Anyone know the history on this yellow, non-release series ‘15 FR-S?

The 3 hatch c pillar is totally wrong, though. Possibly one of the worst hatch looks I’ve seen in the modern era.

Do WRC rules still require transverse mount inline 4 drivetrain? That would prevent Subaru from getting back into it (unless, or course, they rebadged a Mazda 2 or Yaris).

I’m biased though. My One Lap of America race car uses those colors.

The tire on the TRD has a thinner sidewall than the normal. They are basically trading tire sidewall for rim when they bump to the 18” wheel.

2019 Toyota 86 TRD Edition

The tire is 3/4" taller. That means that the vehicle itself rides 3/8" higher (the upper half of the tire doesn't add to the ride height).

GTIs are great cars. You will enjoy it. My MKV was a blast. I nearly cried when I sold it, but it was the right choice. That and my FR-S are probably the two cars I truly miss owning.
