Super Stock-Long Term Value

705 25
Debating on selling my SS and getting a WB Shaker. I realize the SS's may continue to hold value much better than a SP, but I am trying to simplify my life, with more manageable toys. Any thoughts on the long term SS values? I realize it's a prediction, not a certain.

Long term value, it all depends on your definition of what "long term" is. In 50 years, both the SP and the SS will be worth good money if kept in great original condition. The SS will obviously be worth more. The biggest difference you'll see in value will be in what I call the mid term. This starts around 5 years after the cars go out of production to about 10-15 years. During this period, most SPs are bargain bin worthless. They're the choice car for street thugs, young 20-somethings, and are about as common as a sunburn at the beach. That being said, they'll still worth more than a 5.7L or an SXT. The reason for the devaluation is mostly due to their sheer production numbers. With lots of cars, you'll get lots of used ones, and lots of those used ones will be ragged out during this time period. It'll drag the market for all SPs down. Those that survive in near new quality to the long term, those will be worth money.

With the SS, it has strong short term value... and in some cases, might even be flippable on day 1 for a profit. Short term is the period starting at delivery to within 5 years of model closeout. This is the period where the cars are still desirable. For a few years... say 2026 or so, there will still be a strong seller's market for late model Hellcats as people who wanted one couldn't get one, and they'll be looking for good used ones. But, after the short term ends, it's a bit uncertain as to what the SS will do. Yes, it's the most rare Hellcat submodel, but most people don't even know an SS exists. They will obviously offer a premium over an SP, but I don't know if there will be a special Super Stock market in the mid term. At worst, they'll mirror the RE/REWB market... whatever that turns out to be. I just think it'll be a hard sell to try and get a premium over a REWB. I don't think the differences warrant a premium. I could be wrong though!

Super Stocks will always be big money car much sooner, low volume Demon like and legendary.

I think the Shakers may have a great following when they’re gone as well but it may take a long time before they have significant value over new price. If you follow 70s Trans Ams you’ll know what I mean. They made a huge amount worth 3-5x as the same year Z28 and essentially same car.

I really wanted to order a SS in 23 but couldn't find an allocation for a decent ADM. I would pay 10k over for an SS all day long. Now I have the RE order in Im happy with that. They are all awesome cars.
If I was you, and could afford to keep the SS long term, I would do that. If it brings your life stress to owe a lot, I get that too. If the stress outweighs the joy you get from it, then get the SP. I think the Shaker is a great choice, long term. I drove a Scat for a bit and it was a blast.
Only you can answer that question though.

In my case, I don't stress about the payment so much... but I don't like high payments as a matter of principle. However, when I pick this Redeye up, it's going to have a high payment until I refinance it. It's going to take me 3-4 months to get my cash hoard back to where it is supposed to be. Once that happens, I'll go in and chunk down half the car and refinance it at the credit union. I can't really do that at buying time due to the fact that I'm upside down on the C8. If It doesn't sell by then, I'll have to trade it in and take a Chrysler Capital loan... and some Preparation H. For me, the car is more important than the payment. When the car is paid off, I'd rather have a paid off 1 of 1 REWB than a Scat Pack any day ;)
