This picture was taken at a car meet in SoCal 12/10. Pretty sure the car isn't available for purchase yet. So either some tool paid a ridiculous ransom to get it early, or someone w/ access to one took it out for a joy ride.

I am not a fan of the "huge wheels filling the well" look that is so prevalent today. Makes everything look like a bad Hot Wheels toy.

I just got to work, but when I get home I will upload photos of that car that I took at the SEMA show in Vegas like a month and 1/2 ago. I thought the car was unique, but my wife said it was her favorite car at the show. I thought it was a "concept car", not something that would hit the streets anytime soon...

Check out the existing thread on the Subaru BRZ. They are virtually the same car with some minor suspension calibration, content and subtle appearance differences.

Let's hear opinions about body styles:
For instance, I think the sexiest body style of any car is a 3rd gen RX7. I also like 1st gen camaro bodys, 65-66 mustang fastbacks, old flat fender ****** jeeps, etc.
It's just cool how an automaker puts out many different body styles with the same name on it, but there is always a preference in date/ body lines.

This thread is a needless duplicate of the BRZ thread and is terrible. I hate you guys.

And here I thought there'd be at least an appreciation of a car built with driving dynamics as a key consideration. But no, no one can move past the image the car projects nor its perceived demographic.

It's the Miata all over again.
