Some cars are stolen for the purpose of committing another crime.

And some for the purpose of domestic resale.

However, He believes that if the stolen car is one of the "desired vehicles", thieves may have stolen it for the purpose of exportation.

Because other countries still have a huge demand for cars, yet supply is short. 

Especially the supply of vehicles which are of highly desired nature like Lexus or Mercedez.
