Very few ATS sales are going to so-called "performance enthusiasts". Instead, they're being bought by "fixed income retirees" who like the cheap CTS they've been presented with. RWD is just fine in Florida, the smaller cabins are okay for the 4PM early bird special crowd.

This is the Honda Element redux. Honda builds a car for beach-going Gen X'ers straight out of college, turns out its a cheap, large car that's perfect for the irritable bowel set and becomes grandma's favorite wheelchair mover.

And this is based on what?
Do you have any statistics as to who is buying the ATS?
