Passion eh? The biggest market of Toyota hasn't seen it yet.

Love hearing insight into their design intentions.

I was watching a similar video for Acura with Damon Schell and Dave Marek (responsible for the recent ugliness and "beak"). I looked at the guys and thought, you can't even choose a good looking suit, tie, or haircut; chances are you're not going to design an attractive car.

"Dezi" Nagaya is not that way, he's a stylish dude, and he's made a stylish car.
