Get 2 Zl1!!!!

I wonder how much the juice is to floor one of these?
looking at cars.com you could buy 3 for 250k.

That is a good racket, I think that Teslas "no dealer" business model is what will keep them popular not only the product. Stuff like this tends to irk people. If they can find a sucker who will pay 200k+ for a late model mustang good on them. I would make the point that 250 can bag you a ferrari or lambo as well.

I was looking for a Mustang with a level two package in the six speed manual. Didn’t walk out with the car today, but they made a pretty good deal. They’re offering me 34K on the trade for my 19 scat pack charger. That’s what I bought the car for over a year ago.

Shit, with that deal, I'd be looking to see what else is on their lot. Depending on how bad you want to offload the Dodge.

Yep, my sales guy said they just sold a green one downstate for $220k lol
Someone is blowing smoke... that car did not sell for 220k. They weren't even going for anywhere near that markup for the first ones that came out a long time ago.

For $180k I'd rather just buy an 03 SVT Cobra Terminator Mustang
I wouldn't sell mine for anything under 200k.

Gotta say that even at $180K you can take a loaded GT and get a fuck ton of work done on it. A Bullit with a bunch of extra stuff comes in below $60K. You can get a full Hellion kit with tuning and all the extras for $20Kish, spend another $5K on the fuel system, spend $12K on an aluminator and then another say 20 into the trans/diff/drive shaft, suspension etc. and still have $60K for labor and you'll end up with a car probably running 8s in the 1/4 and a vastly superior supension setup plus have a few bucks left in your pocket when you're done by selling take off parts. No contest in my mind, if I was that desperate to have a GT500 at that point I'd just clone it out.

Member the mark up on GT350s? Now, you can get them under sticker. All we need is a little patience...
I've told this story about my boss and his 'got to have it' 2000 Cobra R.

He paid DOUBLE for it. Now one can have a slightly used one for less than sticker.

Go on, Stupid. Lay out the Benji's for an impulse buy.

Frankly, I'll never waste money on a new car again. Let alone a marked up, gotta have it car. In 6 months, what have you got?

If I had serious fuck you money I'd be about getting a car I'd think would go up in value. Something like a Mclaren. I certainly wouldn't spend quarter mil on a Mustang unless it was of extremely special provenance (think like the original Bullit car.)
