Earliest Citation:
The car market has become less predictable not only because of economic and energy-related situations but also because of shifting consumer preferences. In the highly fragmented marketplace of today, the dealer who has taken a portfolio approach to his business, and is diversified by product lines or geographically, may not be as vulnerable to economic jolts or changing customer tastes as the dealer who operates out of a single brand store.
—Maryann Keller, "Don't forget the dealers," Automotive Industries, May 1, 1987
