Tried to pre-order a GR86 at the local Toyota dealer, and a BRZ at the local Subaru dealer. The Toyota dealer wanted $3K above MSRP and would not budge, even saying "Call around the area, you won't find a lower price." There was one BRZ Limited / MT at the Subaru lot and they were asking $47K. Sales guy said that he would take an order from me for delivery, but he couldn't guarantee the price. He said they would mark it to the market price whenever it arrived. So I didn't place an order. If other potential buyers do the same as I have I can easily see Subaru/Toyota mistaking lack of orders for lack of interest and cutting back on production plans leading to sustained higher prices leading to sustained low orders... I can wait, it's a want and not a need, but I'm also re-opening my search for other brands. GTI and MX-5 are awesome cars, too, and a new Z is coming...

Honestly the new Civic SI sedans are really nice especially in the pearl grey

I called around for Subaru, too, and found that Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City will take an order for a BRZ at MSRP with that price guaranteed. I love it when a business plays it straight. July delivery, but that's what you get with covid-ravaged supply chains. I'm leaning toward the BRZ, just my personal taste in looks and ride.

Yea, I decided to pass this year for this exact reason. Not going to feed into the ridiculous over the MSRP price that dealerships will be implementing. I can wait a few years

This is a waitlist correct? I spoke to them today and they said it is just a waitlist for whatever they receive from toyota.
I got their last allocation I think. They said they get allocations every two weeks. Custom orders are still months out.

They're taking deposits for the GR Corolla already?
Yeah, but they said that the number of allocation would be limited. Meanwhile, I already paid a deposit at longo for an automatic GR86, so I am not taking the deposit for the (probably MT only) Corolla that seriously either, as long as refundable.

That would definitely be awesome if true, although the Supra might be a little over my budget😂Actually I am just following the teasers from ToyotaUSA's ins and hoping for the best
Don’t hold your breath for an MT Supra. That rumor is at least a year old. I really wanted one, but the price is way out of reach.

I won't. In fact the Supra (MT/AT) is not in my plan. Pricing is one reason, and I don't want that much attention from others because of its design (although I really like it)
