The group of newspaper publishers that’s working with Moelis & Co. to explore a sale of Cars.com hasn’t formally solicited bids for the business yet, said the people, asking not to be identified because the information is private. The site, visited by more than 11 million potential car buyers a month, may fetch $2.5 billion in a sale, one of the people said. According to Bloomberg, a spokesman for Apax declined to comment on its interest in Cars.com. Elizabeth Elmstead, a spokeswoman for Cox Enterprises, said the company doesn’t comment on speculation.
