So we have a new 86? Slightly more powerful and heavier?

Hope all of that is inaccurate.

Bad news, looks like Toyota USA may have pulled another we want everything under the sun on this car (c. A80) ...

Just confirmed again, car as tested is indeed 3050lbs without all the bloat ware. Good luck Europe and Australia.

I am very disappointed if true.

I figured you’d come and say.. don’t believe that... but you seem to agree with what Guff as heard. :(

(Not a car gurus) But the torque is the same as the Z4, isn't that what really matters?

I asked a source close to Tada about it and he was like, well, Toyota USA may have had their way with the car.

This is something I mentioned a long time ago as an internal issue Tada was fighting to prevent, and maybe he didn't end up winning...

There's still a chance this isn't true or that things could change, but I'm not holding my breath as is sounds plausible given previous comments US management made about wanting a very expensive halo car (FT-1 at the time).

But 65k car with 335hp weighing 3300lbs sounds worse than shooting yourself on the foot. I’m sure someone at Toyota USA mgmt has some sort of brains.

I'm getting some chatter back from other US sources saying they are unaware of this source or any official spec sheet, so now I'm super confused.

Might be a disinformation campaign to knock hype down until close to release.
Your mouth to God’s ears..

@A70TTR

Sooner rather than later I think Toyota better leak some sort of positive because all this bad press is certainly not good for business.
It’s very sad to hear.. I feel like they made a new 86 in a heavier and slightly more powerful variant. It’ll flop just like the 86

I want to just reiterate, this information is not from a vetted source and not from myself or any of our forum insiders.

I do not know if this some sort of misinformation strategy or even an elaborate trolling, but the background checked out and so here is the info presented as it was given to me.
