It's probably this or the Type R, but if the GR is half as fun to drive as the GR4, it wins.

I'm ok with a 270 hp GTI fighter or 320 hp Gold R competitor, but I want at least the AWD from the GR4 if not the diffs. If it's FWD, that's just an FU from Toyota America and I'll pass.

No way. Is that true? How could it look so similar yet be so much longer? So stupid.

If it comes with or has an option for the circuit pack (front/rear torsen LSD's), it's my next car. If not, it's an 86/BRZ. It's just a question of which Toyota product. The MT article is half correct. While tuners in Japan are hitting that HP, tuners in Australia are already at 450-475 HP at the hubs. If the diffs come it's a Golf R/STi competitor. No diffs then they will target the WRX and I won't buy an AWD car without those diffs. They f'd us on the Yaris so I'm not taking it a second time. I'd rather just spend less and get a RWD platform. Hopefully we know something soon. They have to show the car by Spring. It's been in the works the whole time.

Yeah I am struck by that too. Varmint where did you get that information from? Have official specs/dimensions been released for the Integra?

The Acura guy who mentioned the length said they wanted it to look like a sedan. I don’t think you can understand this crap unless you work for Acura. It’s 2” shorter than a Mustang.

Acura product planner in this article says it’s 1-2” longer than the sedan which means 6-7” longer than the hatch. You can see the overhangs are larger especially the rear.

https://www.autoblog.com/2021/11/15/acura-integra-prototype-explained/

“None of the sheetmetal is shared with either the four-door or the five-door Civic,” Rivers explains. “And I attest it to, it’s like the mix of those two body styles, because if you actually had the five-door [Civic Hatchback] next to this car, it’s significantly different. This is an inch or two longer than the Sedan. Because we’ve made the roof such a sloping line, it gives hatchback five-door vibes, but really it’s a sedan in shape, and also has that versatility with the hatchback.”

One more teaser pic and I'm going to start thinking this Toyota's US marketing team is in their late 20's, hipster-looking like with Leica cameras around their necks who've never driven a manual car.

If you squint and zoom in on the camouflaged car it says “diffstimestwopre”.

I think.

Not sure if this teaser pic was in that video or not but seems like there will be news sooner than later.

He's just joking i think.

Toyota put a manual in the Corolla hatch already, the engineers are on board, if not the marketing team (who used an auto in the teaser photo lol).

Oh! I forgot that's why I posted the last video, because TDIB got to sit with Toyota execs over dinner and gave some insight into them suppressing their excitement over the new GR Corolla.

I thought HTBS was always ranting about an AWD version of the BRZ.

No no no no. HTBS wanted an H6 turbo AWD coupe 6MT.

So did Mazda with the 3, then they gave it a turbo and AWD and made it AT only.
