So by the numbers... almost 40% of the mustangs produced this month are unsold and sitting on the lots somewhere?

Year to date looks like 13000 mustangs are out there right now. Basically 20% of what was produced did not sell.

I have no idea if this is good or bad but that’s a lot of unsold cars if you asked me. What are typical numbers for similar models? Any big incentives going on?

Interesting none the less. Again, I have no knowledge of what’s good or bad but if I had 20% of my product left over and the last month was close to 40% left over, I’d be wanting to wash my hands of it.
Given the unusual nature of the last 2 years, I bet it's an intentional buildup of inventory. Carrying inventory at 25% of prior year sales seems like a safe number to ensure they don't have a stockout. Anything could come up now that may cause a shutdown in the current climate, so it seems like a solid safety stock amount to be safe. Especially considering the 22MY is largely identical. The majority of car buyers won't care to wait for specific color options or trim levels that weren't offered in 21.

Just out of curiosity how much are they charging you for the vert. I am going to FL at the end of January and my ass is still hurting from the raping. Rental cars are stupid priced right now.
7 days for $650, but I prepaid. I used priceline. The cheapest option iirc was like $375 ish for compact, but I figured it's a vacation and it's OK to live a little.

It's funny because the priceline quote was literally half of what the avis website quote was, although again you do have to prepay for the reservation.

Your are assuming cars are sold in the month they are produced. I would imagine there is a several month delay between production and sale of a vehicle.

So glad I ordered mine. Got exactly what I wanted and because of the pandemic I got it at invoice with 0% Ford financing. About the only time I ever lucked out buying a car because of timing.

absolutely. typically at least 2-4 months. Or in the case of one I'm looking at, an ENTIRE year it's sat on the lot.

I saw a Ford ad during Sunday Night Football, $1,000 bonus cash on retail orders. Ford is starting to push the custom order paradigm. This is fine by me, I have a 22 on order 4% below invoice, the $1k bonus cash is a nice bonus.

very much doubt it. The Mustang as rental is history I think. Or 1000 units at most. If it was available to buy, Hertz et. al. would have snapped up everything they could get their hands on. As it is they were buying any random junk they could off the big clearing houses and paying $$$$$ for the privilege.

In this thread, there is a discussion of Avis buying the first 200 2022 production Mustangs. So, I believe if Ford offered the rental companies a chance, they would buy whatever Mustangs are still around. Just speculating, of course

Since Mustang sales are off only 14.2% after all the supply chain problems, wouldn't you expect to see more of them on the lots? Heck, my Ford dealer has just about nothing except for a few box trucks!

I find it interesting that heavy trucks and expeditions are the only growth items from 2021 to 2020.

People need their big trucks and their big SUVs. But there are so set on EV.

The Mustang Mach - e is growing on me, but not right now

I'm sure someone has pointed this out by now, but I'm too lazy to read the thread... I've seen this discussion before, and I don't think those production numbers mean that many are sitting on lots idle. The amount sold this month were probably produced last month and only arrived on dealer lots this month/late last month. Next month, we'll see numbers sold somewhere around what was produced this month.

Until companies make back all the money they loss from last year and the so-called shortage ends, they will continue to add mark ups. Ford is the worse for incentives right now.

Makes no sense to add Mustang and Mach-E data.
Correction - makes no sense to add the MOCK-E data...it should be included with either Duracell's or the Energizer Rabbit's annual figures...
