A good example of this prior to the pandemic was the Golf R. There were MAYBE two shipments of those to the US per year, so you would see inventories and sales at zero then suddenly have a spike in both when the ship arrived and the numbers would drop steadily for months until they were all gone.

Now low volume models like that are just gone instantly. Very different world.

I guess we'll need a couple more months to see if that's the case. Inventory is supposed to be better in the coming months; but, maybe not to "proper" levels. I see them pushing the BRZ out regularly as it's a newer model and they want to push it. I certainly don't understand the behind the scenes; but, I wonder if that since this is a Toyota as well, has Toyota been able to secure more semiconductors on their end to help with this? Is that how it works? Or not?
