How so? Not an accounting nerd but short-term cap gains is maybe 37% worst case? That's still >$6k ahead for basically getting to play with a fun car for a year. More than a year and I believe it then becomes a long term cap gain, which is more like 15%-20% or less. Very few cars I've ever owned go up in value and I typically get hosed so this is a nice bonus.Your scenario gets completely demolished by the gains taxes you'd pay selling-off at the higher prices today. Any perceived profits would be washed by tax expenses realized when you sold. And I'm not foreseeing a 30% drop in the current market. If it happens it happens, but I'm not taking that wager.
Not selling - I don't think I will - but I very well could wake up one morning and be over it. Not like it hasn't happened before.
