Plus at the end of the day, it is a Corolla. It looks like a Corolla too and 300hp isn't very impressive nowadays. With the $ you'll end up paying for one you could get something far better.I just can't get hyped about this car. I would love to purchase one, but I know they're going to be marked up as fuck. They may as well not exist as no regular person will be able to buy one.
they're available south of the border and you can see the wheel isn't on the right hand side in that photo

Well it doesn't look like Optimus primes dick and balls so automatically better across the board.
new CTR looks pretty nice IMO.
i kind of want to upgrade from my 2009 civic si and was thinking the CTR might be it. i do miss the subtle styling of my generation though. Honda has really gone in a different direction after the 9th generation. i don't know if if i will have as much fun though with a non high revving car.
I would sign up for your car & track blog.Journalist friend is driving the car now. Or, was, over the weekend through yesterday, I don't really know.
I got some texts saying to believe the hype. Unlike when we were all told a generation ago due to emissions that we wouldn't get any additional fun cars, IT'S ALL TRUE NOW.
Gasoline engines are basically done. Barring some global change of mindset, this unreal 3cylinder engine will likely be the final performance oriented engine that the entire Toyota group will produce.
This journalist said there are no strings they could pull, not a single corporate connection they could use to get one of these. People that could do that have copy/paste emails they send to inquiries from their contacts list asking for assistance.
The thing for us to do, is to put orders in and hope that people ahead of us drop off. Find an ethical dealer, maybe buy a Tacoma and Highlander from it and hope they have a legitimate way to govern a waiting list for the GR.
Ultimately, almost all of us don't really want this car, but we do need this car to get us through the next half decade when anything under 50k that is emotionally rewarding to drive will be non-existent.
Journalist friend said car was parked over the weekend at a resort type hotel. Came out in the morning and four notes on the car wanting to buy it. One said "price no object".
I guess....believe the hype. Everyone wants to be first to get it.
Golf R as fun daily beater and a GT porsche weekend fun car is all u need bbMost of these cars that come from automakers with successful racing pedigrees look like shit.
I would never call a Evo, Sti, or a Civic Type-R pretty.
That's what the Golfs and Elantras are for.
