Will Mazda ever let us know what our production # is? Freaking pisses me off.... limited production run, I think I should know what mine is. For those of you that do not care, that is cool. I personally would like to know though.

Well, I would not exactly call this such a limited run that having a low number would increase it's value or even make it mean anything. There is 5k of these being sold in the U.S. alone. Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia should be getting another 10-15k+ in total (guessing) so the limited run does not look all that limited like say a Shelby GT500 or a Ferrari Enzo.

Still, a pretty big number for limited compared to true collectors pieces. Yeah, I know that it is a fraction of the regular 3's being produced but the Speed is still a mass produced car.

+1. mazda always says "5000 north american release."

whether they include central america, i dunno, but they should. thats most certainly at least US and canada.

Was the MS6 'limited production' too?
After all this I wonder if there was just trying to create a false sense of hysteria in the automobile community.

We deserve the limited run production numbers in Canada seeing it is only around 500 :lol:

Now, the white Speed3 would be more of a rarity since the U.S. is not getting it as of a yet.

Where does Mazda actually advertise the MS3 as being a limited production car?

12k total, 5k in North America, the rest are in Europe and Japan. Think of how many civics are made, or any other incredibly common car out there for that matter. Our car is pretty rare. I have yet to see another one on the road. This type of car(sport compact) is pretty prevalent in the South Florida market. On top of that when it comes to overall rarity, think of it this way. I live in the Lambo capital of the world. Literally more here per capita than anywhere else. At least that is what I was told at the last exotic show I went to. I see more Ferrari, Porsche, Lambo, Aston, Bentleys, etc. than I can shake a stick at down here on the roads. So, at least from my viewpoint, MS3 is pretty rare. You don't have to agree. I just want to know my #. If they could give the MS protege guys their production #, I do not see why it would be unreasonable to ask for ours. Don't want it for resale, or to prove that I am exclusive. Just think it would be an interesting tidbit about the car.

My guess is that the list won't be released until after the last one rolls off the line.

Like I said. There are 5000 to be in North America. The other 7000 split up between Europe and Japan. No info so far as to whether this will be a multi-year model. So, 12000 for 2007. I would hope that clears that up.

canada is part of north america, so dont forget to add them to the 5000 the USA gets for the NA total

and you mention europe and japan, however aussies are part of that "other" 7000 as well and they arent part of europe last time I checked. :lol: sorry, couldnt resist

I would think that VIN #s would be in order of production, at least part of the number anyway. I know on older cars you could tell when your car was made in the production run.

Yeah you are right, I forgot about the penal colony. :lol: Sorry, that was to easy. You are right though I did forget to add in the Aussies(who I have no gripes with :D). What part of my saying 5k in North America led you to believe I left out Canada? Pretty sure everytime I have said it I said NORTH AMERICA and not the states. Which, logic would lead to including Canada as well.
