One of the comments that I see (mostly on Facebook) are those that believe all dealers are going to gouge buyers on the price of the 2020 Corvette Stingray. There are dealers that will, but we found a great list on the Corvette Forum that shows the dealers selling the next-generation Corvette at MSRP as well as those who are asking a premium over MSRP.
What’s fun for us is that they “borrowed” one of our Top Corvette Dealers lists to use as the starting point and that it still includes the links to our dealers that we have as sponsors of CorvetteBlogger. I am happy to say that all the dealers advertising on CorvetteBlogger are selling at MSRP:
- Kerbeck Corvette – Atlantic City, NJ – Dave Salvatore – 877-537-2325
- Criswell Corvette – Gaithersburg, MD – Mike Furman – 301-212-4420
- Les Stanford Chevrolet – Dearborn, MI – James Fillmore – 313-724-1416
- Bomnin Corvette – South Florida – 305-697-5732
- Van Bortel Chevrolet – Macedon, NY – Matt Fagenbaum – 585-222-4389
The Corvette Forum’s list of Corvette dealers selling at MSRP is being updated and each day we see more and more comments about specific Corvette dealers and whether or not they are selling at MSRP. Also, some have chimed in with how many allocations they have (or have left).
There are dealers selling with “market adjustments” of up to $10,000 and honestly, I don’t know why anyone would pay a dealership a premium when they don’t have to.
I mentioned this (also on facebook) that if your local dealer is asking for money on top of the MSRP, politely tell them you will pass and then pick up the phone and call one of the big dealers that specialize in Corvette sales. Take the money you saved in paying over MSRP, add the R8C Corvette Museum Delivery, and then enjoy a fantastic delivery experience when your new Corvette is ready. Many dealers will also ship cars directly to your door, or to your local dealership as a “courtesy” delivery so you have options there as well.
And may I add one more piece of advice for those wanting to buy a new 2020 Corvette? Don’t get stressed out during the order process! You’re buying a new Corvette and it should be one of the happiest moments in your life so try to enjoy it!
