When do you plan to get your BRZ?

Pre-orders are opening up right about now. Who's jumping on the lists? If you aren't, why not and when do you plan to get your BRZ? Poll is anonymous and more than one option may be selected but once you submit your vote(s) the poll won't let you vote again.

^I'm guessing you never started a poll thread. For some reason this forum posts the thread first so that it's visible to the public and then redirects me to the poll settings page AFTER the thread has been posted. Takes some time for to type up the poll part dude!

I'm going to *try* to hold out til after launch hoping for special edition announcements (Scion or Subaru) to trickle stateside as has been teased overseas. The FT-86 II Concept, STI concepts, Nurburgring 86, Prova Black Edition, and GT300 got me excited and I want something that more closely mimics the icons that sold me. A stock body with no OEM-quality mods available (as far as we know) for the first few months won't do. When the Release Series/STI/special editions hit, I'll be on it plus will have saved the difference in cost by then.

I don't know yet. I want to wait until after the initial rush of launch but if I come across one with a dealer who is willing to deal, I'll probably buy.

I plan on waiting to order until there is a more definitive answer as to whether there will be an FI version during this generation. If they plan on doing one should be rumors of the test mules by early next year assuming a mid cycle launch during refresh time frames.

I find it a bit annoying that they've opened up the order banks without a firm MSRP. It's a mass produced Subaru, not a Ferrari.

i wonder what they'll do if they price it high, people cancel orders, and then no one is buying.

I'll get one as soon as I can get invoice + TTL and/or special financing like 0.9%/60months etc.

EDIT: I might have to wait for the convertible version(high spec) and then grab a cheap used low spec FRS for fun/tracking.

There won't be a convertible version.

Not a BRZ, but an 86/GT86=FRS is planned by Tada. Check the Scion threads. But you're right about Subaru maybe not releasing a convertible version.

But to me GT86=FRS=BRZ so I'd want a droptop with BRZ luxuries since we know Scion doesnt offer anything luxurious. Here's to hoping *crosses fingers*. I want a brand new age S2000 with amenities. This the car that seems to come close.

I fall under the '15+ category since I will not be able to afford a new car withing the next 2- maybe 3 years. I'm waiting until I go through school and have a good stable job before I even consider a move such as buying a new car.

I envy all of you who can go out and buy it now without worries, and I hope you will enjoy them!

I initially wanted to get mine after launch, but because I got a job out of the country coming up in the summer. Which I may be there for the rest of the year, it looks like I'll have to come back and get it next year. Which I think would make it a 2014 model? So that's what I voted.
