    Maybe they will also let the press take it for a spin as well, like with the Z4 in France.

    I am curious if Toyota will present the same vehicle as on the FOS in this event, or if it will be a different version or spec...

    I have read on other online platforms that the one used at Goodwood was a US spec. :dunno:

    335HP huh? I know, i know, horsepower isn’t everything. But I expected just a tad more. Nothing is concrete yet so we’ll see.

    We need videos of the event. I'm just curious if there's a rev limiter so it doesn't scream as they rather let the public hear that during a press showing.

    Interestingly, Toyota AU have contacted the state Toyota club about a major event this Saturday. Fingers are crossed for something A90 related, but I seriously doubt it, being Australia.

    SEMA would be an odd place for a North American debut.

    It won't be the mass public debut (there has been speculation that's LA), but it has been chosen as a debut location to the tuner market apparently.

    Like with anything though, who knows if that will end up being the case.

    True.

    Who would've thought the first time we'd formally see the A90 in action would be at Goodwood FS. This process has been anything but conventional.

    Hmm, all the camo on the headlight has been removed. I wonder where this is at?

    Toyota is literally strip teasing us right now. Peeling away one layer little by little :spaz:
