Dealer "economics" aren't very complicated. Usually the dealer has to obtain interim financing for vehicles which are not pre-paid special orders. They pay interest charges to the lenders and need to sell the cars to clear the loans. The larger the dealership, the larger the loans and the greater incentive to move vehicles. Hence, your local VW, Honda, Nissan, Ford, etc. dealer is more likely to negotiate over the 100-200 new cars he has on the lot than a Jaguar, BMW, Mercedes dealer whose inventory is considerably lower and whose demand is still pretty high.
