Heh. If you'd have told me 10 years ago that I'd dump 33K on a Subaru, I'd have broke a rib laughing.

You'll never find one at a stealership for that price.

That's pretty high unless your dealer is willing to accept less through some bargaining.

Track pack is 3K - so about 69K for a loaded coupe.

Lots of people are ordering at MSRP already. Ford has already stated that they will build as many as they can sell, this is not a limited production car. There will however be those dealerships that try and charge adm's but those dealers wont be selling many GT500's.

Yeah but you can get a track pack with recaros for $60k. That's all you really need.

To be honest, I was scared of it. If I wiped it out, I lose my job.

You cant get the track pack without the svtpp, this will bring the price up to $63k. Still a great price for the amount of car you get.

For $38.5k and performance oriented American car; a Z06 or genII Viper GTS are both going to be faster than a GT500. Unless you really want a Mustang.

Sure, but now we're comparing used cars to new cars which is a bit disingenious at best. Hell, let's muddy the waters even more and start throwing modifications in the mix!

No, but seriously, I think for $55k, I'd rather have a new 'vette GS. I'm not a big fan of the ZL1 or the GT500 - too much money for a pony car.

Well he was comparing used ZO6s/Vipers to a 2008 GT500 (used) so it's a valid comparison. An LS7 ZO6 or a 2nd gen GTS will outperform a 2007-2009 GT500 stock for stock.
