Fast depreciation is always a concern. However, my bigger concern is that the C8 is a First Year Car.  At GM, that means the first persons who buy this Vette will be the "testers".  They'll find out all those big and little things that tend to go wrong.  Some will be minor, some will be major and some things will be problems over the life of ownership.  Saw one advertised on-line for $90K with less than 6,000 miles and 9 (CarFax stated) services!  I'll be patient and see what happens.
