Just to screw with you a little. I don't think numbers always dictate/justify the effort in validating a product for market.

They only sold 3950 S14's in Australia.

Yet we got the s15.

Nah, it’s more that Europe and Japan has crazy high taxes on engine displacement over 2.0L so this opens up a bigger share of buyers. But I think they wanted to make enough of them to justify the costs so they released it for North American markets as well.
