are the order banks finally officially open?

i've tried multiple dealers here who wont even acknowledge pre-orders until they can actually order cars, which is a good thing i guess, but still annoying

it's really not even a good looking car, looks like your average econobox you might get from the rental stand. And Toyota still rolling out turds with the infotainment screen slapped on the dashboard like an afterthought.. C'mon man.

I had a Tacoma for 5 years and loved that truck, but Toyota needs to do better in the aesthetics department.

Is there a reason for the limited production?

Americans hate wagons
Americans can't drive stick shift
Americans don't want to pay $50k for a Corolla
Toyota wants to ensure demand outstrips supply on a very niche car
Toyota doesn't want to sink a ton of money into ICE when electric is the very clear future

I think I will wait to buy one until the hype and the markups die down. I am still interested in one but maybe get a core with the performance package and then update the springs and dampers later on to match the higher spec cars

Watched a couple videos..

sounds like its setup to understeer and be very safe at the limit
the only way to get the back end to come around is pull the handbrake, even in 30/70 mode
tons of grip, really great car on the track
driving around normally it can drive like a normal Corolla, ride may be a bit harsher
the Chorizo edition is supposed to be noticeably better, but in power and suspension that can be addressed in the aftermarket

this is circuit editions (and only in the first year), the "core" trim will be no limit

Morizo edition is like 200-250 per year though, super limited

I really hope that's true about the core. Core + circuit hood + tune would be incredible value. My guess is that sales numbers fall off a cliff in year 2 or 3 and they call it a wrap with less than 10,000 made
