Default Could you actually buy an "unsold" LFA?

Like the HP noted, there are still 12 unsold LFAs in the States. But I think these are likely models kept around for promotion by Lexus and a few dealers. So while they do come on the market, I wonder if these new versions will stay that way forever... What do you think?

I know Lexus of Calgary has a grey Lexus LFA owned by the dealership owner. He has had it for over 5 years. I posted pictures a while back as it is usually on display in the fall/winter and driven in the summer. From what the sale rep told me, many people inquire about purchasing it, but the dealership owner wants to hold on to it and does not take offers.

These are all dealer-used cars, so even if they've never been titled because they are owned by a dealer, it makes no sense to give them a different designation. They're used LFAs just like any other used LFAs.

Wrong. That is a contradiction. Unless something is classified as a demo model, it cannot be untitled and used at the same time. They are titled with the name of the dealership owner. lfahalo bought a dealership owner's LFA and it was classified as second hand. They are used second hand LFAs.

I believe some of the available cars have yet to be titled, thus if they have some miles on them they have been used and unsold.

this is correct, a lot of these cars have been driven and have miles on them but they are untitled yet.
