I know for a fact that dealers are marking their 'stock' cars and 'cancelled orders' as "sold", so that they do not appear on the internal system as available. By doing this it stops others dealers from inside their 'group' from purchasing the cars from them, on the flip side it shows the dealer as having none available.
The only way you will find these cars is by ringing dealers directly - which I've done very recently.
