    Well said. I like the styling. May go this next week and check it out in the flesh.

    With 65 less HP, this car is NOT in the same league as an ST...

    No thank you. I'll keep the ST. The mirrors look weird. it's a want a be.

    You are all like salesman that work for my company. You only read what you want to read. All of you read over the word "could". Meaning "could" be a competitor if they made an engine on par with the ST.

    "Just for looks" concept mirrors. Probably no where near DOT legal.

    It looks nice until the front of the car which seems drawn out too much. Maybe if they had gone with a flatter front / grill area rather than slanting it like that, it would fit with the rest of the car more. Other than that, looks pretty nice.

    Isn't there already a Lexus "no so hot" hatch already? This must be a generic version

    Never? You are mistaken. It just feels like forever... ;)

    Forgot about the MR2 Turbo? Matrix XRS? FRS? Celica GT4?

    Ok, ok. I meant, this century.

    Don't forget about your Hammer pants you wore when you drove your MR2.

    Those where all in this century, minus the GT4. FRS being current.

    EDIT, I thought the MR2T extended to 2001 but I was mistaken, 1999 was the last year.

    FRS is a Subaru. Don't consider that a Toyota engine.

    LOL actually I was a late comer to the MR2. I owned a mint condition original owner 93 MR2 a couple years back. Should have never sold it. It is the only car I've driven that handled better than the FiST...though that rear end LOVE to swing around at times.

    See the forest through the trees. You said never (you actually put it in ALL CAPS), I said no, actually they have produced high performance 4 cyls. Ok let's take the FRS out even though it is also a Toyota engineered motor. Still have the MR2/MRS, Matrix XRS, Celica GT4.

    Anyway, point is, it just feels like they haven't produced a high performance 4 cyl in ages, but it ain't never.

    EDIT. Also forgot about the Celica GTS

    Hammer pants....MR2...Celica...that was the hay day...A tear is falling as I Hammer slide from side to side...remember the 280z?

    MMmmmmm 280z. I still want to find one of those. I'd even be OK with a major restoration project. One day maybe. But yes, Toyota has made some nice 4cyls in the past. :) More so in the 90s during the age of sports cars, but by no means are they a stranger to them.
