    For some reason, the Nissan GT-R wasn't listed but should've made it given http://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...ncrease-77-for-record-december-136668408.html and it having MSRP <$100K.

    They are confusing worst selling with lowest number of sales. If they intended to sell 10,000 cars and only sold 1,500 that's poor selling. If they only intended to sell 1,000 cars and sold 1,500 that is cause for celebration.

    How many on their list only intended to sell <10k or 5k?

    Yeah, but it's a GT-R!

    Most of the other cars just suck - e.g. ugly huge-assed, gas-sucking, slow crossover SUVs.

    I'll guess it was lucky for Volt fans the $ ceiling was not $50k.

    And if you set your goals according to what you sell, what then ?

    Looking at you, GM

    The contract wording might of had Mazda taking rebadged Escapes through the generation's run. With the new Escape coming soon, Mazda will likely drop it now that they have their own SUVs on the market.
