G8 GT in spring

Pretty new to buying a car myself, will be my first. I want a G8 GT in the spring and wondering how much they will depreciate by then.

Looking for a G8 gt with at least the heated leather(I think thats the premium package). And preferably under 20K miles. Seems like that is around $25k private party, or like $27k from a dealer right now, based on autotrader and on here over the past few months.

I am guessing not many people will be selling through the winter, but in the spring how much less can i expect them to go for? I would buy now, but really no need to. Not as much fun in the winter(well maybe donuts in the snow) and I don't feel like buying winter tires right away.

If anything, I expect the prices to rise. GT's were going for 2-3k less than they are now during spring of 2009 when GM had all those incentives going on.

You should be able to find one for roughly 26k in the spring. I'm going to be doing the exact same thing you will, though hopefully I'm going to get an early start (march-april, just after all the snow melts).

I would expect prices will probably go up also. Its a summer car. There will be more demand come spring.

I'm in NJ and got my Panther Black GgGT premium pkg with 14K miles at an even 26k from Trend Motors 5/2010 .... a VW dealer. I want a Camaro SS but the best I can do with that is still north of 30k.

Yeah, I was in the same boat, I figured that they would go up. So, I found the one that I wanted, haggled a bit and drove it home. I would try and buy it around mid-March and I would say you would still get "winter pricing".
