I'm not sure how I feel about this. lol

I mean, Larry's got every right to list his used Z for however much he wants. And if he was willing to pay $70k for one, then that was his perogative.... but sheeesh.

Though I guess he coulda done a lot worse than $70k new - if that was out the door.

I came to post something like this as well.

There is one here in Canada already. It’s the first used one asking $80,000 CDN with 500KMs on it. Guess , he took delivery and took it for a quick drive and put it on autotrader.

Good luck selling that at that price…..

A friend of mine was told by a dealer in Canada that Nissan is forcing customers to finance the car through them for a minimum of one year, supposedly to prevent flipping. Sounds like BS to me. BTW, he was quoted over $85,000CAD out-the-door for a performance model.

Yes, I heard this too! I just secured mine and he said I would need to sign for it. But all the documents I signed off but didn’t send that one.

Nissan apparently didn’t want their car to be like the C8s.

To be honest, the Z was poised to be the Japanese C8 market wise but thing cooled off, Nissan dropped the ball, Toyota pulled a manual out of BMW's asses.

I'll admit, I was going to buy 2 of them and flip one.

As someone going through the process right in Canada, I can say this is true for proto models. I have access to my own financing, however Nissan is requiring the dealer to keep a $1 lean on the car for 1 year to prevent resale. I also have to sign a waiver with Nissan Canada that I am not allowed to export the car for one year.

I guess a $1 lien isn't the end of the world if it settles the flipping down. Other finance only arrangements sound like they would skew the financials for people looking to make a cash purchase. Of course, flipping would be a non issue if Nissan could actually produce cars to meet even a basic level of demand.

I was okay with it because I intend to keep the car for a long time anyway. Again I believe these extra requirements are for protos only. Unclear how many protos are actually coming to Canada.
