 LEXUS ES 300 SALES UP 77 PERCENT;
 LOW INVENTORIES HOLD DOWN SPORT COUPE SALES
 TORRANCE, Calif., July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Continued strong sales of the ES 300 could not overcome low sport coupe inventories and Lexus June sales of 6,260 dropped 8 percent below year-ago levels, according to sales figures released today by the luxury division of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A.
 ES 300 sales of 2,846 were up 77 percent from June '91 and the model's year-to-date total of 17,411 is 82.7 percent ahead of 1991. Total 1992 Lexus division sales of 43,769 are 53.6 percent ahead of last year's pace.
 "The sport coupe has been on the market for a year now and we still finished the month with only a 15-day supply," said Dave Illingworth, Lexus group vice president and general manager. "The ES 300 also has less than a 20-day supply. The market still seems to be coming back slowly, but we weren't able to take advantage of it in June because of low inventory levels."
