IDC. They first came out only with 6-cyl in 1964. It's the original definition of Mustang and Pony Car. None of the trims would have survived/existed without it so you admiring those other trims is...

I'd be thrilled if the BRZ had a 270-300hp FA24 turbo but I doubt it will. I expect it to be NA for reasons of liability, weight, and so it doesn't encroach on STI sales. But mostly cost. It would...

9" wide +42 is probably the most extreme I've heard that fits stock suspension with appropriately sized (255) tires (see http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42746). But I woudn't be...

If the 215 tire GR car lapped Tsukuba faster than the 235 tire 14R60, it's counter-intuitive that TRD selected wider 265s for the Griffon 86 to set a Tsukuba record. Especially if all that friction...
