2011 FJ TT, 2001 IS300
Yeah we've brought it up several times before. The roof, hood, and wing will most likely be seen in other special editions throughout the years. We know a GRMN Corolla is inevitable and will definitely have those features with a rear seat delete and without the tech and CW packs most likely for weight savings. A rally edition is likely and I wouldn't doubt if they do the hood and roof or do a different hoodI've set the bar low for myself. I'm in the middle of the pack on the list at a couple dealers, it's out of my control at this point. Would love to have the car, but I'm not going to put myself into hysterics for it.
I think the people at the top of their dealer's lists will have the toughest decision. The first GRCs will arrive this fall, but they will be Core models, and those people will have to make the call whether to have the first, or gamble and hope that they get the Circuit Spec next spring. We're all getting the feeling that CS allocation could be a mess, so it is possible that they could choose to wait, and then never get a Circuit. Double-whammy of first in line, but didn't get the first car, and also didn't get the special one.
The Circuit Spec is very cool but it may end up being a bit of a trap in that regard. We've seen with the Supra and 86 that Toyota will almost immediately announce the next special 1500-unit run, except it will be blue, with a special stripe, and nice alcantara seats with blue stitching, and probably the wing and hood from the CS. It's expensive to do one-off tooling for big components like that - don't be surprised when those parts show up again on different variants. Even Porsche pulled that when they released the "swan song of the manual transmission" 911R, and people lost their minds, and then to amortize costs and pay off the huge investment of developing a new manual transmission, they made it an option on the GT3.
