So far, 2013 illus­trates the guess­work, stab-in-the-dark mode that’s become the norm in “spring mar­ket” fore­cast­ing; not long ago, a very solid, sta­ble, and pre­dictable mar­ket began mid-to-late Jan­u­ary and con­tin­ued through May; it would be easy to focus on a few of the extreme prices being paid for spe­cial vehi­cles lately that hit the hot buttons.

Rare, Unique Vehi­cles Chased Hard but Very Small Mar­ket Seg­ment:
Right color, excel­lent con­di­tion, highly optioned equip­ment, low mileage, and rare.

Still Deal­ing With Post-Sandy Con­di­tions:
What­ever the rea­son, mar­ket is weaker than nor­mal for many seg­ments and it may con­tinue for a while.

Higher Vol­ume Lux­ury Mod­els Still Lag­ging:
Par­tic­u­larly shaky con­tin­ues to be Euro­pean and Asian lux­ury market.
