The question of how many R8's sold in the USA has come up in several threads. Here is the data from today's (Dec 2nd) Audi USA press release:

AUDI US SNAPSHOT:

R8
Nov 2008 Sales: 150
Year to date: 785

I suppose those are cars shipped to dealers. Do you think retail sales may lag those numbers somewhat?

Good question. I thought that the figures represented sales to end customers (they also quote sales of Audi Certified Pre-Owned vehicles in the same press release). If the GAAP Revenue Recognition Rules for car manufacturers are anything like the ones imposed on my company :)( ) I would expect these to be retail sales .... but I don't know.
