So Toyota has been pushing for a sedan, but Subaru is not agreeing.



I like it.

According to an insider "Scion reportedly wants the model to go on sale in early 2016 but its future remains in doubt as Toyota and Subaru would have to agree to the project."

So I went and looked at BRZs briefly yesterday. That's not a lot of car for $28k sticker.

a bespoke chassis with a bespoke engine, one of the best handling cars built in the last 25 years, and the lightest RWD coupe you can buy in the US.

Plus $28k is the absolute most you would pay for that car.

Wondering if I should try my luck! I guess with thousands trying to add the same product at the same time, it is basically impossible to get it.

But, that car--any car--for $1? That's gotta be the best deal in the history of cars?!

^^ Yup that's a ME site only.

And speaking of ME, "Toyota GT 86 Sedan concept confirmed for Dubai Motor Show next week" Actually, the show starts tomorrow!


^ Speaking of Lexus IS, the new Lexus IS Coupe is out, and it has been renamed as Lexus RC, and this GT 86 sedan looks kinda like the Lexus RC

Sure, except like 700lbs lighter.

Funny you say that, b/c over on the FT86 forum I stated that Toyota is just coming full circle, back to the original 2000 Toyota Altezza.

^ Oh shit. 2,800lbs ish? I've got to look into this...

"The RC350 badging in these pictures is a good indication the tried and true 3.5-liter V6 will be a popular choice"


300hp and 2,800lbs sounds fun. But if it's with that 6 spd auto, well... That would be a disappointment.

^^ seems like you are mixing up 2 cars.

the comment about 700 lbs lighter was not for the lexus RC, but for the GT 86 sedan.

the Lexus RC is a... Lexus! so it will come in at 3,500 lbs i guess.

^^^exactly

^^^^ true, but it's output of 215 hp is similar to the FA20's 200. Not a far stretch to compare them if a sedan was made off the FT86's chassis.
