Same as Yaris GR, people wants real motor but these days they are rare to find, all manufacturers are now offered microwaves ovens instead 🪫🔌

You can order the Yaris GR, but you won't get it until 2024/25 - these are making big power as well, around 470bhp before the head gaskets fail or the valves float,

I'm sure they will release more allocation next spring for the 86 if they can get it under the new euro emissions/safety standard for 2024/25

The funny thing is they can't sell too many as it'll push them over the CO2 threshold - Part of the reason they can do this while other manufacturers can't is IIRC they are one of only a handful of manufacturers who have met their CO2 targets - Everyone else is just sucking up the fines or 'off-setting' their CO2 emissions with e.g. Tesla (Which IMHO is so BS and makes a mockery of the whole thing, showing that yet again it's nothing to do with the environment and all to do with money)

I wonder how many were sold - a few hundred, maybe? This morning, Pistonheads quoted from a Toyota statement that it'd sold out in 40 minutes, though I've also seen 90 minutes quoted. 

Either way, it's evidence that it's a winning formula. I'd read that it was incoming new crash regs that meant it was always going to have a short UK production run.

The production run for Europe was 2 years max. I wouldn’t hold my breath there will be anymore allocated for the Uk.

Sadly that could well be the case but it only works for the scalpers if buyers are stupid enough to pay the highly inflated prices.  If the scalpers were left with the odd car or a mountain of game consoles they would soon give it up.

It’s thought to be in the region of 400 for 2022 but Toyota won’t confirm numbers. There should be another allocation for 2023 but again no idea how many or when. 
 

It’s new EU safety regulations which are causing the GR86 to be dropped from the end of 2023.

Yeah, I spoke to my local dealer and they said 400 were available this year and sold out in 22 mins!

I just hope it's to people who will actually drive them and not scalpers and collectors...!

I have no problem with collectors. Scalpers however, ...

It’s all very unclear at the moment if the 400 is 2022 or included the 2023 allocation. Some people have been told that 400 is the total for the U.K. and there won’t be anymore at all. There are 1000 on a wait list which is now closed.
