Yeah, there all the same if you say so
Design similarities. Nobody was saying they are "the same".

Although you did give some great example of why some design points are classic and frequently used and others died a fast and unlamented death never to be seen again.

Lot of truth in here. They're very capable cars.

The sounds are fantastic too. My Dad had one that was making mid 500whp back in the early 2000s, and - while it isn't even close to what's capable - it blew me away as a young kid in the passenger seat. I thought it was the coolest car in the world, then I grew up, and my taste completely changed. While I loved the car back then, it's too ricey for me now when I look back at it lol.

Yeah, hopefully they stay pretty true to the concept. We will see!

$39,950 - Base model with 6MT and 400hp TT V6 *Fingers Crossed*

Or ditch the turbos, give me a N/A 3.5 V6 and sell it at $34K. That would make me super-duper happy.

Also I think they intentionally made the front bumper and rear lights look like the last Supra to fuck with spy photographers and the internet. It won't be that in the final product.

Too the car...

I think it is a safe bet that the body structure is a lock. If the car is going to have any of the crazy arches, scoops, or other elements of the FT-1 concept it would be apparent here. You don't just widen the car at the last minute. I also think that means we can rule out hybrid tech or other wiz-bang elements. Where would you put it and how would it be cooled?

I see the simplicity of the sheet-metal as being a clear indication of a very intense round of cost-engineering to bring the care in line with the V8 Muscle cars and possibly the G37/ Q60. People talking about a C7 or even GT-R competitor were way off.

I dunno, this doesn't look like some cobbled together mule. It is apparent that they are fast approaching production so you can't really decide to go back and redesign the chassis. The exception being the front bumper and headlight design that may yet mirror some of the FT-1.

We have seen arguments over test mules less complete than this with people claiming the final product will be completely different. They rarely are. (Hyperbole)

But I want this to be a sub-$40K car. Since we likely won't be getting a more powerful 86 anytime soon, this may be the next financially-illogical step.

Brilliant!

And @mazeroni i hate to say it, but I really hope you're wrong. Sub 40k for that performance level means it has to sacrifice a lot to get to that price point. I hope it's 60-80k, well equipped and plenty powerful. Hybrid stuff has been all but guaranteed since the beginning, and I'm okay with that too. This isn't a back to basics car, this is is supposed to be Alduin the World Eater.

Edit: Oh yeah, and Toyota has already scrapped a mule before this and started fresh, but most people aren't aware of that. They'll happily do it again if it means getting it right.
