Curious what tuning options will be like. The CTR Hondata tune is pretty good, but stock CTR cooling is so weak that it certainly can't hold those boost levels through multiple runs or track usage. Hopefully Toyota did a better job with cooling.

If they brought this car to North America I would buy this and you could hold me to it. Would be an awesome little year round city commuter. Much more of an interesting car than the Civic.

im very interested in one too. looking forward to getting a test drive in. i just hope they give it some longer legs in 5th and 6th than the FRS. That was extremely buzzy trying to commute at 80-85mph on the highway due to its short gearing.

So, Toyota developed this car from scratch by themselves. From everything I've seen and read, it's a homerun.

My question is: Why couldn't they do this with the Supra?

Two comically dissimilar cars, but I'd buy either if available.
