Here's a couple pics from the LA auto show. Thing looks too good to be true in person. Wonder how it's really going to look during production.

I think photoshop makes up most of the different between these two pictures. Still cool though.

Wow, it even has the good old yellow oil dipstick... just like the E30 M3!

There's no photoshop... what you see in the above picture is the FT-86 with TRD parts (Toyota Racing Development).

530HP & 448TQ = 0-60 in 3.1 sec.



VS:

620HP & 516TQ = 0-60 in 3.6 sec.

Subaru's rear lights are quite different from the concept BUT very similiar to those from the Toyota... you already know how it will look like.








Do you like Valencia Orange with the interior orange stitching?

Boxer engine...





From inside...






Valencia orange exterior and Alcantara with orange stitching interior... 1M anyone?!




Boot space and... rear seats are a joke... 911 anyone?!





Finally, the most controversial part of the exterior look... the rear end! It seems the Subaru won't be much different...

Without a proper boot and back seat leg room space and with a rear end look not so well sorted out... we can definitely say that the only comparisons we can make to the E30 M3 are from a driving experience perspective. Don't you think so?!

Of course. Only in driving experience. Let us wait for reviews, I think it could even surpass the M3 E30. To say the truth I waited very long for the BMW Z2, lightweight reardrive sportscar. But till today, there is still no sign of life of it.
