Geneva is March 8. NYC starts March 30.

I know there were worries it wouldn't happen until later this year, but this would be good. I presume they will at least give powertrain details at NYC, but they won't share price, however they will open the order books for reservations because once they reveal the $70K price and scare everyone off it'll all be over!!!

I'm actually hoping one of the trims would have the TT V6 from the LS500. There was a rumor from a Toyota engineer that it will come with it. Maybe somewhere down the line when people start complaining about the lack of power.

When did people complaining about lack of power ever mean anything?

It never meant anything to Toyota but with how it's rumored to have 4 engine/power trims I'm hoping it's in the works.

Ooof.... My ability to read is very very limited, but the Japanese characters in the article are largely not shared with Chinese; I think @n0thing makes a great suggestion to use Google translate's camera app, but the vertical orientation of the text made it difficult... Couldn't get much out of it. 3.8s 0-62mph/100kph is mentioned.
