Tesla is still faster.

I think itís hilarious that the biggest WRX defender is making fun of Toyota styling and drives an automatic VWÖ.

No worries, thill. We know you're legit. Same as the Yaris.

Imagine the variety of cars that accomodate the variety of people and their various tastes?!

Also, now's as good a place as any to share: If I had to bother with the 2022 WRX, I wouldn't get the manual. The WRX manual just sucks to drive. I'd rather not even bother with shifting my own gears and get the SPT.

Iíd love to see the GR Yaris here. Even though I wouldnít likely buy one I love the idea of it here in the states.

I honestly love the value proposition of the WRX/STI but I just canít give Subaru my money for mailing it in.

I really am liking the new BRZ/86 a lot though. Iím excited to drive one. I will have some more disposable income in a few years and would love to buy a used one as a fun dedicated track car. At this point Iím leaning Toyota 86 vs BRZ but Iíd take either. I just have had better dealer and service experience with Toyota.

Onlookers, gawkers, etc. Everytime I see one parked (which admittedly is not a lot) there's people checking it out.

Is this what they call "Rally Racing"


Quote:
Elfyn Evans stormed into the lead of the Rally of Finland on Saturday as Sebastien Ogier, chasing an eighth world title, ended the day in fifth place despite being penalised -- for a loose helmet.

Evans, behind the wheel of a Toyota, began the day in third place but swept four stages in the morning to take a firm grip on the event, widely regarded as the fastest on the circuit.

That's a fake rally car. Doesn't have enough plastic. Plus too hatchy.

Thanks I didnít love it when it first came out but it really grew in me. It gets more attention than my C7 or GT350 did.

Car is really fast. I have a piggyback tune and canít imagine what a down pipe and proper tune will do..

That's what I mean. Any time I see one there's people looking at one. There's a guy with a new NSX next to our work building and it gets no attention compared to a Supra. I can't think of another car that gets more attention.

I saw a Supra yesterday in blue with some white Advans, and it was easily the sexiest car I've seen all year.

The shortest distance between two points is a straight line.

The simplest minds require the simplest terms.

First, why Tesla talk in the fantastic car thread?


I've driven all of them, and yes they are blistering in the straights. A couple of hard turns and she's all heffer, eating fast food three times a day. M3P weighs as much as the Ridgeline.

I think itís been that way at least in North America since forever. The most popular racing in NA are the ones with fastest top speeds, and with little to no turns.
