I was around since the beginning. I was close to pulling the trigger on the Civic Si but eventually waited. I don't wanna wait another 5 years to see this damn car to make it to production. I might not live that long!!

It would be cool to see a new Toyota Supra Paul Walker edition.

Why? Because someone got paid an obscene amount of money to act in a car movie series?

Need a burned one.


You know that it was just a movie right? Those cars don't do everything like they do on the screen. They wrecked 3 of them to shoot a total of about 5 minutes worth of footage. Half the standing shot were done with just shells or custom made cars with totally different engines


It is a pet peeve of mine that people have mad love affairs with cars that they have never driven but have seen do amazing things on movies. It isn't real!

Yeah, I think I'm well aware that F&F from humble beginning street racers to becoming the Avengers isn't real. Movie production companies use shells to be cost effective because they're always crashing cars. It's bad when the proportions look off and sound completely different. Need for Speed is an example of crap shells and dummy cars.

I see your point but there will always be those fanboys.

My buddy's was a legit 9 second (slicks at the track) car.

To touch on how Godly the car was, (and point out that they can actually handle if you're not Fast and Furiousing them) it had a static 53:47 f:r weight distribution with an iron block inline six in the front. The 86 had to cheat with people in the car to match that, despite a short aluminum flat four. Also proper suspension. No front MacStruts.

They were pretty much untouchable tuned until Nissan released the twin turbo, nearly self driving, AWD computer-mobile GTR.

But that really did set the benchmark high, so I actually don't have that high of a hope for the new one.






...unless it looks like an angry catfish.
