I talk to one friend of mine who's in the auto sales racket and he says its painfully slow; however, I just got off the horn with a dealer friend of mine who's selling luxury wares and he tells me that they're doing a remarkable amount of business.
And, he's not just blowing smoke.
While picking up a special piece of kit today there were deliveries going on up the wazoo.
That said, let's see if you KNEW who were the movers and shakers this past May.
Newly launched sports cars from Subaru and Toyota, fuel-sipping hybrids and the usual suspects were among the fastest-selling vehicles in May, according to Edmunds.com's analysis.
Just on sale, the Subaru BRZ and Toyota's Scion FR-S, in that order, topped Edmunds.com's list of quickest-selling vehicles in May. The list is based on Edmunds.com's calculation of days-to-turn; that is, the number of days a vehicle sits at the dealership before it is sold. The BRZ took a scant four days to sell; the FR-S only five days. In other words, their tires barely hit the pavement before someone drove them home. By comparison, industry wide, it took an average of 53 days to sell a vehicle.
