They wouldn’t be doing it if they weren’t making money. I think what it comes down to is they buy them whenever and where-ever there available. Time will be on there side with these cars.


Man I love that spec.

Hate to see the dealers buying and flipping these cars. At least with a collector there is a chance they will drive the car some.

With a 95k bid that places the total price to 100k with fees. I don't understand what dealers are trying to accomplish by trying to flip it right away. There is no money to be made at that price. These cars are a great buy and hold ATM.

Maybe im partial because i own a 2019 but i also think the 2019s will be valued a step above the 16 to 18 cars because of the gen 2 voodoo... although i personally would have no problem buying a 16 to 18 if I had found the right one...

Something to also factor in in regards to 350R total production numbers and future value. It is of some peoples opinion that the total build total of 3,611 is too high and therefore will never be collectable. Here are a couple counters to that.

#1. There are other cars with similar build totals that have become very collectable. 2005 - 06 Ford GT, the 2018 Demon and the 2019 Corvette ZR1 comes to mind recently. So we already know it's possible.

#2. Unlike those cars above, the GT350R has different tiers of value from within. For example, a 2016 GT350R with 500 miles is going for around 75k. A 2020 R in the same spec and miles is going for 25k higher. I expect this trend to continue.

Here are the top 3 tiers currently,
1. 2015 R (37 built)
2. 2020 Heritage R (281 built)
3. 2020 R (422 built, with 4 colors that are one year only)

Eventually the Base R's will be in the mix, so I will add them as well. There was 135 Base R's built. Subtract the 6 made in 2015 and your left with 129 built between 2016 and 2018.

Add all of those up and you get..... 869 cars, which is not a lot. 869 is a more focused number vs 3,611. It's the 869 R's that are going to be the most sought after. The 2016 to 2019 cars will continue to rise in value as well, but the market will be set and reset by the those 869 cars.
Interesting take, but might be a while for those Base Rs to take off. Time will tell. Don't get me wrong, they are rare and hope they do take off. When they do come up, they don't sell well. We've all seen the auctions. Unless the miles are low, but that goes for any R, or car for that matter.

Example similar to your list: '14-'15 Camaro Z28. Most were ordered with the AC/Radio added back on. Sure the delete is rarer, but if there were 2 for sale, spec'd identical with same mileage, most would go for AC/Radio for creatures comforts vs saving 50+ pounds of weight.

If I sell my '20 R, a Base R would be the only replacement. I still want one.

Cars build to be driven fast and hard, that 90% of them will never turn a wheel in anger, Sad really.

Yea it's going to take a while for Base cars to take off. But at the end of the day in the hands of a hardcore collector who's not going to drive the car much, or at all, having AC doesn't really matter.

And that's because nobody respects your opinion or cares for you around here. That would explain the crickets. Congrats, that's usually the first indicator that you've made everyone's ignore list.

Context of the written word is lost on you.

Correct. Of the 135, I think there were only about 125 available to the public. Several of the base Rs were TT, PP, etc and used as engineering and evaluation cars. Not all of the 135 were released to the public.

I think you are correct about the base R perception. Down the road, they will be more sought after. They were built in the spirit of what the R stands for, the most track focused of all the GT350s built by Ford.

Mine sits in the garage and goes out every so often. The other cars get driven, but the reason I don't take it out much is because I completely agree with your perception.
