    They were suppose to arrive before base and premium models. First 1500 to go to dealers to launch Supra back in the market.
    Still sitting at port while models produced after them are at dealers and sold to customers

    Do not totally agree with your grievance but I’m curious to what Toyota replies to you. Let us know. And I believe we will see our cars this week, or latest next week. I’m rooting for us.

    That would be great...but if you only have time for one VIN, I think this “random” VIN would be a good one to check....LW021399. ;)

    Meanwhile, I still have Launch Edition #248 of 1500 for sale. Then again, according to others on this forum, I’m a fool for asking above MSRP for my piece of crap, used (14mi.) Nocturnal Black Supra! If you would like, you can privately message me about this to avoid getting “flamed” (whatever that means) by users on this forum.

    Couldn't agree more. I got my LE with CF mirrors, so even that's gone for me. If it's designated as LE there could have been more limited options like special color, signature on the engine, something... Currently, my car stands out as there isn't many Supra's out, but when people buy non-LE's mine will not be differentiated from the outside. Well surely having the car is enough, but we're complaining about LE not standing out as much...

    Also, the interior being half red and not having any option for non-LE's also don't look good on Toyota tbh. I hope for other's sake they make interior color an option...

    And because of these reasons, unfortunately I do not think paying $20K over MSRP for LE make any sense.. unless it's because you can't wait for another month for non-LE... Only thing you "couldn't" probably order is the LE badge, but if you replicated a #2 badge and signature and showed your friends that you have #2 LE, you can easily fool anyone with the above said plus door trim, etc... At this point, I think unless you check-in with Toyota upon buying/selling you can't even tell from the VIN that it is, or it isn't LE...so will it hold value? I doubt it..

    I believe Canada is getting only one trim and the red interior is optional on all of their orders.

    It’s only available on white and black cars. And technically the matte grey but pretty much no ones getting that car

    All I’ve heard is that the color is very hard to produce to the quality that’s needed. Not sure what happened to those cars but there only like 7 phantoms in all of North America.

    I thought matte gray is an option in NA and in Europe only 90 cars of the LE will become matte gray.

    You can't opt. In for matte gray in Europe sadly.

    Not sure where you all heard that... I have a deposit on a gray matte phantom MKV that the dealership specifically ordered for me and the they were able to order it like any of the other premium non-LE Supras. (I ended up picking up a black LE elsewhere because I changed my mind on getting a matte car, but it’s still being ordered as I haven’t gone in to cancel the order yet.)
