There are plenty of people out there that absolutely must own the latest and greatest product to hit the market, and the 2020 Corvette is no exception. Now, with the first examples of the new mid-engine Corvette having been shipped across the U.S. and Canada, some owners and dealers have decided to take advantage of the demand and make a healthy profit in the process.
Multiple listings for the new mid-engine 2020 Corvette are now flooding online, with posts seen on eBay, Facebook Marketplace, and craigslist. Some carry inflated price tags, which shouldn’t be a surprise considering the huge demand for the all-new Vette.
One example is listed with the top 3LT trim, Z51 package, high wing spoiler, 5-trident-spoke wheels, and Magnetic Selective Ride Control, among several other options. While clearly loaded with extras, the sticker price is set at $88,220. Meanwhile, the vehicle is on eBay with a “Buy It Now” price of $119,900.
Another example is listed with the 2LT trim level and Z51 Performance Package, Magnetic Selective Ride Control, GT2 Bucket Seats, and few other aesthetic upgrades, with the sticker price set at $81,290. The “Buy It Now” price for that vehicle is set at $125,000.
Now, with GM production suspended in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, availability of these vehicles will be even tighter, which makes it even more likely that impatient buyers will be willing to shell out serious coin to be one of the first to own a new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen inflated prices for the new 2020 Corvette. Back in November, we covered one eBay listing that sought to sell a 1LT coupe at a firm $110,000. What’s more, the listing wasn’t even for a vehicle that was already built, but rather was for a build slot.
All told, it’ll be interesting to watch what folks are willing to pay to get their hands on the new 2020 Corvette, especially with the recent production suspension now in play.
