Damn, good eye! My iphone sometimes does not deliver my Toyota USA IG posts even though I have it set up to receive all. Completely overlooked. This has to be the most we have seen from them in a single frame on IG? Love the car ground clearance height as well. Looks perfect.

From what David was saying from the AutomotivePress, it’s not going to be rally driven which is fine. Exciting to see the whole car.

Now that the thing is out there I hope this makes Toyota reveal it sooner.

This is my fear - Gr Corolla gets super popular and becomes difficult to find. Then the ones you do find have high markups beyond MSRP.
We can already assume the GRC will be hit with that Type R tax, but the question is the availability for sure. If it’s made at Motomachi, the first run or even year will be a shit show.

I firmly believe there are dealers out there who are reasonable but it will take many phone calls. This is most likely the minority but I am being optimistic. If it releases in August then maybe that can provide enough time for a market correction and not see these $40k+. A shit show for sure though.

The availability will definitely get us. On the GR86 forum, allocations were just terrible and that’s a mass market vehicle. This GRC being the first in house Toyota in a long time, plus it possibly being hand assembled? Man.

I try not to be a negative Nancy but I always have to be realistic. Every Easter egg dropped we got new forum members, this recent leak has had more people on the internet excited, come reveal day, all us “day one” people are gonna have to fight overly excited people just wanting whatever is new or talked about the most online.

Hopefully we can all help eachother secure one!

Same I think it will catch a ton of people’s eyes.
it has because of

A. It a new car

B. It’s our “GR Yaris”

C. The hype behind it

But that’s just enthusiasts. For the most part I still see people mad it’s going to be an expensive Corolla. Also, if it’s not a “rally” inspired car they have to do other stuff. Probably show road racing.

People will always complain about anything. Most who complain are the ones that weren’t going to buy them.

I posted this on Toyota Nation yesterday. I went to my dealer on my lunch break. I asked if they wanted a down payment and they said no but will do everything they can do to get ahold of one for me fingers crossed

I am on about 11 wait lists in my area and it still is not providing me piece of mind. I am a glass half empty type of guy so take that as you may. Even if they do reach out, what is pricing? Baby steps I guess
