    Not surprised they havent shifted 300 - cant have been selling more than that for the Mk4 in its prime.

    (Not hating btw - have one on order!)

    When I was talking to my dealer a few weeks back, I asked what position I was in the queue. He said 147. I was quite surprised as I had put a deposit down within an hour of the youtube announcement, when it only had 262 views. I fail to believe that I'm 147 in the list, I'm probably in the top five, if not the first UK order placed. I think he misread the detail and they had only 147 reservations in the week before xmas.

    On the 26th of October my dealer said:

    At the moment the only thing I'm sure about is that I got 4 people in [city] that made a reservation and 143 in UK .

    So I think more likely 147 total reservations at that stage. I reserved around 4:30 on the day they opened so if you were before that even if I'm 143rd no way you could be 147th.

    It could be that allocation is a lottery, rather than when the order was placed.

    Will be a rare sight on the roads then. I’ve reserved but am by no means certain to go ahead, will very much depend on results after Monday.

    Same boat as you - though for £1k was worth a punt, but so far nothing is screaming at me that I MUST have this car.

    Will reserve judgement until Monday however, and if it's looking a bit 'meh' I'll prob go get a 981 Cayman S.

    Thats my point... for £50k (we assume) it needs to be special, otherwise £30k to go on a proven motor.

    To be fair £50k would buy me another 911 Turbo - now that was a special car <insert sweet memories sequence....>

    Anyone from Belgium that's reserved a spot (besides me)?
    I paid the €2000 reservation 'fee', got a confirmation mail about my reservation, and that's it. 2 months later and I still haven't received any extra info (like those mails with the engine sound clip etc).
    Called the dealer where my GT86 and mk4 are serviced and they couldn't give me any info, except that I should call Toyota Belgium customer support if I have questions...

    Counting down the hours until the reveal on Monday, hopefully we know everything afterwards... :)

    I'm not in Belgium but the UK and have had the same experience as you. Got the confirmation email, then one to tell me my contact at the dealer and nought else. So much for being the 'first to know about the new supra' blurb on the website.

    No. Haven't had anything apart from the reservation confirmation and dealer contact until today when I had an email to inform me I will receive an email on Monday with a link to see the live reveal.

    Bit miffed really. Would have liked a freebie Amazon Echo in the camo
