A log is seen on top of an automobile damaged by superstorm Sandy in the Breezy Point section of the Queens borough of New York.

Superstorm Sandy may consign as many as a quarter of a million new and used cars and trucks to the scrap heap, a loss that could eventually lead to a spike in new auto sales, automakers and dealers said.

So far, automakers have reported that some 16,000 brand new vehicles will have to be scrapped due to the killer storm that flooded coastal areas in New Jersey and New York.

Many of them were stored at the port of Newark when Sandy hit.
