    Yeah, that's not how that works….

    •  

      Yes, I realise that resale value over the past 2 years does not necessarily predict the next 2 years. I changed the text slightly to read that your car may only lose $3500.

        Look at this logically… say its mid 2020

        do you think you're going to get anyone to buy a 2018 q60 for $46k?

        the market for coupes isnt exactly bouyant besides the big time v8 sports coupes and here you have a 1,675kg 2.0 turbo four luxury Nissan…

        there's a reason these things arent selling at $62 and neither will they sell at $50

        protip: there is no such thing as a 2016 q60 so we have no historical data for how the q60 tracks

        however we do know how infiniti tracks on resale and its poor

        my opinion is that you will struggle to get $30k on this in 2020

        good luck out there or buy a v8 mustang

          The current Q60 went on sale in August 2016, so yes, there are 2016 build current shape Q60s available. We can also look at Carsales at previous generation Q60s to get some idea as well. I see a 2014 Q60 for $30k - that's 4 years old now, and one generation out of date. In 2 years time, the Q60 will still be in it's current generation, so you're going to get a lot more than $30k for it. In any case, the loss of value will be far less than if you forked out $75k on a BMW 4.

          you seem to have issues with the difference between asking price and sold price…

          in any case, thanks for the post, its interesting to see how poorly nissan are doing with this brand and i like nissan so

          @tonyjzx:

          Buying a V8 Mustang new, you will lose a lot. $65k new (on-road), many are now going for under $50k and only built in 2017. And the new 2018 model will be over $70k on road.

        • +16 votes

          of course you lose a lot, thats what buying a car is

          but with a mustang you have a great chance of actually selling your car in 2, 3, 5 yrs time because people acutally want a v8 mustang so your resale is actually better than normal

          no one wants a q60 now or 2, 3, 5 yrs from now so you can have all the 'estimates' you want like you're only losing $3k in 2yrs but find someone who actually wants a 155kW coupe

          your supposed $3k loss is a fairy tale

        • +3 votes

          @tonyjzx: to be fair that base engine is the Mercedes-Benz 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine with 155kW/350Nm

          there is also a twin turbo 3.0-litre V6 engine - 298kW at 6400rpm and 475Nm between 1600 and 5200rpm.

          @MrZ:
          i think people buy cars in these price brackets because they want a particular cars’ look, feel , etc …….you don’t buy them as investments, you don’t buy them as basic cheap transport, and you probabaly have some cash to splash, and if it’s for business or private use also determines costs ( my money or the companies money)

          the value you get will be based on if you keep it for 2 years (ouch) , 5 years , or 10 years …… the value at the end of that period , the longer you keep it the better you you get from it as after a while the. depreciation tapers off.

        •  

          @tonyjzx: I am with Tony on this. Infinity doesn't sell much, so less demand >> less price. Check how many Q60 is sold every month.

          No sane person will buy 2014 old generation Q60 for $30k.

          The discount represents 20% off RRP and you can haggle Audi to get 20% off anyway.

        •  

          @tonyjzx: Both rubbish car,How people acutally want a v8 mustang and no one wants a q60?

        • -2 votes

          @rave75:

          Depending on the model, 20% might be light. I've bought an A6 retailing at $153k for $102k, and an SQ5 retailing at $128k for $100k. And then there's stuff like the new R8 Plus, lolololol. Without even asking, shortly after launch I was offered $85k off retail, and I'd posit that you could now get one brand new for at least $100k off. Audi really do follow the Godfreys model of retailing.

        •  

          @dwarves: Come on man, no one pays $130k for an SQ5. It’s a $100k car on the road. They can pull all the option bullshit spin on you, but no one pays over $100k for one.

        Redbook isn't really a good reference. It also tells you that a 2017 Q60 is worth up to $49,000 and 2018 one $62,900. It's just a sort of calculation based on the price provided by manufacturer.

          No, Redbook says that a 2018 one is $62,900 new. They don't provide resale value for 2018 models yet because they're still too new to hit the 2nd hand market.

        • +20 votes

          @MrZ: See? They told you it's $62,900 new but you can actually get it for $49,888. And yet you still believe what it tells you.

        The sales figures are so dire , there is a very good chance that the brand may pull out of Australia all together , just like Saab and the very short lived Opel.

        If that happens the re sale value with fall through the floor , even further than it already has ……try selling a make and model of a car that doesn't exist anymore.

        I'm in the industry , and now almost NO ONE want's sedans or coup'es , nearly every car that's sold in Aus now is an SUV or a Ute , that only makes the situation for this vehicle.

        Also how peeved off would you be if you currently own one of these and did actually pay around 60K for one , the manufacturer has just shafted you , by a this 10 grand price cut , your car overnight is now instantly worth 10 grand less than it was yesterday.

    As a wildcard I suppose you could throw the Mustang Ecoboost into the mix, at $48,490 plus on-roads. With 233/432 it would blow all of these cars out of the water. But it's "luxury" features are somewhat laughable, fuel consumption poor, and resale not as strong. Plus there are no 2018 build Mustangs available - any being sold now were built last year.

      Well this deal is available to anyone until June 30, so I'm not sure why someone would pay more than the advertised price here. Your best bet I suppose would be buying now, and waiting until later in the year when the price goes back up. You could theoretically make a profit. For example, I see a few second hand Q60 GTs on Carsales being sold for $59,000. I doubt they'll get that price, though.

    • +6 votes

      I don't understand the negs for this. Anyone actually tried the Stinger? Test it for yourselves & see the quality of it compared to say a C Class Merc - not much difference imo - yes, even the interior (I think the stingers interior is better than my new cars plus the fact it's a 4.5s twin turbo car). I was torn a couple of months ago between this but eventually went with the Merc (badge respect sadly - yes I belong to OzB).

      As to the Inifiniti - I looked at it but (and I'm a very big GTR fan) couldn't justify spending so much with resale value being so poor + build quality looked just the same as standard Nissan.

      However the fact it's got the same (better) Merc engine & drivetrain is a huge boost - Infiniti just needs to get it's act together in terms of interior features & layout.

      If the Stinger had been released when I bought the Skoda Superb 206 AWD I would have seriously considered it. The Skoda lists at $62k.

    •  

      I tested a fugly grey Stinger v6; wasn't impressed, OK in sports mode but still felt big and disconnected. I know the reviews are good, but I'm holding out for the Genesis G70… I still have concerns about the ground clearance and Sydney roads.

        yep, we have people buying expensive whisky ($200+) and wines (100+) ….. that is instant depreciation , drink it and pee it out.

        it’s about getting what you want at the cheapest price , and not always about a substitute.

        a friend of mine has a lexus, i have a bmw , just different tastes.

        she liked the tech in the lexus, i liked the availability of aftermarket parts of the bmw ….depends what people’s priorities are, i service my own car she takes hers to the stealer for a service ….

    Have a Q50S in the family, great car however would point out resale on these is terrible and incredibly slow. For 50k this is definitely quite cheap but I’d personally be getting something else.
