Sure! A new M7 - currently available - costs $4550. I bought mine used in perfect shape for $1500. High serial # too.
The M240 is still a current production model. $6600 to $7000 at BH Photo video. Used, $3000-ish.
Same thing will happen to the M10 once the waiting list has been fulfilled. I think Leica intentionally under produces to create the anticipation for the product and thus justifies the price tag.
"The waiting list is 4 months long, it must be worth $6800!.."
