2011-2014 GT Very Little Price Differences

2011-2014 GT Very Little Price Differences

So as the title says I am looking at 2011-2014 GT's right now and they are first of all scarce and hard to find. Much harder than this used to be. Why lots of theories discussed on other threads like airbag recall and etc....

Anyway topic of this thread is does anybody else notice in their area the price for a 2011 GT is very close to the price of a 2014 GT. Why is this? Normally there is a 2-3K differnece between years in most cars and used to be this way in Mustangs. It seems now in Mustangs 2011 GT's and 2014 GT's all fall for the most part within a 5K range of each other and all mixed in.

What is going on? Thoughts?

In a way I agree. I just bought a 2014 in December and looked at a lot of cars. I think there is a slight jump between the 11/12 and the 13/14. But the delta is near or less than the delta between a premium and base. I think you can get a decent base 11/12 GT for under 20K, but if it's a 13/14 it will be more. There certainly aren't as many solid axle 5.0 S197s as other ranges of Mustang. I suspect if you specifically looked for another specific 4 year range it would be similar. I don't think they've lost value as hard as Mustangs used to either. Both the supply and price may be demand for the 5.0 cars. It isn't difficult to find 6-bangers and their prices make more sense. I also found that if there was a good looking car at a decent price you couldn't wait for the weekend to go look for it. They go fast. I think they pop up for sale as often as other cars, they just don't sit around on lots.

Popular car so people keep it and the follow up version is still a little polarizing for some in the market. I needed into the market again in 2015 after wrecking my 12 and I went ultimately with a 14 loaded auto. I was familiar with the car, it suited my purposes and, even though I liked the 2015, the price point was too high bc it was a new design at the time.

2014 Premium GT, SGM, Brembo, Auto, Tech, Comfort, etc. GT500s, Steeda UCA, VMP auto tune, 100 shot on BBR tune, best et: 11.4 at 120.64

2012 GT, Candy Red, Brembo, 3.73, Tech, Comfort, etc. Procal tune, Roush upper, UMI LCAs, Steeda red bracket, GT500s, 28X10X16 Hoosier slicks, best et: 11.91 at 115.23 RIP

Yeah I am finding GT premiums in the 2011-2014 with less than 60K miles range for all years around 20-24K. Some 2014's cheaper than 2011's. haha

Yeah I sold my 2011 about 3-4 years ago for around 21K and now they seem to be selling for that or more. So prices don't seem to be falling at all. I mean for a hair more like 3-4K I could get a 2015 GT used... haha I am at a loss for what to do honestly.

Was hoping to get a 2011-2012 GT for around 16-18K before I started looking as I know the 13-14's are 20-25K. However I just find 2011-2014 all around the same price at 20-25K... haha CRAZY Makes this really hard...

I do know whatever I choose and buy the prices will start to fall right then as it always does... No matter what I buy I lose around 1-2K on it a year in value. haha It is like a curse.

A 2015 GT Premium is around 28K near me right now. Almost makes sense when you see 2011-2014's for around 24K.

The 4K diff between 2014 and 2015 is what I would expect. 4K for body motor change years and other years I expect around a 2K diff.... Just doesn't seem to be that way right now.

Perhaps folks simply like the styling of the S197 cars more than the S550 cars??

This thread makes me smile. The other week, on a day when it was 70 degrees around here, I took my 1800 mile (I don`t drive her much ) `13 GT `vert out for a little drive. On a whim, I pulled into my local Ford dealer to look at a couple of GT500`s they had. The sales person looked my car over & said " NIce car you have there, but you know, these cars are not selling very well these days. I could talk to my manager & maybe get you a number in the low to mid teens for your car towards one of these GT500`s". I actually laughed out loud.

I have been casually looking for a 2012 GT for a couple years now. There are a few of them for sale around here (Massachusetts) but none so far that meet my wish list (Red Candy, Brembo, MT, Premium, fairly low mileage). The ones that are available are generally in the low 20's.

If I was willing to "settle" for a 2013 or 2014, I would have a lot more options; and yeah I have noticed that the prices are not much higher, if any higher, than 2012. Not sure what is going on there. Personally I just don't like the grille and hood of the 2013-2014 cars so that's why I'm holding out for a 2012.

Haha I will personally give you more than low to mid teens for your car... hahaha That is just absurd for him to even say that even if he was joking... Dealers these days I feel like they don't think before they speak...

Yeah it is crazy how scarce and well the 2011+ 5.0's are holding value. That is not like the Mustang past I know. If I still owned my 2011 I would be loving it, but since I don't and am looking for one I hate it. haha

I am also noticing especially listing my Boss tonight that Mustangs and especially Boss Mustangs seem to be sitting a good while. So not sure what is going on.

I saw a 37K mile 11 GT premium last week selling for $16,500, the ad quickly disappeared. I see 14's under 20K now with increasing regularity, even saw a 2013 9500 mile GT500 loaded for 45K yesterday.

It's all about the seller. GT's will sit quite a while at $24K and Boss' will sit at $30+K. When the sellers are willing to deal a couple/few grand cheaper, the cars sell very fast. So, check every day and be ready to jump when the right car shows up.

If that 2011 GT Premium was a manual I bet somebody snatched that up super quick. What a deal. Heck even if a auto I might have considered it at that price. Then the wife could have drove it some. haha

Yeah pricing is key although for me if I owned a 2013-2014 I would price around 24-26 as I would want more than somebody with a 2011-2012. Although I figure my Boss is going to sit a little while as it is such a niche car and takes that right Mustang enthusiast to want it and pay for it.

I bought a 2014 for far less than your thoughts of 24-26. A base 2011 is probably around 18K, a premium Track Pack low mileage 2014 may be 24. Sure ... some people will pay more if they find the perfect car they want. But I'm talking about realistic SELLING price, not ASKING price. When I talked to a seller that advertised a car at 24 and wasn't willing to deal on price, that car sat. When they sounded willing to deal, I usually couldn't make it there quickly enough to get the car. What I'm trying to say is, if you just look at the ads and ebay you're seeing cars that are not selling. If you track cars that actually sell, prices are lower and there is a difference between years and mileage.

True selling price and listing price are two different things and other than eBay it is near impossible to know what they are actually selling for as you never no how much somebody came down from their listing price.

Although I know a lot of dealers at least around here are going to Carmax "no haggle" pricing models.

I bought my 2011 GT Premium with 25k miles on it for $20K back in July. Just be on the lookout, and like someone else said, check every day.
