All kidding aside, no I would not, but then again, I don't NEED my D300 but I want it, like it, use it and enjoy it.
What is important to me though is that Nikon gives clear signs of continuing to support a pro-level DX line-up.
I actually laughed out loud because I am the biggest consumer I know - so yeah I would probably buy a D500 in two years.
I have to think Nikon is planning on a real D300s replacement for 2 reasons,
1. the D600 although a more affordable full frame, does not have what it takes for sports shooters, especially with the 39 point center cluster of AF points.
2. The D7100 is great, but, it is missing some key points - 6 fps isn't enough for a lot of sports and wildlife shoots, and the buffer is just silly. I mean I understand keeping it tamed down so they have room to improve the the real D400, but a 1 second burst. lmao at how ridiculous that decision was - plus, sitting here holding it next to my D700 it is quite obviously not a pro build. Im not saying it isn't built well, and being lite is a good thing, but with no quick af control switch, and the lack of a top of the dial ISO button it just isn't on the same level.
Nikon would be making a big mistake if at some point very soon they did not update the D300s IMO
