I have setup a mandatory rule for myself (like a fundamental principle of car value): every car that cost me $100k+ (not including TTL) need to be a luxury brand.

In the future taking into inflation into consideration, I may increase that limit but $100k is the number for me at this moment.

i would have to agree with furious. make sure he locks you into a 23 allocation first. msrp or less again? get it in writing from him.
then ask away on your price. funny the wording the dealer said to you. a secure client that needs it. nobody needs a car that expensive. he wants it!
i think you’re in the driver seat on this. if the guy balks, we’ll then you still have your ss.
Good perspective and great point you got there...

I am a sucker for principle and 2023MY will be over $100k for the same car. I will definitely take your rule under advisement.

Well Folks!
As expected, the low-supply is triggering the demand. my dealer just called and offering me $100k for my SS, according to them... they have a secure client that needs it.
Seems like they are calculating the offer based off of the MSRP + taxes fee I spent... interesting but my baby-girl is not for sale, However $110k might do the trick LOL.
I am not asking y'all to make a decision for me but What would you do in this situation?

Pass. If 110 is your number, tell them. Olof they don’t want it than oh well.

How is this even a question? You've driven the car less than 400 miles. If you're looking to invest actually invest in things that will make you real money. Either drive the damn car or sell it.

I also believe this has less to do with it being a SS than just a hellcat in general. Lots of people are getting calls to sell their fairly new cars back to dealerships for more than they paid. Been going on for over a year now, so nothing new.

I would probably want a known allocation lock up on a 23 before I would sell. There may be opportunities to make a buck yourself and move up to MY23. TRX guys have had the best opportunity to do it. To gamble that I'd be without a car I'd need a big premium.
Bingo. This is likely the route I would take, if I'm ok with not having a SS. The MY23 is going to be a big gamble though. Can you even get a car you want (exact specs, etc.) and what will the ADM be if you can find one available.

Just a thought I picked mine up August 11th and will not drive it to work (we've had HCs, SPs and Rams stolen out of our parking lot, plus a rash of converter thefts lately) but I still have 1078 miles on mine so far.

Got the SS on 09/07 and as of today Its sitting at 375, so I drive about 20 mile/day.. looks like you do the same...yours is 22 mile/day (give or take).
interesting... we are moving at the same pace.
