Toyota making a fun car again!

http://www.leftlanenews.com/toyota-p...r-revival.html

2.0L Subaru flat-4 200hp RWD coupe, priced under 20k, being called the GT

2.5L Turbo Subaru flat 4 -300hp, AWD coupe. Probably priced similar to STi. Being called the GT4

If we can start putting things together with old rumors. We can also expect the RWD coupe to weigh around 2500lbs. 200hp, with that curb weight, RWD and price. Sign me up.

The GT4 should be a blast as well but id go for the RWD. Being toyota, the aftermarket will be all over these cars.

I know alot of people here prob dont like japanese cars, but i think its a great thing for the enthusiasts that a huge company like Toyota is going to return to making a car for enthusiasts.

I'm a huge fan of the boxer platform. the balance from such a low CoG format, and the symmetrical transmission layout are awesome.

My guess is this will be the next level up in the Scion brand.

Same here. I love the boxer engines. The RWD version with a boxer should be a great handling platform. Hopefully toyota will sell it with an LSD or at least offer a TRD LSD option.

I've been following this subaru/toyota car for awhile, sounds like things are finally starting to come together. Whats best is it should be coming out right around the time ill be looking to add another car.

Really?^

I usually don't associate the term "overpriced" with either Toyota or Subaru.

^ I've always thought their cars were a bit too pricey. I thought the last Supra was a great car, but it's price compared to an RX7 was ridiculous.

Maybe it's just me.....never been a big Toyota fan.
