For the year, industrywide sales declined by 18 percent — the worst year-to-year drop-off since the early 1970s. The impact of the shrinking market could be felt for years to come, as automakers will continue to cut production and employment, and reduce the number of new vehicles they bring to the market. “With these declines in revenues, you will see research and development budgets cut,” said Jesse Toprak, chief auto analyst for Edmunds.com, a Web site that offers car-buying advice.
