So because my winter tires can spin easily on pavement, they're a lousy tire?
Just offering a different perspective, but outright grip isn't the only measure of a tire's viability or effective purpose.

I realize this is the Subaru post but whatever.

This story ad just came up in Instagram. Sadly it only opens to the @TOYOTA Instagram page but I usually get a lot of Toyota ads and this is the first I’ve seen with an 86...

If Subaru really does plan to unveil the next gen BRZ “this fall” (in the next month maybe?) then I wonder if this is a teaser ad for Toyota unveiling the GR86 as well.

I have Instagram but I'm not an expert, so correct me if I'm wrong. That looks like an ad you would see while flipping through your recent "Stories" of people you follow.

I think maybe they are just doing a play on that instead of saying, "Swipe to Learn More!" The ad agency probably has a generic template that gets slapped on everything, and this is one of them. It just so happens we are close to the reveal of the new car.

While true, why would they say something like "the story continues" for a RAV4 or Corolla?

Plus that tagline is odd specifically because when you do swipe up on it it just opens their IG profile. It's just weird. Could be bad marketing, too.

But yeah causation != correlation so who knows.

I saw that recently on IG and thought the same, maybe wishful thinking.

Subaru is calling up several journalists to get next gen BRZ review going soon... I sent email to SoA hoping to get invited, but they're ignoring my email.

Sad panda here.

As for Toyota, I'm not sure atm
