I'm not sure but I would imagine the miscalculation is actually from where it says that some of the items have been removed to protect the buyer. So there may have been another 2000 extra in options that the guy ordered but evidently did not want peeps to see.....just a thought.
Anyone remember the Shelby fiasco, where they sold all the cars for a certain price before they actually made the cars. And then they had to keep raising the prices to cover more costs, etc... Sounds a lot like that. There's no way I would buy a car before I got to test drive one that was just like it.
I saw 2 on ebay a few days ago. Supposedly being sold by a "5-star Chrysler dealer". This is the same kind of price gouging some Ford dealers did with the GT 500 and Shelby GT. They also did it with the "new" Thunderbird a few years ago, and we all know how that worked out. I just hope common sense will prevail with the new Camaro, and not lead the dealerships to "pre-sell" Camaros at over-inflated prices. Hopefully manufacturing capability will prevent this!
I agree, for the few weeks or months before the realese of the camaro, there will prolly be dealers puttin them on ebay for their first deleveries, followed closely by an extremely high pricetag for the first few deleveries.
However, the challenger they are selling is the top of the line version(srt8?) If I remeber correctly, chevy wont be releasing the top of the line model right off the bat( completely opposite of the chally). But, its been sometime since I have been around here and things might(probably) changed some.
The reason the Challenger's are selling so high is because this first year they are top model only and limited.
The Camaro is going to have more medels from the start and won't be limited.
They are hoping to sell 100,000 Camaros compared to 6,000-10,000 Challengers the first year.
That is over 1,000% more cars.
actually i just found out i'll be able to get a challenger at AN EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT:lol::mullet::bowdown:
see since the guy who owns the mitsu dealership also owns a chrysler/jeep dealership as well and chrysler owns not only jeep but dodge as well so i can get a discount! and i will not be paying any dealer markup.
