Nine of the top 10 used vehicles most sought-after by shoppers — but not readily available on dealer lots — are sports cars, according to the latest Inventory Demand Index.
The Inventory Demand Index tracks the top 50 used vehicle searches on against actual inventory on dealer lots to help dealers determine which models to buy at auction and to better merchandise from their existing inventory. Dealers can obtain free copies of the national report or a report specific to their local market from their account executive.
"Our close connection with automotive shoppers positions to support our dealers with real-time market information," said Ralph Ebersole, training director at "Knowing the exact vehicle make and model that buyers want enables our dealers to make the well-informed business decisions that keep their inventory moving."
