yup. and its supposedly going to be built in the scooby factory. and i think the car was designed mainly by subaru? the car is more subaru than toyota

anyways im not a fan of the looks really, but thank god theyre bringing out a new rwd turbo setup. the world need em.

It is pretty ricey, but I'm sure it'd be toned down since we're looking at a concept. Should be a great selling car as long as Toyota can convince the world that they didn't build it, so there shouldn't be any gas pedal issues.

I don't see how that is ricey in any way... Maybe the lights on the front bumper... but I think it looks pretty bad ass.

My thoughts exactly. I hate it when it feels like the process is becoming an unfocused trainwreck.

On the other hand, the 350Z had at least one major redo before they started down the right path.

(Remember this?)
