Canadian ISF's

While reading an article in Canadian Driver, about the 2008 ISF, I stumbled upon a nice short sentence near the end of the article.

"Lexus says 200 IS Fs are destined for Canada for 2008. "



Now this gets me wondering how many '09s are destined?

raaaaaaaaaaaaaare

The rarity is a bit of a selling feature for me. I like the fact that there isn't one on every corner. My dealer here in Calgary said that they sell about one a month.

Not sure about Canada, but for here in the US, there is no IS F production for July 2009.

Given the small size of the Canadian automobile market it doesn't make sense that we'd get 1/4 of the production...
The US market is more than 10 times the size of ours, yet they get less than 3 times the number of vehicles we do?
