That's the difference between a private distributor, Southeast Toyota that makes some of its own rules and services dealers in the, what else, the Southeast, and Toyota Logistics Services in the other ten distributorships that conform to more restrictive Toyota Motors North America policies and procedures.

It's just a mass-produced car, I see plenty of entry / mid level Porsches transported the same way.

On the other hand, last week I saw an Aventador SVJ that just landed at IAH being hauled away on an open flatbed, but at least it was covered like this:

Saw one of these at the local Auto Show.

Much nicer and better looking in person than pictures.

Starts at 65k here up in Canada though....(yikes, double the starting price of the 86)

Not sure if I'd go for it though. At that price range I think i'd be leaning towards Luxury grand tourer as opposed to sports car (so like RC), especially without any manual option available.

It would be enough for me to change my unimpressed view of the aesthetics of the body if the bullsh!t vents could be useful, and not just pretend pathways of potential cooling to sucker the consumer.

I'm pretty sure you can just pop out the plastic inside the vents and then they become functional. That's what I read anyways

The GT4 concept had the fake vents opened up, even the door vent. Most are still trying to figure out the function of that one though.







The passenger side bumper grille has ducting for brake cooling on the factory MKV.
