    You didn't ask about a manual transmission option?

    Thats really the only thing to ask at this point..

    I understand. Pls dont be auto only.... :D If it went bad way... there is a 2.0 Supra that can be tuned easily to 300hp with around 1400kg weight... or option B, I get latest possible 1st gen LCI GT86 and tune the hell out of it....
    I'm a sad panda now, U cant belvie the hype i have on new 86 :(

    Tada has been asked that question for months by various people and the answer has been relatively the same.

    Awesome interview! Thanks for your efforts typing it.

    Since A91 is more focused on track and has power boost, maybe we will see official time attack on Nurburgring like Honda FK8?
    Especially A90 mentioned developing in Nurburgring many times but never do time attack doesn't make sense to me.

    One thing I'm very curious is about the ZF transmission, we knew the max torque of 8HP51 is 500Nm(369lb-ft) by spec, compare to the horse power enhancement of A91, torque is almost untouched, does it mean Toyota thinks there is no way to improve for 8HP51?

    Thanks guys. Any info is something at this point since it's a ways out. Ultimately, I got to wait it out anyways, thankfully we live in a world with options. I'll start looking at a plan B if the next gen 86 isn't what we expect it to be.

    I was almost set on new 86, super hyped. It just died :D Even sharper version of the current car with better interior and new exterior, bit more NM/hp while still being N/A and manual.... Shame Tada is not involved, that may be the problem...
    Eh so either last year 1st gen or maybe some 981 Cayman....

    It seems he has said using the front strut supports will cause understeer and oversteer. I got the Cusco and like it a lot (front), and would like to hear from anyone else that has the Cusco, as I know they are out there because the sites that carry these are sold out.

    What do you like about the Cusco braces? I wouldn't expect much of a noticeable difference on the street, though maybe the added stiffness could translate to a more responsive turn-in. I think the issues would arise when pushed harder than you're hopefully doing on the street.

    Well no info from Toyota has been publicly released yet, so there's a bit of hope left lol. Sometimes our expectations are higher than what Toyota is willing to do.

    Great interview thanks, and it seems like the new 86 will be more of the same or even worse!

    More responsive and yes, I am not pushing hard on the street, that would be stupid on my part but for the feel of it, I like it.

    Eh, if Tada is not involved its belivable. + A70TTR infos are usually quite good, aint they? ;)
    Honestly, I dont want turbo, I want super sharp throttle response, so turbo rumours are already meh... Either way, there are always used options...
    Seems like it will be a good car, but not what is expected it to be...
    Wish Honda did new S2ooo, they are killing it with Type R looking at its performance....
