That's when the 4cyl is due,so i get where Toyota is coming from
What if the inline 6 is really limited? And the 4 cal is for the „mass“ market? Is there someone who believes in that. I don’t do so, but what if?
I said to the dealer that I’m not sure about ordering a car I didn’t drive. He said I should order in every case, because it will be limited to 300 cars in Germany and if I don’t want to buy it in the end, he will. He said that the dealers are not allowed to order the car without a customers reservation number.
He compared the availability and ordering process with the Yaris GRMN.
That could be the case for markets like the EU due to the tax displacement rate, emissions, and etc. But I think the majority sold in the US will be the straight six version.
Highly unlikely. The first 300 will have some limited options, something like different wheels, interior colors and a numbered plate (xxx/300). Limiting the I6 to that low of a number might as well make it a collectable and extremely expensive. also we know at least 47 were made as mules which makes about 1/6th of the total production...? Just doesn't add up.
The first 300 will not include the production mules. IT will be the first 300 sold to the public
That’s correct. Production starts March 2019, from August some Dealers have them and those who reserved one should get them in September.
Why is the rest of the world taking deliveries way before then? In theory you guys should actually see them first being manufactured in your neck of the woods.
Why do you think the rest of the world is taking deliveries way before? I don’t think so.
Deliveries in USA are in late Aug, early September according to my marketing colleagues.
That’s the same dates like in Europe. Not way before.
When did the delivery dates change? Were they not suppose to be at dealers this spring??
Not sure it was ever Spring, but maybe I'm not remembering correctly? I do remember summer being an option that was discussed however.
In any case, I only heard that relatively recently (past 2 months or so).
Sorry, my post was a bit confusing. I was talking about how only the people who put down a deposit from now are getting the I6 and everyone else will get the I4.
Looking at the mules, they most (if not all) seem to be the "340hp" I6 models. So making at least 47 mules for just 300-900 cars sold target is a bit excessive. As in you don't make 1/6th (or even 1/25th) of your eventual total production just to be tested and the other I4 (which we haven't actually confirmed to be in one of the mules yet) is to be released to the masses.
All supra from 2019 are already reserved
