De auto's waren verkocht kan ook. Worden means something is happening at the time, so the English translation of De auto's werden verkocht would be The cars were being sold, in my opinion.

Yes, I agree. The exact meaning of the different tenses can be pretty subtle and is not always done correctly in Duolingo.
