    I searched before posting this. I don't think it's a repost.

    If the Toyota home office approves this, we're gonna have a new contender in the 21st Century Muscle Car wars. :eek3: It's aimed squarely at the CTS-V and GTO.

    Wonder how the v8 throws off the weight distribution. I don't recall it being that good in the IS300.

    The designers don't care, since 90% of buyers will slap a 400lb system in the trunk anyway :bigthumb:

    Considering its an all-aluminum V8, and the stock 2JZ is a long-ass iron-block motor, it might actually have no effect at all.

    There may be a V8 IS....but it will be nothing like that i am sure...thats a concept...so forget all that bullshit they say about the crazy suspension and brakes and what not...

    And its still not a Sports car...nor a muscle car...

    Its still a POS though

    if i remember correctly, that is the largest you can fit on there without flaring the fenders.

    but you can put 275's on a 9.5in rim...so that should be fine.
