I have a feeling the 2015's are going to be a big sales flop. I had a 2015 Limited Edition ordered, then I saw a 2015, and was so disappointed I cancelled my orderwhen a new body design comes out for the new model year, the old body style takes an additional hit.
That's a bad bet. The new car is probably gonna sell really well.I have a feeling the 2015's are going to be a big sales flop. I had a 2015 Limited Edition ordered, then I saw a 2015, and was so disappointed I cancelled my order
So hope that will help the value of our cars
Not to mention there will always be a segment that wants "The Next Big/Latest Thing". No matter what.That's a bad bet. The new car is probably gonna sell really well.
I was reading and saying the same thing about the radical design change in a 2014 Corvette.......yet the '13s fell off a cliff in sales after the new car was introduced. The 2014 despite having a controversial look that had abandoned so many Corvette styling themes is actually just so much better a performer that it's now far more desirable despite the appearance controversy.
Like you I don't care for the look of a 2015 Mustang either........leaked pictures actually inspired me to go get a '14 in October of last year.
But I wouldn't count on our opinion being the popular one. The IRS plus what will probably be more HP is all but sure to win over the crowd......this despite the subjective opinion you and I might have that the '05-'14 models are better looking.
Ken,Us old farts aren"t laughing now, had a 1966 GT 350,sure wish I had that today,along with my 428 CJ Mach 1 and my 69 Vette and my Charger 440 and a few others but we had fun LOL.Yeah, we had one member here who stated that he only lost $1500 trading his GT after 6 months. Not sure anyone believed him. Even GT500`s lose more than that. Any car is a lousy investment unless you have a crystal ball. When I was a lot younger, we used to point & laugh at guys driving by in their Plymouth Superbirds, Dodge Daytonas and the like.
I really like my car.......but I have NO DELUSIONS about what I bought.
IT's a Mustang........ you buy 'em because they are fun to drive.
As a value it's pretty good.
As an investment it's the WORST!
Focus on the right thing here you'll enjoy owning........focus on the wrong thing and you'll feel the fool.
Even as cars go in general a Mustang is pretty bad in the depreciation dept.
It's a catch 22........the same thing that makes it fun to own ensures so many are built that when you sell you're always up against more than just a few similar cars for sale.
Honestly? I'm surprised the car can generate anything much on re-sale. The GT is the kind of car owners drive HARD and it has enough power to break things. I wouldn't even consider a used Mustang no longer under warranty.
This is a car where you have to be able to afford the price of the car without worrying about depreciation over those first few years.......or you need to commit yourself to the idea of owning it long enough to feel you got ALL of your money's worth out of it!
