    Doug's video talks about the fake vents and Toyota leaving those in for aftermarket tuners to exploit. What it really means is that they plan on opening those up in future high performance versions and wanted to save cost on bodywork.

    I wouldn't be so sure, they aren't releasing the 4 cylinder in the states and most definitely are not developing or testing the 6 any more. Doubt there will be any "high performance" versions, if anything they are currently developing and testing the 2022 or 2024 model components, if one is to be sold at all

    I really like it. If it came with three pedals, I would be very tempted. Unfortunately it would have to replace the RS as my modern-reliable daily driver and... I am still loving my RS!

    From Doug's review it certainly sounds like they're posturing for some iterations from the base model, I'm excited to see what they cook up. I hope they do more than they've done with their 86 editions, which have largely been the "10% stiffer springs and shocks, a unique paint color, alcantara seat centers, and a unique badge" type of thing.

    This is exactly what I'm expecting, unfortunately

    I mean, what did you expected from a BMW platform? The 2001 BMW Z3 I had weighed 3200 lbs, the same as the WRX that was parked next to it at the time.

    This surprises me

    0-60
    3.8s

    12.3s

    Excellent figures.
    Shame that the low volume numbers means I'll never see one.

    Already spotted a new Supra on the autobahn last Thursday morning....

    It was loaded on a tow truck, right next to 2 police cars, who were wrecked as well. Just a good morning thought: NEED FOR SPEED, gone wrong

    I guess they were lying about the detuned engine after all. I'm curious how these do on the dyno compared to BMW's advertised with higher hp numbers. Those are amazing numbers for the stated power.
