I'm wondering if part of it is simply (to paraphrase Robert Duvall in "Gone in 60 Seconds"), "who the hell would want to buy a 1988 Rolls-Royce?!"

In other words: what makes them attractive to many buyers is that buying a new one screams "I'm rich as hell," while buying a used one screams "I'm not rich, but I like pretending I am." It's different than buying a used Porsche or Ferrari, because with the used status sports cars, a main attraction is the driving dynamics.

Just a theory.
