Most of them don't sell the CTS-V either. But it's out there and available on special order. If I wanted to buy a new ELR or CTS-V (or just about any car) I would want to fill out an option sheet and order it. The practice of finding "best fit" within a half-day transport time just doesn't cut it with the car of a lifetime.

I will bet the real reason is the bloated price - the dealers know they won't sell them and don't want to lay out the cash or finance them only to have to sell them at a loss in a year.

Most Chevrolet dealers don't carry Corvettes, particularly the smaller ones. Anything low volume is going to be a special order, or a shipment from the next big town over. It's not bias, it's business. What KHE says.
