... for the US market (and for other countries as well if anyone knows)? Also, if you can, list your plaque # ... that might give us somewhat of total as well? Thanks.

Mine is a 2024 / R-19,878 - USA

They'll probably make enough to match demand. Plenty to go around for everyone.
That's probably good overall.

I was thinking if they were a limited edition, they might hold their value better, on the other hand the more they make, the better the availability for parts and support.

I think its a three year run. This has been asked a million times on here and estimates are 10-14k US w Japan taking priority with a huge backlog. Hopefully an LE comes out next year.

Thanks, I did a number of searches but didn't find anything on production numbers. The main reason I asked is the dealer I purchased the car from said they sold 4 last year and mine was the first one they got for 2024.... that's not many per dealer if you think about it.

As of 2023 they sold 3300 in America, so if a three year run...

They're not distributed equally across dealerships, they're allocated to dealerships based on overall sales volume and Type-R sales volume. Your dealership may have gotten 4, while another might've gotten 14.

I thought it was build number. I wonder what the point is of a badge # is then?
Think of the R number as a little personification for your car--the build order is better reflected by the VIN.

If dealers keep shooting themselves in the foot trying to ask $10k over still they will stop producing sooner than later. Manufacturers only produce limited run vehicles as much as they see them sell.

Yah, that's not the build order, but it does indeed represent the number produced worldwide at the time of that plate. For instance, most of us had numbers in the 2-4000s at the beginning of last year, and no one is seeing anything that low this year. So, it does give us a feel for what their overall production numbers are.

And yes, of course, as you and others have made clear on here... USA numbers can only be gleaned from the VIN.
