Not really you have to try different things. Luckily I'm in a GT3 so will be hopefully able to keep up with 458 prices by the 911 going up by a similar amount.

Do you not think there is a price point at which they cannot go over.
For example most of the buyers for supercars are chasing the 1 to 3 Yr old cars and I'm quite sure also most are pcp ING the purchase. Whereas buyers of older supercars are less likely financing to rlsame percentage leverage if at all.

If you say so.
I say that as an ex owner! Will be looking for another one soon. There are loads less cars around than there was when I bought my last one. They are peak car and are underpriced. Its only just starting to dawn....

The market will always dictate but there have been some eyewatering sums changing hands for 458s. Luckily for me they are mainly undriveable ones with too low miles for my useage. The "driver" market has gone up a bit but not as acutely as the top end.

330k for an 800 miler. Can’t decide if that’s laughably stupid or realistic.

Truly laughable.

Especially having regard to the vendor.

guys do you think should we rush now and get 458 or wait a bit more..

I get that people say it is the last v8 NA but the price gap between 458 and 812 getting smaller. I mean I would never say no to 812 next to 458 and anyone who says no is definetly biased. So the buyers like me may shift to 812 if 458 goes crazy.

Additionally, the interior and exterior conditions are getting worse and worse. Almost all the 458s I have checked had maybe 12 months life rest in their seats, probably many of yours too ( but you wont say anyways). I am an upholsterer, so the interior retrim isnt that costly for me but so far I could not use it as a discount medium.

What do you guys think?

You can’t compare the two.

One’s a front engine V12 and the other a V8 mid engine.

You either want a 458 or 812 (F12)

F12 is closer in price to a 458….?

Get an 812 if 458’s are getting worse and worse although if you are also a guy who can fix the exterior problems you are seeing then you are on a winner

Last time I looked an 812 was way into 200k+ but I’m not seeing any 458s anywhere near that sort of pricing?

I have both 812 & 458, totally different cars & totally different prices points. They are not comparable.

Both low mileage so interior is fine.

I might also find a good deal on that but depends on the situation at that time. To a point, it would be great to find a unrecorded cat d , repair, respray and ppf it.

Btw there is 30-40k difference between similiar mileage 458 and 812, that is what I meant. I know their difference but can't think someone likes 458 does not like 812.

You must be looking at some bad examples, my 458 passed 25,000 miles this weekend, the interior still looks brand new, even the drivers seat shows little to no wear.

458 and 812 are not comparable, go drive them both, one is a hardcore GT and is an animal, the other is a more planted mid-engined supercar and feels smaller on the road. Both are incredible but for me I could not trade my 458 for an 812 I would need to own both cars side by side.

A decent 458 Italia is 140-160k, a decent 812 is around 250k, quite a price difference.
