Are resale values @ their best now or when the last 2022 is made?
I feel the chip shortage has made the resale more valuable now than for after the 2022's are finished.

I think this shortage will not be long term. Eventually we will get back to standard ops and the car market will correct itself.

Yes, totally agree. It will even out within 12 months.

I believe things will be back to normal by next summer too. Not buying any vehicles until then.

I agree. What I am saying is the resale value is probably more now than it will be when all the 22’s are produced only because of the current shortage. Once things are back to normal, the values will reset to normal.

Lot of people are panic buying in all segments of the sports car market which is crazy. Some of my Ferrari guys and I are laughing at the really dumb purchases at way over value. It's going to calm down and when it does, some people aren't going to be happy with the prices they paid. No one seems to remember that this has happened before and each time it doesn't end well. lol.

ADMs have always been controversial. The people who can afford to pay them and want the car no matter what will be fine. The people who are buying thinking this is the new norm that have some kind of expectation of future value will be severely disappointed.

Back to what I said a while ago, its a great car, but I didn't and wouldn't pay any more than I did for it. The 20K and 30K crowd better not expect to ever see any part of that money down the road. I feel that way because I am value oriented. I am well off, but I value money and don't throw it away unnecessarily. For people with large amounts of disposable cash, it doesn't matter because it is small potatoes. Avg Joe reaching into his pocket for an extra $20-$30K above a price he could barely afford is a whole other story.

Totally agree. I put a value that I would pay 5K over for a CFTP and that was it. Got it and I'm happy. This isn't my be all to end all car, its a DD. Same as yourself, to me 20k-30K ADM is koo koo land.

A manufacturer can’t just ”drop” a motor into any given platform. Doesn’t work that way in modern cars and regulation. Let alone size weight, fitting inside the chassis This isn’t Hot Rod Magazine 1995. Supply chains, physical production lines, testing, etc etc etc. The massive amount of money then that it takes to add a new engine. The 7.3 is never happening. Ford is putting its resources into the future and that will be hybrid and electric power plants augmented by turbos. Sad but true.
No matter how hard EV is pushed by politicians in the US and automakers try to adjust to it, mass adoption will never be viable until our national electric grid can actually support it. California, arguably the biggest proponent of EV, can't even get through one summer without rolling blackouts; forget about adding millions of charging electrics to the grid. Renewables won't support it and the EV visionaries are tart on fossil fuel and nuclear plants. I can see hybrid as a transition technology in the interim because we are many decades away from full EV adoption, maybe longer. Our infrastructure needs a massive overhaul before that can even begin to happen.

That's why GM will be all electric by 2035, Ford is putting most of it's development funding into electric and hybrid, Lamborghini will be all hybrid and electric by 2025, Porsche and Ferrari are going to be 40% electric......you may not like it, but it's coming fast and the car companies are already putting the majority of their dollars towards it.
