It was in every second or third sentence almost, to the point i was bored of reading it.
yeah that annoyed the crap out of me as well.
Made it seem like they were just robots reading from a piece of paper, and not having any actual passion for the project lol.

Where does this originate from? Was it translated, if not, it's US based?

Thank you @ichitaka05 for making this available for download!
It is a good read.

Having my GT86 parked outside, ready to go for a drive, makes me feel truly privileged.
If I could shake the hand of every designer and engineer involved in making it, I would.
And I would thank them all sincerely for creating such a lovely and incredibly rewarding car available at a price I could afford.
