So many Ford dealers still have brand new 2017s on their lots & in many cases the cars have been sitting there for 500+ days. I really love the White or Slate Grey RS. I wonder how much, if any, off the MSRP Ford dealers are willing to go to move the 2017s.

They are paying a flooring charge unless the dealer actually owns it....

In a lot of cases, dealers buy specialty cars like that, just to leave them in the showroom and/or park them out front. They generate buzz/traffic for the lot, and then the dealer knows it can be easily sold later.

When the previous gen of Camaro's ended (2001?), I remember the local dealer having a new one sitting on his lot with a "last one" line handwritten on the sticker. They added $2K on top of the sticker. He was in no rush to sell it.

Figure on depending on how you drive & then tack on its a high stick/friction tire for performance cars....You wouldn't want to down grade tires for sure......

I sure wish I could rent an RS for a day to figure out if I like it or not, before spending 30k+, but I donít see anywhere in SoCal that rents them? I just donít feel like a 10min test drive with a salesperson bugging me is enough, especially after watching all the mixed reviews on YouTube about the suspension & seats.
