With that said I would think it will take the 15's being out for at least a couple of months before you really see the 'old model' discount. But its really a person to person thing. Some are saying that the 11-14's are better cars then the 15's so they will hold value although some like the 15's. So you may find someone trying to get more then the dealer will give them in for trade and be able to pick up one for a good price. Right now with the incentive Ford is offering on the remaining 14's people are having trouble selling 11-14's for what there worth.
Yeah you can get a brand new base model 14 for $27k-$29k out the door if you look. When someone is asking $22k for a 2011 that is a no brainer to go with the new car.
IMHO, handling guys are going to want the 2015 all the way and the 1/4 guys will probably like the 11-14s better unless the new IRS proves to be as durable as the SRA but I have a feeling its going to take a lot more $$$ to get the IRS up to par for 1/4 runs than it would for the SRA.
Like we all keep saying, time will tell and it'll take only a few months for the bigger names in the game to really get a handle on what the exact problem areas are and areas where it excels.
