Hi all, apologies if this is a repost ...

UK newspaper The Guardian has published a pretty amazing photo gallery of new cars titled "Growing stocks of unsold cars around the world".

You can check out the photo gallery here ...

The motor industry needs to change. No longer can manufacturers build to their perceived production volume. At retail the industry also needs to change. The financial incentive should be geared towards a made to order car being cheaper. Not the other way around. The premium should be charged to the immediate delivery vehicle. This ensures that dealers won't be forced to hold as much stock and stock rotation remains consistent.

With many manufacturers on extended Christmas shutdown, the number of cars rolling off production lines in December fell 47.5% to just 53,823
