Has bigger Front brakes than the Supra and has actual matching calipers in the back. Not the OEM branded BS calipers that BMW, MB, AUDI, etc put on their cars.

Torque, this is like someone striking a deadly blow with a knife. Just let them bleed out. instead, the assailant stabs the victim 30 more times!

I think we will get a real GR Corolla. Spec is the real question, though. Compete with the GTI with FWD and 250hp 1.6T? Compete with the WRX with open diffs, AWD, 250hp or 270hp 1.6T? Hit some weird middle ground between the WRX and STI by putting all the trick drivetrain bits from the top GR Yaris? I figure we will find out in January.

The weight is heavy for the given 3 cylinder and small size.

The GR Yaris would be a great Subaru Justy STI rebadge. I hope we get a version close to the world spec. GR Yaris.

The R would like own on a dry track as well. The chassis on the CTR is superb. Let's see what the next iteration brings.

Yeah its pretty awesome. But I didn't realize the GR Yaris is more expensive than a CTR

CTR is not a GR Yaris. Nothing is.

I would take the GR-4 over a CTR. I like small cars so a small AWD car is much more appealing than a large FWD car. Also the GR-4 is more special.
