posters versus limited edition prints_automotive

Hello, I am an artist about to start an online business. I have seen dozens of online artists selling automotive limited prints and posters.  
 
My main questions are, despite the widespread use of copyrighted/trademarked automotive images of Ford, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Nissan, etc.. artists nonetheless create scenes depicting these cars in their work.  
 
I was told by an artist, too, that as long as you
1) show more than one car in the scene it's okay (more than 1 of same make? or different makes? I've seen many images of the same make of car in a print before)
2) make limited "fine art" prints when using trademarks or car images, as "Fine art" is protected legally from copyright infringements
3) make posters depicting "fantasy cars" only, not 'real ones," as poster art mass-produced is considered "commercial art."
 
Can anyone elaborate on this?
