    Changing market conditions are affecting the optimal 60 day supply desired but even so.....with the drop in overall demand as the SAAR dropped for the industry as a whole...GM s moves to control inventory levels are a bright spot.

    GM has stated it will be able to remain profitable even if the SAAR drops from 17 million last year to 12.5 million should a disaster strike in the US automarket

    at its worst in recent years the SAAR dropped almist a decade ago to qp million SAAR when buyers could not get auto loans to buy vehicles wanting to be sold or leased in the USA...(2009/2010)

    credit still seems to be available so we shouldnt see a drop that low. It has been stated for the first time ever repossessions of vehicles for non payment is rising rapidly.

    even in the financial crisis when home owners went delinquent on their home mortgages they still surprisingly paid their car loans..(easy to repossess and people needed their cars to get to work so they paid their car loans ignoring their mortgages.

    for some reason people are beginning to default on tjeir car loans more so than ever..

    this is a dangerous sign for the industry...

    just shooting the breeze as GM is being proactive so as not to be in harms way should the economy relive 2009/10 crisis levels.

    some may say Ms Barra and her team are tough with the knife on plant closures ...i suggest Ms Barra and team are moving effectively to maintain profitability for all possible sales environment...

    As a side note...during the GM repayment of auto loans ie bailout by the US government...a planned profitability was deosgned in at the then 10 million Saar...

    now GM is using a more realistic worst case scenerio of 12.5 million SAAR and I applaud their worst case scenerio shift to 12.5 million.

    selling off money losing operations in europe and around the world makes sense...

    a little concerned about the entire industry rushing to ride sharing concepts..personally I think its a fools errand...

    more logical would be considering moves as shown in california...

    short term ev lease deals on off lease vehicles from the factory with full coverage on warranty is the smarter play with the main profit being data collection and selling of that data...

    thats where GM should focus future profitability a barro like business venture to piggyback with cruze automation..(cruze automation i believe was valued at 17 billion last year )

    piggy back short term lease barro like GM would be a huge profit center...

    this concept would begin to sure up residuals on new car sales and offer second hand buyers a confidence inspired avenue instead of subsidized leasing by manufacturers which will begin heavily as the SAAR continues to drop.

    like I mentioned just shooting the breeze..

    what do you believe is going on amd what do you think will occur in thenext year or so in the US market?

      The rapid rise in repos speaks volumes about how 'upside down' the average American is. It is also just one indicator of how fragile the entire auto market is, as we re-enter dynamics that are very similar to '07 - '08. As long as we offer 10% down mortgages and give deals on cars to anyone with a pulse, we're on very thin ice economically.

      Will Corvette stay somewhat above these issues...maybe at first, but time will tell.
      '64 Silver Grey Coupe (custom paint)- still our favorite
      '77 Black L82 / 4SPD
      '78 Silver Anniversary L82 / 4SPD
      '13 White/Blue Diamond 427 60th roadster - favorite late model
      '14 Black Z51 Coupe
      '15 Shark Grey Z51 Coupe

      '20... Zeus Bronze Coupe, 2LT, GT2 seats, Natural two tone, Body color accents, Pewter wheels- 10/1/20😀 GAME CHANGER

        Wow a few months ago GM had a 237 days supply of Corvettes, then it declined to 137 days, now with spring purchasing and compounded by increased sales to to GM’s Corvette owner loyalty’s $3,000 incentive, now down to just 97 days . Perhaps with the schedule Plant shut down between the end of the C7 and the beginning of the C8 being about 6-10 weeks (we do not yet know anything official from GM), they might have things right on track??? Could be, a “well done GM,” something really hard to do at the end of a generation.
