An event page has been created on FB...

If that link doesn't work, you can search for "GT-R Fall Festival/Meet - OCT 3-5, 2014".  I will continue to post updates here as well as FB

Regardless of the analogy you apply, I think if you are expecting this car to roll out as a competitor for the GT-R or Corvette or similar level car you will be disappointed.  Given the information we have so far (including the shared platform with the Z4 news), it seems this car is being built to be something on par with the current Z.

So far, interest looks pretty good.  I have not even rolled it out to FB buddies yet.  Did not have time yesterday but will fix that soon.

I've updated the roll call above.

I have my son that particular weekend. Let me see if I can switch up some weekends so I can attend. If all else fails little rooskey comes first.
Totally understand, but you are also welcome to bring him along

I wanna come hang out and go for a drive :)
Bring it on.  I definitely want to gather as many GT-Rs as possible, but that said it should be considered an open event.

Correct... The motor will be shared with BMW, as will be the drivetrain. They killed the Supra.

not really... aimed at same market that Toyota always has for the Supra... something around or slightly better than a Nissan Z or Mazda RX7 but not on level with a Corvette or GT-R.  The last gen of Supra we saw fell exactly in the same range.  The difference was it was very accessible and friendly to modding.  That part is a nice byproduct to have, but has nothing to do with the original manufacturer sales targeting.
