    I don't see how a stated Canadian start price of 64,990 Cnd Dollars supports your notion that dealers will mark up prices......

    I don’t think you understand what MSRP means.

    MSRP is the price on the sticker for the car new, not the Kelley Blue Book value.

    With that being said, used cars are irrelevant and the $64k Canadian is MSRP and is irrelevant to the MSRP in the US

    My point was only that the Carrera GT IS poorly designed from a safety aspect and it’s design was the cause of Paul Walkers death. I’m not saying he wouldn’t have sustained huge injuries but it was specifically the fire that killed him. I honestly can’t believe Porsche won based on that huge design flaw. There have been several car fires due to this design flaw on this specific car.

    I do agree that any car can cause death in a crash. I do have issues with the Carrera GT specifically though.

    The main reason behind the lawsuit was the fact that PWs seatbelt didn't open for him after crashing

    Also true and also a contributing factor but I don’t think it was the main reason they should have focussed on

    Well he crashed doing like 90mph into a pole. I doubt there are many cars that you would even be conscious in after a crash like that, much less able to even get out of the car.

    True but my point is still if the tank was better place or designed then it wouldn’t have caught fire and he wouldn’t have died. Plus it’s a Carrea GT with supposedly more modern safety features (apart from the death tank under the passenger seat) if nick hogan can survive going over 100mph in a supra and crash into a tree with no injuries then they should have too.

    There is no way of explaining away the poor design and placement of that fuel tank in that car.

    I’d like to say the TRD concept is nice... but something seems “too busy”. And “too much”.
    Don’t know if it’s maybe cos they parts aren’t the same colour as the body or what, but I like the normal car better.

    do you think there will be a TRD production version like bmw has with the M series? TRD has been aftermarket only i thought. if an M equivalent is coming, i’d rather wait for that

    The M equivalent would be the Supra GRMN, and I'm waiting for that too :p or other better versions of the A90 in the future
