Lexus SC is a class leading clunker for it's price point.

And it shows in its sales.

Not bad from a mechanical standpoint, but bad from a design standpoint.

Interesting that Scion is down 50% plus. Haven't I been saying for a couple of years that Scion is a one hit wonder?

Methinks Scion will die about 2012-2015, if not sooner.

Cadillac SOLD more XLRs than Lexus sold SC430s... The Effin irony.

Yet another reason why the CTS-Coupe should be get a Convertible at the time of release and be named... CLC. Cadillac should then pull it in its sales numbers by calling the CTS, CTC (Coupe), CLC (Convertible), and CTE (Estate) all the : C-Series.

An excellent idea, IMHO!
