As per market trends, crossovers and SUVs are still red hot. However, the fact that the new Genesis is holding the number 2 spot is good news for the refreshed sedan. It should also be noted that high-turnover rates are often due to limited inventory on certain models. Low production models like the Genesis and the WRX mean that dealerships won't get many units which could translate to quicker sales for those that want these cars first.

In a sad bit of news, despite the Jaaaag F-type being arguably the most beautiful car IN THE WORLD, it does not seem to be a hot seller.

C'mon people buy some F-types....yeah I know, you are waiting for the manual gearbox.
