    Going, Going, Gone

    Well, I've given up. GM said my car might be available for delivery in November that'd be 3 weeks.As I sold my primary car I have been driving my vintage Caddy and NOT happy about that. My miles are low and want to keep it just that way, and asleep in the garage. I also have STILL been unable to secure any pricing. Therefore, and very sadly, I will add I am giving up my car order. I have never experiencing anything quite like this CTS-V, an amazing car that I just can't get any info on- enuf already. SO... if anyone is looking for a black beauty it's available. I'm out. Times are so economically tough and for GM to just let us all hang is cruel and inhumane treatment. I give you all kudo's to stick this one out and will be green with envy when the car does appear.
    Sadly,
    LD

    You love it enough be green with envy, but youre not patient enough to wait a couple weeks? You could have bought a beater to hold you over. Let's be honest, the economy is tough for people who cant afford to buy milk or put gas in their car.

    I really dont understand the impatience.

    Re: Going, Going, Gone

    Actually, I hate to say this, but if these "bad times" continue, GM will have to either make this a very limited issue or lower the final price, with deep discounts...\\

    Either way I can wait.

    Re: Going, Going, Gone

    I love how the 2 issues are blended together as though they have any relevance on each other. If they came out 8 months ago and said the new V would cost $20G and be ready for delivery in November, would you be bitching about it then? Or if they said it was $100G but would be ready in July, what then?

    I love how some of the people in this country think this situation is cruel and inhumane. The expected price hasn't fluctuated in months and the delivery date has stayed within the same timeframe as well.

    I'm just grateful to now be spared the "cruel and inhumane treatment" of having to read such drivel in these threads started by the spoiled OP, LD...

    I agree with BigJim. What's with all the whining. The cookies will be out of the oven when they're done. Buy a Vespa to hold you over.

    Whew, GM best price this thing right

    I have a V on order, but after losing 1/3 of my savings in the last 2 weeks, my only hope is that GM does not do something dumb like price this car at 70K plus.

    How bad is the car market? I have a low mileage, pristine 06 M5 which fully loaded had an MSRP of over $98K. I can't get a sniff on it at $55K. My 06 Viper--also with an MSRP north of $90K is worth about $58K. The eagerly anticipated 08 Viper had a production run of around 1300 units--there are now about 400 still on dealer lots and my friend paid $92 for one and has it for sale for $73K. The factory is sitting on a bunch cause Dealers won't accept.The much desired Z06s are now in the mid 60s new.

    GM---don't screw up or else you will have these Vs sitting once again just like you did on the STS-Vs and Gen1 CTS-Vs and the 100K XLR-Vs (one of which I bought new for 77K)

    70K would be the high end, not 70K+

    Cadillac didn't have any problem selling Gen 1 CTS-Vs, there were still people looking for them after they were all sold off the lots new. STS and XLR-Vs were apparently priced too high new vs demand for the cars. But then they weren't produced at near the numbers even the CTS-Vs were.

    who says Bimmers have a high resale?
    I thought the Caddy website says $59,025
    Looks like youre not very good at making investments?

    Re: Whew, GM best price this thing right

    i think $59.9k MSRP is the right price.

    a 20% premium for an upgraded drivetrain and body kit is market, especially since most of these parts will be spread out amongst the corvette, camaro, cts-coupe, cts-wagon, and who knows what else.

    GM needs to price this car to a profit, but they do not need to over-price the car like they have done with sts and xlr. that was clearly not a winning sales formula. the residual values tell the story.
