    Not sure of Aussie inventory at the moment (~1200?) but if FRAP is producing ~600/mth RHDs,
    we should get three more deliveries, so maybe around 3,000 more sales from now?

    They are actually plated MY17, the MY18 starts mid October...

    Rather than constant editing , I'll put this here,


    so let's say that 3,000 total figure is accurate and sales ease back to ~350-400/mth,
    that's enough stock for eight or nine months..(April/May 2018)

    I'd love to know how many Mustangs are on leases - especially 24 and 36 months.

    Most would be 4 year?

    The key with Mustang is the lease market and getting those who lease vehicles to update to a new one at lease end.

    So the break / quieter first half of 2018 may offer Ford a way to stretch out sales
    until more people are ready to buy a new Mustang that has plenty of changes over
    the current one - mainly, engine, 10-speed auto but also it looks more like GT350.

    Probably a tactic to create pent up demand too.

    Keeps pricing at RRP and more cost effective bringing in large chunks then spreading it out too....

    Most cars and every Mustang i've done are 5 year.

    Ok, id say 2/3 year leases are a no no now given how badly cars depreciate.

    Most people who turn over cars quickly, the most efficient method financially is to use a line of credit or re-draw home loan, because once you add entry and exit fees to depreciation, you're 3 years in to break even, equity wise.

    Have we found the depth of Mustang sales yet or is there still a ways to go?
    maybe the next 3,000 or sales will tell us if the market is full or not....

    Hard to tell isn't it.

    There's 1500 of those 13000 on Carsales, 1300ish new or demo.

    You certainly don't need to wait for a car as there's plenty of dealer stock.

    MY18 will ignite it again.
