I was wondering if there is an actuall accurate account of Supra's for the U.S.? There are 2 main Production numbers that I could find. One shows retial sales, and the other is Color Production but seems to only have Turbo Models listed under that one.

http://www.mkiv.com/specifications/sales_numbers/retail_sales.html
http://www.mkiv.com/specifications/sales_numbers/color.html

But my main question is the numbers dont match up... Retail sales show there were 409 TT Supra autos Targas for 97, while production by colors shows 545 for the 97 TT auto Targa... A lot of the production numbers between the two dont match up. So which is right, or is there a more accurate list Im not finding???

mkiv.com lists some numbers, but they seem to be off as I have read before that they do not account for all the 98's that took forever to sell. I also believe that they do not account for Supras that were shipped to Hawaii.
Basically we do not have an accurate number, just a rough idea.

Shouldnt there be a master production list from Toyota of Japan, for U.S. Production Supras?

I was looking at the Q/S thread and there are alot of them missing. My friend sold his 98 Q/S TT 6 spd a years ago and then it was sold on the suprastore site vin( JT2DE82AXW1002440) never seen it on this thread. Now my friend in Fla. has a 98 Q/S na auto and it's not on this thread. So there are more supras not counted.

Ill do this for 93-98 since the list isnt complete to 2002.

This will be really close, but not 100% accurate (will be off my about a hundred, but this is close enough to suffice) since they changed the way they stamped the frame #'s in mid April 97.

From Dec 92 - April 97 roughly 39,364 MKIV's were made.
From April 97 - July 98 roughly 3,357 MKIV's were made.

This is world wide right? Any more specific to how many were U.S. models?

Some of the production #'s reported by Toyota may not be accurate as most dont include Supra's sold in Hawaii.

The list seems to be that 11,503 MKIV supras sold in the US from 1993 to 2001, but at the bottom it has a footnote stating that it does not include supras sold in Hawaii. They only appear on percentage charts, not production charts. The supras sold between 1999 and 2001 were those that were left unsold till then at the dealerships.

This is coming from the Toyota Allocation Manager for Toyota USA.

Keep in mind some of the Supra's sold in 1993 may have been MKIIIs

Ok let me get this straight in 95 around a total of 1747 supras were produced for the american market, and according to the color chart 1050 of those supras in 95 were turbos, meaning by a rough estimate I own one of around 687 n/a supras produced that year? Does anyone make a color production chart for n/a's? I want to find out how many auto targa n/a white supras were made that year!
