Probably a few dozen at most. ~500-1000 total cars sold in 94-95 and most of them were red/black/white, like any year of MR2.

the photo looks like Blue Metallic (8J2) only offered in 93. I thought Tropical Blue Metallic (8B6) was darker.

I believe that one is tropical Blue also. Sometimes depending on camera and light condition color looks different.

Blue metallic from 93 is much light than that

I don't know where you got 3 from - its not a common colour but it's not unusual. My wife's car is tropical blue and there's a good few more of them too.

Original 94 JDM Tropical Blue Metallic here and in Arizona! Not sure how many more are here in the states seeing as it was only a JDM factory option. It was never offered as a factory color here in the US market so I’m sure the number is quite low as far as how many are in the US. You can follow me on Instagram @breakin_necksinaz to see pictures!
