    I can't find a larger version, but here is how it sits next to a 2000GT.

    ^ looks like they went to the 2000GT roots rather than the Supra...Honestly, those two sitting besides each other, gives me a different perspective.

    I was thinking the same thing about the 2000gt yesterday , 2 seater , 6 cylinder long bonnet etc. The only difference is the market positioning which in my opinion is good for the most of us :)

    Yeah, they definitely took cues from the 2000GT. Not necessarily a bad thing, however, I still wish they would have called it a "GT" or something along those lines. The MKV is more of a modern day budget 2000GT than a Supra. Now if we could only get a manual transmission on this thing....:banghead:

    Agreed, unless they pull some tricks.

    This is looking more like a refined and powerful, FRS and I don't mean that lightly.

    Yup. This car should be the second gen FRS.

    Loaded 86 (as they are called today), are around 32k. Now add 50 more HP and a
    New body... if they ask for 40k for this (whatever it is), it can for sure be a new and more powerful 86 with a higher price tag.

    loaded? for a cheap car that is focused entirely on driving, what more do you need than 3 pedals and what equipment do you think is actually added? The only 86s that go beyond $30 K are special editions that don't really buy you any more "fun" than the cheapest possible 86.. People can't accept that the twins are brilliant for the price. Not saying everyone has to like what they offer but to think they could have come out with a better interior, more power, etc for $25 K is silly AF..

    Well.. don’t they have the package with the better brakes, wheels and some suspension bits?

    sure there are a few performance upgrades & special paint that you can pay extra for but you would be very hard pressed to find anyone who claims those things are worth the extra fun per dollar premium..the small upgrades are nice to have but certainly no where near being considered as mandatory. Your views on the 86 a bit skewed, before taxes most people pay far less than $30 K...

    Well, do you really think he'll do a supra with same power or more and below the gt86 prices?
    I think we should not dream too much: rofl:
