what a good idea. i think i'll pop down the dealership and ask about that myself. i saw a vid somewhere of 2 japaneses doing skids in them, look fun (although modern ugly got all over them) good to see new back to basics rwd cars being built. fuck all that padelshiftsemiautotractioncontrol shite they keep inventing to make the retarded populus egos swell up thinking they are really good drivers yada yada yada.... ahem...
I'm not mad on the looks but its nice looking for a new car, pretty much only this and the monaro (and new gen yank revivals) I actually can happily stand to look at without wanting to attack them with a terex scrap grab.
Could never bring myself to have a car on finance though, or buy a new car in fact Why not wait 2 years, get it 'run in' (20k miles) at half the price?. Toyota website recons base spec manual (why have anything else?) is a hair under £25k. But IIRC you pay 450 extra for the paint, even basic colours like black, white and 650 for some others... WTF... can I just have it in primer then and I'll rattle can it satin or matt black myself? (I'm going to actually ask them that)
EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot a BIG point... its a subaru basically. With a boxer engine. Built by Fuji Heavy Industries alongside cargo ships and construction equipment. WTF was wrong with a beams 3S-GE, and the gearbox and diff from an IS200 or MKIV supra?
