Just got a call from the dealership. Release date is in June.

Hey I know im going to get yelled at for not checking if someone already posted this buuuuuuut... I just got a call from the scion dealership. The guy told me that the release date is being pushed back from April to June. I kinda figured that would always be the date. I asked if the first 86 would still be getting it in April and he said no.

More time to save up for that downpayment!

I didn't even know there was an offical release date announced. Are you sure the sales guy isn't just telling you this so you don't get your hopes up? For example, the car I have ordered is (according to the sales guy) arriving in May. He did say that they expect pricing to be announced in April though.

Honestly, I don't think there ever was an offical release date ever announced other then the Japanese GT86 model.

If your correct, I suspect June 8th is the release date. It is the 8th day of the 6th month! As with some of the forum posters, I've suspected all along that this is the day.

Seems more nonsense from sources of dubious quality :-s

I agree completely.

I don't ever remember seeing an April release date. So how it can be "pushed back to June" doesn't seem normal to me.

It can't really be pushed back if it never was intended to be released in April. I always thought the release was to be late May early June!

Honestly, I think the dealer is just telling you your order wont be in until June so you don't freak out on them come April.

Your dealer called because you've been bumped, someone offered him a nice premium to jump the queue...

So how much did you pay the sales guy for his spot?

Well I remember AutoTrader.com saying the release date was in April, it fact, they still do http://www.autotrader.com/research/n...dpage=HPTABRCH .

What he told me was that they had been told that the release date was going to be in April, but that they were contacted my Scion this morning and were told the release date is now in June.

Either way, one month or three months it's still right around the corner!

I talked to my scion sales rep today and he said they are getting an allocation of 4 FRS's in April. He said he would call me the 1st week in April. He said he should have the color and trans descriptions by then. Thats all he knows right now.

I've been going back and forth on the BRZ and the FRS but seeing as the BRZ is "expected" to be in "limited supply" I'll pass on the bidding duels and go with my original choice and get the Toyota version. I only hope I can get the JDM led DRL headlights, aftermarket.

That slogan severely annoys me, but the due date is expected

Yeah, no kidding. Nothing like confidence inspiring and heart pounding after thinking you just bought a Subaru, assume that it's AWD then punch it in a corner in the rain, breaking the rear tires loose and into a guard rail.
