I was wondering what you guys would think the ST will be worth after you drive it off the lot. Let's say i got the ST2 package and OTD price was 26000. Would the car be worth like 19000 2 months later. My 2011 fusion lost 5 grand after like 3 months. Or since it's a more rare car it wont lose value so fast.

All new cars lose quite a bit of value immediately after buying. It's just the way it works. There are some economy type cars that are in high demand right now that don't lose quite as much though. If the ST really takes off and there is a shortage after they sell what they sell for the 2013 model year, they may hold their value well for year 1 anyway.

If you're worried about resale value you could always buy an econobox Toyota :D

Heck, my little Honda after 8 years only lost about $6,000 in value (bought it slightly used). Not too shabby.
