Since we're currently shitting on Toyota a bit for their sports car situation... Just get a Type R.

Honda Civic Type R vs. Toyota GR Supra 2.0: Turbo-Four Throwdown!

Someone reading this is no doubt shouting at the screen that it's unfair to compare the top-dog Civic to the no-frills Supra. If there were a way to get the good performance parts on the four-cylinder Supra, we would, but you can't. All this goes to show what a performance bargain the Civic Type R is. For thousands less, you get all the speed parts, a fundamentally better suspension, a faster car, a better-driving car, and the ability to bring friends and their stuff with you. However much the Supra 2.0 might seem like an attractive rear-drive alternative to the Type R, it just ain't even close.

I hate to see it.

To add insult to injury some dealers are marking up the 4 banger Zupra to $50k.

This is what ichitaka05 was probably referring too.

If we throw in overheating as a factor the Type R will lose any matchup

Don't forget the added wait time of skipping out on the first year model in case any major issues need to be ironed out or if things are tweaked for improvements.

That sucks but lucky you had a set. I wish I hadn't sold mine from my FRS, I still have the orange ones on the BRZ I don't know if I want to go clear or smoked or something this time around....

Buy a new one now when I know what I am getting and there is zero risk of being disappointed. Managing to snag a Hakone was just icing on the cake in this scenario since I didn't think I had a hope in hell. The only other ones I would have been interested in were a WRB (so so common) or red BRZ so the availability was still restricted.


Wait and see what the what the 2nd gen would be. This would have gone back to hanging onto the FRS for an undetermined time and could have got caught up in the very real possibility (at that point in time) that there would not have been a 2nd gen. It was also of course a gamble that the 2nd gen could totally suck balls (which it remains to be seen) and then I would not be able to get a new 1st gen of any trim level or colour.


I figure that there is no way I can lose by picking up a new 2020 even if the 2nd gen turns out to rock my world. I can always trade in in 3 years once the true ability of the new version is know and possibly even avoid any first MY issues that are almost certain to surface.


The biggest questions are going to be: Did they change it enough to open up the demographics a bit so they sell enough to keep going? If they did make those changes is it still going to be a car that interests those that liked the first gen so much? Did they only make the new one because they are contractually obligated or is there still any passion left in the developers so they tried to maintain the ideal of what it started out as?

Yep Had that covered.

Those are sport sedans and a heavy GT. If those get counted as sports cars then the TRD Avalon and Camry are for you:

As a dad with a toddler, the Civic Type R is a very tempting package. I was against FWD until I drove a Renaultsport Megane RS275 last year and it opened my eyes up to how well modern FWD hot hatches can handle and how fun they can be to drive. Sure they'll never be able to match the playfullness of RWD, but they're a hell of a lot better than they used to be.

I sold my 2012 86 a month ago since I've been working from home since March and can use my wife's car a the moment. Wanted to get a good price before the new model came out and tanked first gen values even more.

So far I'm either waiting for news on the new 86/BRZ and STI, buying a Type R or looking very hard at my finances and whether I can afford the 2022 Audi S3 when that drops, because holy hell that interior is gorgeous.

I have two kids 6 and 3 and have a BRZ, granted we have 3 vehicles in the household so that helps. But if I had to choose 1 from your list to replace my BRZ and my RAV4 it would be between the STI and the Audi.
The Type R drives well for what it is, Honda did a fantastic job while keeping the FWD format. But the car is not pretty, I had one for a year and never really fell in love with driving it even though it was faster than my BRZ and had more space etc etc... Hopefully you can swing one vehicle for awhile and get a good sense of the upcoming a models to help decide.

From my perspective, what Toyota and/or Subaru *need* to do is to make a dedicated 2-seat cab-rearward version of the FT86!
Sounds like a Lotus type sports car is more your type of thing? Light, stripped out, more raw. But they are expensive.

As for the second gen, I’m just hoping it is a power bump with the same or less weight. Looks wise, it’s a cautious thumbs up, I do like the front fender humps of the current gen as others have mentioned. Be interesting to see how much or if they are reduced.

Can’t wait until it is revealed to get a proper look and review the specs.

And I'd have an RC-F tomorrow if they'd put a third pedal in one.
