Is There an sGT shortage??

So I've been planning out my purchase of a new sGT next year -- been doing this for over a year now. From time to time I hop on and check dealer inventories. I live in New England and there's about 15 Mazda dealerships within a 50 mile radius of me...for a grand total of 7 sGT trims. This was not the case last year -- hell, last year you could find 4 or 5 sGT trims on any which lot you went to -- they were definitely in abundance.

Did I miss something? Is there a reason the sGT trims are so sparse?

I don't know if there's a shortage, but I think they must make many more i's. When I was looking for a S GT, I had to look more than 100 miles away to find just a handful. I was able to find a dealership that had a white sedan coming in 4 weeks later, so I bought it. Few sedans and not many white - I was being really picky.

Maybe theyre limit the run so they can release a Speed3. LOL kidding. Yes I've been looking for a replacement sGT hatch manual for my iGT as a trade in. Not many available in the color i want.

I think dealers have a hard time moving top of the line 3s.....so they don't order many. The ones I've seen had been sitting on dealer lots a long time. Heck, when I bought mine 3 months ago, a dealer still had a couple 2014 sGTs. I live in western MA and had to travel to New Haven to pick mine up AND get the best deal.

Yeah, I'm wondering if moving them might be the case. When I first started looking in January of this year, like I said, there was an abundance of them on dealer lots -- I could pretty much choose whatever color combo I wanted. Now there's nothing. I'm going to keep a sharp eye on it and see if they increase their orders in Q1, but something tells me they won't be. I'm betting I'll need to be aggressive to get the one I want when the 2017 models start arriving.
