one source close to Toyota told us that a special low-frills competition version will sell for less than $22,000 and be specially set up for racing with stiffer suspension and beefier brakes. The same model will be used for drifting competitions.
I like this a lot....

A WHOLE lot.

Power windows, door locks, traction control, GPS, on-board computer system thingy need not apply. Luxaries I've lived without since I got rid of my Supra (well, the power options that is) and luxaries I can continue to live without.

Its like getting an awesomer gift for x-mas than you wanted.
"Oh sweet! Its the [thing here] I wanted so badly!"

"Yeah, and it doesn't have all the special crap you didn't want anyways AND comes with a sportier suspension /brake setup AND was $5000 dollars cheaper!"

"HELL YEAH!"

They should bring back the old slogan with this car:
"I love what you do for me, Toyota!"

I wonder this "WORLD'S BEST DRIFTING CAR" will it have a good stock steering angle? AE86 was also well known to have a good turn ratio

Sounds awesome, much like the R-Spec Genesis from Hyundai. I'm also intrigued by Honda getting the CR-Z into racing. Have to wait and see what happens with that.

They need a strait tuner model for the CRZ, get rid of the electric motor, drop about 500lbs and lets get it on. I mean the CRZ is basically the complete opposite of the CRX.

It's heavy, unfocused, has an electric motor (all cars with electric motors have no soul), and basically doesn't excite like the old CRX did. Here's hoping they drop a Si version that fixes all these problems.

CRZ already have the mugen edition still have the electric motor, I dont think the CRZ will have a all gasoline powered performance motor, rumor has it honda will drop the type-r badge dont know if its true or not but thats sad. Personally the type-r badge put honda on top of tuning world sad to see it go.

Wow, that would indeed be a very sad day for Honda. Hope that doesn't happen. Just because it's a hybrid, does that mean that a K20 or K24 wouldn't work without major modding?

I can't wait to buy this car! I just heard the bad news in regards to the rotary engine. they are saying that they may not produce another rotary because of the fuel consumption and also the target performance that Mazda had in mind.

Rotary engine? Do you mean Flat-4 because I don't see any mazda in this thread (other than the mention to the low centre of gravity in the first post).

"Even though its Front Wheel Drive..." ???

As if to say FF cars have superior handling characteristics compared to other platforms?

Pah!

the CRZ will produce 250ftlbs of torque starting at idle.....

140bhp + 250ftlbs of trq = omg throttle response

sure it will be FF but both engines (motors) will be used at the same time.

the car will be extremely light weight and its replacing the s-2000...it will have a stiff chassis no worries.

wow where did you get those numbers from? I believe the torque is suppose to be 107 lb-ft plus 57 lb-ft from the IMA.

That is nowhere near the truth, sorry. The S2000 replacement was canceled. I'd really like to know where you got those numbers from as well as that is way off from what was reported. Check this before making that claim: http://www.autoblog.com/2009/12/08/h...pecs-revealed/

However, this was reported back in February of a possible Type R CR-Z which would be sick. http://www.autoblog.com/2009/02/12/r...yo-motor-show/.
