Would You Rather Buy A Brand New Chevrolet Corvette Or An iPhone X?14
Right now, you can purchase a brand new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray for less than an iPhone X pre-order listed on eBay for a whopping $60,000. Even if it’s a typo and the seller typed one-too-many zeroes, that’s still a pretty penny.
According to The Daily Dot, other iPhone X pre-orders listed on eBay are more “reasonably” priced, ranging from $1,500 to $3,000 USD. The starting price on the iPhone X is just $1,000, but securing one could be a bit difficult, hence the hefty markups.
To put that into perspective, the lowest-priced, brand-new Chevrolet C7 Corvette can be had for around $44,168 (after all kinds of Corvette rebates), though the model starts at around $55,000. Meanwhile, preorders for the iPhone X went live on October 27th, 2017.
So, which would you rather have: one of the first to have an iPhone X or a new ‘vette?

What a shameless plug for the iPhone.
Then again, the hype has worn off and the iPhone XXXXX has no interest judging by the lack of pre-orders or interest. Guess that is why Mr. Cruz is so desperate as an Apple zombie trying to pass off a shameless and deperate plug as an “article.”
I use an LG G5, and I’ve never owned an iPhone…
Phio – as much as your tongue-in-cheek comment may have impressed you when you were composing it, it is not impressive, funny or otherwise amusing.
If you knew anything about GM Authority or the way we do things around here, you would know that we don’t “plug” anything. Unlike most other sites that get paid for sponsored posts and promoted content, GM Authority does not engage in such practices and has chosen to forego such revenue streams. Hence your comment “shameless plug” for the iPhone is baseless, unfounded and ill-advised.
Hope you come up with some better material next time, as it will take a lot more than that to de-base the years of integrity, quality, conviction and hard work we have built up since our inception.
The Chevrolet Corvette is the obviously better offer at any price. It is fully American made (the iPhone is made at Foxcomm in China). and it is a full vehicle that carries you, not the other way around
Instead of getting such an expensive phone, try any of the Android models, including Moto and Samsung. Both have better features than any Apple product.
Android fanboyz are out to play today.
There is nothing inherently “better” about anything running Android. Apple simply does it better and more refined… while the Android manufacturers focus on features that are halfa$$ed and might kind of sort of work.
Then there’s the question of updates. On Android, you would be lucky to get your device updated one year after buying it to the latest OS version. Apple always makes its latest updates available to everyone, which is vital to security and to having the latest features.
Don’t even get me started on battery life and app quality of efficiency. Android downright fails in this regard.
Do your research Raymond. You get what you pay for. There is a reason why the iPhone is the most sought after, most popular and highest satisfying smartphone and consumer electronics device in the world year in and year out.
I can use programs on my Android phone and tablet without having a Google account and without visiting the Google “Play store”. Apple phones OTOH have no other source than the Apple store.
I see this as a big advantage, despite the insatiable quest for personal data by Google, the Big Brother of our times.
Umm, The Samsung phones have a much better battery life than any of the recent Iphones.
I’m guessing that in this scenario, I’m a multimillionaire and both are equally affordable?
Well, I spend more of my time on the phone, it’s essential for my calendar, mail, camera, maps, and phone and video calls to family who is abroad. I’d opt for the vette.
Vette, obviously. What I actually found more interesting is you can get a new Vette for $44,168. Even a base Vette is a lot of car for that kind of $$.
Lifespan of any Apple iPhone is about 9-12 months and as soon as a new iPhone model is introduced, the chatter will be what the next generation will look like; while the C7 Corvette is stability as it doesn’t change much from one year to the next which means you won’t need to be planning on getting a replacement in 12 months time.
Actually you’re wrong.
The life span of an iPhone is roughly 39 months on all original hardware, which is much longer than any other smartphone.
And you don’t “need” to plan on getting a new iPhone… you are simply given the option to do so if you want to and if having the latest device is important to you… much like model year changes for corvettes or other automobiles. Those who desire the latest will get it right away. Those who don’t, will not.
By the way, the value of an iPhone after 24 months is quite high as evidenced by those selling their devices unlocked on eBay and Craigslist and such. Not the case for corvettes, which plunges in value the minute you drive it off the lot.
Get your facts straight.
“None of the above” is my response to the original question.
