    Luxury car sales tend to drop first before a recession, most of the luxury brands were down over 10%.  Mercedes has product shortage and some models phased out for the model year change so I think this is temporary, I think they’ll have a big 2019 with new GLB, GLE and GLS because people want those SUVs.

      But. You can see the market starting to turn and the tarrif impacts are probably just now coming into play.  GM said they are raising prices on 2019 models because of it, higher prices usually don’t mean higher sales.

    Economy I think is getting ready to head the other way.

    Any market that sees Lincoln loose market share is A OK with me, actually.

    As @Drew Dowdell and I have stated, we are headed for a recession and correction in the market.

    I also believe there is more to this than just product shortages and changing of models as you fall back on always when sales do not top everyone else or stay in Positive growth mode. There are many reasons for MB to break up the company into stand alone divisions. 

    As the old idiom goes, every dog has their day and I think we are in for a changing of the Top dog in the Auto Industry. Who that will be I am not sure, but I would not bet out American or Asian auto companies from replacing German as some of the best if not the best in the world again.

    I would still bet on Mercedes being the #1 selling luxury car maker in the USA and World at the end of 2018, and I think they will repeat that in 2019 with the new A-class line (A sedan, CLA, GLA, etc) and GLB because that will hit penetrate that $30-45k segment of the market.  They also have new GLE and GLS hitting next year.

    The long term success depends on how quickly they can roll out electric cars at prices that are reasonable.  The Tesla Model 3 outsold the Ford Fusion last month, it is sucking up huge market share in the $40-50k sedan space.  That is where the treat to luxury makers is coming from.

    They have to fill those orders and turn a profit though.

    Tesla is probably not going to have profit until 2019.   But if they can get production straightened out and the orders filled, the cash will follow.  They have the product demand in place and loyal customer base.

    LOL : Tesla lost three-quarters of  BILLION in Q2 2018- unlikely they can turn a profit that soon.
    They made no money on the S and X, now they're merely building MORE copies of an even MORE upsidedown margin vehicle.

    Amazon lost money in 2014, how are they doing today?  The Model 3 is in the top 10 selling cars now, and Tesla is still a mess, they could make huge market gains.  They could also go bust, but I seem to think they will start selling 250,000 Model 3's a year and once they get a crossover version they'll sell 250,000 of those too.

    In the 56 quarters since 2004, Amazon has turned a profit in 49 quarters.
    In the 21 quarters ending in Q2 2014, Tesla has turned a profit in 1 quarter.
    Who do you think has a better shot at long term solvency?

    Model 3 is far from being in the top 10 of car sales (no trucks, SUVs/CUVs). Thru June of 2018, YTD it's at 20K sold. Above it in volume are the 5-series, Legacy, passatt, e-class/cls twins, taurus, maxima, 3-series, golf, 300, fiesta, camaro, impala, c-class, jetta, mazda 3, charger, mustang, versa, prius, optima, impreza, sonata, forte, crosstrek, malibu, cruze, fusion, outback, elantra, sentra, altima, accord, corolla, civic, camry.

    It's 36th thru June. Malibu is #10 with 76K sold. Even with the 14K Model 3's sold in July, they only gained roughly 2K units on the Malibu (34K vs. 88K). More Musk number juggling.
