    Just on a tangent here but the only rust issue on the 86 is the front quarter window which was a known issue on the early cars. Easily sorted under warranty by the newer version of the part which doesn't have the same issue.

    So after all this waiting, and a few days before the official unveiling the promo leaks.




    Not sold on it at all.

    Something about the side panel and side skirt looks a bit tame. Was expecting more aggression in the looks department. But I overall it looks fine and I think it will age well.

    I wonder if they will use that as an Ad on UK TV lol. I remember the gt86 one being banned because it "encouraged fast driving" or some BS :D

    Not really overly keen on the front bumper area but other than that it's a lovely looking car.

    It will look better in person I think. But are people going to buy this instead of a Cayman?

    I think the only reason you would is for Japanese reliability and much lower maintenance costs, but then it's using a BMW engine so...

    Would love a more rounded aggrisve front, without the weird bit in the middle.

    But IMO it looks fantastic.

    I still like it, but I'd hoped it was going to look like this -

    The lines are pretty close.

    The tiny mirrors and jumbo wheels were never going to happen, they never do, the ride would be awful with wheels that big and it would be slower. The side vents aren't necessary on a front engined car :p

    It's not a bad looking car but it just looks like a facelifted GT86.

    Looks great IMO. A modern Z4 Coupe. This year might consider one of these or an M2.
    Picture of my old Z4 for comparison.

    For me it doesn’t have the WOW factor that the original had when it was released.
