The outlook for production numbers being anywhere near the amount needed to fulfill orders looks very bleak. I saw 300 for Canada and heard upwards of 500 and an assumption of 1000-2000 in the US is my guess. If we look at first-year supra sales of 7000+, how will this affect the sales of this car? For me, it might be a deal-breaker for the foreseeable future if I will not be able to get one until late 2023/2024. I am in the market for a car now, old one has extensive hail damage that will total it, plus it needs some maintenance costing 3500+ so I might as well just get a new car. I have already been toughing it out for the past 1.5years in the hopes of getting a 400 but might have to look elsewhere since things keep getting pushed back and back and back. I really don't see myself in any other coupe so it might be the end of my sports car run, or at least until I can save enough to justify having a second car. Anything I will get in this market of paying out the ass for something used will inevitably cause those who buy now to lose more in a few years and I don't know if I can justify driving a car for 1+ years to turn around and sell it for a massive loss to pay over MSRP for a Z. Id like to heard yalls thoughts.

I think it will be more than 1K. even the last full year of the 370z when no one was buying them was 1900 cars for the US sold. t the 370zs first year it was over 10K cars sold per year. now we od course are in different times for sure with all thats going on in the industry and ecnomy but I just cant imagine it only being 1K units. that would mean only just 800 non proto trims


Canadas 300 cars isnt too far off the average what they have been getting on 370 the last couple years more than the last full year and around 1/3 less the all time high.


if you look at the US and take the low side of the last few years and apply the same logic thats maybe 3K cars. its all speculation but 1K cars would be a disaster

If you HAVE to buy a sports car now and it can’t be the Z you want (yet), I’d suggest a used sports car (370Z, G37S Coupe, Q60, etc) and be patient. While used cars aren’t cheap, they’re a LOT less than new cars and given that the supply chain issues affecting the new car market aren’t going away for at least another year or two, so your used car purchase will lose little of its value when you trade it in on that Z. If you look at my earliest post/s, you’ll see how I came to own a near-mint G37S Coupe 6MT for half the price of the new STi I had my eye on three years ago. Long story short, I wouldn’t change a thing and now I have a great car to enjoy while I, too, wait for the Z. You’re better off waiting anyway so you don’t have to pay the ridiculous markups the early adopters she’ll out.

Thanks for those figures. Even though I was doubtful and had the same question as @Sev995 but now feel I am not alone here. LOL
