Just out of curiosity, What would you do? If you could get a hellcat from a dealership that has been allocated 1 Hellcat and you can get the car for invoice plus doc. fee, dealer prep and TT&L. No other dealer in the area will be getting one within 50 miles. If you could get the car, would you consider reselling it for a profit,or just keep it. Just kinda wondering what the percentage of peoples thoughts would be as to make money or keep.

You're going to be able to buy the car from the dealer, take it off the lot and then immediately turn around and sell it privately for a profit as a "used" car? Maybe i'm not understanding the scenario but that doesn't seem likely. Even if you were able to find a buyer, your profit would probably not be worth the hassle IMO. I'd much rather have a Hellcat than a few extra grand in my pocket.

Tax alone is gonna sting you $3-5000 or so depending on your local rate, plus the other fees, so you've go to convince someone to spend $6-8000 more than invoice if you plan to make anything at all for your troubles.
And why would a dealer sell to you at invoice?? There's gonna be dealers out there willing to do trades for more money than that.

Going onto it with the idea of flipping is a bit risky. If you can use the car as a business vehicle, the Section 179 write off mitigates that risk a bit because with a little effort, you could likely sell the vehicle for close to MSRP in the early part of next year if needed.

A hellcat is not +6000# GVWR - and you would still be taxed the following year for the sale, as there is no basis from a section 179 elected asset
