I think the design of that steering wheel is not going to age well.

I'd much rather prefer the same info to be displayed on a HUD reflection in the windshield, fighter jet / Corvette style.

This is a Japanese market oriented product line which has not been intended for abroad. And Japan has glass smooth asphalt in most places, so over there, this is not a problem at all. There are great 19" tire choices there as well.

I've used 19" in California and bent my rims on $3000 sets of Vossen-Work on my FR-S though. LOL

You are right about American roads. We can't play with ultra low profile tires... Tesla didn't know this very well and had a havoc with their Model S in the last few years.

Well, seeing it with 5x100 lugs, the centerlock design seems to be just a decorative touch as centercaps.

I like the steering wheel design, minus the LED tid bits. Hopefully they will offer that as an option.

Original 1st Gen Chief Designer, Mr.Furukawa and the SARD GT1

Original 1st Gen Chief Designer, Mr.Furukawa, didn't have any input on the second generation GR86/BRZ, but it seems he has had the task of exterior design concept of the 2nd Gen's SARD GT1 Concept.

He sent me this to share, and while he isn't in charge of SARD Racing's product plans and exports, he hopes that his design will be available in the USA and Europe.

Front end has kind of a Tesla vibe to it. I kinda dig it! Also that wing is perfect.

I like the wing and the tail lights. The rest is a bit awkward looking

Love the color.

I have to wonder if the side panels don't end up causing an issue where it creates a channel between the built-in aero and the added black lip. Maybe it's not as big a gap as it looks but it seems like it would cause issues (not to mention not crazy how it looks).

As @saltywetman says, it just doesn't look exactly right, particularly at the rear.

Same here. The only thing I like on any of them so far is the color-matched trunk trim strip.

There's some beautiful work here (and some off choices) but I just feel like we've seen a lot of this with the first BRZ/FR-S introduction almost 10 years ago. A lot of stick-on body parts and anodized suspension bits.

Maybe I'm just getting old...

Nothing wrong with keeping the concepts that were popular and having another generation of enthusiasts continue to enjoy it I suppose!

For people in highly restricted places like California and parts of Europe where engine swaps are next to impossible or really cumbersome and expensive to legalize, the updated engine is a really welcome change I think.
