Yea we had a big discussion on this while back and turned out to be dealers automatically upload all cars invoiced to their dealers. These cars (most) are not for sale and just get caught up in the autoload.

23 of the first 1000 are for sale by dealers on Autotrader. So much for turning them back so the next on the list could get them.

Here is another related thread that explains this. It's not quite as bad as it seems.

Yep ... I just called about one that was listed and was also told that it was a sold order and just automatically shows up when a dealer is invoiced for the car. Probably only a couple of those cars are actually available for sale.

I was origionally supposed to get # 481 (Sly) which was supposed to de delivered on 8?27 # 670 (Aggressive) was scheduled for delivery on 8/31. 670 came in on 9/8 and the person who ordered it declined delivery (What was he thinking?) I went down to look at it and my wife fell in love, needless to say when I was told I could have the Aggressive if I wanted it I jumped at the chance. # 481 still hasn't shown up. P.S. my dealer is charging MSRP for everyone who ordered one. I think that they will bump up the price for anyone that didn't order one and make a deposit. Drove mine to Williamsburg VA this past weekend (about 340 miles round trip) Had it up to 80 on the expressway, handled excellent. Got a lot of rubbernecking on the road.

Why would you pay to adverstise a sold car?
Keep in mind that special-ordered cars are not the norm for GM. In general, when a car is invoiced to a dealer, it will arrive on the lot and be ready for sale very shortly. It seems to be an automated process, which would probably be fine 99% of the time. Also, for a high-demand car such as this, it may get people calling the dealership to inquire about it, which is the foot in the door that a salesman may want. "No, I'm afraid that one is already taken, but perhaps I could help you place an order or show you some of the other great cars we have in stock."

Just the normal course of business to load all cars up. Most of the time they are not pre-sold like this.

Some big companies pay a monthly/yearly fee to auto trader which in essence gets them unlimited listings. Some of those dealers more then likely have an auto import to auto trader system too.

My car is listed in here along with the other two going to my dealership.
So # 77 can be added to NE.
Funny though, just went to dealership today and he said my car hasn't been invoiced. Mine's #116 :brentil:
