If there are unused cars at the dealership, let's say 2011 year old car models, are those still considered brand new to this day?
If no one bought an older cars, but still new at the dealership, are those still brand new?

EVERY dealer has "unsold" vehicles. That's so you have a choice, but there are no brand new 2011 cars on any lot, anywhere.
All new cars are sold. Occasionally, there will be a few left over into the next model year, but they are all sold with discounts. The same discount a skilled negotiator can get any time.

As long as it has not been titled it's still a new car. But it costs the dealerships a lot of money to keep unsold vehicles (called "floorplanning") so it's not going to happen. You can find year old or sometimes 2 year old vehicles and get a good discount but know that they are going to depreciate even faster. Usually leftovers are also undesirable for some reason, otherwise they would have been purchased already.

Yes, actually they would be, as they were never titled. That's the legal definition of "new".
There is a dealer here that has a 2016 Hellcat Challenger sitting, never sold. Still being sold as new.

I found a 3-year old truck at a dealer once that had never been sold or had a title issued. Seems it had been caught up in a safety recall and since it wasn't owned by a customer, it wasn't a priority for the shop to repair it. It STILL had quite a few miles on it because the shop had put a dealer's plate on it and used it as a shop truck.

All new cars eventually get sold. The dealer will discount them until they are sold.

No unsold cars stay anywhere for that long.

Even if you found an undriven car that old it would be depreciated just like a used car due to age.

The oldest "new" car you will ever find at a dealership is 2 years old. If it's older than that, they would have started to use it as a loaner or sold it at a significantly reduced price to complete with the leases that are being returned.
