    12-15k dealer markups for the new cobras are rediculas. Id be driving one right now if it wasnt for it. :madfawk: Im willing to pay the 40k msrp but 60k+ is just stupid for a stang. Any ideas on why they think they can get away with that much of a price jump?

    they got for MSRP around here :dunno:

    IMO ford should keep an eye on dealer markups, that one of the reasons the Ford GT got axed, nobody was willing to pay $40-50k markup that alot of dealers were charging.

    Isn't this the same shit that managed to trip up the GTO? Dealers squeezing out as much as they could in markups?

    At sticker or at markup?

    They sit because they are free advertising for dealerships. Hook a potential customer with a flashy ride and suddenly they are perusing your used lot and signing papers.

    Dealers have been marking cars up for years. The Viper, PT Cruiser, STi, GTO, ZR1, Z06... and the list will continue to grow.

    I have never paid sticker for a car let alone paid a dealer mark-up.
