From the article:
The countdown has started for the new fortwo cabrio, a particularly iconic variant of the new model series. The open-top two- seater will have its world premiere in September at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt. The new smart cabrio will launch in the United States in early summer of 2016.

Despite being early in the new year, there are already plans for a number of different smart events in 2015.  While many of these events are based in the US, Canadians are more than welcome to attend those as well.  There are also a few Canadian events in the planning phases as well, so have a look at those too!
 
Probably the first large event of the year is the Ohio April Fools rally, taking place April 10th-12th, 2015.  The rally will be held somewhere around Central Ohio (Location not yet determined), and is being organized by jwight.  Last years rally ended with the group touring the Ohio State Reformatory, the filming location of The Shawshank Redemption.  For further details on this years event, click through to the SCoA thread HERE
 
The next major event of the year is the Midwest Smart Rallye, "Meet me in St. Louie".  This event is taking place in St. Louis, Missouri from June 5th to 7th.  This one is shaping up to be a big event, with 20 cars signed up already.  For more details on the midwest rally, click HERE
 
Proposed for the same time frame is the Summer Blat, starting in Red Deer, Alberta, and ending in Lake Louise, Alberta.  The schedule outlined puts the event as running from June 5th until June 8th.  If you are interested in this event, post over in the thread HERE
 
Following up after that is the ever popular "OutSMARTing the Dragon" event.  Running from August 20th to August 23rd, this event pits drivers against the twisty-turny Tail of the Dragon, also known as US 129.  The Tail of the Dragon is an 11 mile stretch of road through the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, with 318 curves.  The event will be based out of the Fontana Village Resort in Fontana Dam, North Carolina.  For the full details, follow THIS link.
 
Finally, one event which is still in the "gathering interest" phase, is a 2015 Summer Driver's Training event that Mike T is looking to put together.  The event would be at a track (potentially Pitt Meadows or the Mission Raceway) in BC.  This event also holds the potential of being another 10th Anniversary of Smart in Canada event.  Because this event is just gathering interest, there is no set date.  If you are interested in participating in this, or would like to provide some input, look HERE

A separate registry of the smart fortwo 450's that were imported into the USA by G&K has now been put online!  Currently we have 114 of the cars in our registry, and are looking to find and enter the information for the rest of them.  The registry can be found HERE, or under the "Car Registries" menu at the top of the page.  The same disclaimer as we applied for the Canadian registry applies here:

    @  steveyfrac : (25 May 2016 - 04:49 PM) I'm not sure if I'd go that route, even if it is available, but it'll be interesting to test drive anyways
    @  Mike T : (25 May 2016 - 04:00 PM) yes that too would be nuts.
    @  Huronlad : (25 May 2016 - 04:59 AM) Hopefully what smart USA has stated about the sport suspension is not accurate for Canada.
    @  Huronlad : (25 May 2016 - 04:52 AM) I should have clarified that smart USA is hinting that a pseudo BRABUS will come to the US.  Without the tuned drivetrain, there really would be no reason not to have both transmissions available in this market.
    @  Mike T : (24 May 2016 - 08:34 PM) We're getting a BRABUS? And only with the slightly slower accelerating 6 speed auto?? Bizarre.
    @  steveyfrac : (24 May 2016 - 07:52 PM) Source on the Sport not being available with the 5spd?

    It'll let you configure it that way on the website, and I got a sales guy saying he's got one on the boat that I can test drive in a few weeks...
    @  dmoonen : (24 May 2016 - 12:53 PM) Ew
    @  Huronlad : (24 May 2016 - 09:59 AM) The BRABUS will also not be available with the 5-speed.
    @  Huronlad : (24 May 2016 - 09:41 AM) Sport suspension is not available with the 5-speed.
    @  steveyfrac : (23 May 2016 - 07:34 PM) Has anyone test drive the new 2016 Smarts yet? With a stick?

    Might consider a Passion / Prime with a stick and Sport package if it drives nice.
    @  dmoonen : (18 May 2016 - 07:09 AM) Honestly if youve driven one its so well put together, the NA VR6 engine just amazing.
    @  booneylander : (18 May 2016 - 03:42 AM) That's a beauty! I always wanted to TDI-swap one. Diesel AWD!
    @  dmoonen : (16 May 2016 - 06:40 AM) Just bought a MK4 R32. . . dam the music the exhaust makes in addictive
    @  Mike T : (14 May 2016 - 08:22 AM) HO-dor
    @  Francesco : (13 May 2016 - 09:55 AM) TUL-sa
    @  Mike T : (13 May 2016 - 06:17 AM) Hee hee
    @  DrZaius : (13 May 2016 - 04:14 AM) oops I thought this was the search box
    @  DrZaius : (13 May 2016 - 04:13 AM) tesla
    @  Francesco : (12 May 2016 - 05:56 PM) Yawn
