Is there a way to get this list? Possibly from Ford? I have not seen the car in person and I'd like to and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Your best bet would be to call Ford. When the BRZ came out I called Subaru to find out exactly where it would be shown and they told me without any issues. Maybe email [email protected].

I didn't even bother to call for NAIAS since I know there's no chance in hell it wouldn't be there.

It should show up to LA, but I doubt you would go there if Detroit is too far. NY is many months away (hell the car might be out by then).

They of course did not know, I called them about a month ago.

That's weird. Oh well I'd expect it to show up at the major autoshows but none of the small ones.

Just found this about the Orange County Auto Show for you fellow SoCal people. I'm not sure how to attach a file, so here's the copy/paste.

I am expecting it to be displayed at SEMA Show 2015 this year. I attend it every year as an exhibitor and I will definitely do a video and photo cover for everyone. You can follow Chicago Pneumatic Tools USA Facebook page and you will get all of the updates necessary. And for those who encounter this beautiful piece of engineering, please, video and detailed photos :) :)

I honestly don't bother with autoshows anymore. They seem like a waste of time. I went to the Boston one when the ST came out to see it and what do you know on a podium blocked off. So if the ST was, I can guarantee you the RS will. The other thing being information, we are on a forum and most likely know way more then any one at the show. Seeing a color though, that I get :)

It will be unfortunate if it is roped off. However, for me, I really don't know if I like a car, aesthetically anyway, until I see it in person (especially that Nitrous Blue). With some of the footage we've seen so far with people being able to get inside the car, wouldn't you say there's a good chance it won't be roped off? Or is that footage from people with a "VIP status" so to speak?

Looking at the oc auto show page, it looks like they have a nitrous blue RS on display
Confirmed they do.
I took some pictures and posted on the Picture and Video Thread.
Understandably they don't allow anyone to go into the car. Even you pre-odered lol

Oh there is a really good chance it is roped off, on a podium with a Ford PR girl talking about stuff we already know :) I totally agree seeing the car in person and almost drove to NY when it was there, I just came to the conclusion that NB is a must to see, but I would also love to see all the other colors. That means waiting until they hit dealers anyways.

I think you have a better chance at a really small show that happens to have an RS or one of the enthusiasts/community type events Ford has been bringing them to.

Or wait until the end of the last day, you can almost always get people to let you sit in them when it's at the very end of a show. I've had good luck with that at least.

Can you bring paint swaths from Home Depot to compare Nitrous Blue or Stealth Grey if you get the chance? And tell us which one is most similar?
