    If it's light (2700lbs-ish) and has an optional LSD it could be awesome :bowdown:

    It would look good in person because the car is really small, supposedly shorter than the 2nd gen mr2.

    I lost faith in Toyota as far as enthusiast cars, and i'm split on the design.... but i don't like the styling of many modern cars.

    It'll have to be extremely impressive as far as driving feel and performance for me to seriously consider it, but it'll probably be numb, boring and fat like most cars are now a days.

    That said, I currently own a Subaru and a Toyota. :x

    This is the split venture. The chassis is supposedly a shortened Impreza chassis, and the concept has an NA 2L Boxer engine.

    I want Toyota to get back to 90's status. <3 Supras and MR2s, but I don't think this can live up to those standards.

    Nah supposed to be the new AE86 from what I have heard. Certainly not a Supra, very few motors can compete with 2JZ, that shit was damn near bulletproof.

    That's the thing, there's no reason really that it couldn't handle like an s2000 (well, with struts instead of wishbones, but the m3 has struts and it is amazing so it could be done), except not quite as fast, and with a more usable powerband for the street. Combine that with good looks and solid build quality, and they might have something.

    Is it? I thought I heard it was a new chassis. If it's really based on the impreza that's worrying.

    The fact Toyota is run by terrible faggots is why it won't handle like an S2000.

    The Impreza doesn't have a bad chassis, but it's not going to be anything remarkable, like the purpose built S2000 chassis.

    They're trying to hit the low-$ price point, and developing a whole new, one-off chassis isn't going to do that, even if thy do rob the parts-bin for the old Impreza engine and whatnot.

    I'm so sick of this fucking shape. Enough with this shit already, I don't give a fuck how "aerodynamic" it is, it's fucking ugly.
