    Greetings all. I've got it bad for a C8. Wondering if a mortal human being can actually purchase one before he dies of old age, and if anyone actually sells the things at or below MSRP. I've heard horror stories about price gouging and horrific dealer markups. Just here to get the facts. Current ride is a '13 Scion FR-S, but I'm way out of the demographic for Toyobaru/Subota FRS/GT86/BRZ owners. In other words I'm a retired old fart.

      Lots of dealers, including all the forum dealers, will let you order one at MSRP. Finding one available to buy today is hard. Finding one at MSRP pretty near impossible. If you make a reservation with one of the big dealers today, you're probably looking at delivery between 6 and 12 months from now.

      Where in Maryland are you? I grew up there, and live in the Virginia suburbs now.

              Welcome to this Fantastic Forum - Bottom of the home page are the forum dealers. They all sell pretty close to MSRP. If your looking for short term purchase-your going to pay substantial amount over sticker. If you can afford Patience then you should hopefully see one within a year or so.
              Good thing is - Reading stories and seeing pictures and watching videos will help keep you younger. 😉

                Welcome aboard! There is an entire thread here on purchasing a C8. And although finding a dealer who has inventory at MSRP is rare, there are some out there. I keep this website up on my computer and click the "view inventory" link: https://www.chevrolet.com/performanc...ild-and-price/

                However, beware that some links APPEAR to show C8s at MSRP but when you actually go to the dealer website, they are way above. On the other hand, I've seen a few that are selling at MSRP, but you have to act fast when you find them, like within a day or two. Many have "sale pending" on the listing, but you could get lucky.

                  Glad you joined us! I think there are still plenty of honest dealers out there if you want to order a C8. Getting one at MSRP shouldn't be a problem. You could always use one our forum dealers to order and drop ship if necessary, but talk to a local dealer first about it. You can usually tell by their demeanor, if they're shootin' straight, and ask around, to find a dealer that's treating people right. Finding one on a lot is tough, and you can expect a large markup from them. If you can wait, order one. Surely the delays we've experienced so far will be mitigated in coming production cycles and it won't be so long! It is worth whatever wait you experience. ( Notice I used large type in deference to your advancing age, you're welcome ), ( I'm in the same boat )

                          The OP made one post over a year ago and never responded to anyone. Doubt we'll see him again.
