    ..... in light of todays allocation offerings for msrp and few takers. How many A8's will it take to satisfy that demand?

    Was wondering the same thing. Was surprised there wasn't more interest in the M6 openings today. Ramp up of A8's will take some time I imagine.

    M6s at MSRP all over the place today and no takers, Makes me think that the A8 demand could be satisfied with a little planning and effort on FCA's part - which of course then means it will not happen.

    Yeah, I'm thinking another 500 A8's, and we may be at saturation point for the autos.

    That's because they've basically been forcing the M6 on dealers and customers. You can only do that for so long.

    The people that really want an auto, aren't going to compromise on a 70K purchase. I know I wouldn't.

    Not to mention those of us with crappy knees and/or spouses that also need to drive it where the M6 simply isn't an option.
    If a stick was still an option for me, I'd have kept my turbo Z car !
