It would be nice to think that a used Z06 will fetch a premium, but that is unlikely.(Not anytime soon anyway) I thought the same thing about my GNX and they only built 547 of them as opposed to thousands of Z06's I'm still waiting to see someone pay more for one now than what it cost new (haven't yet, maybe in another 14 years or so)
You all must be on the east coast. The only Z06 I could even find in the San Francisco Bay Area was going for $62,000 at a dealer. So I bought mine through the VetteNet for $150 over MSRP (shipping included) from Memphis, TN.
The breakin is torture though...I can't wait to stomp on it!

Here is a copy of the email I just sent out...
I have a question for you. I was looking over your ad for the Z06 and noticed that you are asking a SALE price of $69,900 firm.
My question is, what other car is included in this sale for that price? Because for the $22,000 increase in price, I was wondering if there was another used corvette perhaps a 95-96 in the deal for that kind of price.
Or was this supposed to be an Ad price for a NEW Viper? Surely you dont really believe that a car that sells new for $48k with all options is going to sell for $70 grand do you? Especially when they are sitting on lots in many states at invoice or below.
I may know who this is, just e-mailed and looking for a reply. Can you say NO WAY.

But then again, did anyone remember seeing the Z06 auctions on eBay before they were available? I remember one auction getting $25,000 + just for the place in line to get a Z06!
I'm damn glad I waited.

I bought mine at MSRP and sneaked a peak at the dealer invoice. My dealer was making $6300 profit but showed me an offer where a Florida dealer had emailed him and offered him $2k over list because he was holding a check for a yellow Z for $4k over MSRP. Unless I got hustled is anyone really selling at INVOICE?????? I bought last month and maybe I don't want to know. I hope "at invoice" above was a typo.
'01, Z06, stock Millenium Yellow, Everyday driver (such a treat to drive the car of the year)
Before I bought my Z06 here in Maryland, I checked with many of the dealers in MD, VA, PA area. Most of them had extra profit ranging from $2K to $10K added to MSRP listed on the window for all Vettes. However, I'm sure I could have gotten pretty close to actual dealer invoice on a few of the cars I looked at.
With the Z06 it was a different matter. Only one dealer was willing to go under MSRP (by only $200 if I ordered the Z06). They had a black Z06 that was sold the week before I bought mine that they sold for somewhere between $4-5k over MSRP. I did get mine at MSRP. The only thing the dealer through in were BSM ($75 parts) and a year of free scheduled maintenance (which I probably won't use since there isn't much scheduled maintenance the first year, and I'm doing my own oil changes).
So if you get your Z at MSRP or below window sticker invoice you're doing pretty good. And if you can get one at dealer invoice (as felkebg said, the profit margin built into MSRP is over $6k) you've gotten an excellent deal.
