To prevent an inside-job kind of theft by an unscrupulous dealership employee. It happened to one of my customers a few years ago with a Corvette. From what I recall, a tech and a few others were involved in a theft ring and duplicating security keys was an easy way to get what they wanted for sale overseas. This kind of thing is rare, but it can happen and there is substantial overseas demand for vehicles that are not available by legal supply channels. I would surmise it was quicker for them just to drive off and flip the merchandise quickly than to tow and then try getting workable keys.
An expert is one who knows more and more about less and less until he knows absolutely everything about nothing.
