Relative to year, I don't believe there is any measurable correlation between 'last of year' models and others.
ZCP is not unique to 2013.
Will a '13 have higher resale than a '09? Of course, it is a newer car. But a four year old '13 will trade at the same price point as a four year old '09, ceteris paribus.
IMHO of course.
