Then that ending mostly in 2030, and then completely by 2035.

These models aren't made for volume, they are made as icons for the brand. They wont re-engineer it that fast correct, they will just stop it.

My guess is that a rebooted Celica (outed recently in trademarks) is the electric model they are planning to take over the low cost sports car segment for them.
Boom.

Exactly the same, I have a '17 PP, and the handling and brake feel are so good. I would definitely consider an upgrade once they add the PP to the 2022 refresh.

Depends on what the specs of the STi and 400Z are.

The 400Z may not show up for quite a while. 2021 is unlikely.

Iíd buy a first year copy but my 2013 BRZ only has 52,000 miles on it. It could take another 5-6 years to hit 100k. Unless it gets hit or electric gremlins set in Iíll wait.

If they came out with an electric all wheel drive with realistic 400 mile range and fast charge, Iíll sign up immediately if not sooner.

Yeah, as recently as December I was hearing "Spring 2021", but now I'm hearing "Spring 2022".

Because that's the car being designed, Electric AWD twins. You said thats what you want?

Personally I can't stand the thought of having a 'sports' electric. Family transport car, sure, but sound, no gear changing, always online, data reports to HQ... Bleh!

Just get a used or new 1st gen. You'll have it now and enjoy life just as much if not more.

The pandemic has changed everything, including timing of new car launches.
