Yeah, could be on a Lexus engine but I'm pretty sure Yamaha wasn't involved with this Subaru engine. The D-4S was strictly Toyota/Denso. It'd be cool though if Yamaha were to actually tune the heads...

Well then it's probably the updated version of the official German circuit car I mentioned. Mods like that are never going to make it to a production model in the USA.

It's just some tuner's car. Not likely to be anything official Toyota or Subaru. They already created a circuit version of the GT86 in Germany with even nicer components.

That's why I insist on my friends not smoking in or around my car. They get pissed but I don't want ashes floating around and potentially starting fire. It's a stupid and expensive habit anyway.

Good to see more competition at the highest level - especially from the Japanese. I wish they'd of just revealed it though. But I'm sure they don't want to give away too much yet.

When I went to demo an FR-S one time, the car was idling terribly when we turned it on like you described. I'm sure it had been sitting for a few weeks though.

Cool story bro. It is so frustrating that people will steal cars like this. We work so hard for these things and they think they can just waltz by and take it. I'm glad he got caught and is in prison.
