I suppose an auto maker could unveil a future vehicle design or concept car, for display only in showrooms and auto shows, and say "This is the new model with a planned release for 2020." I suppose they could even sell preorders.

But if it currently exists in a dealership and you can drive it home today, then how can something already manufactured be a 2020?

Before something is made in 2020, 2020 has to actually come.
