This is a tough time for the very wealthy. Stocks are seesawing. The credit markets are as liquid as a frozen daiquiri. Rage against big Wall Street bonuses has lately taken up much space on Washington’s political menu, right alongside proposals to collect more taxes on the top 1% of the American income pyramid.Despite all this, the makers of ultra-luxury cars — vehicles priced above $100,000 — still believe in the American dream. They aren’t giving up on the U.S. market, and, indeed, some see reasons to be optimistic that a recovery in demand could come sooner than some expect.
