Where do the savings come in for the manufacturers by closing dealerships? I just don't get it. If a dealer can't sell cars, they are stuck with the inventory. If they eliminate dealers, isn't that removing some storage for the the cars, i.e., won't that alone cut future number of cars manufactured? Can somebody 'splain this concept to me. Even eliminating brands seems to cost a lot of money. I guess the whole concept is too big for me to comprehend.
