That's not a bad sticker price... what about market premium? (how's waiting list looking?)
TBH, I would still wait for the upped (re-engined) and F1-tranny versions. Now, at 65K this will have an impact on the price of used Coupes, maybe not on GS... but have to agree 95 grand is very competitive.Honestly, I was expecting in the neighborhood of 120-130, so 95k is pretty significant. The side shot in that article is one I haven't seen either, and I like it. Top Gear magazine's april issue has a cover article on the Gran Turismo, with the tagline 'the world just got a little bit cooler'. Their article is no less praising, and I give a little bit more respect to their opinion than some of the other mags out there.
With the press the car has gotten, and if pricing holds up to this, I'm pretty excited. I think the nay-sayers might be in for a surprise.
$95K will blow Mercedes away.
The only way they will do this is if they have the infrastructure to support it.$95K will blow Mercedes away.
I think the guys from Modena are finally getting it right.
well put.I don't understand why they think people having *too high* an opinion of them is a bad thing. Most automakers would kill for that kind of image. They should move upmarket instead of trying to convince everyone they're cheap.
Because is someone has a 95K budget for a car, they will go into the Mercedes dealer, the BMW dealer and the Porsche dealer, but will NOT go into the Maserati/Ferrrari dealer. They already "know" that those cars are out of thier budget.I don't understand why they think people having *too high* an opinion of them is a bad thing.

I was at the private intro held at the Park Ave showroom on Tuesday evening before the start of the NY Auto Show. I could be mistaken but I thought I heard a price of 110K, which could have been "as equipped". Either way this car has 'Presence" which is something the outgoing coupe & spyder lacked.The price was originally reported in the Top Gear magazine article, and was reported from there. I realized after posting that I never saw who actually said that. I went back to the article this morning and it doesn't list a source.
We also have not seen any kind of official pricing, so the article could be wrong. I got so excited reading it, but maybe should have waited.
