In the good old days, Bring A Trailer was an email list with cool project cars for sale. Then it became an auction site for cool and unique vehicles, and then one Prime Minister auction site with only the best, hand-picked listings. Now it seems to be entering a new phase of its life: A site where you can sell new cars you just bought for a huge profit. Welcome to Suckers Slides. Let’s see who paid too much this week.

1988 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 16V – $ 29 001

NADA Value: $ 4,475

These classic GLIs are more interesting than their book values ​​would suggest. These perfect boxy bodies, high-speed four-cylinder and timeless mesh wheels provide a combination that is hard to say no to. At least that would be, at a reasonable price.

To begin with, this does not appear to be an immaculate GLI. Despite the accident-free history report, the car’s hood definitely does not match the front fenders, and the door hinges are dark brown from rust. For so much money, for such an old Volkswagen, it should at least be untouched.

1992 Nissan Sentra SE-R – $ 33,500

Kelley Blue Book Value: $ 2,566

This Sentra SE-R sold for over thirteen times book value. Yes, that explains the low mileage. I guess clean, affordable enthusiast cars are dead, and everything costs thirty thousand bucks now. I’m going to throw myself into the sea.

1979 Ford Bronco – $ 37,000

Hagerty Value: I’m afraid to tell Hagerty about this vehicle for fear that The Powers That Be will cause me to be murdered for attacking their minds. I’m just a humble messenger, but I’m still afraid.

I like Taco Bell as much as the next guy. Sometimes all you want in a meal is to have a bunch of vaguely Mexican-inspired, completely unrelated foods mixed together into a sickly, delicious Doritos Locos Cheesy Gordita Quesarito. Unfortunately, the ancient culinary art of getting unreasonably stoned and thinking new food combinations works a little less well on cars.

This poor classic Bronco seems to have its exterior slathered in aftermarket Jeep parts while its interior has the dashboard like a Mini and the amenities like a boat. The random supply of hardware that holds the fenders together will haunt me in my dreams, but still someone paid almost forty thousand for the benefit of owning the terrain panel’s worst panel assembly.

1960 Fiat 600 Multipla – $ 52,250

Hagerty value: $ 46,900 for a 1961 model in Concours condition, Hagerty strangely omits 1960 for Multiples

The classic Fiat Multipla is really one friend-shaped car. Just imagine this little guy rolling around, dutifully pushing people around like an episode of an Italian spinoff of Old enough. I will protect it, I want to see it grow healthy and I will tell my friends and neighbors about it, but I will not pay $ 52,250 for it.

After all, this Multipla is a novelty. It is much less likely to be used as a daily driver than to be stored in a garage, sometimes taken out for a car show or a detail session. This poor friend, trapped alone inside because it’s too expensive to actually risk using. Free him.

1991 Saab 900 SPG – $ 57,000

NADA value: $ 12,550

A Saab 900 Turbo, more specifically the convertible, has long been on my list of dream cars to own. This 900 SPGcomplete with tri-spoke wheels, is an even better performer on the streets – but if it speeds up the performance at the auction, I do not know if my wallet will keep up a few Saab.

Rising prices often lift all boats on auction sites, due to the concept of price anchoring. People who surf BaT see a 900 SPG sell for $ 57,000, and suddenly that price is stuck in their head. By that measure, a basic 900 Turbo for $ 35,000 is quite frankly steal – even though it’s still too expensive.

2007 GMC Sierra 2500HD SLE Crew Cab Duramax 4 × 4 – $ 67,000

NADA Value: $ 23,650

What a twist. Instead of a Ford diesel truck from the late 90s to early variety, today we have one from GM. Instead of a standard Sierra, this 2500 HD seems to be a classic model, which means it is the same GMT800 truck that was introduced back in 1998 and sold 24 years later for $ 67,000. I wish I was joking.

I get appeals from red 2500 pickups from the 90’s, I really do. But finding one that was outdated when it was built, and paying new truck money for it so many years later, is a buying process that I can not understand. You can not use it for Truck Stuff, because you will refuel the value, but its value is entirely based on its theoretical ability to make Truck Stuff. It is so joke gun in Little Tina’s wonderlandreal.

2001 Chevrolet Corvette Cabriolet 1953-2003 Commemorative Edition – $ 97,000

Hagerty Value: These Commemorative Edition Corvettes do not appear to have their own book values

I’m taking back everything bad I’ve ever said about the Catfish Camaro. This unofficial anniversary edition Corvette borrows the car’s unloved grille, but gives the light chrome braces as part of a comprehensive retro design. It’s like one mirror universe Mitsuokathe evil twin of the modern retro car manufacturer.

Wealth in the United States is overwhelmingly concentrated in the hands of Baby Boomersbut they do not have to spend it on this. For $ 97,000, they could get anything else. Anything else. Also several other things. It is almost impossible to do worse than this Corvette.

2022 GMC Hummer EV Pickup Edition 1 – $ 275,000

RRP: 110 295 USD

Wouldn’t it be nice to buy a car just to immediately sell it for over double what you paid? This Hummer seller lived the dream and bought one absolutely bass-specific Edition 1 Hummer EV and get enough pure profit from the deal to pay for another.

My own thoughts on Hummer EV aside, this deal seems to be a bad investment for the buyer. Demand for this truck is huge, of course, but it will not exactly replace the Camry as everyone’s daily driver. Supply will continue to rise as demand stagnates or declines. At the end of the day, they will be left with an electric truck to host something, but not at all what they paid.

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6 – $ 470 000

Hagerty value: $ 405,000 in Concours condition

This 1994 911 Turbo is without a doubt the Peak Porsche. It was the last gasp of the classic 964 chassis, the best it ever performed before being hit by the 993 body. It is painted Guards Red, the classic Porsche color, and its immaculate condition means that the turbocharged engine can still do each of its original 335 horsepower. But, just like Multiple, God help you if you experience any of its driving dynamics.

This Porsche has a hard-wired battery connection, designed to keep it drivable while sitting for extended periods. It was bought by a previous owner just to sit and now it was bought by another to do the same. It’s now art, admittedly wonderful art, but it can no longer functionally be called one car.

2021 Ferrari SF90 Stradale – $ 772 000

MSRP: $ 584,798, now from $ 625,000

Again, we have new cars that are sold for more on Bring A Trailer than they cost at the dealer. With this Ferrari, but there is an extra level of insidiousness on tap. Since new Ferrari purchases are so limited, the brand expects hopeful buyers to already own previous models from Maranello. Paying for the above sticker for a used car can be only way to get into the company’s good graces, just to buy a future car on MSRP.

This is probably not the case intention when a late model of Ferrari was put up for auction, but the one who paid almost $ 200,000 over the sticker for this car is now a Ferrari owner in the company’s eyes. They now get a level of acceptance from the brand, and may like to buy future models. Was it worth the cost?
