A friend has a 2019 Touring with 12,000 miles-good condition. Rear end bearing fixed-up on all recalls. Price about 25,000. The local dealer(60 miles away) will order a 2022 model S-standard for $ 24,375.00 out the door price. I am leaning toward the 2022 model S because it is new. I also want to do my own mods. Pros and cons. thanks Jim

I personally think the price on the 2019 a little high. If you like doing lots of the work to make it our own, buy new and maybe extend the warrantee (those prices are very negotiable).

Thanks guys: There only two slingshots for sale within 100 miles, both 2017s and both going for about 23,000-24,000. We had 3 dealers-now none. The 2019 maybe high but used are going for high prices. That said I believe the 2022 is the way to go-Jim

Look for a low mile 2016-2019.
Don't forget the 2015! Personally, I would not go any higher than $15,000 for any used SlingShot and I am not familiar enough with the Gen 2 SlingShots to offer advice with purchasing new, other than the distance to the dealer for that new SlingShot would be a very definite decision point, since dealers are growing more rare all the time.

If you want automatic, or like warranty, then I'd lean towards a new 2022. If you want to save a little $$, and like the fact most mods are available for the '15-19's then go for an older model. You can't really go wrong with either decision. More mods are becoming available for the '20-22's so that's exciting too. Be careful of the idea of buying a base model S and upgrading - sometimes starting with an SL is a better $$ choice. :sneaky:

If I could afford a new Slingshot, I'd prefer a 2020 or 2021 S model with manual transmission and the Performance Tune to get R model performance at significantly less cost. If I wanted the AutoDrive, I'd still go with the S model with AutoDrive, Performance Tune and Paddle Shift option. Max performance, with the ability to control shifting much better than the stock AutoDrive and still leaves money left over for a custom stereo setup.
If you want to add either a supercharger or turbo, then the 2015-2019 Slingshots are the way to go since I haven't seen any boost kits for the 202+ slingshots.

Who and where is your dealer that will order a 2022 at that price?
