I just noticed one of the cars on e-bay is now going for a $10,000+ premium over the sticker price with 3 days to go on the auction. It is one of the first 1000 cars. WOW! Where do you think this will stop?

I know one of the bidders on that auction. He is getting a Mallett conversion done, and he wants to be first in line. There are a few Mallett customers looking at EBAY for getting their car sooner. If you really want to sell your first 1000 there are customers waiting...

Hello again,
Just went to check and there are three of the 1st that are for sale on ebay. Indeed one for 10,100... one at over $3000 and the other is brand new with an opening bid of $1000. Wow! To each his own.

In a way, this is good news for all of us! If the buzz stays this strong around the car, that means resale values will be high, and aftermarket support will be strong. It looks like that will happen already anyway, but if the cars are going for several thousand over MSRP on E-bay before anyone ever drives one, that goes one step further toward cementing the Solstice's place in automotive history. :party:

WaitingForBoost,

Remember the T-Bird, Mini, Audi TT, Miata

Just in case you guys don't remember, here are some vehicles that were introduced at $10,000 over the MSRP. I owned the Audi TT and Miata and was fortunate to pay only the MSRP when they were introduced to the market. I later sold the Miata for $9,000 over MSRP after two months, sold the Audi TT for $12,000 over MSRP. I'm in So. California and people with $$$$ will pay for what they want. I have two Solstice's on order ("not" first 1000).......believe me, when these babies hit the streets, I can only imagine $$$$$

IMO, the first 1000 will get $3k-$10k over sticker and the regular orders will get $1k-$5K over sticker. This should only last for 6-9 months then the resale prices will be below MSRP except maybe the 1-99 first 1000 VIN cars. They should probably stay above MSRP for a good while.

I don't think its a mystery

I posted a tread a few days back explaining that this is my auction. Due to unforeseen circumstances it is not feasible for me to keep my solstice so we decided to put it up on ebay. In no way did I expect the auction to go this high and I fear that people may be mistaking my auction for the price of the car and not the right to purchase it. who knows, I just hope that no one is messing with me. I emailed the high bidders to reiterate the details so there would be no confusion. I guess we will see.

I own a 2002 Tbird, the retro... enough said on that... Congrats on your bids... even if the last guy bidding is messing with you... you should be ok.. it is not beyond belief that folks ... who are collectors.. will pay and hold them.. I have a total of 8 cars and I do believe this car will hold value and will have future value...
hope it goes well for you in the final stages of your auction.

I agree....$3K to $10K would make this unbearable wait tolerable...

drive it a mile or two, put it on Ebay, sell it for a profit, put profit toward GXP!
and let the wait begin again.
