I Stopped at my Dealer Today

They did not have much there. Only one SuperAmerica, three 430s, a couple of 575s, and a couple of 550s were for sale. I asked how much for the 430 convertible (spider). He said it had 650 miles and was only $100,000 over MSRP. Gee, the seller was losing money. He paid $120,000 over MSRP.

I ask, “Are not the dealerships unhappy about flippers?”

“No,” he said, “as long as they sell them thru the dealership.”

Oh!

People that buy a car at MSRP and then sell soon after for a significant price over MSRP.
Ex. buying an Enzo for $650,000 and then selling it for, oh, $1,200,000.
