Good stuff, looks like my car was made within the last 1000 units.
My last 4 are: 3943.

Any build info estimates for 09s?

^Definitely going to be reduced numbers for '09 due to a slowing and stoppage of production by Toyota. The F might become more exclusive, especially if you have an '09

Hmmm, that's pretty cool! So that means the # of IS Fs in Canada would be from that small fraction of 1,xxx or so for the rest of the world... pretty exclusive if you ask me!

Flipside, very interesting...Any idea how many preproduction cars there were in total and where they eventually end up? I see the one in your example is #150 so does that mean there were at least 149 cars made before that? Where do they end up?...I assume some were crash tested, etc. ....just curious...also when did actual production start? Dec. '07? Thx for any info...

Mine seems to be the one of the very last of the '08's. My VIN ends in 4822, just six from the end. Any later ones here?

Yeah don't quote me on the exact pre-production number, but the first cars that were released were the 50 Special Build Nieman Marcus Edition F's.

The first pre-production ones were hand built, and end up as either auto show displays, Taste of Lexus and event cars, press pool of cars, T-Ten program or in the crusher. Most of them end up in the crusher after their useful life. I think it was either 11/07 or 12/07 for first regular production.

My vin is 0235 and was built in 2007. Does that mean it was a pre-production model?
