I am certainly not arguing that it will be anything hefty, because we are talking about several pounds really. I was simply mentioning the downsides to that style suspension. I think the biggest of course still goes back to the engine being too wide and the room this suspension style takes up.

Can't tell with those shots since they're at different angles.

The front end design of the first gen gives it a more wider look, and it looks much more aggressive, in a weird angry ninja turtle way.

Last gen = Angry and toothless

Next gen = Poker face and more pedestrian friendly

The differences you are seeing are most likely an artifact of the different lens focal lengths (wide angle / zoom) used for the two shots. The dimensions hardly differ IIRC, but those photos make the greenhouse of the new car seem about 30% smaller which is nonsensical.

Iím not sure if thatís a good thing but that surely looks kind like the red on some Supra.

I think the MR2 red was a lot deeper

Understeer basically doesn't happen
Or perhaps Jonny was never in a passenger seat next to an F1-level driver who knows how to trail brake properly? :P

Not sure if it's been covered, but can anyone confirm if the sliding seats now have a ratcheting setup?
I hated how the seats in the 1G cars would just slam back into you (usually in the tenders right between the waist and the ribs) if you leaned in to load/unload stuff from the rear seat.
Nothing crazy, but a minor tweak that would make living with the car so much easier...

i read that it was either getting better sliding seats or getting a larger displacement engine since development costs to improve both was too much
