2016 Shelby GT350 future value

I'm thinking about selling a couple of my fastbacks to buy the new shelby gt350..(I still have my r model clone and a few other fastbacks)..do you guys think this car will hold its value or should I keep my fastbacks?...I noticed the Boss 302 have went down a little on value but the other 350s that came out a few years ago have went up in value ..I'm not doing this from an investment stand point, I just don't want to lose my *** later down the road...I'm not a new car buying type of person matter of fact I have never bought a brand new car accept a Honda for my wife..what have you gt500 owners seen with the values or your cars?...Thanks for your opinions...

It's a crap shoot. I can tell you, you'll buy it because you like it. You should. But I
understand what you're thinking because I think we all do. We're becoming smarter
consumers.

IMO, the new cars will never be worth what the old one's are now. It's more of a throw away society now. These new cars preform awesome, but no real class. Nothing earth breaking in design. There are many like them on the market. If you are worried about value, don't sell your old Stangs.

Well look at the 2005/06 Ford GT; it has nearly doubled in value in 10 years.


I think the 2016 GT350 is the one to buy; after all - the 2015 Mustang is a 'landmark' car somewhat like the 03-04 Cobra. However, will it ever appreciate drastically? Not too sure; it's not a supercar or exotic afterall.


Moreover, it seems they're heavily overpriced - $70K is what they seem to be selling for.

A car lot local to me is asking 58k for one out the door..Supposedly someone put a 5k deposit on it then lost bank financing due to a court order judgement for failure of unpaid taxes...not sure of what options it has though... I did notice it just had basic seats in it..If I recall wasn't the gt500 going for almost 100k with dealer markup when they first hit the block..now you can get them for 38k with extremely low miles

If you pay an ADM, that value is lost the minute you sign the paperwork.

I would not expect a limited run of these. Look how many 07-14' GT500's were made. Each year getting little (or big) tweaks.

You may have to wait 30+ years for a positive return.

Buy one to drive the wheels off.

The 2015 would be the one to own. Actual anniversary year and only 137 produced and awarded by lottery. None have hit the dealers as far as I know because they are trying to release them all at once. The 2016( which I have on order) production started October 20-22, 2015. Mine will be started week of Nov.16 and tentatively due to arrive in late December(not holding my breath). I'm buying mine to drive and probably do some track days. I have many, many friends that bought the "rare" late model Shelbys, garaged them then traded or sold them for pennies on the dollar. My opinion is, buy it to drive...it's not a GT, it's a mustang...JMHO

Yup^^^^^^^^ agree
The 2015 cars are all selling for 75k+- the investment has been lost.

Buy it to drive and enjoy, not as an investment. Keep the fastbacks of you want Mustang(s) that holds its/their value.

I guess my biggest concern is do you think they will be limited run or will they make them for a few years. ..if so I don't mind waiting a couple years

My life long friend is the GM of a big Ford dealer here in MD. He thinks they will continue the run based on interest they have created. The 2016 GT350R cars don't even have a tentative build date scheduled yet. His one allocation was paid for In Full by a buyer in August but he hasn't even got a build date yet... I got this message from him...

You have a warranty on any of those others?
Compare it to the Boss and LaGunaSeca type models of the last few years. Most will go down 15-20% for 4-5 years then kinda bottom with those still accumulating miles continue to fall and bottom at ~1/2 price if they get high miles within 10 years those with only a few thousand miles will hover around MSRP and in 10 years be worth 55K.
Shopping around today might get you one for 68K unless you've got a friendly dealer. Give them 6 months and you might find some for only a few K above MSRP.
Then start doing driving events and run around with Porsches that cost twice as much.
They may be a limited run but expect another "super" car with different name. Maybe Boss again for a few years.

What about one of these Hennesey tuned GT's topping 200 mph?

2015 Hennessey Ford Mustang hits 207.9 mph

Less $ than a GT350 and should leave it in the dust

Any plan for buying a new performance car and sitting back, watching the value rocket is probably fruitless. After seeing the way such cars sold for huge money in the 80's, many folks started squirreling away such cars. A low-mile garage-kept 1965 GT350 has always been a rarity, but since the public became aware of such things, they turn up regularly on newer cars. A few years back a friend of mine wanted a 94 pace car, and found one with only a few miles on it, never even dealer prepped, for only a little more than a good used one.

Buy a car you'll enjoy driving. Waiting for the cha-ching on a 2016 car is something for your grandchildren.

Highly unlikely to hold value. My 2013 GT500 was destined to be a classic:
"Last car CS was involved in"
"Trinity engine-nothing will ever compare"
"New body style won't be the same, end of the 'true Mustang' era"

and lots of other BS. I bought mine at MSRP and got a deal at that time (to the point of being called a liar for saying I didn't pay ADM).

I drove mine, and made lifelong memories. When I traded it two years later, I took a hit for having 24k on the odometer, because the internet was full of similar cars with <5k. I took the hit with a smile-I considered I the premium I paid to do things that would get me thrown I jail if there were YouTube videos. ��

Along the way I realized that there is a big difference between our cars and the new ones: No matter how exclusive a current model car is, Ford will build a better one in a few years. The new Boss 302s were the best track Mustang ever built in 2012. The 2016 GT just posted a better VIR time I one of the rags.

The new GT350 looks to be one heck of a car, and I would love to have one. I just wouldn't delude myself into thinking it would be the car that defies depreciation. Buy it and drive the wheels off it.
