    Will Launch Edition Cars Always Command A Premium?

    In a traditional sense, I've come to recognize that generally "factory options" don't command a premium in the pre-owned market, unless they are truly unique. To this end, I'm wondering whether in two - three years, when the Launch Edition cars that are currently priced at $99.3K start exchanging hands, will they do so at prices similar to a C2S priced in the high-$80's / low-$90's - in other words, will all "MY05" C2S prices start to converge within two - three years? Or will you always be able to extract a $5 - $7K premium for the PCCB's and the "Launch Edition" cache?

    I'm more in the former camp - i.e., LE C2S owners are going to be faced with steeper depreciation curves than other C2S owners as I ultimately see pricing converging - but I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    Mind you, I'm talking about two - three years, not 12 - 15 years, by which time I recognize prices will be much tighter.

    Re: Will Launch Edition Cars Always Command A Premium?

    It depends when the launch cars were purchased. Those that were bought on or before the launch date maybe. Those that sat at a dealership and were subject to test rides probably will be discounted. They had a hard life and are subjected to premature clutch failure among other problems.

    yes

    Re: Will Launch Edition Cars Always Command A Premium?

    A LE C2S commanding a premium? seriously doubt that within 3 yrs you'll be able to differentiate.

    further, don't recall any of the first '02 facelift or '98 996 launch cars holding any special cache.

    not at all.
