) good time to sell. It is like an old Chinese vase. Initially it starts out as just vessel to hold water. Years later it is priceless
The car(s) is (are) not that liquid. You can't just get online and issue a sell order and receive confirmation of the sale in a few minutes.
There is also the problem of it there is a bump in price and you decide it is time to realized gains you put the car(s) up for sale at the same time as other speculators who want the big pay off put their cars up for sale.
