Houston Group Buy

Stole this idea from the California thread and I figured with Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, not to mention any Louisiana cities, all in a relative close proximity, there would be enough people interested in this that would could get a serious deal worked out among ourselves and a dealership.

Disclaimer:
I'm in Houston and plan on doing the group buy through a Houston dealership. With that said, if a large amount (>75%) of those interested are in a different Texas city, then I will see what I can do about switching to a dealership in that city. Also, I haven't decided on the BRZ or FRS yet since the pricing and options have not been finalized for either car, so this group buy could be for either one.

To Get This Rolling:
What I need to know is how many people here are committed to purchasing one of these cars assuming it falls within a price range of 22k-27k (I'm first about not paying over that amount). Once I have a good estimate of how many people would like to participate in this group buy I will start talking to a dealership to work out a deal. Anyone else interested in helping out with this process is more than welcomed.

I have decided on the BRZ. I am in Houston as well...

I am also considering using the Subaru VIP Program to get 2% below invoice.

But I am interested to know how this develops...

Heard that Subaru might not be offering the VIP Program on the BRZ...


I may want to get into this group buy should that occur...

I really wish they would release pricing and options so I can make a final decision on which car to get

Bellaire area.

I wonder if two people qualify as a group xD

Edit: I'm going to the Auto Show at Reliant tomorrow. So far, from what I'm read, only the SEMA FR-S concept is there, and not the acutal car. I'm going to be fuming if the BRZ and FR-S are both missing from the show. What an effing joke.

It's not even the production model, but instead the SEMA concept. I Tweeted Scion about how much that irritated me... It doesn't make sense b/c Houston is the 4th largest city and GST, Gulf States Toyota -- A very large regional Toyota dealership network, is based here. I was sure they would be showing. Oh well just another disappointment.

I'm in Houston, I will probably be going with a BRZ, like you it still depends on the final pricing.

I didn't go; wife was sick. Besides, when I found out neither car would be there I lost interest.

How was the SEMA concept? From the pictures I've seen it's a lot different than a true FRS.

The concept was nothing like it...

Any new news on any dealers taking pre-orders?
