This is why I was saying “If the 86 gets delayed, people shouldn’t mind.”

I think Toyota for the most part has been doing a good job trying to produce cars for consumers through the pandemic, all while trying to follow guidelines and protecting their workers.

We get caught up in wanting something so bad that we forget how hard it is for them to produce under these conditions. Hopefully they can stay on track but importantly they deserve thanks for trying.

I think overall production and availability could be delayed but as for the actual release I’m certain it will still be November. At this point they already have 86’s built that are going through the final production stages and they have enough to launch the vehicle. Keep in mind it takes a while to ship the overseas and transport them all across the US. No way if Toyota wasn’t able to keep their deadline would they announce it this close to the release.

I agree somewhat, most cars that the media drove were prototypes/not final production vehicles, anything is possible. I’m saying the way some people are acting is ridiculous. For example I know you want the car bad, I’ve read it on many threads, but if it doesn’t come out when as expected, would you be mad? Would it be THAT serious to you? (Again I don’t think it will be delayed but you never know)

Because I see a lot of people getting frustrated for a sports car that’s not necessarily needed but wanted lol. That’s what I’m getting at, I applaud Toyota for approaching the situation the way they are.

I honestly have to admit I’d be a little upset 😅 I have been waiting for this car the second it came out and have saved up soooo much money for it and took extra hours to be able to afford it etc. I agree with you, to be this excited for a car is dumb but I just can’t help it! Again I agree that I don’t think it will be delayed but I do have to admit if it is it’s going to hurt.

Being excited is okay bro and like you said, you saved money so you’re definitely getting one. No need to be upset. We should give Toyota props though, because they could be like other companies that push out crappy quality cars for quick profit. You have some companies rumored to make cars without chips, having them sitting around awhile until a batch comes in. Lol
