well, to be fair, there are a lot more options out there for japanese cars.

Honda, Nissan, and Toyota all made top 10. with hyundai (south korean) is the best selling.

The entire Suzuki lineup, with the exception of the Kizashi, look like they were designed and built in the 90s.

Isn't (or wasn't) Suzuki partially owned by GM and aren't (or weren't) Suzukis marketed/branded as Chevrolets in other parts of the world?

I'm not surprised that the 'smart' car isn't selling well.

I think GM owned at one point 20% of Suzuki...I thought that's about as far as it went.

To some extent. The XL7 was built alongside the last-gen Equinox and Pontiac Torrent.

Funny how they say the RX-8 and Cayman don't sell because of the economy. Never mind the fact that GM, Ford and Chrysler have taken over the sports coupe market with the Camaro, Mustang, and Challenger, and that those cars don't offer anywhere near the performance.

For the price, the performance is not the reason anyone buys a porsche. It is a luxurious car, no doubt fun to drive, but if you are looking at the performance numbers they aren't there for the money. That, and the ugly factor are why Cayman sales are so poor. Why do YOU think Cayman's don't sell, if they are so great?

if your buying a cayman for straight line performance your, well, doing it wrong. look at car and driver's last lightening lap competition or motortrend's best driver's car article. it is a performance car for the track pure and simple. i wouldnt say it is a particularly luxurious car, you got it wrong people DO buy porsches for the performance....

the decline in sales more than likely has to do with a couple things. The massive sales success that the Panamera is, porsche customers (the ones that want the badge) probably see that as a better vehicle. Then there are the enthusiasts, and even though every 1 out of 3 drivers use a cayman at the DE's i go to they all have a common complaint: IT NEEDS MORE POWER.

It's funny that the article states that nobody wants a sports car in this economy. Guess the author didn't see the Camaro's sales #s w/o even a convertible or z28... and that's with the supposedly horrendous hard dash and visibility. (that was sarcasm) Who cares if the dash is hard. If I ever need to sleep in my car or punch my dash I'm sure I'll change my mind though.

there is a difference between wanting a 50k sports car and a 23k sports car.
