    Fishing line and a soft rag is all you need to remove them.

    Don't stress :)

    Got the call yesterday, Belinda was very helpful - have to wait until Dec for Goodwood Grey/Black Leather unfortunately, my second choice was black on black which I could have in Sept but decided to wait a bit longer for my first choice.

    Spoke to the dealer this morning, supposedly 300 units til Sept 2020, and an additional 300 til Sept 2021.

    Would be interesting to see if they actually stick to that and keep them exclusive.

    Do you reckon the demand will realistically still be higher the maybe 500 per year - Porsche has not sold that many Boxster/Caymans in Australia - is there realistically the demand for a true sports car any more in Australia beyond the real enthusiasts?

    2018 VFACTS : The top three vehicles within each market segment was as follows:
    Sports < $200k: Ford Mustang (6412), MB C-Class (1520), BMW 2 Series (1361)
    Sports > $200k: Porsche 911 (511), Ferrari range (241), Mercedes-AMG GT (172)

    So that's 534 mustangs a month. Supra is closer to BMW 2 series pricing so 113 units per month.
    I would say that's not enough Supra's for Aus, I would think 1000 units a year would be closer to what we need???

    Interesting and good stats - agree with you that Toyota seem to be creating exclusivity - which is only good if you actually manage to get one.

    Not to mention in 2017 Aussies bought over 7000 AMG variants - so I daresay the A90 will hold it's value reasonably well until the supply is closer to demand

    The driveaway price on the Aus site has been adjusted downwards.
    GTS - $104,xxx to $102,269
    GT - $94,xxx to $91,769

    Not sure if the list price has changed or just the delivery component? Good news either way!
    Hope you lucky pre-order people get the adjustment....

    Looks like the second allotment sold out in less than half an hour again! That’s 200-250 keen Aussies. The next allocation is 2 months away though.

    Any of you guys have any more updates from Belinda/Toyota since dropping your 5k deposit?

    anyone got any idea how the black alcantara option lthat's available on the gts model looks like ? i can't seem to see that option in the USA or UK configurator builds. It added ~ $4500 to the price of the gts

    It seems like for the EU and US markets, alcantara comes as standard and leather is the optional upgrade; whereas, for AUS leather is standard and alcantara is the optional upgrade.

    Maybe Toyota Australia thought we would value the alcantara more because of its perceived “raciness” or maybe they wanted to even out the amount of leather seats and alcantara seats leaving the factory from Austria to ensure adequate supply.

    Either way, having leather as standard in Australia is a huge win in my book.
