I think the context was that if Subaru had to R&D BRZ entirely on their own, they wouldn't have R&D budget left for WRX/STI, in response to people wondering why Subaru didn't go it alone on the RWD coupe. If Subaru had to choose between developing a BRZ or continuing WRX/STI, they're going to choose WRX/STI. Having Toyota as a partner on the RWD coupe allowed them to do both things.
Maybe we're saying the same thing here.
