Pre-Order List
Most people, if not everyone, here said they're getting $500 refundable pre-order with guaranteed MSRP
Official BRZ Pre-Ordered Database
Official BRZ Pre-Order Map
Official BRZ Dealership Blacklist

Initial Allocations for Dealerships
"It is important dealers fully understand the order filling process as you submit your sold orders. In summary, allocations for the 7 months May-November have been developed for each dealer. Fulfillment of a dealer’s allocation quantity will be spread basically pro-rata over the 7-month period and will not accelerate based on the number of sold orders submitted nor will it be reduced based on the number of sold orders other dealers submit. The most important factor is for individual dealers to ensure their sold orders are submitted in the order with which they want them filled. SOA will look to fill the oldest sold order within a dealer’s allocation from the pool of cars available irrespective of when that order came in versus any other dealer’s order." -Subaru of America

"Keisuke Kirimoto officially confirmed that there are no production limits, and that they will sell as many as possible."

Dealerships in Red are blacklisted as BAD dealerships

Speculations of Price
Redesign of WRX will probably increase it's price since it's not sharing the Impreza platform
BRZ said to cost 1k more than FR-S
Automatic said to add $1.1k
Destination Charge $700-$750
BRZ Price
"Subaru does say that the BRZ will start at about $25,000"
"STI: It is likely to produce around 250bhp. "We can definitely develop the intake system," Atake said. "There is certainly room for improvement there." In addition, there is likely to be a freer-flowing exhaust and modifications to the engine's variable valve control system, along with an even higher rev limit of around 7,500rpm. As well as more power, the BRZ STI is set to weigh even less than the 1,250kg standard car, thanks to racing bucket seats and potentially a carbonfibre roof and bonnet, which will further help to lower the car's centre of gravity. Other tweaks will include a dramatic bodykit, stiffened and lowered suspension, lighter but larger 18-inch alloy wheels and upgraded brakes."
No Turbo Version Ever

2013 BRZ
(FR-S is the base model)
Premium: Manual $25,495; Automatic $26,595
Limited: Manual $27,495; Automatic $28,595
STI (30k-35k?)

2013 FR-S
Manual: $24,200
Automatic: $25,300
TRD ?
Five-Axis ?

2013 WRX
Base: 25.5k
Premium: 28k
Limited: 29k
STi: 34k
STi Limited: 37.4k

2015 Redesign WRX

Speculations of Production Numbers
"As you might expect of such a vehicle, the all-new Subaru BRZ will be built in extremely limited quantities. The rare driver lucky enough to own one will experience Subaru engineering distilled to its essence." -Subaru.com
Keisuke Kirimoto officially confirmed that there are no production limits, and that they will sell as many as possible.
Toyota will get a "vast majority" of the production
The convertible version next year (2013) after release in Japan

(these numbers are purely guessing to give you an idea until we can confirm the right amount)
2700 Pre-Ordered in USA
2600 Ordered in Japan
500 a month for North America (BRZ)
6000 a year for North America (BRZ)
500 a month for Europe (BRZ)
500 a month for Asia (BRZ)

7000 Ordered GT 86 in Japan
10,000-15,000 for the first year (FR-S)
750 a month for North America (FR-S)
500 a month for Europe (GT 86)
1000 a month for Asia (GT 86)

Goal of 100,000 BRZ/GT86/FR-S a year

Release Date
Pre-Orders will have priority.

BRZ and FR-S
On sell April 20th
Most dealerships will have 1 a month to begin with
In Dealerships as early as May and as late as November
BRZ STI
Might be in August

Seriously? That is very impressive. Wonder if they will have any problems selling them that far north compared to a dealer in CA or FL?

I believe Subaru of New England is the middle man between Subaru and a network of dealers in the New England area. My guess would be that's their allotment for the year. I may be incorrect though...

Not bad considering there are 63 dealers in SNE territory. 800/63=12.7 That averages out to about 13 cars per dealership. Not bad.

It's the total allocation for the first allotment (May-Nov) for all the SNE dealers, although it doesn't seem like the most reliable information.

I've emailed all 4 Subaru dealerships and so far only one dealership (Subaru of El Cajon) called me back. He couldn't provide with any details since their BRZ training isn't until the end of this month.

Tell him to join here. We will get him trained overnight.

Seriously, why do they even have dealerships. Just sell the car to us directly at cost. I live about 10 minutes from the port Subaru delivers to so I will just go pick it up there when it gets here.

I told Andy from Subaru of El Cajon to do work!

I mentioned that the FR-S/BRZ forums operates like an underground tactical network committed to exposing good and bad dealerships. He didn't seem to be down with teh internetz though.

There are laws in place that prevent manufactures from selling direct to customers. There are multiple reasons like having a local presence to support the buyer. We need new rules that allow for Internet sales.

As I found out with my 2009 smart car (yes I owned and loved the smart car) there are no rules which require a to keep a local dealership open to service your car.

Lots of laws need to be changed like the fact that in Minnesota dealerships can't be open on Sundays even though their service department can.

Yeah I would have no problem ordering the car direct from Subaru. I do most of the maintenance myself and for major work I have a mechanic who charges about half what the dealer does. I wonder how long it will be before we don't need dealerships anymore, just like I wonder how long it will be before I don't have to pay for cable just so I can watch live sports which they could easily stream online.
