That car is DOA if it shows up at $60K. There's no way it's that expensive.

If we don't have a press release for North America, the story is ****.

Toyota USA got pretty cheeky with an IG post where they all but verified that we’re getting AWD and the 1.6T from the GR Yaris. They snuck the camo’d car into that post, too, so we should see the car soon.

I usually try to put AUS in beginning don't sweat it. Anyway .. In a nut shell in April they said it would be around 42k to 48K. Now they have insider info that it will be 60k. That's in Australia.

Its post 122 this thread 4/23,

And second paragraph below.

The indicated price of the Toyota GR Corolla in Japan is predicted to be between ¥3.5 million and ¥4m which is about $42,000 to $48,000 in Australia.

As stated the real news would be a comment from a Toyota USA telling us if it's going to be in the US line up, how much and specs. They know. I guess long Silence would indicate not coming. If it was they would be beating that drum to death. Toyota pounded us with the v8 IS two years ago. Still not on dealer lots.
It's a shame cause both would be cool Yaris GR. Then again in the US people say crap on the internet and buy trucks, SUV and Caymans with slush boxes..

There reaches a point where it doesn't matter how much performance you throw at it. If the price is out of reach because the performance is out of reach, then the average consumer is out of reach as well.

I'm gonna be super disappointed if this car doesn't make it over here. Would be the perfect daily for me and then I could really turn it up in the STi.

Toyota still has the teaser marketing on their U.S. website for GR Hot Hatch, so we know SOMETHING is coming. We're all just wondering how they'll execute it because per their own words the U.S. is getting a "hot hatch of their own". Needs to have: hatchback, AWD, 6-speed manual, LSD, spunky engine, aggressive design. Toyota's been on the right track with their line-up for the past couple of years, so there's hope.

Subaru, however, has been going off-track, so most of us are giving up hope of the STI actually being desirable. They'll screw up the tried-and-true recipe somewhere.

I could not give two scheisses about the new WRX. I'm perfectly happy with my 2010 STi, but I would love to have a newer car with the same general characteristics. Big hot hatch fan over here, and with the insurance money I got for the 19 WRX I pretty much eliminated a car payment on the STi. I would hate to not have a car payment forever.

Rumours incoming:

https://www.motor1.com/news/547508/t...lla-gr-rumors/

Quote:
Toyota has been focusing on producing performance cars, and it looks like the company isn’t slowing down yet. A new report from CarSensor rounds up the latest rumors about the company’s plans, and there are a few compelling tidbits about the Supra and the GR Corolla. If true, Toyota has some bold models in development that we can’t wait to become a reality.

The publication also reports that the turbocharged 1.6-liter three-cylinder from the GRMN Yaris will find its way into the long-rumored GR Corolla. The engine will allegedly make 295 hp (219 kW), a bit more than the 257 hp (192 kW) it makes in the smaller model. The GR Corolla is destined for North America, competing against the Honda Civic Type R and the Subaru WRX STI. New examples are expected to debut sometime next year, though they’ll compete with the GR Corolla for attention, which will also break cover. Expect to see it sometime next summer.

This might be my next car, since it’s looking like it’ll be AWD almost 300 hp 6mT. The new Type R and Integra are a bit hard to get excited about with the bland design. I’m not a big AWD fan but the GR4 drivetrain is pretty awesome.

skeptical of the 1.6L in a car this size. Might work just fine. Might not. I dunno, it just seems too small on the surface.

Does it matter if it's almost 300 lb-ft of torque? 3 cylinder will sound better than a four at least.

According to this article AWD:

"The Toyota GR Corolla’s mechanical beating heart will be an enhanced version of the Toyota GR Yaris’ bespoke 1.6-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine (200kW/370Nm) that drives all four wheels."

whether we get a tiered approach (FWD, AWD, AWD+diffs) isn't clear, heck, the article is for the Australian market anyways, so in the US we may only get FWD w/open diff and a s***-ton of badges.

If it's FWD it'll be DOA. Especially if they're making it "for North America" in response to North America not getting the GR Yaris. Making it FWD would be totally missing the point.

Has there been any GR product that's FWD?

Edit:

If it's GR, it's RWD or AWD. If it's GR Sport then it can also be FWD, apparently.

Not saying this GR Corolla will be FWD but this reminded me of a hilarious time when the first Lancer Evo was just announced in 2003(?) in the US and I told my friend to get it but the Mitsu dealership offered him a "special edition" Lancer Ralliart (160+hp, FWD, auto) instead for a few grand less. The fact that my friend had even contemplated that option...this is why dealerships have sales reps

If that is the body hiding in plain sight. Oof.

I’m trying to keep my expectations in line though. I figure it won’t be wide body and will be spec’d to fit between WRX and STI.
