so just for a weight comparison (yes I know this won’t be accurate but why not lol). The gvwr for a 2020 Canadian fk8 is 3,880lbs. So if the capacity of the cars measure the same (which I’m sure they won’t) it seems like the new FL5 will weigh Around 90lbs more than the outgoing FK8. Just pure speculation on my part using my cars sticker compared to this one.

Maybe they're just making the 2023 models there while they ramp up US production for 2024 units?

I imagine this could create some variability in quality/long term desirability

It means markups will be thru the roof for Made in Japan units shipped to the US. Let’s hope the US plant gets some assembly time.

This. You can't judge production manufacture from a pre-production/press car!

Totally just me over analyzing, but the Type R plaque has 5 digits, like the 10th Gen. So maybe this is a wink to them building somewhat similar numbers, or at least more than people are speculating. 🤷‍♂️
