Wasn't the previous 300 mm lens retired at about 12 years old?

Does this suggest that  there will be a new version along soon, possibly with VR?

And given the price of the new 80-400, does this suggest that a 300F4 AF-S G VR Super-ED-IF N will cost ... $2500?   (And still have a crap tripod collar).
