Right by me... When i was shopping in 2019, i found a black '14 st1 with 4,000 miles at a dealer in Cleveland for 17,999 if memory serves. I wonder if this is the same car.

Amazing how some of these cars have such low miles. Great find for someone.

I'm glad these cars are holding value. I have a 2017 Race Red base ST with like 13,000 miles and wondering if get close to 20K for it which would be awesome since I only paid 21,500 for it new.

I'm really wondering if the fact that Ford walked away from the market somehow helped ours with value?

The only other viable options now are: Hyundai Velocitor or the Honda Civic Type-R (at $40k !!)

That said: I'd love to see Ford bring these back one day.

Just wait for gas to crest $4.00/gal. And watch how fast they bring 'cars' back.
I'm guessing that we are going to see those prices sooner rather than later.

Well the really sad part is they will probably be electric unless they can move faster.

Electric wouldn't bother me. Electric cars are super torquey and a ton of fun. (Just please don't call an electric SUV a Mustang).

Two things that are inevitable.
1) Electric cars will become the norm.
2) Self driving cars will be the norm.

When? Don't know ... but I don't think it's far off.

Enjoying my drivers car now......

I'll get one, as soon as they start giving them away...

We’re currently paying the equivalent of $6.15 per US gallon, here in the U.K. and climbing, but what you have to remember, we pay 75% tax on our road fuel, so the actual cost of fuel without the tax is pretty low.

Our $1.99 (for 87 octane) is highly taxed too...I paid $2.69 for premium yesterday.

Gonna enjoy my ST as long as possible before getting a big golf cart, yes I've ridden in a Tesla. 🙄☹

I think lawmakers should pay at least double the fuel taxes they add. 😁
I suppose it's better than tolls everywhere to pay for the roads, tho 😕

We can’t get 87octane here, the minimum we can get is 95, premium or as we call it super unleaded, is 97-99, so at least we get good fuel I guess.

The octane is calculated differently; our 89, 91, 93 is equivalent to your 95, 97, 99 if I'm not mistaken. 87 is for your Prius.

You wait ... Once the money grubbing politicians realize that they aren't getting the gas taxes anymore due to fuel efficiencies and electrified cars, they will find a way to charge us some other way, perhaps by miles driven.

... and yes, that will suck.

Gas tax will shift to wattage tax.

I did wonder if that was the case, there is 101 available from BP, but at very few filling stations, mostly at race tracks, Silverstone for example.

We can get 100 at some stations; sold as "race gas", at triple the cost of 93
