I should be getting my CT by April 25th and I'll be paying full sticker, minus miles the dealer put on it using it as a demo. Where do you think prices will be on a new CT200 in the fall? How about the 2012 model..do you think they'll add a few things and up the price since the 11's had such a great following? I'm just worried people will be buying them by the end of the year for $2k under sticker if/when gas goes down and inventory levels are normal.

Someone make me feel better for paying full price on a new car :confused:

You won't be paying $2k under sticker anytime soon.

Headlines in Wall Street Journal today - Lexus falls behind BMW and Mercedes in luxury car sales this year due to lack of vehicles.

Lexus only plans 10 days of production in May !!!!!!

I think the 2012 will have more standard features to the base level, and enhancements to the packages for sure. Xeon headlights are surprising not an option at all and I think they will be, hopefully adaptive.

I hope the short antenna is ditched too for a modern aerial. If Lexus wants to compete more closely with the A3, they should bring a bit more to the table IMO.

I doubt anyone will get 2K off the sticker anytime soon for the CT200h. With Toyota slashing production by 50% due to the earthquake the vehicle supply will be tight. If you bet gas is returning to below $3.00 I am thinking it has a greater chance of going higher towards $5.00.
Still the CT200h is an expensive hybrid if you compare it to a Prius or Civic hybrid. You get a much better appointed car with the CT200h.
I was able to get 1K off the sticker thanks to a Lexus "thank you" coupon from my local auto show from January.
I have yet to see another one on the road in my area and I have had the car for a month.
Don't feet ripped off by paying the sticker. I am not hearing of any "deals" by any Lexus dealer. Gas would have to go back to $1.85 to cause price discounts on the fuel efficient vehicles and this for all practicality is almost impossible.
The era of cheap energy is over and it is not coming back.
