I met a guy at a Halloween party last night who told me he was a sales manager at a local Toyota dealership. I mentioned that I had a Prius and naturally the conversation turned to supply, demand, and market value. He said he has more than 150 names on his waiting list. He also said that one reason the supply chain is relatively slow is because Toyota spends twice as much time inspecting Prii for defects as they do any other model. (I don't know if this is true or not.) One thing I found particularly interesting was his claim that, by the time he searches for, buys, transports and preps a USED base model Prius his cost is nearly $25K--and he can sell them as fast as he can find them.

Drive happy,
Moo :)
