i kind of want to get into a car that i can have fun driving around. i can raise my Jetta but at the end of the day its still a 4 cylinder Jetta. but then i realize that i drive maybe 3000 miles a year so it makes no sense to spend money on a car.
-it isn't 300hp
-it isn't $20k (although damn close enough for me)
-there is no STi version on launch
-not enough torks yo
-TCL seems to hate N/A cars with less cylinders than fingers on fapping hand lately
-it isn't German
-the Toyota version will not be a Supra
-the US version will be badged as a Scion, and we are all fearing the ****ty commercials already
-it isn't American
-for a Japanese car, it isn't a Nissan or a Honda
-it's boxer powered
-it isn't as interesting looking as the concept (no ****)
-it is about the same weight and power of an E30 M3 (20 ****ing years later!)
-your move Hyundai/Kia (the Genesis is a fat pig now)
-it wasn't sculpted in an Italian design house half of TCL can't spell or pronounce correctly
-despite the naysayers predicting flop, I think over time many users in TCL will own one
-Toyota and Subaru should stick to what they are good at (Shomegrown )
-I want one
Building off your post...it seems like there are a bunch of broke kids in TCL who lust over $5000 Miatas and 4.0s because they can actually own them in the near term. That, and there are a ton of people who are in the ~$20K budget range when car shopping. In other words, the Rich-off thread in here is the exception rather than the rule. This car is going to be one of the more accessible, NEW, performance cars out there that seems to be designed for enthusiasts, BY enthusiasts...yet people still manage to complain.
The entire TCL BRZ Torque thread belongs in the OT First World Problems thread.People have too many things to complain about.
Note: I still haven't seen the thread in question. I'm just referring to the fact that after a while, it just seems to be the same ol' stuff over and over. At least to me.
