I'm not liking the looks of this. It's starting to look like I'll be getting a Supra Turbo.

Finally, it will really looks like Celica or Honda RSX, but RWD
Nice comparison! This definitely looks MKII, so I have a feeling that it might be the euro version. Just because autoblog said that it was the FR-S doesn't mean it's entirely true. Also, I'll wait for the production version before I make any assumptions. It looks great to say the least!

Looks are really only secondary to me. First is how it performs and how easy it is to work on.

I am curious to hear what xantonin and Sonydigital have to say about this test mule. I think they were 2 of the few that really liked the Mk2 version. Wonder what they will think of this?

Dean I put it this way your looking for a fast car that you want to make faster? That's cool but this car is going, to be more along the lines of moderately quick to start off. Toy/Sub are not going for speed here. This is about being light weight, having great balance, and well managed power. Not saying you can't make it a screamer of a car, but it not what they have been shooting for. They are just looking for a an overall great, fun car. I think the show stopper that you were hoping for isn't here. As for the SS you are talking about getting, you can have that. I don't like the way drive or feel on the road. Its was a 2010 I drove for four days... The ride quality wasn't all that great, but maybe they have gotten better, and I don't know how well they are as track cars. If you get one let me know... I do like the look of the car.

I voted for the MKII myself as well. It looks similar to my eye, but I still have that feeling that the Scion version will be different. I love the huge exhaust on the back, looks like a G35.

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!
Yeah, looks like we are gonna get nickle and dimed on the Advics... oh well... w/e

The car is going to be pretty much the same world wide. Minor differences like side markers, headlamp washers etc are gonna be the only differences. Don't get your hopes up.

Speaking of which,
Toyota, had you been satisfied with showing the MkI concept, this would have been more than fine. No, you had to go and follow up with the Mk II and the incredible looking FR-S. Now the production version will look tame beyond words. Even though you can clearly see what looks like a MkII body () with a MkI style front bumper, in my head you've already ballsed this part up (irrespective of the fact that this could look quite good). Please bring the goods in the power-weight, handling, price and driving dynamics/feel department.

That is all, thanks.

The AE86 is "bland" looking (I like it) but it speaks volumes about itself on the track/curves. I agree, just bring the goods regarding power-weight, handling, price...etc. and all will be good.

What do you guys think of the spoiler on the car? I don't care for the edges of it where it looks too much like the Mk2 version.

Those tail lights look awful though! Fix those up and we'll have a winner, not a pontiac aztec.

It looks like a fairly standard spoiler for a production car. An accent that's not too overboard and not very functional. Hopefully it'll be an option and you can order it without it

I hope so too, but this thing needs a spoiler nonetheless, at least one that will do it justice.

Looks like shit on the concept, doesn't look much better here.

If I wanted an exact copy of an AE86, I'd buy one. 25% of the reason why this car is appealing (to me) is because, it ***looks*** appealing.

Thanks for posting Hachi! :happy0180:

Now we have a better idea of what the final production model might look like; since this isn't covered up.

Is it indeed very bland looking and I can see this car being in the low to mid 20's.

We want something that will look great that won't break our wallets.
