No real surprise here, but the Subaru BRZ and the Scion FR-S were the fastest selling cars in the month of May, sitting on dealership lots an average of four and five days, respectively, before turning over to their joyful new owners.
If you’re trying to put into perspective just how quickly that is, the average car sits on a lot for 53 days before being sold. Granted, a majority of the initial sales of the BRZ and FR-S models were pre-orders and customers already on a waiting list, so it’s no real surprise that they flew right off the lot. Regardless though, it’s certainly a promising sign that the newest sports car of our era will do just fine.
The big question now is whether or not supply will match up to demand in the upcoming months. Subaru plans to only ship 6,000 BRZ vehicles to the U.S. this year, while Scion hopes to sell around 10,000 FR-S models.
