Can you lead a revolution to get some of these GR86 potential buyers to jump ship to Subaru, preferably the ones in front of me at the MSRP stores?

Those GR86's look horrible, use last-gen parts, and you can buy a BRZs from the lot basically tomorrow.
Why would someone want to buy a Toyota at this point? Their techs don't even know how to work on boxster engines!

You may of gotten me haha, i've also been on the fence about just jumping on a WRB Brz. I've always wanted to own a Rally Blue car! If only I could get a "slight" discount on the brz, may just be enough to pull me off 2 MSRP dealer's lists.

The Subie front is not bad in person. I was a firm believer that it was inferior, but the proportions in person look great. Picked it up last night.

Wow looks great @puppers! Is it everything we hoped it would be? The WRB looks so good.

As silly as this sounds, I decided to go for a GR86 over the BRZ due to the BRZ having a molded license plate mount on the bumper cover. Other than that, both cars look great to me.

I was #7 and pulled my deposit from One Toyota end of October when I jumped to a BRZ. They were the most organized Toyota dealer I spoke to haha.

I also tried Longo Toyota and was told I would be #2. When i called back the next day with CC info I was told I was #20 so I passed.

I also had a deposit at SF Toyota ($2k deposit mind you). I was #2 on that list. Getting my refund from them was a pain though, ended up driving the 1.5 hours out there to pick up a check because I didn't trust them to process it time before my BRZ came. In the end it took almost 3 weeks before I had my money back. I pulled that deposit the same time as One Toyota.

A single white GR86 just showed up in my local dealers' inbound list or whatever. 4-6 weeks out. 5 people ahead of me but I want red.
