Sorry to bump an old thread, but this is the only source I have found with actual numbers. I went a long way out of my way to find my blue 2010 R3 so it's nice to know how rare it is. Are these numbers confirmed in any way?

Below is the Email I received from MNAO.Terry B was/is very helpful and has
handled my OCD question well.


Mazda North American Operations - inquiry 138369100

Dear Mr. H
Upon conducting some internal research here at Mazda North American Operations, I was able to produce the following information regarding Mazda RX-8 R3 production volume.
- 2009MY = 555 units
- 2010MY = 263 units
- 2011MY = 132 units



I do hope the above information proves to be useful for you. Thank you for contacting Mazda North American Operations.

Regards

Sold less and less because the colors got worse and worse. Just my opinion.

I think the more interesting question is total volume, not just R3.

According to the cop that pulled me over... "Your car being red adds 15 mph to your speed", whatever that means... so red is faster by 15 mph.

Read up ^... only 132 R3's were produced for the US market in 2011. I have one, and there's only one other '11 R3 in OKC.
