I rarely see an R3's here in Vegas. Maybe not too many, if you asked me. I still want to know anyway.

I ask this very question while at the dealer on 10/25/11,( yesterday). The sales manager placed a call into the district manager to get
the answer. They are going to email me today with the answer.
One thing I did find out is there was 230 RX-8 produced for the western region of the US in 2011. And the R3 I brought in is the second one they have seen!
I was looking for a 2011 or 2010 with low to no miles.
I found 09 R3 with 9,000 miles. I might release that one and keep fishing. for 2010 or 11

What do you think??

I've been meaning to make a S2 sales total thread for a while. Just never got around to it.

I'll create one now. It doesn't break down the individual model numbers though, so no idea how many R3s sold or what colors.

Link soon.

Blue was only available in 2009 and 2010, I believe. Black was only available in 2009. Red is the only color available in 2011.

2009: Red, Blue, Black
2010: Red, Blue
2011: Red

not much more than normal until it has proven it's reliability compared to series 1 rx8s ... which wont be for another few years.

Is that only in the United States?
Because I'm pretty sure it's more than that globally...

Those aren't being sold in the US, now are they?

I wouldn't mind the wheels from one, though.
Would look really nice on my Black '11 Sport.
