My comments were directed at your assumptions that this was the production version and you were making your decision off of that. If you need a new car now, then get one. But if you can wait, why not wait until the end of the year when you will most likely see the full production version? Not sure why you need to get upset about it? We don't know if this is the Toyota/Scion/Subaru version yet. Why don't we just wait?



Btw, who said the engine is gonna have 200hp? That is still speculation at this point.
Well that explains a lot it's a scion, it has a 4cyl engine, if it has more than 200 how much more will it have? 220? Oh man huge difference. The production model, I can already tell, will be dumbed down to the Tc level.

All we know for sure about the engine is that it will be a boxer engine, NA, 2liter, have d4-s, and "get great gas mileage." Want to add to that?

Great gas mileage = low power. There is your confirmation.

Front brake rotors are something like 11.25" or 286mm Dual piston slider calipers are better than one but not very exciting.

Anyone else see what looks to be front headlight washers [the square covers below the headlights]. Also fog lights in the outer bumper polygons with the turn signals, and [gasp] LED DRL's in headlight cluster. Looks to be a projector beam headlight

Also note the mini shark-fin antenna on the roof; no stupid whip antenna!

Kinda ignorant aren't you. The C5 Z06 gets 30 MPG hwy. I've peaked 37 MPG with my Exige S during a road trip.

You drive a Corvette. Why are you even interested in this car? What did you expect from it?
