It's hilarious how many dealers are asking as much $10k over MSRP, when you can find them all over the country for $4-6k under.

Are people really this stupid/lazy they would pay $10k over, vs a plane ticket and a drive home?
There's a dealer near me that still has the same black launch edition with the red mirrors at 10k markup. It was delivered right at the beginning of Supra deliveries and has just been sitting there ever since. I go there every few months to pick up an oil filter for my Tacoma and I haven't seen a single Supra there besides that unit since it arrived.

Some dealerships just don't care. They don't want to waste time entertaining/haggling with an enthusiast when they can unload minivans and crossovers in a fraction of the effort.

I don't get it personally. Toyota dealerships make their money based on volume sales and selling multiple Supra's at modest profits should be worth it to them over trying to get ADM and not selling any. Seems lazy to me.

I post this article every time this topic comes up. Only because this has happened to me so many times that I knew there was something wrong with me and why car salesman appear to hate me. I've since changed my buying strategy for new cars and this article has helped me to do that:

Is it fair? No, but it's the reality of things and if you adapt a little, you'll end up in the car you want for a little less of a discount than you were hoping for and a lot less frustration.

With the rebates, economy rebounding and stimulus checks I wonder if they can move 12,000 units a year.

The beauty of internet and texts. I've bought my last few cars without actually talking to humans until I had to pick the car up. It's nice.

As someone who has bought a fair number of new cars from dealers, this is precisely it.

I know years ago at 28? When I ordered a '13 Mustang GT Track Pack. I went by the dealership to test drive one. And indicated I was interested in a base with that package, nothing they had on the lot.

I called the salesman back the next day and said, "You're location is convenient for me both from home and work. I want this car, this color, these package, these options. Call me back with a good number and I'll be there in 15 minutes to give you a $1000 deposit so we can get it ordered."

He called me back about a half an hour later, 10% of MSRP, and I went and gave him a deposit. I lucked out and my car only took 6 weeks instead of 12-14 weeks to be delivered.



The dealer with that one still marked up $10k. I wonder how much it's cost him on floor plan because of lazy salesman.
