What will happen after tommorow?

This forum has been my water and bread lately, its the first place I go when I get online, I spend time at work I shouldnt be browsing the forum looking for the latest update(like right now).

But after all this overwhelming information, constant leaks, and now finally the official production reveal of the car, what will happen now?

There will be no more rumors to discuss, no more arguing over weight, if it should be turbo or not(although I am sure those arguments will continue)

What are your thoughts?

Discuss...

We go back to what we've done before.

Either..
a) talk about what we wanna do to our cars..
b) give advice to people who want to buy a house
c) are we waiting for different specs?
d) Zombies
e) We'll talk about how shitty the economy is some more
f) aliens
g) sports
h) lolcats

hmm? We still have Detroit and don't forget the cars will travel with the show, DC's show is after Detriot I'm going to go see them then. And then we'll talk about 1million and 1 things and qq about how we couldn't get our hands on one either BRZ or FRS, then praise the person that does get it first. Then watch the members increase and Meets start to happen

oh and 2 years later... STI and more HP for all models FML to all that got it early LOL jkjk

Lol we will be doing this every time they want to refresh the line. And that's after we see people video reviewing the cars (in english), members showing off their new cars, working to find how to fix common issues (if any).

Then soon, this forum will become popular enough to attract many sponsors, so we can get discounts. Then when that happens, we can compare the best aftermarket goodies.

Meanwhile we wait for it to be officially test-drive-able (another thing we can talk about), we can see the manufacturers that want to get involved with this car.

Discuss
argue
?????
profit

my prediction, after tomorrow shortly after (1-2 months) some major tuning houses will receive word that they have been selected to be part of an early development project to produce aftermarket support for buyers upon launch.

What we will see is an onslaught of information regarding tuning and aftermarket parts. From;
Mines
Trust/Greddy
HKS
Brembo/Stoptec/Wilwood
Powerhouse Amuse
Zero Sports
Cusco

and big name aero kit companies will try to get on this ASAP. or is already in sketch plans already like I am, getting it ready for molding and test fit for the first month at launch.

One the articles mentioned that some Tuners have already received pre-production models and will have them to show at TAS

http://speedhunters.com/archive/2011...toyota-86.aspx

Quote:
In fact Toyota held a presentation of the car for members of the Nippon Auto Parts Aftermarket Committee (NAPAC) a few weeks ago, probably releasing technical drawings, measurements and so on to allow tuners and parts manufacturers to get a head start in the development of the first few upgrades. With the 86 going on sale in Japan in March/April I bet some "pre-production" cars have already been given to the biggest tuners out there so that a few show cars can be prepared in time for the 2012 Tokyo Auto Salon in January.
