Just negotiated a deal for a black 09 coupe, auto, 25k miles, for $23,000. Good deal?
It's a fair deal (assuming it is a 2.4?).
Doesn't have the optional soft top. Anybody know where I can get one?
Crate Engine Depot usually have them in stock for around $1,000, but soft tops also pop up on Ebay sometimes for much less.
Also, how are these cars looking as collectibles?
With the emphasis on collectible I'd say coupes will have a decent chance of continue to be higher on the food chain due to supply and demand. Just remember relatively low-production numbers doesn't necessarily mean they will become valuable. But then I also think Kappa's verts will continue to be sought out because the majority of people still like convertibles.
Let's put this in prospective.
If someone would have purchased this year 1000 shares of Facebook after the IPO.
They fell to about $21.00, went ahead an purchase them for an investment of (21K), it would be worth today after just 7 months $75K +.
If you want to call the Solstice coupe it a collectible fine, and keep it that way is fine also, but do not think for a minute is an investment!!!
I bought my 2.4 red '09 Coupe with 35K miles for $24K about 6 months ago. The only 3 other Coupes for sale nationwide at the time were also priced at $24K, regardless of mileage. One had about 8K mileage and a baby blue one had 66K on it. All were $24K.
I'd say that you got a fair deal.
Value/Collectibility/Investment-wise, I'm happy knowing, based on the above, that at least my car won't DEPRECIATE in value as quickly as other cars(As long as I don't wear it out or wreck it).
