Chrysler has offered its dealers $1,000 for every car it sells in the next two months in exchange for a promise from the dealer not to cut back their March sales orders, the Detroit Free Press reports. The inventory back up is at 85 days, about 25-35 higher than the automaker would like it to be. While some dealers appreciate the idea (particularly the fact that it's retroactive to February 1), other dealers are likely annoyed they're being forced to order more cars when they can't sell all the ones they already have.

In the eyes of Wall Street, however, incentives to move cars are much better than the alternative: cuts in production.
