We have Sold every one we have recieved within a week. Most of them never hit the showroom floor. We have sold 10 to this point and have two that are close to being sold. One of those is still on the boat. These are niche cars and are highly specialized vehicles. I am very proud of my sales staff for putting in the time and effort to learn about these cars and how to sell them. The IS-F is definately a different beast than most Lexus sales people are used to selling.
Andy, you sound very knowlegeble about these vehicles and I'm sure that is a major reason why your store is also successful selling them too.
These vehicles are selling and alot it has to do with your area as far as how much has sold.In the southeast we sold every one that comes in, only one sat for a two weekes.Because they're limited edtions I seriously doubt the price is gonna come down from the MSRP.Gas has little to do with it too,if people want it they'll buy it.Look at the new I-phone, it's over $200 and there's a line out the door!!----what poverty??? The rich gets richer and the poor get poorer.
Yes, the red and silver are not as high in production because those colors, Lexus figures, are not "high" sellers..especially for the "F" line.They wanted the blue as the signature color that's why it's all in the stitching and on the emblems, and black and smokey granite are popular and there just has to be a white vehicle (there will always be white on a vehicle).
Why introduce a middleman into the equation? Strike your best deal at your favorite Lexus dealer, we have "The Event" sale going on right now. Adding a lease company who is going to buy from the dealer anyway and charge you for the privilege is not best way to go IMHO.
the dealership around me has probably 2 right now left, but they were demos i think because they are kinda beaten up people jacking the F symbols and also cracking the keyless entry piece off and shit, mad people are such cheap ass for stealing those things, but 2 i believe they have left and 1 that the general manager has lol but prices should probably go down in another month or two i was talking to the sales guy i know thats a good friend
