That was 90 units for that particular region, not in total. And aint nobody buying a $50k car with a Corolla badge on it, AWD or not.
You would be absolutely surprised. Lol. There’s a reason why ridiculous markups happen. Someone is willing to pay the crazy amount of money just to drive a car for a few months.

On a Type R forum people are already quoted 10-20k over for a civic.

I saw someone on Reddit who said “If you think you’ll get the new GRC without some kind of markup, I got a ocean front property in Kansas I can sell you.” 😂
I got guarantee MSRP from a local dealer whose owner doesn't believe in markups over MSRP. Only dealer add ons are $500 tint and $200 security wheel locks, which both can be removed with enough persuasion. I know this to be true because I recently purchased a new car from them for my mom.

Lets speculate wildly!
What do we think the starting price of the GRC will be? How many Trim levels, Fully loaded price?
I think 1 trim level but like the GRY, the "trim" levels are just the normal and performance pack. With the performance/Rallye pack if true, I can see over $45k with options

I didn’t say they weren’t out there but I can guarantee you at launch not every dealer is getting one. Lol.

Yea, thats for sure. My dealer moves enough volume, so i expect them to get at least 1 maybe 2. Im not worried about it. If they dont get one, ill just move my deposit over for a manual supra. Lol

It's all conjecture at this point, but I feel like it has to be in the 32k-38k range to not interfere with the 86 and the Supra. It also fills a performance price range gap that Toyota is missing right now. They have cheap sports car, and they have nicer sports car, but they don't have moderate sports car.

I also just can't see myself paying 40k USD for this car. As much as I don't like them, you can get a brand new STI for only a couple thousand more, and, stock for stock, it's a more capable car. Though it has plenty of downsides.
Pro tip: don't ride in an STI from North Alabama to Dallas TX if you value your back.

I'm dreaming of a $35k optioned out car, though that's probably a bit optimistic on my end, honestly.

That’s exactly what people said about a FWD FK8 Civic Type R LE.

Dealers marked them up to $60-70k and they were still selling like hot cakes. In fact, many were sold in the $70-75k range.

We can’t underestimate this market. It’s full of rich folks who don’t mind paying $75k for a Civic. It may seem crazy to us, but it’s pocket change to them.

I'd argue it's more young people who will pay whatever for the car they want and go in to debt for it than rich folks, but your point is right. This market is stupid, and people are more stupid. Here's hoping Toyota does what Ford is doing. Threatening to pull inventory for dealers doing massive markups.

I've never heard of the market up past 50k. 75k seems a bit hyperbolic ya think?
